Citylink's official Debian mirror (ftp.nz.debian.org) is apparently
again broken (not even listening on port 80 from where I'm sitting).
Would anyone be seriously interested in donating rack space, national
transit, or hardware to the cause of another official Debian mirror for
Having reliable and cheap access to free software projects like Debian
is critically important, and having a second official mirror seems like
a no-brainer to me.
I am very happy to donate my time to admin and monitor any equipment
provided for this, and to liase with the Debian project as required.
Perhaps Citylink could give us some insight in to the traffic levels
their existing mirrors see?
So, probably a bit a touchy subject this one but here goes..
If you are a network operator and you have more than 4000 customers in my
understanding you need to have full interceptions capabilities. (I'm not a
lawyer, etc, etc) This is more than just being 'interception ready'.
This will mean having a mediation system and being able to produce
intercept data in the ETSI standard - again, as far as I know.
What are companies/organisations out there doing about this?
Is there a nice open source solution out there for this? (I haven't found
one yet) Are people putting their heads in the sand and praying they never
get served a warrant? Is everyone just shelling out hundreds of thousands
of dollars on a vendor LI solutions?
What network kit are people integrating with LI in NZ?
And note, the last paragraph on the URL I linked above reads:
"Can I share interception capability resources?
Network operators may co-ordinate, share or contract for services
(equipment or staff) in order to meet the interception capability
requirements in the Act. However, it remains the responsibility of the
network operator to ensure that any such arrangement does not affect any
obligations that apply under the Act. Before entering into any such
arrangement a network operator must notify the Director of the GCSB."
Replies on or off list welcomed.
Just spoke with Vodafone NOC - there was is planned upgrade work going on
Karori prod node. Whatever it is seems to have taken out Highbury CMNT
The Public facing Network status meter however shows all good - when there
has been an ongoing outage since around 0100. Change window is meant to
close at 0300 so hopefully it resumes before then.
I am a little annoyed when there is planned work but the Public reporting
tool isn't updated or fed by these things.

Hi guys. A shared server room has an active UFB service for another
business on the floor. We want UFB service to our office too.
Is an additional ONT install needed (as I'm being told by <ISP>)? Or, can
Chorus just enable another port on the existing ONT and have and then run a
network cable out to both routers from one ONT? Is the ONT capable of
multiple PPPOE sessions to the offsite hardware?
Or is this just creating a problem that doesn't need to exist (- ie say yes
to the second ONT install)?
Does anyone here look after, or know who looks after, the 026 400 1283
modem interface to spark paging ?
It's currently answering calls, but not giving a modem handshake.
(Please don't respond with messages about paging being end-of-life'd,
the fire service is paying for it to kept alive on life-support.)
