If parts of your letsencrypt renewals succeed and others give you “urn:acme:error:connection” then just retry

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/12/10

On the same server, part of my letsencrypt renewals worked fine, while others had an error like this:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Processing /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/spring4d.4delphi.com.conf
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cert is due for renewal, auto-renewing...
Renewing an existing certificate
Performing the following challenges:
tls-sni-01 challenge for spring4d.4delphi.com
Waiting for verification...
Cleaning up challenges
Attempting to renew cert from /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/spring4d.4delphi.com.conf produced an unexpected error: Failed authorization procedure. spring4d.4delphi.com (tls-sni-01): urn:acme:error:connection :: The server could not connect to the client to verify the domain :: Error getting validation data. Skipping.
...
 - The following errors were reported by the server:

   Domain: spring4d.4delphi.com
   Type:   connection
   Detail: Error getting validation data

   To fix these errors, please make sure that your domain name was
   entered correctly and the DNS A record(s) for that domain
   contain(s) the right IP address. Additionally, please check that
   your computer has a publicly routable IP address and that no
   firewalls are preventing the server from communicating with the
   client. If you're using the webroot plugin, you should also verify
   that you are serving files from the webroot path you provided.

A retry worked fine:

Anaylizing PDF files

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/12/10

A few things that failed/worked:

I still need to look at the Multivalent.jar when I have a system with Java again, as it is mentioned in [WayBack] pdf generation – Is there a tool to analyze a PDF in terms of fonts, objects, fields and their respective size (kb)? – Stack Overflow

Windows Server 2008 and Server 2008 R2 – OpenDNS

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/12/10

I did this a long time ago, but forgot to blog about it back then: [Archive.isWindows Server 2008 and Server 2008 R2 – OpenDNS.

Summary:

Start with the DNS manager:

%SystemRoot%\system32\dnsmgmt.msc /s

Then open your machine, and double-click Forwarders:

In the dialog, click the Edit button and add DNS servers (for instance Google DNS 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4).

In my case it became this:

Google DNS servers added

Google DNS servers added

Click Done buttons until all dialogs are closed.
