Setting Up Apache Guacamole with Docker Stack

Get remote access to your computers via an HTML5 web page

There have been many times I've needed to access my home computers but did not have the ability to use SSH or RDP, usually because those technologies end up blocked wherever I am. I already have the capability to VPN into my network, but there are times and locations where that technology gets blocked too. The one technology that never gets blocked (unless you live in a country that censors the internet) is standard web pages running on ports 80 or 443.


Using Wyam on GitLab Pages with Continuous Integration

Learn to automatically generate and upload your Wyam site to GitLab Pages with only a git push.

Continuous Integration with Wyam is a quest many have considered and promptly rejected because...it's hard. It's not natively supported on many platforms because it doesn't run on linux. At least not at the time of this article's publication. But take heart, brave adventurer, for all is not lost! Two possibilites exist to triumph in your quest: either wait for .NET Core support or follow this very tutorial.


Adopting Remote UniFi Devices with Windows Server DHCP

Learn to use a vendor-specific DHCP Option 43 to inform UniFi devices about a UniFi Controller on another network.

UniFi Access Points (APs) and other devices are fantastic, but can be difficult to adopt from a UniFi Controller if they never show up. Many different DHCP servers can be configured to tell the devices where the Controller is. You can learn to configure several DHCP servers here but, to my knowledge, no one has yet written a tutorial on how to do this with Windows DHCP Server. This article aims to teach you just how to do that.
