When I first started this website, my purpose was to simply have a place I could post things that were useful to me and that I could access from anywhere. It didn’t take me long to realize that the things I was documenting were also helpful to lots of other people. This is one of […]

Authenticating Cisco Devices Against Active Directory

March 30, 2010

Many packets ago, in a network several hops away, I wrote about configuring Cisco devices against FreeRADIUS. Since then, I’ve received many requests for a similar post, but with Active Directory as the backend for authentication. I finally got around to knocking that out this past weekend. Because Windows is “graphical”, I felt it would be […]

JunOS PSN-2010-01-623 Exploit

January 9, 2010

This code works for me, over and over again. Let me know if it works for you. Sorry about the shitty quality of the video, all I had handy was my Blackberry. UPDATE: I’ve posted a much better video of the PSN-2010-01-623 exploit in action. $ cat #!/usr/bin/perl my $host = shift; my $port […]

Configuring HDLC over MPLS (Video)

September 15, 2009

Lately I’ve become interested in MPLS and, unfortunately, have stopped studying what I should be studying and started playing around with MPLS instead. One thing that just fascinates me is AToM, or Any Transport over MPLS. From Cisco: “Any Transport over MPLS (AToM) is Cisco’s solution for transporting Layer 2 packets over an IP/MPLS backbone.” […]

Getting BGP routes into dynamips (with video)

August 21, 2009

UPDATE: If you’re not interesting in doing this yourself and just want to see it in action, check out the video, “Dumping 265k BGP routes into dynamips”.

Video: Update ProCurve software via TFTP

August 17, 2009

Nothing earth-shattering here, but back in February, I posted “Upgrading ProCurve firmware via TFTP”. Since that time, I’ve started posting video demos of some of the things I write about, so I thought I’d make up a quick one for this task as well.

Configuring PPP over Frame-Relay

August 4, 2009

I made a quick video showing how to configure PPP over frame-relay. Well, actually I went a bit farther than that. Here’s the topology: First, we create two loopbacks on each router, then create a PPP connection between R1 and R3 and another between R1 and R4. Just for fun, we then throw OSPF into […]
