No, there isn't. You know that it's trivial for people to change their MAC addresses, correct? Additionally, the instant a packet passes through a later 3 routing device, the Mac address information of the source machine is lost. So even if you did want to do something like this, it would only ever work for clients that are on the same L2 LAN as your ...

With all due respect to my fellow netizens here, I don't think your question was thoroughly read by others who answered. The general assumption is to slam OpenBSD with assumptions that don't pan out in actual use conditions, when really your main piece of information was that PHP was chewing up the CPU the most. There are multiple questions that should have ...

From the OpenBSD 5.3 upgrade guide: pfctl(8) will abort and fail to load the rule set if the 'frags' limit in pf.conf is higher than the kern.maxclusters sysctl This is to guard against allowing a system to run out of mbuf clusters. If it is not set, the new default is 25% of kern.maxclusters. If you increase kern.maxclusters, you will also raise the ...

regarding the type:=program mount/unmount commands, the infodoc for amd on OpenBSD mentions that the first element in the argument is the program to execute, and the second arg is what gets passed in as $0. so iow, if i did mount:="/sbin/mount_nfs -x10 -3 -dt600 -r32768 -w32768 -o rw,tcp.intr host:/path/${key} /local/${key}" i ended up getting: ...

I know three approaches to solve this: Find another IPv6 address of the gateway. It might have multiple assigned to the interface. Which one you use as gateway does not make any difference, as long as neighbor discovery can resolve it to the correct MAC address. Add a static route specifying that the prefix containing that MAC address is directly connected ...

As far as I am aware, OpenBSD does not have good x86 virtualization support because the developers believe it compromises security. You will have better results running it on actual hardware. This is Theo de Raadt's opinion on the subject - x86 virtualization is about basically placing another nearly full kernel, full of new bugs, on top of a nasty ...

This question is three years old but I feel it should be answered: they aren't open in the default installation; at least, not anymore. A port scan on a base installation of OpenBSD 5.5 only shows ssh: Port Scan has started… Port Scanning host: 192.168.1.29 Open TCP Port: 22 ssh Port Scan has completed… Enabling httpd and disabling pf ...
