[olug] Speaker Needed for March Meeting

No probs - I have had issues before with Gmail from my mail servers so 
figured I would check in.

PakSecured does not have any package management as it really is designed 
to be a dark room server (IE: headless/remotely/etc) for security 
systems. But I also run it as my desktop as you can compile Xorg etc on 
it. The reason I tell people that I will be coming from that perspective 
is that I have absolutely no clue if I am asked "what do I install for 
that" as the questioner typically needs to know "apt-gut slurp
{cool-n-fancy-thingeie} " as a response... Groove?

Insofar as the talk:

One idea - WireGuard & StrongSwan (IPSec) commandline and scripting
    Including how to lock down both using IPtables (not nftables yet)
    And setup virtual services on the server accessible only over the VPN

Another - Qemu+KVM from the command line NetWorking tips and tricks
    Mostly info/usage of {IP.Mac}v{lan,tap} and the pros/cons
    I use this extensively BUT I do not use containers at all

Can do both / mix / just blather incoherently...

Original text:
"I could discuss the advanced networking and security tricks for running 
multiple qemu-kvm guests on a single network interface from the command 
line. Pure command line, no libvirt etal. Also have extensive information 
on securing and routing "integrated" WireGuard and StrongSwan
VPNs - again also pure command line. Of course pure command line also 
includes bash scripts"

Yes I would like a "test" link as I need to see how it works with my 
desktop. I have FireFox running - Chrome blows up - lynx works great... 
And since I do not have or run any package management I cannot install 
anything that does not have source code...

Ah - heh - assume all I need is to use Jitsi-Meet in Firefox? OK - 
definitely would like a test link to see how to prep the presentation as 
if I can somehow show the command outputs from the shell it makes a lot 
more sense...
