I have a friend of mine, a small business owner, who manages his own linux server. Its a simple web server using plain jane html … and he loves to manage the server himself. Except, when he gets locked out because his home ip is dynamic and he is using lfd/csf as a security layer. He calls me, we chat, the chats always end up with something like “hey, can you reset my ip when you get time” and i love talking to him … he is a great friend, but third time is a charm … meaning, I love helping friends out but if I have to fix the same problem more than once, I am likely going to find a more permanent solution. And this is what I came up with ….
