OpenVPN Client Runtime Issues Revisited
Sep 26, 2021
After having run OpenVPN clients in production for quite a bit of time, it became clear that having an easy way to resurrect dead tunnels was a good feature to have. In addition, having the ability to quickly switch egress IPs from a pool of available servers was more or less mandatory as well. For this reason, I needed to improve my hackish scripts and make them a bit more presentable.
How to deal with OpenVPN Client Runtime Issues?
Mar 21, 2021
Once you have a VPN setup running in production, one of the main issues will become availability in one form or another. Earlier, I wrote about routing domains and how they can help you operate multiple OpenVPN client tunnels on the same gateway device.
Issues with Availability In my practical human trials, I have encountered issues mostly with availability. The most common issue in my experience has been that the openvpn process dies due to an error condition it cannot handle, such as socket availability or an error condition with the client-server communication that it cannot deal with in a controlled manner.

Web Revamp - PART 1
Nov 7, 2020
I wanted to learn new things and set up a framework for serving static web pages. The easy way out of course would be to just use OpenBSD httpd and some type of templating, but that would’ve been too easy and for me it definitely falls under the “been there, done that” department.
This first part is more or less documenting what I’ve accomplished so far on my test setup, which still lacks some features I’ll detail at the end.

I changed some of the core technologies, which power huttu.net. The web frontend will be built with Hugo and the actual content might be hosted on IPFS. The revamp includes the following tech stacks:
