    xrdp using sslv2....ugh

    Update... I think I found the actual problem. I'm out of steam for tonight will walk through configuring and generating appropriate certificates. Why I didn't look at the log in the first place is dumb. My bad.. [20230201-20:10:50] [DEBUG] TLSv1.3 enabled [20230201-20:10:50] [DEBUG] TLSv1.2...

    xrdp using sslv2....ugh

    From what I can see it appears initiating a ssh tunnel first is the best route. Turns out the registry changes I made allowing me to connect did not resolve the encryption problem. ssh adds an extra step but seems like the best method to make a secure connection. I will do a bit of playing...

    xrdp using sslv2....ugh

    I was doing a packet capture for another purpose and noticed my rdp session was using sslv2. This was all happening behind a firewall so my moment of terror quickly passed. I poked around with my xrdp configuration and found where I could force TLS. I did that immediately and promptly broke...

    Like a crow chasing shiny objects I updated to ubuntu 22.04. In doing that I went down several rabbit holes. The over aggressive OOM service that was crashing things for me at random. Got that disabled. Then found I could not get jupyter labs to launch. Finally figuring out it was the way...

    Wow, 2 gigabit network card and a switch

    I think your 700Mbs is reasonable throughput with typical network traffic. You could look run wireshark and see if there is something going on. Look for communications error, windowing issues...etc. If your system busy you could be undrunning the buffers on your network card. Not all...

    Text editors that run from the terminal.

    Its fairly common but some appliances running stripped down highly modified flavors of linux sometimes do not. My work history is long and I am a creature of habit. I just go to VI without thinking about it.

    Text editors that run from the terminal.

    I most often use VI because of the environment I worked in did not allow anything but the bare minimum to be installed. It is good to become comfortable with it as it is almost always available. I do like nano. Notepadqq is also good as you can open and manipulate large files without issue.

    Selecting the right router for a cluster?

    You would need to look a backplane specs to determine if it meets your need. I would suspect you could get something like a cisco 3750 on ebay that will work for what you are doing. I'm guessing the systems NIC cards and cpu that you are using will end up being a bigger bottleneck. Without...

    VM NAT Private IP Address

    With the Network and mask listed you would expect to see a class C address space of - Not sure the nature of your NAT configuration but sounds like you have no return path. I say this as you see SYN going out but the rest of the handshake is missing. This tells me that...
