Installing OpenBSD 6.7 on a PC Engines APU2

If you're interested in the PC Engines APU2 line and what the differences are between models, I've covered it in a previous post here. I recently purchased a new PC Engines APU2E4 to use as a home router. I purchased the kit, which includes the board, case, and power supply from CorpShadow. I also ordered the DB9F to USB adapter (Silicon Labs CP2104), so I don't need to get a separate null modem connector.

How To Stop mg From Littering

If you've been an OpenBSD user for any period of time, you probably know what mg is. For those who don't know, mg stands for MicroGnuEmacs. It's a small clone of Emacs maintained by the OpenBSD team that's included with the base system. Being an Emacs user, I love that mg is part of the OpenBSD base system. It's great to have an editor that has familiar keybinds on a system that I haven't had the time to install any packages on.

Let's Encrypt on OpenBSD 6.7

So I have an OpenBSD server serving a static website using httpd(8). I've been thinking for a while I should add an SSL certificate, but never got around to it because it was just a small hobby website and it didn't require any real attention. Today while watching one of the OpenBSD tutorials at BSDCan, I thought it was finally time. Since configuring everything else in OpenBSD is so easy, this must be easy too, right?

Issues with OpenVPN on OpenBSD 6.7

EDIT: (August 22, 2020) Theo Buehler has kindly reached out to me and informed me that this issue has just been fixed in a syspatch, and that OpenVPN now works correctly. Hi. Regarding, the issue you describe in this post should be fixed in 6.7-stable. It boils down to this: ProtonVPN appears to require clients to use P-521 for the TLSv1.3 key exchange. Released versions of OpenVPN do not permit customizing the curve to use for the key exchange (they added a –tls-groups option in their dev branch).
