Recently I began experimenting with KVM virtualisation in the Linux Kernel. Its a great technology that if your CPU supports VT-x / AMDV offers almost (really, almost) bare metal level performance inside Virtual Machines. It works on most Linux flavours and has a couple of handy management tools such as virsh and virt-manager. However, one thing I thought was always lacking and annoying me was of course, the ability to manage my Hypervisor from my iPhone / iPad when on the move! Time for an experiment I thought; then out came “KVM Remote”
KVM Remote on the iPad and 3 Different Remote Hypervisors
Its universal so works on both the iPhone and iPad and is extremely bleeding edge right now, but works! and is incidentally the first App i’ve made that doesn’t have selfish fiscal intentions, so theres another great reason to download it from the AppStore now!
P.S. i’ll be updating it regularly adding more features as requests come in.
Hi everyone! I keep getting lots of emails from people asking where they can buy xyz to complete the tutorials and try out some of the things listed on CaptainGeek, well after I kept emailing people the same links i had a thought, why not setup an amazon affiliate store. Basically, i’ve setup a small amazon site with a small selection of products (only those used for the tutorials on this site + related ones), purchases and payments are handled by amazon, however a small percentage of the sale goes to helping fund the server this website is hosted on AT NO EXTRA COST TO YOU so its a win win situation, please use the links whenever you can.
I’ve been very busy lately, here is one of my latest incarnations, a Virtualisation Linux Distribution, which you can use as a live-cd or a bare-metal installer, it is debian based with virtualbox. Everything configured out of the box. You can run Linux/BSD/Solaris/Windows/Other virtual machines on this distribution, even if your system does not support virtualisation natively! =) Please note, this release is super early, it works, but very bare. In the coming weeks i’ll make it a pretty fully functional system. Continue reading →
So you’ve probably wondered why i went from posting 3 times a day to not posting at all. I’ve been pretty busy recently with exams, jobs, personal-issues and so on. Few bits of news regarding the project. I’ve moved house, therefor am going to migrate everything thats using UKERNA over to HE.NET purely as they seem to be much more stable, and I can use 6over4 Also i am working on something you are all gonna like, just gimme time and i’ll have it sorted need to buy a more powerful server first heh
For now peace! and stay tuned for whats coming next
Hey everyone, i moved everything from where it was about 5 miles down the road, slight change in ipv4 addressing, (1 digit) but ipv6 addressing stays the same, let me know if any services are not working correctly peace x
Hey guys, another update tonight! Thanks to a LOT of help from rewt in #ipv6 on efnet, i’ve managed to eleminate most bugs from the zone builder, if you had problems before, try it again and it should be fine. Im also thinking about creating a hosted dns solution, leave your thoughts in the comments until then, check out the new and improved IPV6 Reverse Zone Builder
Two services launched in 1 Day! Here I bring you something I did on impulse after many people seem to be struggling to setup IPV6 reverse zones, i’ve put together a simple zone building script which will generate all the information you need for BIND automatically! At the moment it only supports /64′s and is a bit error prone, but i think it will suffice. Soon I will perfect it and offer zone hosting services here for people. Until then you can check it out here and setup your reverse zone!
As part of the services i’m trying to offer the IPV6 community, i’ve launched a Looking Glass in the BETA stage, this allows users to check their ipv6 connectivity using ping6 traceroute and check their reverse DNS records using the PTR function. I hope it’s useful to you all, please be patient with some of the functions such as traceroute as they can be slow, i’ll move it all over to an AJAX based model soon, but for now enjoy testing your connectivity! You can view the live working version here
As part of the new redevelopments I am very keen on getting some cool new services on offer for anyone, those wishing to experiment with their ipv6 implementations, those wanting to see whats going on here, or those actually wanting to use the services for what they were designed for!
I’ve just launched irc.michaelarmstrong.eu its running on Unreal3.2 + patches and support IPV6 + SSL (note this is an ipv6 only server).
You can access it using ports: 6667 or 6697 (ssl) and from any popular IPV6 enabled IRC client such as XChat or mIRCv6
Come say hello to me (tekk) in #chat see you there!
