Here's an interesting problem... If you have a VM behind a Sophos UTM (or other firewall such as ASA) on a VMware ESXi 6.x host using be2net Emulex driver but you get an error 400 (bad request) when trying to browse external sites, the be2net driver itself might be somehow stripping the HTTP headers. We logged this invalid request:

xx.xx.xx.xx - - [31/Dec/2018:16:49:49 -0800] "\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00" 400 166 "-" "-"

This was the case with the following driver configuration:

driver: be2net
version: 10.2.254.0
firmware-version: 10.2.261.36

A solution was to revert back to the elxnet driver. We ran into issues on this driver in the past which led us to enabling be2net originally (ESXi 5.5 and IBM OEM image). So if you're running into this issue under ESXi 6.x with the IBM/Lenovo OEM image on an HS23 blade, do this:

esxcli system module set --enabled=false --module=be2net
esxcli system module set --enabled=true --module=elxnet

Reboot your host and re-test.

They also spam you out of this range too:

NetRange:       216.55.172.0 - 216.55.175.255
CIDR:           216.55.172.0/22

NetHandle:      NET-216-55-172-0-1

NetType:        Direct Allocation

NetRange:       209.235.128.0 - 209.235.159.255
CIDR:           209.235.128.0/19

So nullroute 216.55.172.0/22 and 209.235.128.0/19

Also if you forward the spam they send you to their abuse system, it rejects it because it has "spam like characteristics"

  admin@internetnamesforbusiness.com
    SMTP error from remote mail server after end of data:
    host mx1.megamailservers.com [209.235.142.11]:
    550 5.7.1 w6GJWVT5024637 This message has been blocked for containing SPAM-like characteristics.

The irony...

This company VerticalResponse Inc doesn't care about spam abuse and will keep blasting you with unwanted mail while ignoring abuse complaints. I suggest you nullroute their network.

NetRange:       74.116.88.0 - 74.116.91.255
CIDR:           74.116.88.0/22

I suggest sysadmins null route the IP blocks advertised by servers.com as they let spammers run on their network. Here is the result of a recent spam complaint against them:

His government puts private data out in a public website and then arrests someone for accessing it. This dumbass still thinks he's in the right and will probably never learn how the Internet works.

I ran into this error trying to run setenv on my SGI Indy to a MAC within the standard SGI pool 08:00:69:x:x:x as I suspected this is why my onboard ec0 network adapter was not visible in IRIX. Turns out the MAC shown was for a secondary network card in the system (ec2) and it was causing IRIX to throw an invalid MAC warning during boot.

I'm not sure if there's a way around this in order to keep the second NIC in the system, but I simply removed it which allowed ec0 to show up in IRIX again. No more invalid MAC warning during boot and I could throw an IP on ec0 and ping things.

A new area on the preterhuman.net site is our blog located at https://preterhuman.net/blog/

It'll focus mostly on computing topics and likely many will be retro/vintage computing related. Site updates and news about preterhuman.net will also be posted.
