SSHFP not always working

2011-02-27 (88) by Ton Kersten, tagged as sshfp

I'm trying to make SSHFP work. With these fingerprints in DNSSEC it should be possible to verify a host through DNSSEC.

It seems I'm not the only one having problems. Take a look at Jan-Piet Mens blog.

At the moment I'm trying to link libbind9 with OpenSSH to use the Bind resolver instead of the standard libresolv. This is suggested in this bug report, but I do not have that working, yet.

Accoring to this link it should be fully working with glibc version 2.11+. So it will not work on Redhat 5 or CentOS. On OpenBSD things work as expected and on OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) they don't.

I've checked these Linux operating systems:

OS and Version (g)libc version Working
Ubuntu 10.04 2.11 Yes
Ubuntu 11.04 2.12 Yes
Ubuntu 11.10 2.13 Yes
Fedora 14 2.13 Yes
CentOS 5 2.5 No
CentOS 6 2.12 Yes
Arch Linux 2.13 Yes

Switching to WordPress

2011-02-26 (87) by Ton Kersten, tagged as blog

I've been using nanoblogger for a long time now, but it has some grave disadvantages. First of all it looks like development has stopped. And when I add a new blog entry it takes ages for it to come online.

So I'm in the process of switching to WordPress. As you can see I have a lot of old entries converted (not all yet, but that's just a matter of hard grinding work).

Let me know if you like it.

Added the download area

This afternoon I switched to WordPress completely. I found a little Perl script to import my previous posts. Oke, not completely nice and all, but better this than cut and paste.

But I missed my downloads. It's not much, but I want them back. So I did. WordPress has a very nice download manager, so I installed it and added all files. Created a download page and added the categories.

Enjoy and in the IPv6 Hall of Fame

Today I checked my IPv6 connectivity in the [IPv6 test]{} and this resulted in

IPv6 Check for

and as a result both domains are now in the "Hall of Fame"

Nothing really special, but nice to have.
