30 Levels of NAT Lab #2 – Juniper SRX100s

Well, I had the chance again to play with lots of Firewalls, so I did. A customer had ordered > than 30 SRX100s for clustered branch deployments so I took the opportunity to ask for permission to pull 30 of them out of boxes and reproduce my 30 levels of NAT lab. It’s never the same doing it alone so I put the word out to some nerd mates and got Mr Aijay Adams (@aijayadams) and Master Mitch Hewes (@mitcdh) to tag along and enjoy the extremly draining NAT filled day. The day included unboxing, ‘racking’ and cabling, configuring and then packing it all up. It was a long day, especially since we tried to get routing instances to NAT 10 times on each SRX … We were not successful, it seems LT interfaces are not NAT friendly (which is good, cause it’s stupid and I hate NAT).

Here is the logical layout:

Of course, for good measure, a quick video of our fun 🙂

So we set the SRX’s up identically to the PIX501s

Nat Lab 2
(not as neat – Time didn’t allow that :))

The results were similiar to the Cisco’s latency wise, but throughput was what I really expected originally (before I did the Cisco NAT LAB), the SRX100s were able to achieve the full 100mbit through the 30 levels of NAT.

After getting the same level of NAT achieved as the Cisco lab we set out to better it, by using routing-instances and lt interfaces, but it seems NAT from an lt-* interfaces is not supported in Junos (all be it a stupid requirement, still handy to know). If someone can see what I did wrong in the config below I would love to know. We had to call it quits after many hours trying to get the routing-instances to work, but we were so close!
P.S. I know I could of used all the physicals, I did not have enough patch cables !

Here is a screenshot of a traceroute of out NATHELL

30 Levels of NAT Firewall Lab

So I am a very large geek, and proud of it. It hurt to walk past a cupboard at work knowing there was 30+ Cisco PIX 501 firewalls sitting in there collecting dust. One day it dawned on me, I wonder how crap internet would be sitting behind 30 of those slow ass god awful to use and configure firewalls. So here are the results:

Network Diagram

(Click for larger image)

Sample PIX 501 conf:

[plain]
hostname fwX
password cisco
enable password cisco
domain-name cooperlees.com

ip address inside 10.N.0.1 255.255.255.0
ip address outside 10.N1.0.2 255.255.255.0
interface ethernet0 auto
interface ethernet1 100full

route outside 0 0 10.N1.0.1
nat (inside) 1 10.N.0.0 255.255.255.0
global (outside) 1 interface

access-list outbound permit any any
access-group outbound in interface inside

access-list ping_acl permit icmp any any
access-group ping_acl in interface outside
[/plain]

Ubuntu iPhone 3.0 Bluetooth Tethering with uit.sh

If you would like to use your iPhone 3.0 with your bluetooth capable Ubuntu 9.04 PC then uit.sh (Ubuntu Iphone Thethering) is for you. This script installs all required conf, allows you to enable and disable your iphone tethering and even uninstall the conf if you no longer need it. I do expect NetworkManager to eventually support this out of the box.

Thanks to http://xn--9bi.net/2009/06/17/tether…o-ubuntu-9-04/ blog post which assisted me in knowning what configuration was needed.

Usage:
— Ubuntu iPhone Tethering (uit) Version 0.1 – Cooper Lees <me@cooperlees.com> —
Usage: ./uit.sh options
– This script will install, uninstall, enable and disable iPhone tethering with iPhone 3.0 Software.
– It has been tested on a upto date (patched) box as of 20090623.
– !! Be careful, this script will ask for your password to get root privledges to your system!

OPTIONS:
-h Show this message
-i Install required configuration
-u Uninstall required configuration
-c Connect Tethering
-d Disconnect Tethering
-m [] Set iPhone’s MAC Address (to /home/USERNAME/.uitrc)
-v Verbose

Install Guide:
