comment Tool to automate basic connectivity testing
Strictly speaking, nmap is the best fit for my use case, with one major problem: it's completely banned. I just spent the past couple of weeks trying to get an exception to the rule but failed. My client's IT security team is adamant that anybody using nmap is a threat to the network and refuses to compromise on this.

I'm more looking for a basic shakedown tool that will be removed as soon as the work is done. Nagios is more of a long term solution which doesn't fit this scenario as well.

comment Mounting a mainframe file system on Unix (or vice versa)
Thanks. This seems workable. At least we can parallelize the extraction and transfer process this way. But will there be any difference writing to a file on NFS and... well, I don't know what file system is used on mainframe, actually. Mainframe terminology is so different from open systems, sigh. For Unix systems, the file system is pretty much transparent to applications, is it the same for mainframe?

comment Troubleshooting slow WiFi
Thus far, I'm satisfied that I've avoided most of the other channels. Have already run Wifi Analyzer previously to check this. When you refer to port mirroring, do you mean something like tamos.com/docs/monitoring.pdf ?

comment Troubleshooting slow WiFi
Yes, I've already checked the channels and I've selected the one with least interference so far. The good thing about this is that we're in our customer's location and the customer uses channel 1. We just take care to stay out of that channel.

I'm pretty sure the security guy is confused, but since he's the IT Security guy from my client's company and not my colleague, I need to be a bit more tact and push constructively w/o just laughing at him and saying he's got things mixed up. Yes, it's definitely SSH and not PGP.
