While i do somewhat trust my ISP, I certainly do not trust my government. There is some traffic going in and out of my network that i’d rather not have tied back to me (Im not talking highly illegal stuff, where anyone or anything gets hurt, think more “downloading linux iso’s”. So, i created a new VLAN for these devices and went about working on routing that traffic over my PIA VPN. Heres how.
I have been fiddling with multiple different authentication methods to centralise the authentication across all my devices and services. Im trying to push myself to use FreeIPA more as it seems to be becoming more widley used where using Active Directory isnt suitable.
It is also really easy to enable 2FA per user which i find to be a big bonus.
If you havnt already setup FreeIPA, check out my guide on going through the installation process HERE.
Setting up a VPC with a VPN and routes propagated over BGP was something i had recently tasked myself in work. These is how i made it work.
I recently bought a new firewall appliance from AliExpress, i figured id write a short review of the unit as a few people on reddit have asked how it is.
