To hop on the trend and also contribute to the forum outside of Lounging and lurking, I’ve decided to start a thread on my daily projects at work and anything else relevant to the forum that some may find interesting. I basically manage and do the grunt work for an MSP (Managed Services Provider). I’ll be sharing networking projects, server stuff, and maybe a little bit of me fumbling around with Linux.
I started out as a PC gamer when I was a kid, got into PC building at around 13 years old (my gaming computer sucks though, so don’t expect any porn of that sort.) A few twists and turns and a college drop out later, here I am! I have been doing this stuff for 3 years now, so if you are looking for an expert, that’s not me
To start, today I’m setting up a USG, UniFi switch, and AP AC Pro for a small law firm in New Orleans. Eager to test out the built in IPS feature, this is my first time going with the UniFi line of switches and routers. Will be going in a pretty white Tripp-Lite rack that I’ll be installing in their suite on Monday along with setting up their workstations and pulling new cabling for the suite. Sort of a small scale project (3 person office for now) but I thought it would be cool to post nonetheless.
The workstations are Dell Optiplex 9020s. i5-4590S, 8GB RAM, and 512GB SSDs. They should be quite pleased as their current PCs are white dog shit.
