It's An Ubuntu Server!: What's Goin' On With It?


What's going on is that now we're downloading another program called Cockpit to monitor Saturnine-U.


Considering our server doesn't have a GUI, this will be interesting.




PPA - Personal Package Archive, when you can’t use the standard repository archives.

We have to add it to our repository,  It’s not in the standard ones - and all this;



Tells us about keys.

With sudo apt update, the Cockpit repository information is added to our list.

And with the install command, Cockpit is now installing onto our machine.



It took a bit of a long jaunt.

It works via tcp port 9090, so let’s put in sudo ufw allow 9090/tcp

Again, still haven’t puzzled out that “Hey, this Macbook and this Windows 10 machine are your family too,” kind of deal with this server, so let’s pretend that we totally can access it like normal people.


Pretending!

I do notice that in the video, it’s not a secure connection.

There are charts that show CPU, memory usage, I/O.

You can also add other servers using the service if need be, and see storage systems set up to your server.

Or, you could, if we had the capability here.

Contactless Tech’s Role in the New Guest Experience ft. Intelity and The George

 Contactless hospitality technology is growing. You want to get away, and you'll be damned if a little thing like a deadly virus will stop you! But you still don't want to touch things. Ew. During the chat between INTELITY CEO Robert Stevenson and THE GEORGE Director of Operations Kerrie Hunter, you’ll learn how the historic boutique hotel has adapted a mobile-first guest experience in the wake of COVID-19—and how they see contactless technology affecting the future of hospitality. I don't remember how I found INTELITY (probably hoping to score a position with them), but I liked them enough to stay on the e-mail lists.  

Connecting IoT Devices to a Registration Server (Packet Tracer, Cisco)

In Packet Tracer, a demo software made by Cisco Systems. It certainly has changed a lot since 2016. It's almost an Olympic feat to even get started with it now, but it does look snazzy. This is for the new CCNA, that integrates, among other things, IoT and Automation, which I've worked on here before. Instructions here . I don't know if this is an aspect of "Let's make sure people are paying attention and not simply following blindly", or an oversight - The instructions indicate a Meraki Server, when a regular one is the working option here. I have to enable the IoT service on this server. Also, we assign the server an IPv4 address from a DHCP pool instead of giving it a static one. For something that handles our IoT business, perhaps that's safer; Getting a new IPv4 address every week or so is a minimal step against an intruder, but it is a step. There are no devices associated with this new server; In an earlier lab (not shown), I attached them to 'H
