No, the idea is to run fsck on a partition without having to visit the
machine. So far, the consensus is not possible.

3.5 PPTP tunnel to Cisco Pix

With the assistance of some list readers, I've gotten far enough to be 
pretty certain that as of 3.5 and Cisco Pix 6.3 (the latest) it is not 
possible to do a PPTP tunnel using userland ppp if you want to have any 
encryption.  Userland ppp requires chap81, aka mschapv2, if you want to 
do MPPE.  A Cisco Pix supports only PAP, CHAP, and mschapv1, aka 
chap80nt.  These statements in the documentation are confirmed, best as 
I can tell, by my debug logs.

Can anyone confirm or deny?

Thanks.

These also gave me the feeling that HFSC is a sort of CBQ on steroids... 
perhaps best suited to tasks such as VoIP routers or backbone 
aggregators, where each ISP is granted guaranteed bandwidth?

Feedback needed on Apache increase MaxClients & HARD_SERVER_LIMIT on OpenBSD

Hi,

If I may asked your help is confirming, or correcting my finding and changes
that I need to do to my web server kind of quickly, I would very much
appreciate it.

I keep reaching the limits of the server and I need to increase this quickly
until I get more resources on line.

Just a few examples:

[Sun Oct 31 17:14:42 2004] [error] server reached MaxClients setting,
consider raising the MaxClients setting

[Sun Oct 31 17:28:44 2004] [error] server reached MaxClients setting,
consider raising the MaxClients setting

I already change what I could inside the httpd.conf and did all optimization
allow in apache itself under the current limit impose by OpenBSD.

Just for feedback, here are the relevant httpd.conf changes, but just for
informations as that's not where I hit the limit anyway, but it show I did
what I could I think:

======
Relevant lines in httpd.conf
MaxKeepAliveRequests 250
KeepAliveTimeout 5
MinSpareServers 25
MaxSpareServers 50

Re: More on SATA cards

Yes they do!

Dell delivered my new 400SC server with a Promise S150 TX2  (PDC20371).. This 
server was delivered to me three weeks ago. And it wont work on OpenBSD 3.6 
due to lack of PDC20371 support ....... So Dell do deliver Promise!

What was the controller Dell used before for CERC-SATA ?

DSL Internet

I would like to connect to the Internet with my OpenBSD system. However when I connect my Ethernet card to my
DSL Modem, the modem doesn't recognize my Ethernet card. It indicates it is not plugged in.

What do I have to do to properly configure my Ethernet card to work with my modem, and what steps would I have to
take to access the internet?
