2017-08-11 22:34:10 hexagon @pints how do we have 6 firewalls? That makes no sense?!
2017-08-11 22:34:49 pints   All but 2 are in boxes
2017-08-11 22:34:50 pints   :)
2017-08-11 22:35:00 pints   And yes it does >.>
2017-08-11 22:35:42 pints   We've 2 networks, each gets its own firewall between it and the rest of the world
2017-08-11 22:36:08 hexagon How are the firewalls in boxes?
2017-08-11 22:36:33 pints   Cardboard boxes
2017-08-11 22:36:39 pints   Like
2017-08-11 22:36:45 pints   We haven't opened them
2017-08-11 22:36:59 hexagon Wtf?

2017-08-11 22:37:39 pints   They're a physical piece of hardware
2017-08-11 22:37:45 pints   They came to us in boxes
2017-08-11 22:37:53 pints   They have not yet left the boxes
2017-08-11 22:38:17 hexagon And they have firewall installed?
2017-08-11 22:38:23 hexagon What sort of firewall?
2017-08-11 22:38:44 pints   Em
2017-08-11 22:38:45 pints   Ok
2017-08-11 22:38:51 pints   Let's step back a sec
2017-08-11 22:38:59 pints   What does the word firewall mean to you :P
2017-08-11 22:39:33 hexagon Why is it sold in cardboard boxes?
2017-08-11 22:40:01 pints   https://www.juniper.net/uk/en/products-services/security/srx-series/srx220/
2017-08-11 22:40:07 pints   They're these things

2017-08-11 22:44:59 akraak  rip
2017-08-11 22:46:36 hexagon How much are they worth?
2017-08-11 22:46:45 pints   ~1200 each
2017-08-11 22:46:52 pints   We got them free from Juniper
2017-08-11 22:47:04 hexagon Are they servers with firewall installed?
2017-08-11 22:47:09 pints   Mmkay
2017-08-11 22:47:19 pints   They *are* a firewall
2017-08-11 22:50:43 hexagon ....
2017-08-11 22:50:52 hexagon I'm so confused rn
2017-08-11 22:51:20 pints   Again
2017-08-11 22:51:25 pints   Let's step back here
2017-08-11 22:51:39 pints   What does 'firewall' mean to you when you hear it
2017-08-11 22:52:26 hexagon It's a wall that stops fire
2017-08-11 22:52:42 pints   ...oh god
2017-08-11 22:53:13 hexagon I'm joking :joy:
2017-08-11 22:54:05 greenday    I think it is just news to hexagon that there are hardware firewalls as well as software ones
2017-08-11 22:54:25 pints   ...why didn't my /kick work >.>
2017-08-11 22:54:52 pints   @hexagon I swear to god that conversation nearly killed me
2017-08-11 22:56:25 pints                  _

2017-08-11 22:56:47 pints   So whilst we're here
2017-08-11 22:56:59 pints   @hexagon, what's a firewall?
2017-08-11 22:57:13 akraak  how do they keep them in cardboard boxes, wouldnt they light on fire?
2017-08-11 22:57:24 pints   No no no they STOP the fire, silly!
2017-08-11 22:57:49 akraak  but what if your'e fighting fire with fire
2017-08-11 22:58:10 pints   /u/fireguy12 would approve
2017-08-11 22:58:18 greenday    how cool would our rack be if there was a wall on fire always racked
2017-08-11 22:58:23 greenday    rip our colling though
2017-08-11 22:58:31 hexagon What's a hardware firewall?
2017-08-11 22:58:35 pints   ...........
2017-08-11 22:58:39 pints   HERE WE GO AGAIN
2017-08-11 22:58:40 greenday    .....................................................
2017-08-11 22:58:45 pints   HOLD ON TO YOUR BUTTS FOLKS
2017-08-11 22:58:54 greenday    Its about to get
2017-08-11 22:58:57 greenday    >.>
2017-08-11 22:59:01 greenday    <.<
2017-08-11 22:59:05 greenday    smokey
2017-08-11 22:59:15 akraak  s m o k e y
2017-08-11 22:59:33 pints   v  a  p  o  r  w  a  l  l
2017-08-11 22:59:51 pints   Seriosuly though did we not just have that conversation
2017-08-11 22:59:56 hexagon So no rn I don't give my permission :joy:
2017-08-11 23:00:01 pints   Lol too
2017-08-11 23:00:03 pints   late*
2017-08-11 23:00:06 pints   :)
2017-08-11 23:00:15 greenday    we emailed the firewal jsut ther
2017-08-11 23:00:17 greenday    there
2017-08-11 23:00:22 greenday    firewall
2017-08-11 23:00:31 greenday    send first read later
2017-08-11 23:00:36 greenday    that is my motto
2017-08-11 23:00:44 pints   A hardware firewall looks like a switch, and does the same job as a firewall program on your PC might, only way better and way faster
2017-08-11 23:00:47 pints   Because hardware
2017-08-11 23:01:14 greenday    But you can set your own rules and shit like software
2017-08-11 23:01:21 greenday    on the hardwaare
2017-08-11 23:02:09 pints   hexagon: how's that
2017-08-11 23:02:55 pints   *pints*' blood pressure continues to rise
2017-08-11 23:03:27 hexagon I'm drinking rn but if we have 6 of them then sure why not
2017-08-11 23:03:34 hexagon But otherwise let's review
2017-08-11 23:03:50 pints   Yes
2017-08-11 23:03:52 pints   Let's
2017-08-11 23:05:06 hexagon :+1:
2017-08-11 23:05:17 pints   So
2017-08-11 23:05:20 pints   In review
2017-08-11 23:05:46 pints   It's a metal rectangle, full of magic, that keeps all the bad internets out, and all of our good internets in
2017-08-11 23:05:57 pints   And they come IN BOXES
2017-08-11 23:06:27 pints   :convictparrot: :convictparrot: :convictparrot:
