Solar Panel Project

 I added a second solar panel to the RV. This should help charge the house batteries faster,  when traveling down the road.

Pic Of The Week: Pennsylvania Dutch Farm

This would not mean much to you guys,  but I met some really nice people while on a customer visit.  A guy named Lamar who is a farmer in Pennsylvania and a guy named Mike, a veteran from New York state. We all shared a similar view from Lamar's property.

A Hectic Weekend

 Sometimes in IT, things can get hectic.  I have a costumer whose log files filled up the hard drives on two of their firewalls.  One in Alabama and one in Tuscaloosa.  This happened on a Friday night. 

So my customer had to be back up on Monday at open of business day. So off I went.  First to the Alabama site on Saturday,  then drove to the Pennsylvania site on Sunday.  I was able to reinstall the firewalls from scratch and do a restore of the configurations and have everything back up and going without issue by Sunday evening.  

I have said recently that interstates are for getting somewhere,  and the back roads are for seeing the country.  I always emit the back roads better.

PBR: Policy Based Routing On Aruba 3810

 Quick example that I did on an Aruba 3810 to force traffic out to another firewall.

============== Begin =====================

class ipv4 "Camera"

     10 ignore ip 192.168.1.45 0.0.0.0 10.0.0.0 0.255.255.255

     20 match ip 192.168.1.45 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.255

   exit

policy pbr "Camera"

     10 class ipv4 "Camera"

      action ip next-hop 10.102.12.2

      exit

   exit

vlan 10

   name "Camaras"

   untagged 1/10,2/10

   ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.252.0

   service-policy "Camera" in

   exit

============ End ===================

As you all know, White Rhino Security does all vendor firewalls. For our small office, budget related customers,  we have been moving away from Sonicwall and are moving them to pfSense. We decided to make a pfSense blog page, with posts only related to pfSense and related items.

Firewall Migration: Fortinet To Cisco

 It's a time consuming process, but manual moves of the configuration is just what you have to do.  Even if there was a migration tool, I've never seen anything that worked really great.
