WTF is wrong with DigiNotar?

Y'know, I don't know why all CA's aren't required to simply use sneakernet to access their private key every time they want to sign a cert. It would avoid all sorts of problems.

The big ones do exactly that. If the private key is online somewhere then you're probably dealing with a place like "Bob's Fish Tacos And Certificate Authority" who issues domain-validated certificates that are issued by a computer.
That's why they're so cheap.

Does anyone have any experience setting up a long range ewireless ethernet bridge? I'm looking at using Motorola Canopy equipment to span around 4.1 miles.

Give me a day or two, I believe my ex-boss set up something.  I will see what he says.

Maybe it would be better to ask what are your questions specifically?

I saw a page with them creating parabolic mirrors with spanning meshes over wooden base construction

generaly spoken...

gives you other approaches too.

Neat stuff, but it sounds like the8088er is dealing with at least some amount of budget to purchase "real" long haul wifi equipment.

I've done some of that, but the distance was only a quarter mile or so. Line of sight is key.

I setup one in downtown Minneapolis. It was 30 something Ghz I think and required a telescope to align. It cost $50K for both ends in 1998 and carried a single T1 and one 100MB/sec ethernet link.
It also sucked whenever we had ice storms.

the problem is, that if, they want to sell you some uber-special equipment, which equals weight in gold, and isn't as fast either.

so... a little antenna workshop, and a visit at radio shack (do they still do electronic parts?) would be the best thing to do.

maybe ax25 is the right guy (or knows some of them ;-) to get it set up and running properly.

You can still get some electronic parts at Radio Shack. But they aren't what they used to be.

Saltine, it wouldn't have happened to be at Little Earth, would it? It sounds awfully familiar.

nope; We used to to go to a federal bldg downtown. Used an outfit called microwave bypass. We needed it because quest at the time was in complete disarray and couldnt deliver our lines in time for a new office. I think I called Microwave bypass, and they came out the same week and installed it; took care of all the FCC licenses, etc. It was rock solid except for 2 ice storms; you had to chip off the ice on the can. The ends of the can were about the size of large dinner plates.

Yeah, the huge section of components we remember from the Radio Shack of the 1970's has been replaced by a single cabinet with a bunch of tiny drawers in it, in which you might find a few fuses and connectors and things. RadioShack (note the innovative switch from two words to a single CamelCase word) now needs the floor space for crappy consumer electronics and overpriced HDMI cables.

VerFry's has a good selection of component parts if there's one near you.


We may do a little proof of concept hackup to see if we can get it to work for just a while. We won't be able to do a permanant install until "Point A" moves to a new building downtown which could be a month or two, but we can't do without Internet at "Point B" until then. I astill need to find some topographic maps to see just what we're up against. I won't be able to do line-of-sight I don't think. I'll have to do nLOS aiming high to get over some obstacles just odown the road from Point A, where we can't really put a mast. Point B shouldn't be very limited regarding what can we put up.

Wonder how much it costs to colo something on a cell twower as there's one literally right across the property line from us.

Depends on location, population, and who owns the tower, but $1,500 per month is usually a good starting point. Considering that you're probably trying to do this to keep costs down it would seem that you could probably get a leased line for cheaper than that.

Yeah. That's prohibitive. Who provides leased lines? We aren't trying to
do it for cost savings as much as because the only internet we can get
is 1.5 MBPS for $129 a month after $200 setup and $395 equipment costs
(WISP).

Do you just call AT&T and say you want a T1 or something? I imagine
that's probably around $1000+ a month plus installation anyway, and for
1.544 MBPS at that.

If both ends of the line are local, you get a T1 from your local exchange carrier (at&t, Verizon, Qwest, etc). That is assuming that neither end is a "lit building" which, based on your sparse Internet options, I am assuming is not the case.

Question for the phone geeks.

Coworker got a strange call from a number in oklahoma. Call went
unanswered, but a voicemail was left. Coworker dialed into his VM box,
message was silence.

Then his phone started dialing an 866 number. He hung up.
Dialed back into voicemail, play the message, same thing happens.

Googling the 866 number returns hits that it's a credit card scam.

How the hell can a voicemail prompt a phone to dial out like that?
We have an Avaya IP Office phone system here.

Was it dialing or was the voicemail just the tones of the keys being pressed?
