About Blog

enDuring the last few years I had several hobbies in which I gathered experiences in many different sections such as IT-Security (network, IPv6, encryption), playing instruments (electric guitar, synth), or other creative areas (time lapse videos, 3D imaging). Since I almost always used information from other users on the Internet, I want to present my test results in this blog, hoping that some persons out there can use it for further improvements, too.

For the sake of simplicity I am writing a few posts in my mother tongue (german), while posts concerning computer/network stuff are written in english to reach more persons worldwide. Also note that this is my private blog. All notes and suggestions are only my personal opinions and are not related to any company I am working for.

deIm Laufe der Jahre hat sich bei mir das ein oder andere Hobby entwickelt und ich habe in den Bereichen IT-Sicherheit (Netzwerk, IPv6, Verschlüsselung), Musik (E-Gitarre, Synth), oder sonstigen audio-visuell kreativen Bereichen (Zeitraffer, 3D-Fotografie) vieles getestet und gebastelt. Dabei habe ich oft auf Informationen aus dem Internet zugegriffen und möchte in diesem Blog meine Erfahrungen und Testergebnisse veröffentlichen, damit sie ebenfalls von Anderen weiterverwendet werden können. Beispielsweise beschäftigen sich einige Artikel mit “einfachen” Sicherheitsvorkehrungen am privaten PC. Ich möchte damit eine Brücke von meinem Studium der IT-Sicherheit (Theorie) zur direkten Anwendung beim Benutzer (Praxis) bauen.

Der Einfachheit halber schreibe ich manche Artikel auf Deutsch, während Beiträge im Bereich Netzwerk, etc. in Englisch verfasst sind, damit mehr Personen darauf zugreifen können. Zu beachten ist außerdem, dass dies mein privater Blog ist. Alle Artikel spiegeln meine persönlichen Meinungen/Empfehlungen wider und stehen nicht in Verbindung zu Firmen, für die ich arbeite.

About Me

enMy name is Johannes Weber and I am working as a network security expert. I studied IT-Security at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum in Germany (Master of Science). Beside my job I am playing a few instruments and doing several other technical projects. That is, I don’t lack at project ideas but on free time to achieve them. ;)

Finally I want to thank my creator Jesus Christ for giving me the ability to do all this stuff.

Neben meinem Beruf bastel ich an verschiedenen technischen Projekten und mache gerne Musik. Das Problem ist also eher die nicht vorhandene Zeit als ein Mangel an Ideen. ;)

Letztendlich möchte ich meinem Schöpfer Jesus Christus danken, dafür dass er mir die Fähigkeit gibt, dieses ganze Zeugs hier zu machen.

  2. Hi Johannes,

    Wonder have you tried mrtg monitoring Mcafee Firewall Enterprise S3002? Any sample template available for cfgmaker? Thanks!

  4. hi Weber
    I am a new IT teacher teaching networks and i was searching everywhere end to end working configuration for easy remote VPN access with ASA, as a start for my work and my understanding about VPN.

    After long hours searching , i found your config, and 20 minutes later …. it works !

    Thanks a lot.

  5. Hi,

    I would like to know how to configure Paloalto Firewall in HA and to manage that cluster from Panorama. I would appreciate if you can help with the process or steps to follow.


    1. Hi JP.

      Well, that’s quite general. ;) Have you already used the official Palo Alto Networks documentation? Or have you attended a training? They are quite good as well.
      TL;DR: Assign Mgmt-IP addresses to both units, build your HA cluster, add both of them to Panorama, add a template as well as a device group for them, and configure everything through Panorama now. DO NOT configure the HA settings nor the Mgmt-IP addresses in the template through Panorama! But everything else.


  6. Hi Johannes,
    I will like to thank you for sharing knowledge.
    You are doing a great and amazing Job.
    I always whish you all the best.

  7. Hey,
    I really like your Posts,
    is there any option to add an email subscription for every new post you’re adding?

    1. Hey Erez, yes, I have just re-enabled the widget on the right-hand side. I disabled it a couple of weeks ago because I got lots of SPAM subscribers. (Though you need to verify the subscription.)
      Thanks for reading my blog. ;)

  8. Hi Johannes,

    My name is Alan. I work as the ADS-B Network Manager for AirNav Systems (Radarbox.com).

    I was wondering if you could test and write an unbiased written review of our newly released Radarbox ADS-B FlightStick (USB Dongle) on your blog. You could even do a comparison with a competing ADS-B dongle and you can write in German if you wish – no problem. We can send you the FlightStick and antenna to carry out your test & review.

    Is this something you would be interested in doing? I look forward to hearing from you. My email address is – ajoseph@radarbox24.com

    Alan Joseph
