  • openvpn-install

    Project mention: Just here to say Ryujinx LDN3 + CFW Switch LDN_MTM play works fine in Pokemon SV :) | reddit.com/r/SwitchPirates | 2022-11-21

    As the switch can‘t run a vpn, what I think what could work are some things like: - Connect your routers via vpn together, if possible, start the emulator and try to connect from the switch - install a vpn server on the emulator pc or in the network, (openvpn, or wireguard e.g. maybe you got a rasperry pi, you could use some easy installer like https://github.com/angristan/openvpn-install now connect the emulator pc to the vpn server, now we need the switch in the vpn tunnel, this may could be reached either by connecting your router to the tunnel (if you got a good one it could be possible) or what I also could imagine is to go to your PC, you need 2 wifi sticks or 1 stick and 1 ethernet cable and start a hotspot from your windows PC, conmect your switch to this hotspot and then connect your pc to the vpn tunnel. I didnt tested it, but I think this could work… - rent a server (windows or linux) start ryujinx or lanplay and install a vpn server on it, connect to vpn via PC (emulator) and via router (on switch site) and try some steps like above suggested.

  • aptly

    aptly - Debian repository management tool

    Project mention: How can I automate .deb GPG signing procedure? | reddit.com/r/devops | 2022-11-10

    I know that it is not directly what you asked about, but without knowing how the signed debs are being used, I can say that if you were to use aptly to create an apt repo to house your debs to then be installed on whatever machines offline (assuming network connectivity, which may be an incorrect assumption), it requires you to sign a published repo/mirror, and also requires you to install and trust the key on any systems that you then want to use to install package unless you specifically use [trusted=yes] in the apt repo list file.

    I'm using openmediavault 5 with UFW Killswitch configured to only use OpenVPN(Nord vpn). Configured plex, qBittorrent docker containers. Long story short, I got copyright infringement warning. Never had problem with previous ISP. So I investigated how it happened. Found out my DNS was set to ISP DNS in resolv.conf. Not sure how it got defaulted to router DNS. Also found a security issue with using Docker and UFW where docker ignores UFW rules: https://github.com/chaifeng/ufw-docker.
