Contributed by nayden on Fri Aug 12 03:10:49 2016 (GMT)
from the (XOR) cookies and pilsner dept.

Our next report comes from Philip Guenther, who writes,

I don't actually do much hacking in the network stack. I've done some fixes and cleanup in the syscall/ioctl layers, but otherwise I stay out of sys/net*, so what was I doing at n2k16?

Our next report comes from Ken Westerback (krw@), who writes,

Suprise upgrade to Business! Yay! Bumped by a paying customer to a seat with a non-functional entertainment unit. Boo. Running the length of Frankfurt airport to meet Theo's flight in time. Yay! No Theo. Boo. I can still meet the ANZAC contingent in Prague to share trip downtown. Yay! They walk right past me even with my UQ hat on. Boo. Yet Another Hackathon Travel Adventure.

  • OpenBSD: pf+rdomains create splendid multi-tenancy firewalls - Philipp Buehler (formerly known as pb@)
  • Dropping in 80Gbits (hopefully) of stateful firewalling capacity with PF and OpenOSPFd - Gareth Llewellyn
  • What we learnt from natively building packages on exotic archs - landry@
  • Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) implementation and support in OpenBSD - phessler@
  • Retrofitting privsep into ports tools - espie@
  • Why and how you ought to keep multibyte character support simple - ingo@
  • And an OpenBSD related tutorial is

    Contributed by phessler on Mon Jul 25 09:51:27 2016 (GMT)
    from the al the bits that want to fly dept.

    The first report from the just-concluded n2k16 hackathon comes from Stefan Sperling, who writes:

    Because this network hackathon was scheduled very close to the 6.0 release I focused my efforts on fixing bugs.

    The first bug I encountered was that dhclient no longer works if DHCP return traffic has to pass through a bridge, and the member interface which receives the DHCP return traffic also has a dhclient instance running on it:
