This article discusses the process to Bridge the Ethernet switch with the SFP+ ports on the Netgate 7100 firewall appliance. The process is simple enough but there is amazingly little documentation available to help you through the process. As indicated in the title, we’re going to Bridge ports on theRead more

In this article we’re going to walk through installing Docker on Ubuntu, starting a few Docker containers, and then running those containers behind a reverse proxy. When we’re done, you’ll have a load balance terminating SSL (TLS) connections with multiple Docker containers running the workload. This is how it willRead more
This article discusses the pfSense Netgate VLAN Trunk configuration. We’re using the Netgate 7100 as the firewall appliance, and a TPLink T2500G-10TS (common and fairly generic) switch to form a Trunk between. We have a computer on each side of the Trunk, each in a different subnet. See the diagramRead more
This article discusses my recent experiences with 4G/5G fail-over for a small business running a Netgate 3100 pfSense firewall appliance. The model of the Netgate firewall appliance isn’t important. If you’re using a USB device for the 4G/5G, then it’s the pfSense drivers that matter. The question is, which 4G/5GRead more
This article shows how to implement a small Node.js application that pulls data from a local MySQL server. We’re doing this on a CentOS server but that’s not important – any Linux will do. But if you’re using Windows, the installation process will differ. yum install nodejs npm install mysqlRead more
Sometimes we don’t want the public knowing the versions of Apache and PHP running on our servers. This article shows how to hide that information. We’re using CentOS 7 for this example but the only difference really is the location of the configuration file for the Vhosts. Hide the ApacheRead more
If you want to create a customised password list for a specific target (client, I hope), this article is for you. It’s basically just a re-write of “https://karimlalji.wordpress.com/2018/04/26/password-guessing-mangle-a-custom-wordlist-with-cewl-and-hashcat/” which I’ll probably forget later so I’m documenting here. We don’t just want a list of passwords, we want a list ofRead more
This article demonstrates how to mount “https://live.sysinternals.com/tools” on Linux so that it’s accessible at “/mnt/sysinternals”, for example. On CentOS: yum install davfs2 On Ubuntu: apt install davfs2 Mount it: mount -t davfs https://live.sysinternals.com/tools /mnt/sysinternals Now you can access it at: # ls /mnt/sysinternals/ accesschk64.exe diskext.exe pipelist.exe RegDelNull.exe accesschk.exe Diskmon.exe PORTMON.CNTRead more

In this article, we’re assuming we have multiple sites (remote offices) using Unifi networking gear, and a central network (in Azure or AWS for example) running pfSense as the firewall. We want an IPSec site-to-site VPN between them in a spoke topology. The Unifi networks will connect to the pfSenseRead more
