    Solved Upgrade to 12.4 from 12.3 - sshd_config file trashed

    I have a number of special settings in /etc/ssh/sshd_config. When I tried to upgrade from 12.3 to 12.4 the config merge process removes everyone of them including the ListenAddress which disables sshd altogether. I do not recall having this difficulty with previous upgrades. Is my memory going...

    freebsd-update fetch & install, reverted my patch level from p4 to p3, but reports it's p5?

    Something very odd just occurred on my laptop when I performed a freebsd-update fetch & install. When I did the fetch it reported that there was a new patch (I was already on p4), so I then performed the "freebsd-update install" as usual and then did a reboot. When I checked it using uname -a...

    One major difference that I found between Linux and FreeBSD || How frequently do you install updates ?

    After moving from Arch Linux to FreeBSD 13.0-RELEASE-p7 one major difference that I found was the fact that under all Linux distros there is only one update mechanism which updates both the base and user land packages. For example under Debian/Ubuntu you need to run only sudo apt update && sudo...

    freebsd-update IDS flagging everything

    This one is kind of maddening. 4 brand new servers, all installed around the same time, firewalled to only allow ssh from a handful of IPs, and key-based auth only. It's a fair assumption that none of them were broken into, both based on the access restrictions and the fact the the "IDS" option...
