Cheap mod chips plus free dev tools equals hello world on the Nintendo DS! Jason joins us to geek out about code up the dual screen’d programmers playground that is NDS homebrew. Matt has answers to your questions about Virtual Routers, Paul comes out from behind the camera to school us on SSH Tunneling for the Mac, and Darren’s featuring some pretty Python & PHP to tunnel cross platform.
Title: Virtual Routers?

Joe Switch writes in to ask what the deal is with Virtual Routers and other such untangable networks. Matt has the answer. The way I understand it your more high end (read: expensive) Cisco and Juniper routers have virtual routers built in — much like you might have a virtual interface like eth0:1 in Linux — to manage VLANS, IP subnets and such.
Matt goes on to explain that in the vSphere product by VMware you can use the APIs to write, basically, a software based switch to compliment your existing deployments. Check out the Cisco Nexus 1000V. It’s a software implementation of a Cisco Nexus switch. I’d love to get my hands on it but at nearly $1000/year I’ll find something open source. Speaking of which, we’ve been meaning to play with a Cisco virtual network application but are in need of an ISO. If you’re privy to an open source alternative or can help out drop us a line.
Make your own Nintendo DS Games for free!
If it begins with a #include and ends in a semi-colon our friend Jason is all over it. This week he’s in studio covering a subject near and dear to our hearts — Nintendo DS Homebrew.
Let’s face it, the Nintendo DS is a happy little platform full of hacking potential. And with a well established homebrew community it’s the perfect device to start your next weekend project with. Jason takes you from Homebrew 101, including carts and roms, to getting the Dev tools and building your first Hello World app.

Mac tunneling the free and easy way
Paul can’t hide behind the camera forever, and this week we’re pleased to have him break down the free and easy way to SSH Tunnel on a mac. After Hak5 viewer Lavi wrote in about SSHTunnel 1.6 Paul was happy to check out the program. Thanks for sending in your freeware picks!
SSH Tunneling the cross-platform way with Python and PHP
Another great bit of feedback from the SSH Tunneling segment in episode 614 was from Jan-Marten in The Netherlands. His Hak5 inspired cross-platform Python and PHP scripts, available from his blog johmanx.com allow you to easily configure and save SSH tunneling options. Awesome code Jan-Marteen, thanks for sending it in!
Of course if you have feedback for the show, code you’d like to send by, tips on legally acquiring a cisco IOS, freeware you want to let us know about, questions, or criticisms just write us: firstname.lastname@example.org
