Maintenance and System Log
2007-05-14: Got a panicky call from Bryant regarding communication he recvd from his ISP (Integra) that HBO's content goons had written a letter that someone was using his IP address to torrent "Entourage". I explained to Integra via email that this is a coffeeshop WiFi network not a home connection, and that all we could do is block the port. They replied and said they would consider the matter closed if the bittorrent client port was blocked. Now I think to ask: Can we do that? --GeneMerrill
02/06/2007: Responded to an email about outage. /var was full again, mostly due to a 400+ meg nocat.log. I cranked down the verbosity from 10 to 1. Could probably go to zero, as I believe we have elsewhere, but I haven't done that yet. Also, the staff seem to like to start unplugging things when something goes wrong. Furthermore, the cat5 tips are in ragged shape and could use new crimps (I didn't bring tools with me). We should probably go recrimp and label where various wires go ("AP goes here" and "DSL goes here" or somesuch) --RussellSenior
- 04/21/2006: Noticed frick was unreachable and stopped by to check on the wiring. They had reversed the cat5 going into the nucab. Fixed, moving AP back upstairs after diagnosis phase.
04/21/2006: Got word via AaronBaer on the ops list that it was out again. Aaron graciously sync'd up keys on the box and I discovered that /var was full. I deleted /var/log/nocat.log and restarted NoCatAuth. There had been 15359 successful auths since November 7, 2004, an average of about 30 auths per day since then. --RussellSenior
04/17/2006: Responded to a downage report. Netgear AP was downstairs plugged directly into the DSL modem. I reconnected through the nucab and it all worked again. We moved the Netgear AP back upstairs over the coffee bar and it was working when I left. No sign of any other wireless gear on the premises. The AP was oversized compared to current devices, so it's probably the 11b. --RussellSenior
10/13/2004: Some reports of customer laptops picking up on neighbor's WiFi signals instead of the ptp signal. This is happening a few times per week, not a huge problem. Maybe an adjustment to the channels? They have two antennas, one for downstairs one for upstairs if I remember right. Or maybe we just need a brochure explaining to neophytes how to adjust their settings? --GeneMerrill
10/15/2004: Added a complete hardware list of what I installed initially. I'll look at the 802.11b. It may be time for Bryant to fork out for a descent AP + Antenna upstairs.
