irg-NET-Lab 1.0 U2

By H. Cemre Günay

The previously mentioned poor wireless LAN quality was optimized in this home lab update. There were several wireless LAN access point and repeater manufacturers to choose from. I decided for a homogeneous infrastructure and therefore the FRITZ!WLAN Mesh Repeater 3000 came into question and lo and behold, the wireless LAN quality is now at 100%.

You can find the link to the repeater below.

I also implemented a new application in VMware vSphere called Nextcloud. Nextcloud is a free software for storing data (file hosting) on a dedicated server. When using a client, the server is automatically synchronized with a local directory. This allows access to a consistent database from multiple computers, but also via a web interface. Video conferencing and “sharing” one’s own screen are also possible.

Nextcloud can be installed on a private server or web space at no additional cost. With Nextcloud, the owner retains complete control over their data, and opportunities for data misuse are reduced.

I will soon publish an installation guide for this under Advanced Tutorials.
