So relsqui and I were yammering about her wireless woes. Then she said:
"I know what you do to fix it (and therefore, I know what to do), but I don't know what any of it does."
A short discussion of IP, ICMP, and routing later, she disappears into the bathroom, comes back, and says "Let me type some stuff. Don't look."
She produced this...
First thing's first, we have aliases in DNS for our servers in the house. Thus you can go to deepthought by sshing to d.
Secondly, the manila envelope is a packet. (It should really be compressed and encrypted, but oh well)
Thirdly, the name of my system and the name of her system are relevant.
That should be enough.
