WAN Load Balancing

We ran into an issue at work where we needed faster Internet (or more bandwidth,)…  The prices for our current ISP’s were higher than we had hoped for faster Internet, but we would like fail over as well as additional load balancing.  With teachers and students depending on the Internet so much we cannot afford not to have the Internet working well.  Our current provider’s downtime was unrealistically low (single digit hours a year) and we were VERY happy with the service.  Increasing our speed with that provider was not very cost beneficial compared to other providers.  So we started considering load balancing/fail-over with a second or third provider.

We investigated several commercial options as well as potential open source options.  We LOVE open source but something as critical as this we wouldn’t want to have to ever really troubleshoot.  We looked at solutions that were computers with specialty designed OS’s, as well as specialty hardware.

We had discussed deeply whether a standard computer hardware (with replaceable hardware) would be better than a hardware device designed to do what we wanted.  Ultimately we came to the conclusion that the software or features would make the decision.

We ended up going with a Ecessa Powerlink 600 which is a load balancer for both inbound and outbound connections,WAN fail-over, and Ecessa fail-over if two units are purchased.  We get the device setup with our current single 11Mb/11Mb fiber connection and were dieing to get more connections on the device.  A few weeks later we were able to get 100Mb/5Mb cable connection in and immediately saw the differences and how Ecessa was load balancing between the two connections.  Within the first week we had also had notices of our new cable modem dropping in and out however end user experience was not effected.

We were able to eventually load balance:

  • 11Mb down/11Mb up extremely reliable but expensive fiber connection
  • 50Mb down/50Mb up reliable wireless connection
  • 100Mb down/5Mb up least reliable cable connection

This provides us with a total usable bandwidth of 161Mb down/67Mb up, with the fastest potential download speed of 100Mb down, 50Mb up depending on the WAN interface you happen to fall on.  This also provides fail-over on any of the connections so that we can immediately fail-over to another connection without major interruption to end-users.

This link is also capable of load balancing incoming connections if set to an authoritative DNS server however we are currently not implementing that due to current network structure and time involved to implement that.  Although the time is not much, we are pressed to finish other projects right now.  That being said, we will be implementing this in the future.

I can say that installation was EXTREMELY easy with tech support.  Without the tech support the device would not be as straight forward as most would hope, advanced users ‘could’ struggle to get it setup.  We provided some simple information and they sent us a configuration file which was uploaded to the device.  They pretty well configured the device remotely and sent us the file.

We got it up and running and it has been running fantastic for over 100 days; even during ISP failures on our cable modem.  Our end users do not notice any issues when we fail-over.

When you setup Ecessa WAN links you type in the IP’s of 3 hosts to ping continuously.  When 2 of them fail the PL600 fails that link until they come back.  This ensures a good solid reliable connection for the end users.  We see out links during the day sporadically fail-over from time to time and have not had any complaints from end users.

During troubleshooting we can VERY easily see what WAN links are up and down, if there were problems, and what speeds are.  Screenshot - 01152013 - 09:30:12 PM

We have found the Powerlink Extremely effective and  HUGE cost savings.  In about 1 year the device will pay itself off compared to if we would purchase a very fast reliable Internet connection.  We are looking for a second to setup as a redundant fail-over in the years to come.

Linux Vinyl Plotting With A Gerber enVision Plotter

I recently had the opportunity to work with an older Gerber enVision plotter from a township.  I had major difficulties getting the old version of Omega working with their USB licensing stick, and I knew that getting anything like this working on Windows without proper licensing would be an inadvisable, and rocky road ahead.

I decided to look into open source solutions, and I found out that Inkscape can do vinyl plotting with an extension called InkCut.

This tutorial will attempt to comprehensively explain how I got this working.  I am by no means an expert, but I found very limited web resources out there on this topic, and I am hopeful that someone will eventually stumble on this article and find it useful.

A simple, free, and open source solution to an expensive and complex problem: How do we plot stuff with our vinyl plotter?

This tutorial will assume that you have some prior experience with the Linux terminal and the Linux desktop.  On my test computer, I was working with a clean installation of Ubuntu 12.04 (12.04.1) LTS.  However, any Ubuntu or Debian flavor should be acceptable.  I am also assuming you have an older Gerber enVision series plotter.  If this is not the case, I imagine most of these instructions will apply fairly well to any kind of vinyl plotter.

The Plotter
Here are some photos of the Gerber enVision plotter I was working with.

2013-01-01 13.20.33

2013-01-01 13.20.42


The plotter interfaced with the computer using a serial connection.

Ubuntu & This Plotter
In order to establish proper communications between the computer and the plotter, I had to ensure some things were true.  I reset my plotter to the factory default settings, which resulted in a condition where I could assume this about my serial connection:

Baud: 9600
Data Length: 8
Parity: None
Stop Bit: 1

In order to ensure communication with non-root users, I took a questionable approach, and I decided to:

chmod 777 /dev/ttyS0

This did not need to be a very secure environment (we didn’t even password protect the workstation’s desktop) so I figured this would be a reasonable approach, rather than troubleshooting why CUPS was getting permission denied errors while printing to the serial port.

Configure The Plotter In CUPS
To install this plotter in CUPS, you’ll want to open up your Printer configuration area from the System menu.

Click “Add” to add a printer.

CUPS Add A Printer

If you don’t have the option for “Serial Port #1”, then use the Device URI “serial:/dev/ttyS0“.

Serial Printer


You will want to select Generic as the make of printer.

Generic Printer


Then, select “Raw Queue”  This will work with InkCut providing the HPGL instructions.

Generic Printer - Raw Queue

Obviously, it doesn’t matter what you name your plotter, or what description you give it, just give it something that makes sense.

Finalize Printer Settings

Install Inkscape

Next, we want to install Inkscape.  You can do this from Apt on Ubuntu, as such:

sudo apt-get install inkscape

Once you’re done with the installation, start Inkscape for the first time.  This will create blank default configuration folders in your profile which are necessary for the next step.



Then, go ahead and close Inkscape, and move on to installing InkCut!

Install InkCut
You can download the latest version of InkCut from their website.  At the time of this writing, the version is 1.0, and can be found here.

Once you’ve downloaded InkCut, go ahead and extract the file using this command.  It will put the files right where they need to be for you!

tar -xzvf InkCut-1.0.tar.gz -C ~/.config/inkscape/extensions/

Now, when you start Inkscape, you should see InkCut on the Extensions menu, under Cutter/Plotter.


Screencast How-To’s
 I have also created some screencasts to explain how to set up the document for your plotter, as well as how to plot some basic text.

Document Setup – Screencast
(Download OGV)

Let’s Plot Some Text! – Screencast
(Download OGV)

Remember, when plotting your text, you need to make sure your objects are converted to paths, by highlighting your text and going to Path > Object To Path.  You also want to make sure your paths aren’t grouped, by right clicking each block of text and clicking Ungroup.

Then you should be good to go to Extensions > Cutter/Plotter > InkCut v1.0 and start plotting!

Installing Zimbra Collaboration Suite On Ubuntu 12.04

Zimbra Collaboration Suite is a fantastic email and collaboration solution made by VMware.   Zimbra is my email server solution of choice, because it’s very easy to setup, and the features you get are unmatched by other open source email solutions.  Ubuntu 12.04 is the current Ubuntu LTS, which will be supported for servers until 2017, so this is a great time to use it on a server you don’t want to have to take offline for frequent updates, like a mail server.

How is Zimbra different from SquirrelMail or RoundCube?
Popular open source solutions for webmail are SquirrelMail and RoundCube, which interface with an existing IMAP \ SMTP server to provide webmail access.  Zimbra is a fully integrated mail solution, which sets up a POP, IMAP, and SMTP server, and provides HTTP and\or HTTPS webmail out of the box.  Zimbra also provides a desktop AJAX, desktop HTML, and mobile HTML access option set.  No matter what device you’re on, you can access your webmail in a friendly way.

Other Features of Zimbra
Zimbra offers a number of other features, such as:

  • Address Book
  • Calendar
  • Tasks Management
  • File\Document Briefcase
  • File\Document\Folder Sharing
  • Incoming Email Filtering\Antivirus
  • Social Media Integration

You can look at the official list of features, and other information, on Zimbra’s website.  This is their page on the Open Source Edition.


Installing Zimbra Collaboration Suite 8.0.2 Open Source Edition on Ubuntu 12.04
If you’ve decided that you’d like to try Zimbra Collaboration Suite, let’s get on to the installation!

Install Dependencies
These packages will be necessary for Zimbra to be installed on your system.

sudo apt-get install netcat libidn11 libpcre3 libgmp3c2 libexpat1 libstdc++6 libperl5.14 sysstat sqlite3

Download Zimbra ZCS
At the time of this writing, you can use the link in the Code box below.  As this tutorial ages, and newer versions of Zimbra are released, you will want to go to the download page and get the latest link.

wget http://files2.zimbra.com/downloads/8.0.2_GA/zcs-8.0.2_GA_5569.UBUNTU12_64.20121210115059.tgz


Extract The Downloaded Archive

tar -zxvf zcs-8.0.2_GA_5569.UBUNTU12_64.20121210115059.tgz

Enter The Folder You Extracted

cd zcs-8.0.2_GA_5569.UBUNTU12_64.20121210115059

DNS Configuration
If your DNS was not setup properly, you might get an error like DNS Error resolving yourhostname.com.  There is an error which will follow regarding your MX configuration.  These errors are OK to ignore, as long as you’re not planning on using your hostname to send\receive email.  You can add properly configured domains later.

However, you do want to make sure this domain name can be resolved.  Put it in /etc/hosts for if necessary.  If you do not do this, you will encounter an error during the final setup stage.

Run The Installer


Press Y and hit enter to agree to the license agreement.



Now, if you installed all the dependencies at the start of this tutorial, you should have everything you need!



If you aren’t sure what you want to install, then just install the items as suggested.

zimbra-ldap – Yes
zimbra-logger – Yes
zimbra-mta – Yes
zimbra-snmp – Yes
zimbra-store – Yes
zimbra-apache – Yes
zimbra-spell  – Yes
zimbra-memcached – No
zimbra-proxy – No

When asked if you want to continue, press Y and hit enter to proceed with the installation.


The Zimbra installer will take care of extracting and installing the packages for you.  This part of the process might take some time, depending on the speed of your machine.


Configuration Menu
Go through all of the items on the configuration and make sure they are what you want.  I like to make sure these options are set:

Don’t stress out about the domain names too much, you can add additional domains to your email server later, very easily.

  • Common Configuration > Hostname\Ldap Master Host — Should be your server’s main domain, like mydomain.com.
  • Common Configuration > LDAP Admin Password — The administrative password for Zimbra’s LDAP Server.  Make it something you’ll remember if you ever think you’ll want to integrate anything with the built-in LDAP later.
  • LDAP > Domain To Create — Should be your server’s main domain, like mydomain.com.
  • LDAP > LDAP Root\Replication\Postfix\Amavis\Nginx\Bes Searcher Passwords — I like to change these too.
  • Zimbra Store > Admin User\Password — These will be used to login to the Zimbra Admin Area.
  • Zimbra Store > Spell Server URL — Make sure this is a web address that can be accessed, it will be used when people press Spell Check.
  • Zimbra Store > SMTP Host — Should be your server’s main domain, like mydomain.com.
  • Zimbra Store > Version Update Email Addresses — Should be an email address for an administrator.

When you’re satisfied with all of your settings, press “S” and hit enter to write your settings to the configuration file.   The default file location is fine.   Then press “A” and hit enter to apply your settings and start the server!

Zimbra will ask you to confirm the changes to your system.  Type “Yes” and hit enter.

Zimbra will now run through an installation procedure, which may take a few minutes, depending on the speed of your machine.

If all went well, Zimbra is now installed on your server.  If it didn’t, you will be given a log file location, where you can look and see what might have gone wrong.


Firewall Rules
Hopefully your server has, or is at least behind, a firewall solution.  If so, these are the ports you should definitely be unblocking for the proper use of your server.  These ports are assuming you’re running a default configuration, and you did not change your ports during the setup procedure.

Webmail: 80/tcp for standard access, 443/tcp for encrypted access.
Administration Console: 7071/tcp (can be blocked in the firewall if you only plan to do administration over VPN, locally, etc)
Aspell: 7780/tcp (Zimbra runs a spell check server on this custom port, which users will access when they press the Spell Check button on the web interface)
SMTP: 25/tcp for standard access, 465/tcp for encrypted access.
POP: 110/tcp for standard access, 995/tcp for encrypted access.
IMAP: 143/tcp for standard access, 993/tcp for encrypted access.


Accessing Your Zimbra Server
You can login to your Zimbra accounts for webmail access at your Zimbra server’s IP or DNS on the standard https port 443.  You can access your Administration Console over HTTPS using port 7071.

Point your web browser to http://your.zimbra.server.ip:7071/

Zimbra Admin Console

Once you’re logged in, your admin interface will look something like this.

Zimbra Admin 2

The Zimbra setup procedures in the web interface are very straightforward, and are up to you to play with on your own now that Zimbra is installed and working!

Installing Dragon Naturally Speaking 12 on Ubuntu 12.04 (Using PlayOnLinux)

After having very much difficulty installing Dragon Naturally Speaking 12 on Ubuntu 12.04 with the latest version of WINE (WINE 1.5.20) I decided to look again at the AppDB.  I found that Dragon Naturally Speaking had a Platinum rating for WINE 1.4, so I decided to give that version of WINE a try with PlayOnLinux, which I believe is a very effective tool for managing different WINE versions and profiles.

Obviously, PlayOnLinux is not a requirement for having WINE 1.4 installed on your machine.  You could install WINE yourself and obtain this version, but for the scope of this tutorial, we will be using PlayOnLinux to manage the installation.

Install PlayOnLinux
It will be to your benefit to grab the latest version of PlayOnLinux from their repository, as this will probably be more recent than the version in your distro’s repository.  This step is optional, but if you ignore it, you might not get the version of PlayOnLinux described in this procedure, and you might be missing new bugfixes and improvements.

sudo wget -q "http://deb.playonlinux.com/public.gpg" -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo wget http://deb.playonlinux.com/playonlinux_precise.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list
sudo apt-get update

Now, let’s install PlayOnLinux!

sudo apt-get install playonlinux

Install WINE 1.4 Inside PlayOnLinux
Go to the Tools menu, and select Manage WINE Versions.


Select WINE 1.4, and press the Right Arrow to install the version.


PlayOnLinux will download and install WINE 1.4 for you.


Once it’s installed, it will appear to the right.



Close out of the WINE installation screen.  Next, you’ll want to press the Install button in the PlayOnLinux window, to start installing a new Windows program.


Select “Install a new program in a new virtual drive.”


You can name your drive whatever you want.  I called mine “DragonNaturallySpeaking12”.


Go ahead and check “Use another version of WINE” and hit Next.  This will allow us to manually select which version of WINE we want to use.


If you have used PlayOnLinux for other things, you may have more than one version of WINE installed, and that’s OK.  We want to select 1.4.  If you don’t have this option, please go back to the beginning of the tutorial and make sure you’ve installed WINE 1.4 using the “Manage WINE Versions” option on the Tools menu.


Now, PlayOnLinux will set up your virtual drive for you.


Assuming you have the Dragon Naturally Speaking 12 DVD, which I did, you want to select “CD-ROM” as the place to install your program from.  As shown here.  Then, hit Next.


PlayOnLinux will do some steps to prepare for the installation.


After a moment or two, the Dragon Naturally Speaking installer will start.  As with any normal installer, click Next to begin.


Read the license agreement.  (Hah!)  Then check “I accept the terms in the license agreement” and press Next.


In the next window, you’ll want to substitute my filler information with your own.  The serial number for my Dragon Naturally Speaking 12 installation was on the back of the paper DVD holder that contained my installation disk.  Yours will probably be there as well.  Once you’ve filled in your information, go ahead and hit Next.


I chose to do a Typical/Complete installation.  I chose to leave the default location.  The location will not interfere with any other WINE programs, unless you didn’t create a brand new virtual drive.  If you did, then the default location should work just fine for you.  If you have no idea, just leave this screen how it is, and press Next.  (That will be fine for most cases.)


The installer will now copy some files.

I got this error message.  I ignored it and pressed OK.



I decided I didn’t want to have Dragon Naturally Speaking check for updates on its own, as I have no idea how those will be installed… and I am using my Dragon Naturally Speaking in a professional installation where I will not be the user.  I don’t want to put my end-user through a hostile upgrade experience later, I just assume update it myself down the road if necessary.

Once you’ve decided whether you want to risk the automated updates, hit Finish.


The installer created a .lnk file on my Ubuntu desktop, but I found that shortcut did not work, so I deleted it.  I created my shortcut using the PlayOnLinux shortcut maker.  You can find this by pressing the Configure button on top of your PlayOnLinux screen.

Select your virtual drive, and click the “Make a new shortcut from this virtual drive” button.


Find “natspeak.exe” and press Next.


Obviously, you can name your shortcut whatever you want.   I chose to name mine “Dragon Naturally Speaking 12”.


Close out of the shortcut maker when it’s finished, and you should now have a shortcut on your desktop to launch Dragon Naturally Speaking.  Go ahead and launch it.

On first run, I had to activate Dragon Naturally Speaking.  This process worked fine for me, so just press Activate Now.





Then, Dragon Naturally Speaking will fire up.  Everything looks like it’s working well so far.



I did encounter some minor issues with Dragon Naturally Speaking, but all in all, it worked well enough that I am comfortable deploying it.


Some Issues I Had:

The Sidebar.  I disabled the sidebar, because it seemed like every other time it launched, it caused the application to crash.

Where You Can Dictate.  It seemed like dictation into Linux programs didn’t work.  I could only dictate into DragonPad and Dragon Naturally Speaking itself.  Even other WINE programs, like Notepad, seemed out of reach of Dragon’s dictation power.


I was quite surprised that some of the features like “Search Google for ____” actually worked, and actually launched my native Mozilla Firefox application.   I did not have a huge amount of time to test the installation, but it will be going into production, so I’m sure if there are any other issues, I will find out about them.  If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask in the comments, and I will answer what I can.  Keep in mind, I did not install Dragon Naturally Speaking on my own laptop, and my work only had a single license.

The reason I created this tutorial was not as a comprehensive guide, but so that someone who is searching Google for these instructions can find something.  I was very disappointed at how little information I found on Dragon Naturally Speaking 12 with WINE.   I am by no means an expert, just someone who spent a little too much time trying to get this working (see my other two blog posts here and here)… I hope someone found this useful and that I saved someone some time!

Installing Dragon Naturally Speaking 12 Does Not Work With WINE 1.5.20

NOTE: This is NOT a how-to.  This was an effort to document the problems I ran into during installation.  This blog post did not end in a successful installation of Dragon Naturally Speaking 12 in WINE 1.5.20.

This post, like my previous one, also started as a How-to, until it didn’t work…  I did eventually get Dragon Naturally Speaking working, and that post will be coming shortly.  This post does not have instructions which work, but I will publish it anyway in the hopes that someone will find it on Google, and something I’ve written will be useful.

My Installation Experiences

After failing to get Dragon Naturally Speaking 12 working on Ubuntu 10.04, I decided to try it in Ubuntu 12.04 where I would have access to a more recent version of WINE.  I decided to grab the latest version of WINE from the PPA.

Install WINE 1.5 from the PPA

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine

Install Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 (Winetricks)

winetricks dotnet40

I was asked to download a file from Mediafire and put it in a location. Follow all on-screen instructions.

Dragon - 3 - Dotnet Error

The .NET Framework installer failed and produced error code HRESULT 0x80070643.  I found this bug report which led me to these other Winetricks.

When installing the other Winetricks, pay attention to their instructions, as some of them will have you download and run other scripts.  This is supposed to satisfy the missing .NET Framework requirements.

winetricks gecko
winetricks windowscodecs
winetricks ie7
winetricks msxml3
winetricks msxml4

Create a 32-bit WINE Prefix As described from this thread, I followed these steps.

export WINEARCH="win32"
export WINPREFIX="/home/folder/.wine"

Run Dragon Naturally Speaking Installer

wine setup.exe

Dragon - 1 - Install Starting

Dragon - 2 - License Agreement


I still got an error when executing the MSI installer…
