I work at a large international development charity in London, as International Operations Manager. I manage a team of Regional ICT Service Managers, based in developing world countries, who keep our users happy through fixing problems, setting up great connectivity and generally making sure users can do their day jobs.

I previously worked at the same place as International Network Systems Analyst. I looked after a bunch of ICT systems in offices in the developing world, as well as looking after systems in our HQ. I gained a lot of knowledge in that job, and the techy side competes with the people stuff in the new role, hence I still hang out here a lot.

I'm passionate about the use of ICT in developing countries, both in terms of dealing with the inherent problems for ICT in those places, and using ICT as a tool for development.

comment How to check who blocks ICMP during MTU path negotiation?
In my experience, many ISP have some network equipment which has enough of ICMP blocked to break Path MTU Discovery. I suspect some vendor is shipping equipment with this blocked by default. This results in some ISPs having some routers/switches where PMTUD breaks - dynamic routing makes the problem intermittent. Traceroute and ping used correctly can help you determine where the problem arises.

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt that your aren't trolling. Link to the site by all means, but why not include some context with your answer, like how to use OSSEC for integrity check. That adds value to the link and makes for a good answer.

While this link may answer the question, it is better to include the essential parts of the answer here and provide the link for reference. Link-only answers can become invalid if the linked page changes.

You might go into detail about how you would use OSSEC to do an integrity check.
