In 2002, a node was installed, sucessfully unwiring the entire square. Originally, the node was sponsored by Web Criteria, then in 2003 the Portland Business Alliance took up the torch. In 2005, the Business Alliance moved and SRG Partnership, Inc. is now hosting the node.

Maintenance and System Log

  • 2006-02-02: Responded to problems. Found the DSL modem borked (an Actiontec). The modem will need to be replaced by Qwest (presumably). In the interim, I've setup a similar modem. Becuase I was short on time and couldn't figure out how to make the Actiontec to bridging, I've set it up as a router. This required changes to the configuration of the NuCab's external interface. When we get the replacement modem -- this might be a good time to get bridging working. For now, everything works fine again. I've forwarded ports 22,80,5280,161,162 TCP and 161,162 UDP to the NuCab. I also updated the onsite documentation. Finally, I added an account for myself to the NuCab with my PTP SSH key, but didn't give myself sudoer access. - CalebPhillips

  • 2005-10-03: Security updates installed. (- KeeganQuinn)

  • 2003-05-23: Upgraded hostap driver to 0.0.3. - BrianBeattie

  • 2003-05-06: Hmmm looks like somebody forgot to update this page when they upgraded the node. Removed /sbin/poweroff, not needed and will cause the system to be unavailable requireing a power cycle. - BrianBeattie

  • 2003-04-02: Checked system /var was at ~ 80%. Ran run-parts --verbose /etc/cron.daily, logrotate and symbol update failed no disk space. Cleaned out ntpstats /var/log down to 80%. Cleaned out old NoCatAuth logs down to 64%. Cleaned out current NoCatAuth logs down to 12%. Changed /etc/cron.daily/ntp-simple to remove stats older than 2 days. - BrianBeattie

  • 2002-06-03: Updated NoCatAuth to 0.80.20020603 in /usr/local/nocat-6-3-nightly --MichaelCodanti

  • 2002-04-12: Updated NoCatAuth to nightly from 4-12-2002 with patches. (Now has a status page at: http://node113.personaltelco.net:5280/status) --MichaelCodanti
