Can I get by a show of hands (or like or replies) how many people here are still interested in tinkering around with networks and building out a network like CTWUG or continuing it to some degree with more people (I know I know a few on my network). I feel like there is a lack of love to this project (well by the majority) I assume the minority loves it.
So I was wondering, discussions about expanding our networks? As mentioned in: When will training start
It’s a pretty sad state of affiars also reading the statistics of OSPF routers decreasing in: When will training start I really never knew it was THIS bad to be honest.
CTWUG is like a shining pearl in a swamp or well not really much interesting network stuff going on in South Africa and WC except in academia.
So with that said, anyone up for some networking shananigans! As for me I have been building a network out with some friends http://deavmi.assigned.network:4444.
What CRXN actually is?
Here, spoilers, an IP inter-network: http://deavmi.assigned.network/blog/CRXN.html
Tutorial on getting connected: http://deavmi.assigned.network/docs/crxn/site/peering/
Current network topology (excludes static routes for some things, except would be visible in green table): http://deavmi.assigned.network:4444
Have people connected over tunnels in Cape Town, Russia, Germany and India Obviously Cape Town has the potential for physical links which would be amazing. The image above only shows the extent of the network somewhat, we have more than one hop routes (the map cannot show the full network topology).
Getting in contact
We have an IRC network available on CRXN (and the normal Internet as well), channel
#crxn is where we meet and discuss (discussion is anytime): http://deavmi.assigned.network/docs/bnet/site/ (A list of IRC servers all interconnected, take a few incase one goes down because I don’t know, KGB spies or Hellkom)
