I installed my RIPE ATLAS probe !

Today I installed on my home server a pretty cool nerd toy ! It is a network probe from RIPE ATLAS ! 🙂

Pretty easy to install device that gets power from the USB of your computer, and once plugged in the network it wants a IPv4 with DHCP.

RIPE ATLAS is the next generation active Internet measurement system from the RIPE NCC. It is currently in the prototype stage. It will scale up to thousands of measurement nodes (“probes”) distributed around the globe. You can read much more about all aspects of RIPE Atlas on RIPE Labs

So, here the log of the probe getting alive ! 🙂
