My Home Network

I spend too much time on my home network infrastructure, but it is too much fun…  Components to brag about include:

  • Embedded linux on a wireless access point
  • Vpn concentrator and clients using certificate authentication to route between family member networks
  • Virtual server and multiple virtual guest machines
  • Fully automated backup process for all data
  • Fileserver for nfs and samba filesharing
  • Web servers which run wordpress, mediawiki
  • Reverse proxies

Home Network Diagram

I used the Dia utility to draw a great-looking diagram of my home network. Dia seems to be a great Visio replacement, and it certainly is better than the old Xfig program I used to use years ago.
