I posted about an AWS VPN redundant gateway setup to a Cisco ASA a few months back. I worked through the problems and finally had time to document it on my blog, in a fun way. May prove an interesting read to someone.

My thoughts and help guide on configuring "Cisco ASA to Redundant Amazon Virtual Gateways" #AWS #VPN

As part of my day to day duties as a “Systems Administrator”, I configure site-to-site VPN tunnels from my company’s hosted devices, to remote endpoints of all types. The most common scenario being IPSec VPN tunnels, with the endpoints on my side being a…

To all the Fortinet haters from yesterday, we're also deploying 5600s and a 2960 still a WIP. Is that cool? 😎

Bad checksum error, Windows 2000 BSOD restaurant in Concord, NC. Their smoked sirloin is simply incredible though, despite their POS system using Win2k :)

A lot of POS systems run Windows XP Embedded which is still supported  until 2016.

Any other Mac client users having this problem since TU? I can only play with my laptop and no devices connected. Very frustrating. Support was nice but unable to help.

Dealt with a VPN tunnel establishment between an ASA 5500 series and AWS this week. I was on the ASA side. We were getting crypto map errors relating to quad 0's in the live logging but we'd specified local and remote networks proper on both ends. Google turned up lots of people with the same issue.

Turns out Amazon with their dual HA VPN tunnel config uses IPSec ESP-AES-128 while we had been expecting 256 in our deployment. Having not dealt with AWS and it not being on our end, I was unaware.


TLDR - if you deal with AWS VPN tunnels to ASA by chance, remember P2 AES is 128. It will save you a bit of trouble. Also only use a single entry in the extended permits as Amazon has hard limits.

Racked these 500D's, along with some Cisco port extenders, several Dell r630's, and more to come during a new private cloud build out. I work from home and it's fun to get to work with new hardware in the datacenter every once in a while.

+Mike Rigsby we buy Cisco gear through curvature because of just that. A lot of times is drastically over priced. The one thing I have to say I do like about the fortinet is just today the firewall had a bad config pushed to it (thank you coworker) where the subnet mask was wrong and we lost access.

I got the on site contact to fix with his iPhone and the FortiExplorer app. Had him plug in with his charger cable and guided him through it.

An excellent read on the KDE desktop as it transitions to a more modular approach. If you've any interest in Linux desktop, it's worth checking out.

Kubuntu 15.04 Alpha 2 Is the Most Exciting Release in a Long Time. The first thing people will likely notice is the new look of the distribution and they won't be disappointed. An even more impressive review, this time of Plasma 5 on Utopic, is from Ken Vermette.

I wish there was a way to block/hide/mute conversations all over Google Plus that were trolling windows problem threads with responses like, "install Linux" and Linux threads saying, "install a real OS, windows".

I enjoy lots of things about Google Plus, and use it overwhelmingly for tech-based social networking, but these types of threads with the trolling and bashing OS's just makes me want to do evil things.
