    Solved I2P for local network: "Connection refused"

    So I've been trying to use i2p more often (Im using the .jar from the official website since i2p in ports is outdated), but the most annoying thing is using it on a main desktop computer so whenever you reboot it has to restart and build tunnels all over again. I see a lot of people set it up on...

It started during the night with re0 losing connection and toggling link state between...

    Kerberized NFSv4 -> NFS over TLS on 13.0

    Has anyone got a good reference for how to set up krb5p security? I've got NFSv4 running fine without security, but that kerberos setup has been a major pain in the neck. There doesn't seem to be much logging going on, no matter how much -d or -h's I use. It appears, Wireshark is my only utility...

    So, a Pi4 box is a server (, a FreeBSD 13.0 laptop is a client ( As far I understood, mount Samba is absolutely impossible? Because mount_smbfs still doesn't know what is SMB2+ 😣 (I don't want to use smbclient, really). OK, let's try NFS. No way too. It just hangs...

    Solved Jail started with broken network interface (config error) but appeared to be fine.

    Because I made a (huge) mistake in a config file I ran into a problem that took me long to solve because I missed out on obvious error messages when my jails started. I guess with the way jails work, the behavior that I encountered is just how it is, not a bug. But I do want to describe it...
