Ok, so an earlier post sharing a really neat geek trick is awesome, but how the hell does one go about configuring a router to tweet something? (if you not a programmer)
To do it, you would need the following:
- IOS image that supports EEM.
- A twitter account.
- A base64 encoded representation of you twitter account’s
- Bruno’s twitter script. Download tweet-policy.tcl here.
- The IP address of your nearest twitter server. (nslookup or dig will help you there)
The IOS obviously must support EEM.
Then once you have your twitter account, you need to encode your twitter account’s username:password to a base64 encoded representation. Could be done using this website. Example:
twitter-username:tweet-password gives you dHdpdHRlci11c2VybmFtZTp0d2VldC1wYXNzd29yZA==
