Scanner back online

I’d only blogged about it previously. Due to numerous and repeated upgrades and distro switches, one of the peripherals that I’d left offline was my $.67 scanner. Needing it this evening showed just how long it’s been offline: I last took notes about installation back when I was using devfs (vice udev). The installation is now much, much easier. My new installation notes will be wiki’d here eventually. (For now, they’re a mess.)

Snort + OpenWRT

Here’s a paper on building intrusion detection into OpenWRT. The paper describes the need to limit the signature set due to memory limitations.

This might be worth trying again. Maybe you could get better mileage with something like a WRTSL54GS which has more memory? There’s also a lot more features/software around to hook together. Any takers?
