Layer 2 overview
Layer 3 overview
we have a single-vlan flat network. The following prefix is active on this network:
Within this prefix, we have multiple ranges for multiple purposes:
- 10.208.0.x Network devices
- 10.208.1.x Servers
- 10.208.2.x DHCP clients
- 10.208.3.x DHCP clients
If you are unsure which range you should use, stick with DHCP. DHCP clients can set their hostname via dynamic DNS. Clients in statically managed networks must specify a hostname in IPAM. If something is to be part of the infrastructure fabric of the space, it should be in the Servers range. Be sure to contact BOFH if you want to place a system in this range.
The default gateway on this network is 10.208.0.1

- Harmony Racklight
- Blind Aardlek switch
The NURDspace infrastructure is managed by the BOFH team.

Upcoming features and functionality
See our roadmap for a list of upcoming features and functionality. If you think something should be added, add this to either the backlog or ideas, depending on the feature. You are more then welcome to join the bofh team to implement features and functionality yourself!
Network management administrative interfaces
You can manage our devices using the URLs below:

We support hosting multiple virtual machines, using both the KVM and the LXC model. These are deployed using proxmox. We have introduced the 'managed vm', which is a vm which adheres to nurdspace standards. For more information, see the ManagedVM and the Ansible pages.
We do daily full backups of managed systems. More details can be found on the Backup page.
All servers have a unique ECDSA certificate which can be used for both client and server authentication. Details about this setup can be found on the TLS page.
In order to make devices available for discovery, a couple of protocols can be enabled. Note that this only applies to physical systems, not VM/LXCs.
The first one of these is lldp (Link-Layer Discovery Protocol). This protocol communicates device attributes to connected peers via ethernet frames. Lldp is enabled on all networking devices. Enabling these should only be done for systems that are physically connected to the network (eg, using an ethernet cable or wifi). Under debian, this is done as follows:
apt install lldpd systemctl enable --now lldpd
The second protocol to enable is snmp (Simple Network Management Protocol). This protocol allows a device to be queried for various network and host metrics, and allowing us to keep a precise count of per-device traffic rates. But above all, this gives us shiney graphs ^_^
First, install the required daemons and MIBs:
apt install snmp snmpd snmp-mibs-downloader download-mibs
Next, configure snmpd for use. Edit /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf and set the following two administrative fields:
sysLocation NURDspace,MODIFY_LOCATION_WITHIN_NURDSPACE sysContact Admins <email@example.com>
Next, make sure that snmpd can listen on all ip addresses and can be queried using the default community
#agentaddress 127.0.0.1,[::1] # ADD A HASH IN FRONT OF THIS LINE rocommunity public default rocommunity6 public default
Finally, enable snmpd and perform a testrun to verify if it is working:
systemctl enable --now snmpd root@erratic:~# snmpwalk -v2c -c public localhost iso.22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199 = STRING: "Linux erratic.lan.nurd.space 5.15.30-2-pve #1 SMP PVE 5.15.30-3 (Fri, 22 Apr 2022 18:08:27 +0200) x86_64" iso.188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206 = OID: iso.220.127.116.11.1.8072.3.2.10 iso.18.104.22.168.22.214.171.124 = Timeticks: (8715381) 1 day, 0:12:33.81 iso.126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52 = STRING: "Admins <firstname.lastname@example.org>" iso.184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11 = STRING: "erratic.lan.nurd.space" iso.18.104.22.168.22.214.171.124 = STRING: "NURDspace,Bar" ...
