New project | new accommodation | half time

Day 30&31 30.04-01.05.2018 Monday&Tuesday


On Monday I’ve prepared the wireless access points for the new project. I’ve documented their specifications and installed them. Afterwards, my department manager showed me how to backup an exchange server and explained to me the things you’ll have to consider when doing so while your company is in operation. We also had to go to one site to create nat and ACLs rules on a router for the CCTV.

Since Giang and I weren’t happy with our accommodation, we’ve asked Intern Europe, if we could move into the house of our classmates, which had a few empty beds left. We wanted to move because where were a few problems with our house: many things were broken and there was mould in the bathroom as well as in our room. The living situation just wasn’t running well. The accommodation of our schoolmates was a lot better than ours so Intern Europe allowed us to move. We chose to move instantly, so we’ve grabbed our belongings as soon as we were allowed to. The only disadvantage resulting from the new housing situation is that I have to walk 50 – 55 minutes to get to work now instead of the former 15 minutes.

But it’s still worth it because I enjoy my spare time and being home much more now.

I have a room with more space to which I can retreat myself to relax and I can cook my meals. I can even store my food in the fridge now, which I couldn’t do in my old housing because there were to many people and not enough space.

On Tuesday my department manager and I accomplished the monthly maintenance tasks: to check the network and the server systems. Afterwards he showed me the exchange server again and checked if the backup (which we’ve started Monday) was finished. During the day we had a lot of trouble with the wireless voice telephones. Afterwards we were analyzing some traffic and created firewall rules for it. We also had to troubleshoot many things for CCTV. The pat and nat rules really gave me a headache because I had to apply so many of them.
