If I could have things my way, there are three main frustrations related to my FreeBSD computer hobby activities that I would like to resolve, namely the following:
- Being able to print to my old-fashioned HP DeskJet 720C using the apsfilter utility. For some reason printing to a remote network printer works just fine but not locally via my printer port lpt0, as well as under good old Windows XP.
- Getting Asterisk configured so that it connects alright to the TDM400 telephony card I installed from Digium and connected to a Dect telephone.
- Configuring the Nagios host and service monitor to run correctly on my server and trigger me when something unusual is detected.
In the last year or so I have been working on and off trying to get these fixed but to no avail.
My life would become much less stressful and a hundred times more enjoyable if these issues could be reconciled in the not so distant future.
What are the chances of getting that to happen?
