Finally a project walk: The digital RAS Cyclades PC400 is working, and it's working great. Carlos found a person who installed the card some time ago, so he called him, and then asked me to call him again; I did it, nothing new told with one exception: what Telmex tech support told is pure crap, copy the sample CAS for E1 config file, modify it with your values and that's it. Did it and it works, as magic, so simple... K I S S ... I thing the issue was the digits of the telephone number: I was sending 4 to the configuration as the Telmex tech support told me, but in the sample only was stated 3, changed it, make a phone call and I got it.
The portslave works very neat with the ICRadius.

Keep reading the Steppenwolf. Now I feel better with my loneliness and my misantropy, accepting my wolf nature. Yeap! only for insanes..
The load balancing is still incomplete, but Jose Luis helped to figure out a simple way to achive it: make the redirection in the cisco router, as well the nat, and the proxy will have tun0 as default gateway, making round-robin with the parent squid with a static route. The problem now is PCD and their Debian box.
Gotta buy the Band of Brothers, it would be the best Christmas gift for my dad, but I'll need to buy the DVD player too...
Paid my SHCP fee, called to Aurora (she'll be flying back to Barcelona by friday night), be called by Zendejas (asking me for the mrtg graphs and to remaind me about the CFE's payment), saved the world, stopped the starvation, made a woman happy... that was pretty much my day
