  1. I had to change the entry in my /etc/nsswitch.conf to include "mdns4_minimal" in the "hosts: " line so it would resolve blahblah.local addresses

    That's what happens when I don't fact-check what I think I know. You're right, I've somehow merged the 10 & 100 spaces into a fictional space that only exists in my head. The $500 fee was also for STATIC ip addresses, not necessarily public, eg https://www.verizonwireless.com/businessportals/support/faqs/DataServices/faq_static_ip.html Sorry for the misinformation. I'll go back to doing server stuff and leave the troubleshooting to the support guys.

    On a 4G connection (or cellular in general) you're often going to be in a private address space. It's usually the 10.100.x.x 'carrier grade nat' reserved space, but varies by carrier. Some carriers will allow you to apply for a public address for your sim card, but there's often a one-time setup fee (last time I ran across it, it was $500 usd setup per account not per sim). If you really need a publically routable IP for your device/servers and can't relocate your services offsite, I'd suggest you spin up a cloud instance on one of the major providers (AWS, DigitalOcean, Azure, etc) and use it as a private VPN endpoint.

    Oh heck no, they don't even tell you that the overseas links are capped. Then again, it's like.. ~$21 USD? and there's a waiting list for available fibre ports in most of the major building estates. There's also dual, quad and a useless 10 Gbps plan available. Why anyone would want 10 individual 1 gb links in a residential location beats me. If I were going to be crazy like that, I'd rather a single 10gbps link that I can plug into an SFP+ port.

    My ISP uses a passive-fibre setup that is oversubscribed, so it's a time-of-day issue. I'm currently seeing 608 down / 724 up. Given what I pay for it, I'm not going to complain. Running iperf3 between two of my internal machines gives me... [ ID] Interval Transfer Bandwidth Retr [ 4] 0.00-10.00 sec 1.09 GBytes 940 Mbits/sec 0 sender [ 4] 0.00-10.00 sec 1.09 GBytes 939 Mbits/sec receiver so it's not a network issue. I can even get up to ~880Mbps using a little Neo2.

    Chwe: same here. FTTH symmetric gigabit, but apparently capped at 20 Mbps for overseas links. Fortunately, that excludes everything in CDN's, so it still feels crazy-fast.
  7. PFsense does, just not the community version. I guess I'll give up and do it the hard way. Armbian + iptables @sfx2000Thanks for the tip.
  8. Thanks, I didn't realize it had finally come available. Looks like it's not an option, as it's for a v7 board w/emmc, and the image isn't available without buying their hardware package. I do wish pfSense had said upfront that it would not be available without the hardware. There's literally no reason for them to have stated that they were working on a port and try to appropriate the espressobin userbase when it would be only sold as yet another proprietary box. I feel a bit shafted when he did say things like:
  9. Assuming he has a publically routable IP address. I've been bitten by ever-increasing amounts of people wondering why dynamic dns doesn't work when they're (unknowingly) behind NAT. @sunarowicz : if you're having connection problems, check the first two octets of your wan connection against the list of reserved private IP spaces.
  10. I think you have two different technologies confused. Pi-Hole works by acting as a DNS server, and simply redirecting any DNS requests for sites on it's blocking lists with blank/null/innocuous content. This can be located anywhere inside your network that is reachable by your other devices, and, as it only handles the DNS requests, does not require a lot of processing or network capacity. I'd recommend a wired device, but yes, a pi zero with an ethernet dongle would handle the traffic for an average home network admirably. Something with built-in ethernet would obviously be better from a reliability standpoint (eg. nanoPi neo, orangePi zero, etc) What I think you're looking for is more than ad-blocking, but an actual stateful firewall with packet inspection. For that you'd need to go with beefier hardware. Personally, I'm still waiting on a pfSense release for the espressobin for that, but what kind of hardware specs you need will depend on your network throughput and traffic.

    Installation of Wireguard

    Sorry, I did it on a Armbian/Ubuntu on Nanopi Neo 2, so your specifics will vary. Hopefully the following will still work: First, you're going to need the kernel headers, so (for my specific version/device): apt install linux-headers-4.14.70-sunxi64 In my case, this brings in headers for *every* arch, and the current wireguard install doesn't like this, so: cd /usr/src/linux-headers-4.14.70-sunxi64/ mkdir unusedArch cd arch sudo mv * ../unusedArch/ cd ../unusedArch/ mv arm64/* ../arch/ add-apt-repository ppa:wireguard/wireguard apt update apt install wireguard wireguard-tools wireguard-dkms Hope it helps.

    Is Mali GPU driver available in Mainline for H3?

    I remember reading the history of the Lima project a while ago, and it basically comes down to that ARM doesn't WANT an open-source implementation of the graphics drivers, as they make a not-insignificant amount of money licensing theirs.

    libre computer same as orange pis?

    If you check the download page under "Libre Computer", you'll see that Armbian has builds for 4 of their current models Le Potato is a supported board Tritium H3 & H5 are suitable for testing Renegade is a "community support" board. The link you provided by default points to the new La Frite board, who just recently finished it's kickstarter and nobody actually has yet. For the most part you'll find the boards are roughly comparable to their Orange Pi and FriendlyArm analogues of the same processor / memory.

    Helios4 Support

    Thanks for catching this so quickly, Igor. I was mid-update when it gave me a 404 on that file.

    error installing multics for pc+

    Looks like you're trying to run an x86 binary on an arm cpu.
