    Celox Networks: Carrier-scale solutions
    Celox is architected for wide ranging, high-speed interfaces and deep IP functionality for very large numbers of users.
    The construction of new fiber backbones coupled with the application of DVDM has created unprecedented bandwidth and commodity pricing pressures.
    With the growth of the Internet and its underlying technologies, it is clear that NSPs must add value for IP-based services if they are to gain new service revenues. Existing solutions lack the scalability and depth of features to drive incremental service revenue.
    By implementing new technologies, NSPs can gain value from:
    1. aggregation of broadband services and wholesale of services
    2. network-based IP Virtual Private Networks (VPNs)
    3. Partnering with Application Service Providers (ASPs) to provide value added transport services.

    That's all folks. A big thank you to all who submitted topics, and a bigger thank you to the presenters. It will be a fun and interesting meeting, and I look forward to seeing each and every one of you there.

    Note that every speaker may not be a SLUUG member, just that their topic would be of interest to us. So tell your fellow cow-orkers and spread the word. We are not particularly against commercial presentations - remember it's only five minutes if it's a stinker.

    Next STL Linux User Group Meeting Is 18 January

    FreeS/WAN and IPSec - by Matt Schillinger

    FreeS/WAN is an implementation of IPsec for Linux. IPsec also known as Secure IP. It provides authentication and encryption using strong cryptography. This ensures that only authorized users can connect, and that others cannot intercept your information as it travels across the Internet to its destination.

    FreeS/WAN allows you to set up a Virtual Private Network (VPN) using the "Internet cloud" to transport packets. The VPN can be seen as a pipe within the cloud, where anyone can see stuff in the cloud, but nothing within the pipe. Only the sites at the end of the pipe will be able to access that network traffic.

    Matt will discuss his experience setting up FreeS/WAN in a distributed corporate environment. He will talk about compiling a custom kernel with FreeS/WAN and the configuration involved to set up a VPN. He will offer some advice and tips for implementing your own VPN using FreeS/WAN.

    And if you want to know, more about FreeS/WAN and IPsec?

      IPSEC is Internet Protocol SECurity. It uses strong cryptography to provide both authentication and encryption services. Authentication ensures that packets are from the right sender and have not been altered in transit. Encryption prevents unauthorised reading of packet contents.

      These services allow you to build secure tunnels through untrusted networks. Everything passing through the untrusted net is encrypted by the IPSEC gateway machine and decrypted by the gateway at the other end. The result is Virtual Private Network or VPN. This is a network which is effectively private even though it includes machines at several different sites connected by the insecure Internet.

    Matt Schillinger is the system administrator for the Linuxgruven home office in St. Louis. He has also worked for several ISPs in the St. Louis area. Matt has set up FreeS/WAN in order to create a Virtual Private Network to satellite offices.

    Next Linux Installfest

    by Bill T. Kat

    The first St. Louis Linux InstallFest was rather unstructured. We had no idea that it would be so successful. Ever since we have been looking forward to holding another one.

    The November Hazelwood LUG meeting for beginners (newbies) was interesting because of two unusual facts.

  • Only three attendees did not have a Linux box running.
  • Even among those with Linux running there was considerable interest in knowing "When will we have the next Linux InstallFest?".

    Our next Linux Installfest will be on 10 February and will be hosted at Wave Technologies Intl., 10845 Olive Boulevard, St. Louis, MO. See site for who they are.

    Comments, questions and ideas about this next Installfest are welcome; please contact Matthew Porter by phone at 314-353-7988 or send

    Current information will be posted at Planning and general discussion will begin shortly on our DISCUSS mailing list.

    Missouri No Call List

    by Mike Knight

    Hurry and sign up for the new Missouri No Call list. Time will tell how effective it is, but you aren't giving away any more information than they already have: name, address, and phone number. Like the Federal law there are exceptions (established relationship, non-profit, etc.), but it should help. With the Missouri law you state your intention once, not with each company.

    Ok, you have until May 1, 2001, but do it now and spread the word. For more information, visit and free up those phone lines for their intended purpose - Web surfing.

    I later got a polite message telling me that library partons were limited to ordering only five titles at a time. However, since they had never posted that limit they would go ahead and process my requests.

    Multiple requests for the same title indicate intrest to the library staff and will make it's purchase more likely. Therefore I encourage others to request some of these same titles. Books can be requested on line at

    I also always try to include in the request form remarks section the ISBN, the list price, and the discount price.

    Urgent Need for Analog Dial-in Equipment! by Kevin D. Holmes

    Does anyone have any kind of old/excess dial-in equipment our school district can borrow/rent/buy??

    Our project, which is an important issue to our little community here in Ste. Genevieve, is to provide Internet access from home for the Students, Staff, and Faculty in our School District.

    Ste. Genevieve is a small community about an hour south of St. Louis, and is the oldest city in Missouri.

    We have already purchased and installed all of the equipment to support four T-1 lines, which as you can imagine is a stretch for a small school district. Originally, we were planning to be up and running by Jan. 1st, but the phone company (after many delays) determined that they would not be able to bring in our T-1 lines for another 6 months. The only thing we can get will be 8-12 analog lines, which would be enough to keep us going until summer.

    However, all of our new equipment that we have installed and waiting will not support the old analog stuff, so we need to find a temporary solution as fast as we can. Anything from old (but working) digi-boards and external modems to whatever you might have laying around might be just what we need!

    As soon as I received the bad news, I put out a call to both the Unix community and to other school districts across the state for any old ANALOG equipment we could borrow/rent/lease/buy.

    We ordered 12 analog lines to try to cover limited service until then, and those were supposed to be installed last Friday (December 29th). Since I had not received any responses by Thursday morning, I was in the middle of ordering two 6-port modem cards and trying to get them shipped overnight. Then I got more bad news: SouthWestern Bell called to tell us that they can't put the analog lines in for about 6 weeks! That does give us a little more time to try to find some replacement equipment, and if any of your readers might have some equipment that would help us out, we would be greatly appreciative.

    We have a new server running Linux that is supposed to be the RADIUS authentication server, and I can use that to put mulit-port modem cards in. If someone would be able to donate/loan/rent/sell us either mutli-port modem cards, or an analog dial-in RAS device, that would help us get up and running until our T-1 lines come in.

    Also, I could use some guidance from someone with skill in setting up a Linux server to support dial-in (PPP) users.
