Shoshin (Black, Taylor, Ward)

Lab Manager

Hao Chen (h8chen)


The Shoshin lab manages their own infrastructure for the most part. They have their own subnet 129.97.105/24 which is routed by a Shoshin System "" (addresses and At the time of writing (2007-8-22) there is some confusion about appropriate names for these addresses (eg has address gw-flashnet, which is likely unnecessary).


Subnet 105 is routed via subnet 7 which is behind our firewall. Because Shoshin has their own firewall and manages it actively, we grant full permissions for all traffic in all zones to be propagated to them.


Shoshin runs its own DHCP zone for subnet 105. We have no interaction with this. There are a few addresses that have UW DNS names associated, but in general we have nothing to do with how that IP space is managed.


Shoshin has a number of servers in dc3556. They are the servers in the locked racks. One key opens all of the racks. There is a copy in the CSCF key safe.

Wiring infrastructure

The Shoshin lab has its own patch panels in dc3552a which are terminated in dc3556 (panels X and Y) in Rack 1). Roughly speaking, the topology is as follows.

  • an upstream feed from vlan 7 comes through Rack-1-panelA from dc3558. It feeds into the upstream NIC of the little (the vlan 105 router).
  • the vlan 105 downstream then returns from little to shoshin-sw-3 Rack1, where it is distributed to the other switches, servers in dc3556, and back to dc355a via panels X and Y.

The port labels on panels X and Y in dc3556 correspond to those in dc3552a.

Nabeel Ahmed's wireless AP in dc3552a

Nabeel has one of his APs deployed in the Shoshin lab. It is patched from one of the panel X ports through to dc3558. It does not interact with the Shoshin lab network.


Shoshin has an IP-addressable KVM (shoshin-kvm1.cs) connected to their systems in dc3556. The password is in the card file in the key vault.
