General chit chat with the group members about their current projects and problems. We talked about future goals and what we’ve got coming up. It was great to see the usual crowd as well as a couple new faces. If you have any specific interests in upcoming meeting topics please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rick ran through a Pi-hole demo for the group, showing us to implement a simple network level block for advertisements and trackers. Now you can explore the internet without the nuisance and distractions. If you’d like to follow along you can run through the notes that Rick provided as well some videos that he thinks you should check out!

Are you confused about nftables and iptables? So am i! Manuel walked us through some of the differences between the two toolsets and lead us through examples of how you could implement firewall rules using both of them. Included in the presentation are some code examples as well as additional sources for a nice long read in front of the fire this winter. Afterwords you can read up on UFW and explain to the group how it fits in.
