Can you save PDF to flash?  Or is that blocked?

Technically it is here, but i can share a 'folder' to my VM and get around it, if i really needed to. Last time i did that was when i wanted to give my vendor some logs while they were on site, they were too big to email ( several hundred meg ) and they could not get their SFTP running.. And to get an account on ours, is like running for congress with no money.

So i shared it as a folder, not a USB device and poof, copied the stuff over.

 

In the past i have had to use my home machine... but the files were huge and they were here for a change and not in the UK..

Where are the HTTP logs? I should probably review those. :D

You're too nice. 

Just lazy.  I could be a lethal digital vigilante if I wanted to spend the time.  I am satisfied enough by offering my sister to every madarchod who calls to sell me an extended warranty on my car or credit card services.

Let 'em make noise at my door.  They won't get in.  There are only a few SSH accounts and they have good passwords.  It's even more fun to watch the HTTP logs.  They're constantly trying every PHP vulnerability in the book.

I feel like I used to get around Intel's non-split tunnel to allow me to print while I was connected to the corporate VPN to my local printers. 

But... maybe not. Maybe I had to drop VPN in order to do that. 

I mean, technically - if you've got a notebook, and you connect to the VPN over the notebook's ethernet through a DSL connection - but you've got the WiFi hooked up to an internal network... does the VPN shut down the other network? I understand the issue is that you're allowing an outside, insecured network a bridged connection into your internal network through the VPN tunnel if that happens. 

Maybe I just e-mailed documents to myself and printed them that way. It was a long time ago - and I remember that *some* of their VPN policies I couldn't get around, and others I didn't want to try, because they were sound policies.

Correct.  A multihomed host sits on two or more networks.

Our VPN is non-split-tunnel; when you're connected, you can ONLY make connections to the corporate network.  This both sucks and blows if you want to print something and your computer isn't within USB distance of your printer.  I have to print over the Internet back to my home printer, using a port I opened on the firewall to permit print jobs to connect from the address I know the VPN site will go back out on.

Its not VPN in our case that does it, its a GPO setting that even as local admin i cant undo: Our windows load only lets you use one network adapter at a time. 

was sort of a pain when i was moving from home/office once a week. Id switch from wire to WiFi and have to reconfigure my adapters..Later our WiFi at office got good enough i could just use it in both places, but then later after that I had to install a 2nd dedicated WiFi adapter or i was forced to use VPN at work too, as security team at some point decided if you were not logged into one of our boxes ( either windows, or mobile iron ), you only got public WiFi.  So public for my host, and usb WiFi for the windows load.  They used to make exceptions for people like me "just gimme your MAC " but that went away.  i guess it was too much trouble for them to do.  And no mobile-iron for Linux...sooooo

GPO is brutal. It is super complex to understand and set up... but... it certainly addressed concerns about not being able to lock down Win ADs tightly enough - if someone is willing to learn it.

Figuring out how to do brick level backup and restore of Exchange was enough. But of course, they went, "you figured THAT out... and no one else could... why don't you try THIS..." 

No good deed goes unpunished.

Can you save PDF to flash?  Or is that blocked?

Not blocked, but it would certainly be a nuisance. I think most people just print through USB. Or if they have a printer that isn't 25 years old like mine, maybe Bluetooth. I've got a USB-to-parallel adapter, but it only has a three foot cable and the computer is about seven feet away, and I'm too lazy to get an extension.

I only recently ( perhaps 10 years ago ) dropped my parallel port printer laser ( i used a jet direct with it to get it on my network. ). And now, HP does not support the new one and i guess CUPS wont either shortly, so soon i wont be able to print unless i replace it...  grumble..

What kind of printer is it? Something that only has USB? As long as it speaks some version of PCL, CUPS will always be able to support it, probably for far longer than the "official" HP drivers ever will.

But even for my quarter-century-old LaserJet 5, I can still get HP drivers for Windoze 10. And I might just go ahead and do that big expensive PostScript upgrade that was megabucks back in the day but probably $10 on eBay now. :)

Its an HP, 1212 i think ( or similar at least, I'm too lazy to go look on the back )

About 3 months ago when i reloaded my OS when i switched desktop hardware ( stopped using a NUC and went back to my xeon since i wasn't able to mine ether with it anymore. My 2 video cards were too small as the DAG reached above 4gb - arrgh ), it was time to reload cups too. And during that process CUPS people " we are no longer going to be supporting native drivers soon, you must upgrade to a 'air print' printer" or some such nonsense. The way it was worded sounded like they are actually pulling support for loading native driers in a coming soon version and not just no longer to continue to add more. 

I fully support the idea of stopping to add new ones if that is what they want to do, but cutting off what is there and works now, rather dumb.

I'd disregard that unless you're building an operating system of your own.
Every Linux comes with not only CUPS but a very rich set of drivers from several different sources, including some contributed by printer manufacturers.

Except HP :)  They dropped support for OSX on this printer, and stopped updating the Linux driver install er so me moving beyond Debian v9 blew that too.  My first go around was just to install their drivers like i did before. but nope. So i went went 'generic' CUPS and saw that.  But as long as CUPS keeps working i'm ok. just that message i saw lead me to believe i was screwed here in the near future. 

I dont print often, mostly mailing labels and perhaps a sewing template or a recipe, but its nice to be able to do it when i want and not have to buy a new printer when mine works just fine.

 

its all about having to download firmware to the printer every time you print. Stupid design. Stupid idea. Should have been illegal.
