So Marcus Hutchins, of fame and who had been arrested in the US has pleaded guilty to writing banking software. Over on the birdsite there's lots of strong opinions. I blogged my opinion that it's a big world out there and trying to dismiss him as a criminal or pardon him because he's a hero are fundamentally misguided. blog.paco.to/2019/marcus-hutch

*BOOSTS NEEDED*

A friend of mine was recently involved in a motorcycle accident. Bike totaled, wrist broken, surgery for torn ligaments needed. He has no health insurance. Anything you can give would help gofundme.com/shaun039s-ouchie-

Well that was easy.

Ubiquiti EdgeRouter X SFP can mirror ports: Go to Config Tree->Interfaces->Ethernet->eth0 and put the destination port into the 'mirror field'.

Plug in a laptop, disable dhcp on the nic, and run: `sudo tcpdump -i ethf00 -n -X` and presto, packets!

Reportedly this is a software copy so router CPU usage will increase, but I don't see it going over 30% right now.

Solved it. 50' of CAT5e is easier to setup and way more reliable.

I never learn. Yet again I have wasted HOURS trying to get DDWRT's client bridge mode working. It doesn't. I guess I should just buy another NanoStation.
