comment How do I set up an IPv6 DMZ with iptables without a static allocation?
That's interesting; I do have a dhcp6 client running, which I wasn't aware of. I don't see any log messages pertaining to getting a prefix though… so it sounds like the best option would be to add the DHCP client configuration. Could you expand your answer to include some specifics on that? (Particularly I find writing rules to fit in with OpenWRT's somewhat complex existing firewall tricky.)

Why should I be using DHCPv6? Why Barrier Breaker (by which I assume you mean the OpenWRT version)?

comment How do I set up an IPv6 DMZ with iptables without a static allocation?
First and foremost - the whole point here is that the prefix is not, or rather may not be, static. And I definitely don't want SSH accessible on all hosts :-). Also, the router is getting its prefix via router advertisements, not DHCP, so that wouldn't help. I can't find a radvd hook for "prefix changed". Can ebtables inspect IP-level packet information? My impression was that it was all about ethernet-layer stuff. Finally: what's a "u32 match"?

comment What are useful Command-line Commands on Mac OS X?
I believe you should usually use xdg-open rather than gnome-open because it's portable to other desktop environments (XFCE, KDE, etc).

comment Upgrade an Ubuntu 8.04 installation with VMware Server 1.0.8 and lots of guest OSes to Something Else
Thanks. I was kinda leaning towards something KVM-based, but it's nice to hear someone else confirm my suspicions about the migration process :).

comment Upgrade an Ubuntu 8.04 installation with VMware Server 1.0.8 and lots of guest OSes to Something Else
I don't know if my hardware supports ESXi; I suspect not. However, my understanding is that ESXi is just a hypervisor, and the host machine here has several responsibilities beyond just running the VMs, so I'd like to just dump VMWare entirely for this host.

The question about risk is a valid one, so here's why I'd like to upgrade: Every time I install security updates right now, it breaks the VMWare installation and I need to reconfigure it and re-apply a couple of hand tweaks to work around bugs in this version of VMWare Server. Upgrading to 2.0 on this particular version of ubuntu is supposedly unpleasant. I also want to make use of new filesystems and new management tools in Lucid. This is a server that gets put to a lot of different uses, and there are just newer versions of software packaged in Lucid that I'd rather be using.

Could you add a link to the official documentation for this?
