Juniper Netscreen ScreenOS Dial-in VPN config with DD-WRT client using vpnc

"route-based dialup VPN (dynamic peer) with shared IKE ID" works just

How to add MIBs to the net-snmp package

    (rather than having to use the numeric OIDs)
  • it allows the results to be displayed in a more immediately meaningful fashion. Not just giving the object names, but also showing named enumeration values, and interpreting table indexes properly (particularly for string and OID index values).

AjaXplorer install with Drupal CMS Bridge

This is the bridge between a Drupal installation and an AjaXplorer. The aim is to provide a single-signon mechanism based on the Drupal users system : users logged in Drupal must have access to repositories of AjaXplorer. It's never totally evident to interface two different softwares, so don't expect it to be magical, and please follow the steps carefully and in this order.

1/ Base Installation

1.1 Install AjaXplorer and Drupal
First of all, make sure you have AjaXplorer 4.0.1 installed and Drupal 6.x or 7.x
