JFFNMS 0.9.1 Released

JFFNMS 0.9.1 has the database extracts and updates missing from 0.9.0  This is the most problematic part of the project release; ensuring that the database updates correctly. Version 0.9.1 is functionally the same as 0.9.0, it is just with less bugs!  

JFFNMS and IPv6

ipv6-google-rrt.png

One of the many Free Software projects I work on is JFFNMS, which is a network management system written in PHP. In light that the last IPv4 address blocks have now been allocated to APNIC it’s probably timely to look at how to manage network devices in a new IPv6 world.
First you need to get the basics sorted out and for that it is best to use the net-snmp command line utilities to check all is well. Then its onto what to do in JFFNMS itself.
Now fixed with proper markup, I hope.

JFFNMS 0.8.5 released

After my usual battle with PHP and database exports, jffnms 0.8.5 is now released. This program is a network management system written in PHP.  The worst part about the whole maintaining process for it would have to be is the release. Why is it so difficult to track changes within a database and PHP code?
