Some links on using and updating Let’s Encrypt certificates for internal servers

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/02/01

Sometimes it is easier to have current and public CA signed TLS certificates for internal servers than to setup and maintain an internal CA and register it on all affected browsers (including mobile phones).

One of my reasons to investigate this is that Chrome refuses to save credentials on servers that have no verifiable TLS certificate, see my post Some links on Chrome not prompting to save passwords (when Firefox and Safari do) about a week ago.

Below are some links for my link archive that hopefully will allow me to do this with Let’s Encrypt (msot via [Wayback] letsencrypt for internal servers – Google Search):

Since I need this for ESXi:

Some links on Chrome not prompting to save passwords (when Firefox and Safari do)

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/01/20

For quite some time now, Chrome (think years) refuses to prompt for saving passwords whereas Firefox and Safari do prompt and save them, even for site types that it used to save passwords for in the past.

It has been annoying enough for too long now that I tried to do better than the Google searches I used back when I saw this happen first.

Below are some links based on new searches (starting with [Wayback] adding a password in chrome settings – Google Search); hopefully I can try them after I made a list of sites that Chrome does not show the password save prompt for.

Solutions I tried that failed (but maybe useful for others):

Solutions still to try:

Fritz!Box repeater and other devices: “Radar detection enabled. At the moment no wireless LAN connection (5 GHz) is possible; please wait.”

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/05/31

If any of your Fritz!Box devices under “Wireless” -> “Radio Channel” -> “5-GHz band”  the indicates “Radar detection enabled. At the moment no wireless LAN connection (5 GHz) is possible; please wait.” – Google Search:

  1. Click on the “Refresh Auto Channel” button
  2. Wait until it has chosen a new 5Ghz channel
  3. Verify you can connect over 5Ghz
  4. If you still cannot connect, retry steps 1…3 once.

I had this only happen on 1750E repeaters so far, but others seem to have had it on other Fritz!Box devices as well.

In the Netherlands, potentially affected channels seem to be 52 through 140.

Installing as a LAN -> WiFi bridge: FRITZ!WLAN Repeater 1750E

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/01/21

I have a bunch of [WayBackFRITZ!WLAN Repeater 1750E | Overview | AVM International devices; this is the quickest way to install them as LAN -> WiFi bridge (connect ethernet to your LAN; use the WiFi as a bridge).

  1. Connect the FRITZ!WLAN to your LAN
  2. Connect the FRITZ!WLAN to power
  3. Connect your laptop to the WiFi SSID FRITZ!WLAN Repeater 1750E with password 00000000 (that eight times a zero)
  4. Set your laptop with a fixed IP address 192.168.178.127 with netmask 255.255.255.0 and gateway 192.168.178.2 for WiFi.
  5. Connect to your FRITZ!WLAN at http://192.168.178.2
  6. Setup your FRITZ!WLAN for the first time (password, country) and have it reboot
  7. Logon to the FRITZ!WLAN
  8. Change the WiFI password and the SSID for 2.4 Ghz and 5.0 Ghz channels (I use a different SSID for both as many Fritz!Box devices have both bad 2.4Ghz performance and a hard time to automatically switch from 2.4Ghz to 5.0Ghz on the same SSID automagically).
  9. Change your laptop to use DHCP on WiFi
  10. Reconnect to the Fritz!Box with the new SSID and password

Reminder to self: when your PPTP server is behind a NAT, forward both GRE protocol and TCP port 1723

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/06/06

The WAN sides of my Mikrotik CCR1009 are partly behind Fritz!Box routers that do NAT and contain a truckload of port-forwards.

A while ago, I wanted the CCR1009 to do PPTP as Fritz!Box 7360 and 7490: static routes over VPN don’t work (so I could only VPN to the WAN side of the CCR1009). However, it would not pass through the Fritz!Box from the outside.

It appears you need to forward both:

Maybe one day I will ditch the Fritz!Box 7490 and directly hookup the Mikrotik to the NTU: xs4all ftth en Mikrotik router – Google Groups.

But preferably I should follow Don’t use PPTP, and don’t use IPSEC-PSK either (via: CloudCracker blog)

Forward both PPTP TCP port 1723 and the GRE protocol

Forward both PPTP TCP port 1723 and the GRE protocol
