Services needed

We currently could use:

  • Another auth server (Kerberos/LDAP slave) with a global v4 (preferably a physical machine)
  • Dedicated file server (Kerberized NFSv4? AFS?)
  • Stable replacement for (telnoratti is taking it over)
    • Could potentially use filebox2/3 for storage
  • Some sort of video conferencing - big blue button, SIP server, etc
  • Old services (see Project Bringing Sexy Back), e.g. gopher, finger, telnet BBS
  • Dtella node to mirror DEFCON talks, 29c3 talks, etc
    • Dtella test network to port IPv6
