    Hi Chris,

    that's a funny idea. This week is a short week, because Friday is a holiday for us, so I'll exchange official office with home-office the day after tomorrow :). Had my youngest daughter at work with me yesterday and today, home-schooling isn't that much fun after a few weeks at home.

    Besides dealing with the daily dose of insanity, I was hoping for Capture Client 3.0 this week, but maybe tomorrow. So testing this gem will be on my list for this week. Will definitely give the SonicOS Beta a test-drive as well.

    A customer is installing AlienVault as a SIEM, probably needs a helping hand to get it work with the SonicWall Appliances. If I can spare some time, I'll go ELK hunting again and see how this works out as a SIEM-alike.

    Ubuntu 20.04 came out, preparing a few VMs with it, the whole Network gets restructured finally and a NSA is in the middle of that mess :).

    Last but not least I was tinkering around with Packet Mirroring from a SonicWall appliance, need to find out if this UDP/4999 datastream is documented somehow, if there is no 2nd appliance to receive.

    I guess that's it, nothing out of the ordinary.

    Stay safe all.

    Hi All,

    This week I completed the course "Project Management in Practice - Planning, Scheduling and Resource Management "and cleared the assessment. Friday is a holiday here as well, so I am planning to help my wife with cooking and I might join my brother in a play station battel. @Chris , what is the secret of that beard? Please share with all.😋

    Nice job @KaranM ! I hope both you and @BWC enjoy your respective holidays.

    hahaha 🤣 the secret to the beard? Simply time. Turning a winter beard into an extended winter/stay at home beard with New York being in lock down.

    Hello Everyone,

    This week I have been busy with the beta tests on all the different programs that I am participating in. Also, had a lot of meetings lined up for various discussions.

    Here were the goals I had in mind and making small progress day by day on them

    1) Learn Python basics

    2) Complete beta tests and provide feedback

    3) Work on a super important replication related to CFS

    This week has been a busy one and I am happy that I was able to take baby steps towards all the goals I had in mind. Eagerly waiting for the weekend to kick back and relax. I will be cooking new dishes and enjoying some painting/sketching time over the weekend.

    @Chris You look so different with the beard, it's like a whole new person. Also, your dog is super cute!

    Stay home and stay safe, everyone!!
