    How to specify either aufs or overlay2 for Ubuntu 20.04

    It is as easy as sudoing your nano at /etc/docker/daemon.json. I checked and for me this file didn’t yet exist. There was another .json file but not daemon.json. Then add the following clause: { “storage-driver”: “aufs”} Or, if you prefer: { “storage-driver”: “overlay2”} Save it and restart docker however you prefer. I use systemctl. If you do a docker info you’ll see that your preferred storage driver is now used. Enjoy the rest of your project.

Take for instance a typical situation: One external IP address provided from the ISP with many…

    A CISCO Lab

    Merry Christmas to those celebrating it. Hanuka for those celebrating that. Kwanzaa for others, and a number of other year-end/year-beginning festivals as well. I wish all of you peace, and good health for yourselves and your families. In another week or two I will be taking the CCNA as one of the final parts of my Bachelor’s degree, so I’m doing a lot of labs. In packet-tracer(from Cisco) and on the Cisco equipment I bought in pursuit of a career in network engineering/operations and security. As part of that process I’ve consumed a lot of content from many sources. From my WGU (my college), from LinkdIn Learning, Pluralsight, Udemy. from…

    Brain dropping: NMAP

    I’m starting a ‘brain droppings’ thread. As I do searches for one thing or another I will try to place the actionable results here. For me mainly because if I looked it up once, I will likely be needing it eventually again…and as a public service of sorts in case someone else is looking this stuff up. NMAP on Ubuntu 20.04 The nmap utility is present on Ubuntu 20.04 just as you would expect. However, zenmap is not present. There are ways to get it, such as downloading the .RPM from nmap.org and using alien to convert it into a .deb for installing with dpkg. There is another GUI for…
