Nginx .pfx SSL Private Key

I was just given an .pfx private key, and to my knowledge Nginx does not support this key format. So let's convert it to an .rsa file format. If you are on linux, this is super easy using the command line openssl program. If you are on Windows, I have no idea how to do that. But you could probably upload the .pfx file to the *nix server that is running your Nginx instance, and convert the file there. So let's get started.

Pardot Marketing Automation Review

Recently we decided to change direction in our marketing department, from outbound marketing to inbound content marketing.

It is more work, you will get very little help, and their support is horrible, when you eventually get them on chat. They only offer Chat Support.

2017-09-09 13:01 Tor, Administration, Networking

Have you ever needed to get applications running on a computer at home, available over the internet? I have several times, an SVN server, Chat Server, FTP server, testing HTTPd, SSH for my Raspberry Pi, just to name a few. The problem I have always face was configuring the router (or routers in most cases) to forward requests appropriately. And if I forgot to create an IP reservation for each device, come reboot time none of the configuration worked. It was a headache. Tor can actually fix this for us. While normally used for anonymity, it has some other cool features. Tor Hidden Service to be exact.
