GPS Mashup

In this segment we’re joined by Bill from to talk about his clever mashup of his motovlog youtube videos and GPS data. Bill talks about motorcycle vlogging, goes over his equipment, and demonstrates his video technique. He then shows us via Dimdim how he uses Javascript, KML files and some code-fu to make a google map update in real time next to an embedded youtube video.

Virtual LANs

In this segment Matt explains the ins and outs of Virtual LANs and guides us through the setup of his Dell Powerconnect managed switches. If there is one thing he can’t stress enough it’s to ignore the web interface — thus far they’re all pretty much crap.

  • Hey guys! Great Episode!!

    The motorcycle part was a little boring (no offense), but I’m not much into motorcycles. Love the VLAN segment!

    Keep up the great work

    Ahaha Good Show!

    Matt’s segment was awesome!

    I thought the episode was very good but,I do have one question for the Hak5 team.

    Why not Logmein for remote connection ? :(

    We like Free :) :P

    Also PS: Darren will lose his unicorns again !

  • James,

    Logmein remote connection works for computers that you setup ahead of time.

    GoToAssist is for people who call you on a whim, and need support.
    I used it last night to troubleshoot a customer of mine who couldn’t figure out why they couldn’t send an email attachment.

    Turns out it was a 9MB JPG file, and after being on the phone for an hour trying to figure it out, I gave up and had her join my support session. Issue was then fixed in 5 minutes.

    While this can be accomplished via something like a reverse VNC, the ability to transfer files, chat with the user, and get a diagnostic report of the computer needing support in my opinion really make the product worth every penny.

    And no I don’t get a free account, I pay for my subscription ;)

    Guys,
    I use http://www.teamviewer.com/
    It’s free for a non-commercial use and you don’t need any thing but to tell the user to download a lighter version of the tool by sending them a url given on their website.

    I use it more and more recently, and it’s become a de facto way to provide technical help to family members and friends.

    Check it out.

    I meant to say that Darren will. *mistype*

    The motorcycle segment became very boring. The guy went on and on and on. Just had to say that.

    Matt,

    I agree that gotoassist what a great service. I signed up for the free trial to help a customer I sold a PC to. Then kept it to help family members around the country. So much faster and less mental pain. I would like a lower price so I am going to give Yasutaka’s suggestion a try. Great show as always. All the virtual segments has helped me a lot with classes I have been taking.

    Have to agree with proskater. The motorcycle GPS was quite boring. I actually skipped through it to Matt’s segment. About half way through Matt’s segment though, I decided to just close out. It’s starting to seem like the show is becoming more of a tutorial on how to setup a corporate network. Where’s the homebrew hacks, the coding, the interesting projects that can be done by those without access to a corporate network or unlimited cash flow?

  • Dave Snigier 5 years ago

    I for one love the corporate network setup stuff. It gives a solid base from which you can build from. Before home servers became user friendly I had cobbled one together based upon a the Linux RAID MD driver and Samba. It’s actually a very low cost setup using the best of the consumer (motherboard and drives) and the corporate (software and controller card)… okay so not the best but low cost.

    In fact, I recently picked up a Dell managed gigabit switch for around $200 on ebay and a netgear smart switch for around $100 and am currently using them at my house. If I get a chance I’ll throw my network diagram up on the contest page. Hopefully will get to setting up some VLANs to isolate my personal machines from guest WIFI and my family’s computers. I’m a college student so I definitely do not have unlimited funds.

    I’m currently working on my capstone project for an MIS degree and found myself referring to the segments on VPNs and VMs in creating a development and testing environment for my team. Matt and Darren are sysadmins that clearly know their stuff and you can pick up a lot from them that you might not get in reading wiki or man pages.

    Keep up the great work guys + Shannon!!!

  • I actually documented such a VLAN setup on my blog, just I did use a Dell PowerConnect, but instead of a Juniper I used OpenBSD gateway.

    Also a TeamViewer (free) fan – it has been easy for remote users to install and use with almost no guidance, and its performance is top-notch. Windows/Mac/Linux/iPhone.
