Welcome to the Secure Computing Networks wiki. Our goal is to produce a resource for Unix, Mac, and Windows System Administrators with information on configuration, trouble-shooting, and utilities for easier use and management of their systems and networks.

I will be attending BSDCan this year! If you'd like to meet up, drop me an email.


The SCN Wiki got started as a personal project of mine, to store all the various configuration and trouble-shooting data I acquire in my job as a FreeBSD Administrator, and as an ad-hoc developer. Over time, I started doing more complete write-ups for things such as OpenVPN and OpenLDAP. Today, I get a modest 4,000 hits per day to these complete articles.

10:40:57 < ecrist> Shit, this is happening.
10:41:19 < ecrist> Phil, from accounting, blurts out "passionate".

10:44:17 < ecrist> Kimberly, the gal that doesn't actually do any work, but idles in the break area all day, states a half-assed, "pushing

10:46:25 < ecrist> She sits back down, she's just interested in the free lunch.
10:46:51 < ecrist> "Let's put it all together folks!  These are some great ideas."
