Launched in 2004, dmesgd aims to provide a user-submitted repository of searchable *BSD dmesgs. The dmesg(8) command displays the system message buffer's content, and during boot a copy is saved to /var/run/dmesg.boot. This buffer contains the operating system release, name and version, a list of devices identified, plus a whole host of other useful information. We hope others find this resource useful and further contribute to its growth. Contact us at [ admin at lists dot nycbug dot org ].

Description: This was originally a Team Internet firewall appliance that ran Linux. Being a geek I ripped the lid off and looked inside at what seemed like a pretty standard ATX PC mainboard. I prepared a hard disk on another machine, configured to accept logins via the serial ports (although a keyboard connector is fitted, there`s no hole for it in the case). Oddly I had to fit a display adaptor for the box to boot (I`m guessing this might be fixable by editing the CMOS settings, awkward without a keyboard). The box has USB ports, but I never used or configured them. The machine serves as an email and SFTP server, as well as being a gateway for me to tunnel VNC connections in from the outside world through SSH.
