DrayTek Vigor 3900/2960 - WAN-WAN transit over WAN2

DrayTek Vigor 3900/2960 - WAN-WAN transit over WAN2

When you are setting two sites, one as a redundant site for failover, in a datacentre, it is important to configure all of your external interfaces properly. Recommended settings for this are that you have a separate subnet at each site so that data can be routed over the WAN as and when required, rather than a single subnet that sends and receives all packets over the WAN unknowingly. In this example we are going to have two subnets:

The primary site where the live system is housed. The system has two WANs - to the internet and to the redundant subnet

The secondary (redundant) site which has two WANs also - to the internet and to the primary site.

DrayTek Routing to Subnet

So we must connect the two subnets via WAN2 on our two routers, in this case a DrayTek 3900 for the primary site, and a DrayTek 2960 for the redundant site.

So on the DrayTek Vigors, we will set the WAN2 to be both in the same subnet, so that they have their own small LAN for comms. In this example we will set them to be & 2 with a subnet of ./24 so taht they can ping each other easily. Then we set the gateway of each WAN2 to be the other WAN2 IP. So taht the forst router will have an IP of with gateway

This should give us a direct link from one router to the other.

01785 463 178 BT Fake Calls - you are going to be disconnected, press 1

01785 463 178 BT Fake Calls - you are going to be disconnected, press 1

We have been receiving reports of suspect phone calls, allegedly from BT stating that the service is about to be shut down and to please press 1 for details.

Now we have not taken the plunge of actually pressing 1 to speak to someone but can report that the 1471 lookup gives a number of 01785463178 which will not receive calls 'the number you have called is not recognised' which seems odd as it is the BT service that gives the number in the first place and so it should be correct.

These calls are being received by people who are on the BT 152 call protect privacy service which seems strange as you would think that the numbers would be protected.

Either way none of the customers of BT being contacted have had their service removed and so this is obviously a scam.

If we intercept a call we will try speaking to someone to find out what they are trying to extract from people and report back.

This email is disingenuous from start to finish, as befits these people.

Of course there is no meeting and they have no idea of your name, they just extracted the text field from your email address, but let us have a look at the email and site anyway as these people do need to be publicly 'outed' or they will continue to prey on the weak and poor...

Now we have no idea what the website is supposed to be but the owner is registered at:

Which doesn't help much.

Either way the website doesn't seem to function at it's route - it just shows the apache hello message.

But at the link above, it shows our friends:


Now I don't know who that person is or how they got this way so young but that definitely looks like their parents house to me, I wouldn't buy that lamp now, never mind at that age. 

As usual, if you try and leave you get a message saying:

You're A Winner - The National Lottery - Winning Notification Letter 2018-dispatched Spam

You're A Winner - The National Lottery - Winning Notification Letter 2018-dispatched Spam

Occassionally there is a spam email circulating that really makes you giggle, and here is a perfect example. Not only is this email sent to a generic email address - in this case a support@ address.

The message has only one piece of text and a PDF. The text reads:

'This message was sent to name@domain.local. If you are not the owner of this email and you receive this message. Please discard the letter.'



I don't know who is, but I suspect he will not be receiving that many emails and the phone number appears to have been left off of the hook.

I'm really not sure what the purpose of this email is unless the phone number and email are just of someone that the originator doesn't like.

The best part by far though, is that the promotion director happens to be Annie Lennox acting in the role in her spare time.

Thie email has the feeling of someone playing a prank rather than trying to steal, and for that, it definitely received the 'Spam of the Month' award!
