Right so it is owned by Defense Information Systems Agency... thats... scary...

Recently discovered the following two addresses in my DNS-filter, 26.26.26.1 and 26.26.26.2. How can I confirm that these belong to? These are both public-ip addresses but seems to be owned by the US Military?

If I look at https://www.abuseipdb.com/check/26.26.26.2, it says it belongs to:

  • ISP: DoD Network Information Center
  • Type: Military
  • Country: US.

What does this mean? As far as I've researched, its got something to do with Socks protocol? This Github repo I found seems to be using it too, but why is it used? If anyone knows, id very much appreciate your help.

edit1: formatting

edit2: Found an additional GH Repo that use the same IP addresses for something called V2RayVPNService: https://github.com/2dust/v2rayNG/blob/master/V2rayNG/app/src/main/kotlin/com/v2ray/ang/service/V2RayVpnService.kt

edit3: This blogpost explains it quite well. https://blog.erratasec.com/2013/12/dod-address-space-its-not-conspiracy.html

The reason all these address spaces are DoD is because that's really the only source of unused IPv4 addresses left. All IPv4 address ranges have been assigned. But, the DoD has been assigned 20% of the IPv4 address space, but most of it is used within the DoD, on their own private networks, and is not routable to the outside world. Thus, if you are looking for a large chunk of "private" addresses that won't suddenly one day be assigned to Akamai or Amazon (and thus, explode in your face), then DoD addresses are the way to go.

Worked for me at least, but only have a few blocked

[–] [email protected] 1 points 3 months ago

I'll check it out and compare to the other solutions 😊

[–] [email protected] 1 points 3 months ago

Cool thanks 👌

Ah, I only checked via Voyager app since I'm mostly browsing Lemmy via mobile. But then I'll find this later tonight in browser, thanks 😊

 

Or is it faster to do it manually? I am subscribed to almost 120 different communities, so would save a few clicks not having to do it manually.

Do you have a source in terms of the ISPs altering websites? Would love to mention that in my thesis.

[–] [email protected] 5 points 3 months ago

Ok now this is exciting news!!

[–] [email protected] 1 points 3 months ago

Woahh this one looks super neat! Defo gonna give this a try 🙌

 

Hiya, what's your favourite Firefox theme? Personally looking for a new one, as I like tooting around with new themes from time to time. Thought I'd chip in here and ask what theme you have as your main, maybe add a screenshot + link, so that it's easy for folk to see it 🦊

Hiya, I'm trying to install KDE Initiary as I'll be travelling soon. Heard this was a good travel planner on the Late Night Linux Podcast, however when I try to install the app I get the message as seen in the picture. Anyone got any idea of how I could this to work?

Edit:I am on GrapheneOS, but have tried to give Fdroid all permissions, but doesn't change anything.

Thanks 🙌

 

Hej Hej,

Recently discovered Espresso Romano and thought it was kind of crazy to add a slice of lemon to ones coffee. Then a colleague said he ads a small spoon of honey in his. So now I've been thinking about trying both of these, but also had me curios as to what else people add to their coffee? Let me know any twisters that you've either heard about or tried.

 

Hiya!

This is probably more simple than what I'm making into, but I want to be sure, so here we go:

Currently in the market for a good HDMI cable, however, I am curious as to what I need to know (as I know nothing about these cables) before buying one. So my use case for this scenario is a 3M long HDMI cable that will connect my desktop(Nobara or Bazzite) to my TV (that has Nvidia Shield). This is for easy access to couch gaming. My desktop has a RX 6700 XT card, but unsure about the specifications of the TV other than it being a 70inch one (can try to find this if its relevant), but I am not looking to stream 4k. So let me know what kinda specs/details i need to look for in a HDMI cable for this :)))

PS. I tried setting up Sunlight + Moonlight, but honestly seemed like a bit too much configuration for my liking, but might give it a go again later on. I've also only got access to medium-speed Wifi atm, so this isn't optional.

Been keeping a keen eye on Bazzite as it seems like a good distro for people like myself who mainly use the desktop pc to play games on. But it doesn't seem like a "typical" distro for a daily driver? How does Bazzite for example differ from Nobara which is another gaming-oriented distro? I'm just curious as I keep hearing good things about Bazzite, and wondering if there would be any benefit as to someone who is using Tumbleweed, to switch to Bazzite right now.

So, if you are a Bazzite user, or have experience: let me know how it went, and if you could daily drive it!

Edit: I guess the same could be asked for ChimeraOS?

 

Hiya, I've got a desktop (connected to wifi), and a server (without a networking card), and I do not have access to Ethernet/or the router. However, I do have a networking switch - and was wondering if I could bridge the WiFi from my desktop(Nobara), to the Switch, and have my other devices such as Raspberry Pi and my main server connect to that. If thats possible please let me know how, or point me to some resources, I believe I have to touch iptables in this case, but have never tweaked those before.

This is a very temporary solution for not having access to a router. But gotta live like this for 5 months, so gotta find a solution to get WiFi on my server, as cheap as possible.

Hiya folks, I am looking for a wifi extender that can serve as a temporary Ethernet solution for my server.

In short; My housing situation is temporary and while I do have access to WiFi, I do not have access to the router. So I thought I'd buy a WiFi extender that my server can connect to, until I move again (need to stay here 5 months). I thought about trying to bridge my connection from my Desktop PC to the Server, but realised that means I need both of them on at all times. So I'd rather buy an extender which I might be able to use long term.

I have been looking at Ubiquiti equipment, but seem a little expensive for me right now. However, this brand does look tempting to invest into in the future (feel free to suggest other brands, if you recommend any others!). But yeah; for now I think a WiFi Extender could do the job, one that has an Ethernet port ofc.

Edit; I could also invest in a cheap network card for the server ofc, might that be a better solution?

Any suggestions are much appreciated 🌻
