Re: duplicate ip in conficker blocking

omega-00, Appreciate all the time you're spending on this. Removing the duplicates is good. My concern now is that since opendns is blocking the domains, we're not getting a good ip back when resolved. I'm only getting two different ip addresses....and opendns has been notifying me that my network m...

Re: duplicate ip in conficker blocking

I've been getting that too. OpenDns is actively blocking the conficker domains. I've only been getting 2 different ip's when I run the script. One is amazon and the other is opendns. I'm wondering if there is a way to detect the domains on the list using dns cache. Some script to check the dns cache...

action=dst-nat to-addresses=10.0.0.215 to-ports=80

At the top with the antenna? 1 watt amp = 30dbm and 6dbi antenna = 36dbm - line loss, connectors, etc...might put you at 34dbm or allow f...

I'd try a different power supply. 18 volts preferably. I know it's been working for months but your at the low end of the voltage requirement. Assuming the tower is ~150 feet, you're only getting about 10-11 volts to the units. XR's are power hungry devices. I have 3 RB411A running off a 13V power s...

Use torch on interface ether1 and see if the ip address you want to filter isn't actually destination address. If that's the case you need to change your rules and "in interface".

Only thing I can think of is create a script that will run the scan for xx seconds, log the results to disk or file and then reboot.
Then you can log back in and read the log or file.
