Looking for recommendations for an NBN RSP. We're in one of the last areas
to be built out, and it's finally time to switch from ADSL to FTTN. We're
only ~100M or so from the cabinet so I'm expecting a reasonable connection
(as far as FTTN is 'reasonable').
So far I've narrowed the list to Aussie Broadband and Superloop, which look
reasonably on par. Any recommendations, or other suggestions?
I'll also need to do an equipment upgrade in the near future. Thinking of
replacing our stopgap all-in-one device with Ubiquiti kit, e.g. an
EdgeRouter, POE AP, switch. Anyone have experience with this? Is it
overkill for a small home network?
I have been running extremely well since taking the advice and receiving
the support of many on this list. I am grateful those members everyday
for its stability.
Ed Chan has been an amazing support in creating some backup solutions
which have automated the process of achieving efficient data redundancy.
I have a Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS distro with a RAID 1 pair under btrfs.And
now I am considering upgrading to another LTS release.
Will the commands relating to the RAID survive the upgrade, will the
script work from Ed survive the upgrade?
In my work as a photographer I find myself in need of GMIC in GIMP, but
the latest iteration of GMIC is what I need to recover some work I
recently shot. And the latest version of GMIC needs Ubuntu 20.10.

I've been with Netspace/Westnet/iiNet since the 90s and they've been ok..
On NBN100/40 FTTN business account, according to Samknows/ACCC speed
monitoring, I'm getting average of 96.4/36.8 with peaks in low demand times
Now that iiNet's been absorbed by TPG, I might consider Aussie first if
choosing from scratch..

I've been thinking about Ubiquiti myself - what gave me pause was that the
UniFi USG with DPI enabled seems to be limited to 85Mbps throughput. Not
sure I want to shave that off, but also not sure I want to turn off DPI. Am
curious to hear how other folks have set themselves up. Have heard little
bits about EdgeRouter etc.. Right now I'm using an Asus RT-AC5300 with some
third party firmware mods.
I've been doing some work on the LUV server and noticed that it was supporting
old SSL protocols. I disabled TLS 1.1 as ssllabs will no longer give a rating
higher than B to a site that uses it, with that change we get an A+! I think
this is no big deal as this only prevents access from Android below version
5.0 (NB Chrome on Android 4.x works fine, it's the Android internal browser
that no-one would ever want to use on our site that fails), and some
particularly ancient versions of Safari and IE.
The above URL gives the test results.
I disabled all the weaker ciphers that aren't being used.
The cipher TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA is weak but is required to
support IE11 on Windows versions before 10 and Safari versions before 9. Is
it worth keeping?

My colleagues and I are scratching our heads to figure out what goes
wrong when we are setting up a new ProFTPd server and connecting to an
older LDAP server (CentOS 5 - we want all refurbished at the end).
The new ProFTPd is on Ubuntu 20.04 and uses mod_ldap.
We can connect to the LDAP server, getting uid etc., but then it says:
2020-10-22 12:27:22,998 mod_ldap/2.9.4: bad password for user ftptest
It works if we use the "old fashioned way" as our old server had:
Interestingly, the LDAP server gives back, using ldapsearch
When using a system user, I have this:
# getent shadow|grep -i ftptest
I wonder what the password hash above is, they all start with
"e0NSWVBUf" , and whether we are missing anything in the ProFTPd
configuration so it 'understands' it.
As said, the OpenLDAP server runs on CentOS5, so it is old, very old..
(openldap-2.3.43-3.el5), don't ask me why it's still there ;-)
Do you have any ideas what I can do to get ProFTPd working with it?
