Note to self

[ #20647 ]

I've arrived in Redmond, trip was smooth and uneventful.

Must remember to configure an sshd somewhere on port 53. There are a number of t-mobile hotspots cropping up around the world that leave port 53 wide open (even to tcp connections). Beats paying £6 an hour or whatever it is they wanted from me.

  • I understand the necessity of paying for wireless while in airports, but it would be travesty to pay for wireless while you're here in Seattle given the huge number of high quality independent cafes (and bars, and pizza parlors) offering it for free.

    Most are in the city proper [], but there are a handful over in Redmond []

  • I totally agree. However last time I considered doing something similar-- setting up OzymanDNS -- I ran into the problem that every static IP I could do this on is already running a DNS server ;)
  • Some providers do funny things with port 53-- the only configuration I've found which works all the time is to set up sshd on port 443. It's always open because of https, and no funny tricks can be played because it's SSL.
