In Other BSDs for 2020/03/28

I have multiple BSD based systems to update, reboot, and hopefully not physically visit in the next week or so.

jails and loopback IPs

Jails on DragonFly can now route to loopback addresses (i.e. 127.0.0.1).  Because of this, they can work like shared IPs and the jail can connect to the host.

I think this means that you no longer have to bind jail services to specific IPs as you did previously.  Don’t quote me on that; I’ve run few jails in my life.

Update: I should have linked this too: the sysctl jail.defaults.allow_listen_override that makes it easier in the host system too.

Random this week, but that’s not so different than usual.

A bit short this week; I think everyone’s been occupied with other issues.

Again, dumping out all the links I can in case you are stuck at home.

Your unrelated music link of the week: Hannibal Rex – The One Hundred & Forty Faces Of?.?.?.  Has the same drive as early Mix Master Mike, to my ear.  (via)

Throwing all the links I can out there.

I had so many tabs open they weren’t all showing, so you get a straight dump.
