Announcements From the Organizers

  • Conference tag: c4l10
  • Internet in guest rooms at the Renaissance Asheville is FREE. Use attwifi_meeting; we have more bandwidth and (thanks to mbklein) better IRC access. However, our bandwidth is still limited.
  • Hospitality Suite: 1115 (“open when a warm body is there”) - has a portable projector! Looks like this
  • Hotel Map - aside from the first floor we're using Swannanoa Room (2nd Floor)

SSH Tunneling to get around blocked ports

Ports blocked? Try this:

  • On your laptop, execute:
 ssh -f -N -L 9999:chat.freenode.net:6667 machine.I.have.rights.on

...where chat.freenode.net:6667 is the machine/port you want to eventually get to, machine.i.have.rights.on is...well, that, and 9999 is an empty port on your local machine.

You'll be prompted for a password if you need one, after which you can put it in the background.

Then you can set up your chat software to talk to localhost:9999 and you're set.

One can also use ssh to set up a SOCKS proxy:

 ssh -D [local_socks_port] [machine_I_have_rights_on]
