Welcome to vanwesten.it!

Site setup

This site is running on a Debian GNU/Linux apache webserver.

This site is IPv6 enabled.

The (full gigabit) home network runs behind an OpenBSD firewall, connected to the Internet over a 100 Mbit/s FttH link, with linux and OpenBSD clients, mainly because the owner likes to experiment with linux and OpenBSD. There are several legs on the firewall, each leg cannot contact the other except when explicitly allowed. The network is run using vlans. Also a wireless segment is running, although only authorized users can connect. There is WPA2(aes) encrytion on the wireless network.

There are several DMZ's for different purposes: webserver, SIP server, mail server etc. Virualization(VirtualBox, kvm, xen) is being used to consolidate different servers on 1 piece of hardware.

Currently 7 vlans are being used to isolate traffic from the lan to the other parts of the network.

We like OpenBSD for firewalls/security/vpn gateways/internet servers, Debian GNU/linux for internet servers, any linux distribution for workstation and zenoss for setting up networkmonitoring.
