As you know, DDoS attacks are pretty popular nowadays. Generally, we use services like Cloudflare to protect against them as these services absorb malicious traffic. But even additional protection mechanisms (e.g., “I’m Under Attack” mode combined with a white list in Cloudflare) will not help, if you disclose your IP […]

r/docker has given great feedback multiple times about Blimp, a cloud/SaaS Docker Compose product that I’m working on to scale heavy containers to the cloud during development.

I am studying deploying small clusters to lots of edge sites. Think 1000 sites each with 3 lightweight nodes. They are all running pretty much the same application and should be able to keep running without a connection (so control plane is also on the edge sites) On a site […]

If I connect through “concisions/windscribe-socks-server” docker container I can use windscribe. But if I am using a simple debian or ubuntu container and I normally install the client, I can’t use windscribe, because it tells me: Error running Login when I entry the credentials. And those are the correct credentials, […]

The purpose is that I don’t want to make all the system to be under the VPN, but I want just to connect via socks to a docker container that has Windscribe in it. I am using this docker: If I connect through socks to this container that has […]
