Installing Home Assistant (Hass.io) on Cent OS

Installing Home Assistant (Hass.io) on Cent OS

In this piece we’ll be installing Home Assistant in Docker on Cent OS. The reasons why I chose Cent OS and how to set it up are described in the following posts: Set up a secure home server with Cent OS – Part 1 Set up a secure home server with Cent OS – Part 2: Samba Because of scalability and administratability, I’ve decided go to with Docker containers this time. My Pi already runs Hass.io and I like the…

Set up a secure home server with Cent OS – Part 2: Samba

Set up a secure home server with Cent OS – Part 2: Samba

Hey all, this is part 2 of setting up an Cent OS server. For backup and accessibility, I always set up a Samba share. Samba is a filesharing protocol supported by Microsoft Windows, Linux and MacOS and I therefor prefer this type of fileshare over others in terms of compatibility. If you want to see other parts of this series: Set up a secure home server with Cent OS – Part 1 Samba is can be challenging to set up…

Set up a secure home server with Cent OS – Part 1

Set up a secure home server with Cent OS – Part 1

Hey all, In this post I want to take a look at setting up a secure home server with Cent OS. Why Cent OS and not the more common distros such as Debian? Well, I like the stability and leanness of Cent and the applications such as the packet manager are neat as well. Pretty much everything runs on this thing as easy as it does under Debian, but the added security and stability are a great plus. Besides, such…

Ruckus Unleashed Gateway Mode setup: The thing Ruckus didn’t tell you

Ruckus Unleashed Gateway Mode setup: The thing Ruckus didn’t tell you

Having problems setting up a gateway mode on Ruckus Unleashed access points that have a single RJ45 connector? You’re not the only one. During a test here in the office, I just found out that enabling Gateway Mode on the Unleashed Master during the setup makes it impossible to pair other new access points, even with Mesh enabled. The problem is that other new access points don’t have the meshing data just yet and since the master AP only possesses…

Wireless network loop, Point-to-point down

Wireless network loop, Point-to-point down

Hey all, Today one of my wireless networks pulled me a new one. I had basically created a loop in the network, but it took a while to figure this one out. I had noticed in the virtual SmartZone that the network of one of our APs had started to mesh differently from our design. So much so, that even management of some remote AP’s became a bit sluggish. The network is set up with several Ruckus P300 point-to-point AP’s to…

Ruckus Unleashed APs disassociate from their master AP

Ruckus Unleashed APs disassociate from their master AP

In my first, technical post, I’d like to go a bit more in-depth on a technical issue I’ve encountered in my work. Working with Ruckus products, I’ve had my fair share of experience and troubles with the new Unleashed series. Unleashed is a product series that integrates a selection of zonedirector features into the APs, to allow for a cheaper network deployment. Unleashed is limited to 512 simultaneous clients and a maximum of 25 APs in the network. Furthermore a…

Welcome to my site and here is what to expect.

Welcome to my site and here is what to expect.

First of all, welcome to my new site! I have finally found a new goal for this domain after keeping it around for years and small projects. My struggle with some of the issues and technologies in my work are time consuming to solve and I’m sure I’m not the only one. Some of the information I’ve found recently is not or poorly indexed in Google’s search engine and thus hard to find. So why not to share some tips &…
