Messing around with MVS 3.8j

Messing around with MVS 3.8j

Installed Hercules on my server and downloaded MVS 3.8j TK4- OS/VS2 mainframe software and stared messing arround.

I hade a few challenges allong the way, apparently my FreeBSD server doesn't understand the variables in de hercules scripts. But after fixing that able to boot the mainframe.

Next challenge is to customize it a little, so have changed the system ID to DEVI, which means reformating the jes2 spool dasd.

And changing the logon screen which means adjusting the SYS2.CNTL(TK4-LOGO) assembly file and submitting it to rebuild and relink the NETSOL tool.


Stagering numbers, from January to August 2019, around the world, there were more than 518,223 cases of stalkerware precense detected. - https://securelist.com/the-state-of-stalkerware-in-2019/93634

DNS-over-HTTPS in the Pi-hole

1 min read

On the Raspberry pi install the dnss package

apt install dnss

Edit the settings to make it listsn on port 5053, normally it listens on 53

vi /etc/systemd/system/sockets.target.wants/dnss.socket

# Sockets for dnss.
# This lets dnss run unprivileged.
# We typically want one UDP and one TCP socket.



And restart the service, because the pi-hole is running starting probably failed right after installation, port 53 is in use

systemctl restart dnss.socket

In the Pi-hole admin web interface under settings find the tab DNS and adjust the upstream DNS Server to the dnss installation

Pi-Hole - Upstream DNS Servers

And we're good to go. dnss uses by default dns.google.com.
