I don't know what you've done, but you managed to bone something up reaaaaally good. I think you're on your own.

comment Puppet 0.25.0: Problems with access control, how can I fix them?
The built-in facts like fqdn and operatingsystem don't get copied across by factsync, they're put in place by facter. It sounds like your facter install is boned in such a way that it's not finding it's facts, or else Puppet isn't finding facter. Good luck with that one.

re: certname, you're right, I misremembered and didn't check the docs like I should have. Regarding the lack of fixination, you need to regenerate the client cert; I've updated my answer to cover that.

comment Issue with SSH Aliases and Tunneling
Why are you even worrying about this? In the great grand scheme of things, having nc get a HUP barely even rates a mention in the badness stakes.

comment What ports are least likely to be probed on the internet?
@Brian: Less services live up there, so the ranges are less likely to get scanned. Not much less likely, though.
