For the LUG meeting this month Donnie would like to give us a tour of his building at 2215 6th Ave. There is potential for this location to serve as the primary location for a local maker group. So for our regularly-scheduled meeting time we will tour the location and discuss our options and ideas for getting a maker space going in Billings!
This is a great chance for anyone interested in a local place to work on technology projects to come out and share their ideas and needs. Ultimately we believe that the right location and core group of people could serve as a sort of incubator for new business and technology in Billings.
Please note we are starting an hour earlier this time.
Meeting Thursday, 4/18, 6 PM at:
Pizza Place, 2215 6th Ave North, Billings
The meeting this month was delayed by one week because several members went to LinuxFest Northwest in Bellingham, Washington at the end of April... and weren't quite ready for a meeting the following Thursday.
Topic for this meeting is open but we will be discussing the LinuxFest Northwest trip if anyone is interested. Another informal topic will be systemd.
Hope to see you at the meeting.
**Please note new meeting time and location this month (see below)**
This month Dan Denson will take the lead showing us many possibilities and great features of the MikroTik line of routers (http://mikrotik.com).
He will use an RB1200 serving as "the Internet"/ISP with one port serving DHCP, one for static IP, and another PPPoE so we can illustrate each connectivity type that is common. Then he will create VPN tunnels with PPTP and SSTP, as well as IPSec transport mode with IPIP and GRE tunnels. For routing, he will show both OSPF dynamic routing as well as plain old static routes.
