Darwin Streaming Server RPM for RHEL6

I wanted to run Darwin Streaming Server on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

I made binary RPMs for 64-bit RHEL6 using these instructions. My changes:

  • changed config path so that login to the Web Admin is possible

I've been using the EnGenius ECB9500 wireless access point quite a bit. It has a lot going for it: small in size, power-over-ethernet, low cost.

One thing that has been a thorn in my side is that up til now, SNMP monitoring has been difficult because the built-in firewall rejects packets that are not from the same subnet that the IP of the WAP is on. Naturally my monitoring lives in the server room which is on a different subnet.

local3.* /var/log/drupal.log
