“Sensitive to security concerns that did not exist, and yet no access to the server.
This Freelancer warrants the quality of their work by personal validation and attention to detail; where this is not possible results may be other than satisfactory. Client hired a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) capable of delivering, but chose to not trust the Freelancer. A hired hand cannot paint your house when they are not even allowed on your front lawn - probably won't work.”
Freelancer Feedback Comments for Client:
“A freelancer knows when they take a job for $25 that it will either work out perfectly, or turn into an absolute nightmare. I forewarned this client ahead of hire that we need to be on the same page. Once hired, I was told I would not have access to the server and had to provide a fail2ban REGEX rule to prevent Asterisk abuse. I have done this before and currently run several Asterisk PBX''s in production with fail2ban. I quickly provided the needed REGEX and days later was told it did not work. Again I asked for access to the server, or alternatively provide me just the fail2ban configuration files to test on a development server. I was told the fail2ban configuration held too much confidential data and could not be shared. A development server was not provided either. The job was at a standstill; the client decided to pay and leave negative feedback. For all I know, the REGEX provided is working just fine, since I have validated it does indeed work perfectly on a same Operating System server running same versions of fail2ban and Asterisk. It''s simply absurd and asinine to want work done but not allow any access, cite security concerns when speaking to a Certified Information Systems Security Professional, and then provide negative feedback while admitting there was no confidential data in the fail2ban configuration files. Please beware of this client - not a recommended working relationship unless you are a masochist. Again, thumbs down on this client. Stay away and don''t do business. You have been warned.”
