Three aggravations

| FreeBSD | 0 Comments

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?
