Messing about with IPTables
Fri, Jul 29th 2016 2:13p   Dave Hay
I'm NOT a firewall or networking expert, so this is very much YMMV.I wanted to see if/how I could use the out-of-the-box IPTables firewall to block most connectivity to a web server ( IBM HTTP Server ) whilst allowing SSH connectivity and, more importantly, allowing incoming requests from Flush the existing rulesiptables -FAdd a rule to allow SSH connectivity only from a specific interface and host - actually the host VMiptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp -s 192.168.153.1 --dport 22 -m state --sta

MQJCA1011 and the story of the missing IBM MQ JMS Provider permissions
Fri, Jul 22nd 2016 10:33a   Dave Hay
We saw this problem earlier this week: -Failed to load the WebSphere MQ native JNI library: 'mqjbnd'. The JVM attempted to load the platform native library 'mqjbnd', which was mapped to the filename: 'libmqjbnd.a'.When attempting to load the library, the JVM reported the error message:'mqjbnd (Not found in java.library.path)'in the context of a failing WebSphere Application Server (WAS) to IBM MQ (MQ) configuration.We found this, whilst trying to debug this: -com.ibm.mq.connector.Detaile

Following on from my earlier posts: -F5 Load Balancing - My first few foraysF5 BIG-IP - More learning, more tinkering, more bloggingI've made yet more headway with this fascinating product.I'd referenced this excellent post: -Deploying F5 BIG-IP Virtual Edition on VMware Fusionwhich, in part, included the necessary F5 commands, using the tmsh utility, to set up a pair of network interfaces, some IP addresses and a default route: -tmsh create net vlan external interfaces add { 1.1 { untagged }
