release-6

It will be available from the mirrors listed at shortly. OpenSSH is a 100% complete SSH protocol version 1.3, 1.5 and 2.0 implementation and includes sftp client and server support. Once again, we would like to thank the OpenSSH community for their continued support of the project, especially those who contributed code or patches, reported bugs, tested snapshots or donated to the project.

More information on donations may be found at: Future Deprecation Notice ========================= The 7.0 release of OpenSSH, due for release in late July, will deprecate several features, some of which may affect compatibility or existing configurations.

If you have questions, ask on the freebsd-arm mailing list. What is Raspberry Pi? The Raspberry Pi launched in early 2012 as an inexpensive ($35) PC based on a Broadcom BCM2835 SoC. It was developed by the UK-based Raspberry Pi foundation as an inexpensive system for educational use. There are several versions of the Raspberry Pi: The "Model B" includes Ethernet, 2 USB ports and originally included 256MB RAM. What works How to Boot the Raspberry Pi.

Home RSS Search April 07, 2014 with HTTP, HTTPS SSL and Reverse Proxy Examples Nginx is a secure, fast and efficient web server. It can be configured to serve out files or be a reverse proxy depending on your application.

What makes this web server different from Apache, Lighttpd or thttpd is the overall efficiency of the daemon, the number of configuration options and how easy it is to setup. Nginx ("engine x") is a high-performance HTTP server and reverse proxy server. Security methodology behind our configuration. Network Tuning and Performance Guide.

Home RSS Search November 12, 2013 Many of today's desktop systems and servers come with on board gigabit network controllers. Optimizing NGINX TLS Time To First Byte (TTTFB) By Ilya Grigorik on December 16, 2013 Network latency is one of our primary performance bottlenecks on the web.

Optimizing NGINX TLS Time To First Byte (TTTFB)

In the worst case, new navigation requires a DNS lookup, TCP handshake, two roundtrips to negotiate the TLS tunnel, and finally a minimum of another roundtrip for the actual HTTP request and response — that's five network roundtrips to get the first few bytes of the HTML document! Modern browsers try very hard to anticipate and predict user activity to hide some of this latency, but speculative optimization is not a panacea: sometimes the browser doesn't have enough information, at other times it might guess wrong.

This is why optimizing Time To First Byte (TTFB), and TLS TTFB in particular due to the extra roundtrips, is critical for delivering a consistent and optimized web experience. The why and the how of TTFB. How to monitor ZFS with SNMP in FreeBSD? Moving away from puppet: SaltStack or Ansible? Over the past month at Lyft we’ve been working on porting our infrastructure code away from Puppet.

Moving away from puppet: SaltStack or Ansible?

We had some difficulty coming to agreement on whether we wanted to use SaltStack (Salt) or Ansible. We were already using Salt for AWS orchestration, but we were divided on whether Salt or Ansible would be better for configuration management. We decided to settle it the thorough way by implementing the port in both Salt and Ansible, comparing them over multiple criteria.

DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an email validation system designed to detect email spoofing by providing a mechanism to allow receiving mail exchangers to check that incoming mail from a domain is authorized by that domain's administrators and that the email (including attachments) has not been modified during transport.

Internet Protocol Version 6 Address Space. IPv6 address. IPv6 is the successor to the first addressing infrastructure of the Internet, Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4).

IPv6 address

In contrast to IPv4, which defined an IP address as a 32-bit value, IPv6 addresses have a size of 128 bits. Therefore, IPv6 has a vastly enlarged address space compared to IPv4. Decomposition of an IPv6 address into its binary form. IPv6 address classes[edit] IPv6 addresses are classified by the primary addressing and routing methodologies common in networking: unicast addressing, anycast addressing, and multicast addressing.[1] A unicast address identifies a single network interface.

Address formats[edit] An IPv6 address consists of 128 bits.[1] Addresses are classified into various types for applications in the major addressing and routing methodologies: unicast, multicast, and anycast networking. Remote execution tutorial. Command reference.
