Ubuntu Linux Add Static IPv6 Address Network Configuration. ByVivek GiteonJune 19, 2009 How do I configure static IPv6 networking under Ubuntu Linux server operating systems? You need to simply edit /etc/network/interfaces file and add the IPv6 networking configuration. Here is our sample setup: Ipv6 Address IP: 2607:f0d0:2001:000a:0000:0000:0000:0010/64Ipv6 Gateway IP: 2607:f0d0:2001:000a:0000:0000:0000:0001Interface name: eth0IPv6 Type: Static WARNING! These examples are not about an IPv6 tunnel broker. This faq requires static IPv6 address which can be obtained from your network admin or ISP. Adding IPv6 To Ubuntu Systems Open /etc/network/interfaces file, enter (first login as root): $ sudo -s Make a backup and edit the file: # cp /etc/network/interfaces /etc/network/interfaces.backup # vi /etc/network/interfaces Append configuration as follows: Save and close the file.

Test IPv6 Configuration You can also run a traceroute: # traceroute6 Sample Output: Further Readings: Change Ubuntu Server from DHCP to a Static IP Address. If the Ubuntu Server installer has set your server to use DHCP, you will want to change it to a static IP address so that people can actually use it. Changing this setting without a GUI will require some text editing, but that’s classic linux, right? Let’s open up the /etc/network/interfaces file. I’m going to use vi, but you can choose a different editor sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces For the primary interface, which is usually eth0, you will see these lines: auto eth0iface eth0 inet dhcp As you can see, it’s using DHCP right now. Auto eth0iface eth0 inet static address netmask network broadcast gateway Now we’ll need to add in the DNS settings by editing the resolv.conf file: sudo vi /etc/resolv.conf On the line ‘name server’ replace the x with the IP of your name server.

You need to also remove the dhcp client for this to stick (thanks to Peter for noticing). Sudo apt-get remove dhcp-client. Configuring NTP on Windows Server 2012 | Sysadmin Lab. This article explains how to configure NTP on Windows Server 2012. If you're looking for Windows Server 2008 R2, see my article here. Remember, that in a domain environment, time synchronization is taken care of but you should configure the PDC Emulator of a domain to sync externally since that is the server which decides what time it is!

This is all you need if you want to keep it simple. Run using PowerShell as admin: w32tm /config / /syncfromflags:MANUAL Stop-Service w32time Start-Service w32time If the machine is a VM inside Hyper-V, you have to disable time sync. Open VM settings -> Management -> Integration Services and uncheck Time Synchronization. That should be it! W32tm is the command to use. Which NTP-server to use? The is a round-robin of random selected NTP servers. w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:"" /syncfromflags:MANUAL Just keep adding them with a space in between them. Don't forget your firewall. Selected ASDM VPN Configuration Procedures for the Cisco ASA 5500 Series, Version 5.2 - Configuring L2TP over IPSec [Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager]

Table Of Contents Configuring L2TP over IPSec L2TP Overview IPSec Transport and Tunnel Modes Configuring L2TP over IPSec Configuring L2TP over IPSec This chapter describes how to use ASDM to configure L2TP over IPSec on the security appliance, and includes the following topics: •L2TP Overview •Configuring L2TP over IPSec L2TP Overview The primary benefit of configuring L2TP with IPSec in a remote access scenario is that remote users can access a VPN over a public IP network without a gateway or a dedicated line, enabling remote access from virtually anyplace with POTS. An additional benefit is that the only client requirement for VPN access is the use of Windows 2000 with Microsoft Dial-Up Networking (DUN). No additional client software, such as Cisco VPN client software, is required. The configuration of L2TP with IPSec supports certificates using the pre-shared keys or RSA signature methods, and the use of dynamic (as opposed to static) crypto maps.

KB0000571 - Cisco ASA5500 - L2TP over IPSEC VPN. KB ID 0000571 Dtd 16/02/12 Problem When Cisco released version 7 of the operating system for PIX/ASA they dropped support for the firewall acting as a PPTP VPN device. Note: If you want to use PPTP you can still terminate PPTP VPNs on a Windows server, if you enable PPTP and GRE Passthrough on the ASA. But if you want to use the native Windows VPN client you can still use L2TP over IPSEC. I had a look around the net to work out how to do this and most decent articles are written using the older versions of the ASDM, and the CLI information I found on Cisco's site didn't help either. Bottom line: - Use the ASDM to configure L2TP VPN's, and there's so many bits you need to alter, you might as well have done it from command line anyway. What I'm using 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Opsview supports the use of monitoring agents to gather data from remote devices.

The most common types of monitoring agents used with Opsview are SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) and NRPE (Nagios Remote Plugin Executor). Generic Agents SNMP agents are provided with all managed network devices such as switches, routers and firewalls. SNMP polling is the standard method for gathering data, monitoring plugins exist for all commonly used devices. SNMP may also be used for server monitoring. Net-SNMP is a very capable agent for Unix / Linux system.

Successful monitoring of Microsoft Windows servers usually requires purchase of a third party SNMP agent as the standard Microsoft agent is very limited. Opsview is capable of processing SNMP traps sent by agents to the monitoring server. NRPE provides two components: NRPE plugin This is installed on the monitoring server and queries remote NRPE agents.

NRPE daemon SSL is used by default to encrypt data. NSClient++ Opsview Agents Microsoft Agent.

Opsview4.4:faq - Opsview Documentation. Installation and Initial Configuration I'm having trouble with the Opsview installation - can I get any help? If you have issues installing, sign up to the forums and post a question in the relevant topic. Try to put in as much information as you can, especially: Which platform? How are you installing?

The forums are frequently viewed by our engineers, and others in the community may help. We want everyone to be able to install Opsview, so we'll do our best to fix any issues and get your system up and running. Why do I keep getting asked to authenticate? Please check that the time is correct on the Opsview server, as an incorrect system time can cause session cookies to expire. It is strongly recommended to use NTP as time synchronisation is critical to accurate monitoring. See also the next question. Why is the time in the UI different to that on the system The date/time on the server is correct, but parts of the UI show an incorrect time. Unset TZ opsview-web restart Are you an LDAP user? 1.

Introduction Clientless SSL VPN (WebVPN) allows for limited but valuable secure access to the corporate network from any location. Users can achieve secure browser-based access to corporate resources at anytime. This document provides a straightforward configuration for the Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) 5500 series to allow Clientless SSL VPN access to internal network resources.

The SSL VPN technology can be utilized in three ways: Clientless SSL VPN, Thin-Client SSL VPN (Port Forwarding), and SSL VPN Client (SVC Tunnel Mode). 1. A remote client needs only an SSL-enabled web browser to access http- or https-enabled web servers on the corporate LAN. 2. A remote client must download a small, Java-based applet for secure access of TCP applications that use static port numbers. Refer to Thin-Client SSL VPN (WebVPN) on ASA using ASDM Configuration Example in order to learn more about the Thin-Client SSL VPN. 3.

DansGuardian - True Web Content Filtering for All. Five content filters suitable for both home and business.

Jack Wallen identifies five content access management and filtering apps. I am not one to advocate a Big Brother-esque environment for business as that does little for morale or instilling a two-way sense of trust. But there are companies out there that must lock down machines, for whatever reason, and need the tools to do so. Home use, of course, is a different story - where young children are susceptible to falling into the clutches of the wealth of mature content the web has to offer. When you need to block content, it's a relief to know there are plenty of tools out there that do the job. I have identified five such tools that I believe can do the trick for anyone willing (or needing) to take the time to get these products set up and running properly. Some are a bit easier than others; but, in the end, they all do a great job of protecting you, your company, your employees, or your children.
