comment Remote Desktop Connection: Don't connect to console
You want to connect via RDP to a computer from the same computer? That makes no sense. If you're talking about connecting to a desktop OS (Windows Vista, Windows 7, etc.) then yes you'll connect to the console. Desktop OS's don't support multiple concurrent RDP sessions.

What do you mean they're blocking port 25? Are you trying to connect inbound or outbound to port 25?

comment Why unconnected network card periodically sends DHCP requests?
I don't see how what you're describing is possible. The disconnected network card has no network connectivity to the physical network. It shouldn't be possible for it to communicate in any way on the network. Something else is going on.

comment Disable remote ftp in OS X but allow ftp from localhost
If you don't want to allow remote FTP connections why would you allow it inbound through your firewall? Wouldn't that be the best solution, regardless of the settings in the OS?

Don't allow FTP through your network firewall. Done.

comment external domain controller for multiple LAN merging
No, I'm saying your firewall will do that for you. Your firewall tracks all sessions and maintains the state of those sessions in it's session/state table. So when client 1 connects to the DC the firewall will "register" that session in it's session/state table. When client 2 connects to the DC that connection is maintained in another entry in the session/state table of the firewall.

comment external domain controller for multiple LAN merging
Just as a web server doesn't need to distinguish between internal clients if you had two computers connecting to the same website, the Domain Controller doesn't need to distinguish between internal clients. Your firewall will do that in it's session/state table.

comment Reverse DNS Zone not working properly BIND9
This isn't a problem with your reverse lookup zone, it's a problem with your forward lookup zone. Reverse lookup zones resolve ip addresses to names. Forward lookup zones resolve names to ip addresses.

comment Find MAC address of laptop of stolen laptop
IDK but if it did, that's as far as it would go. It wouldn't go beyond the first router his traffic passes through.

comment Find MAC address of laptop of stolen laptop
MAC addresses are globally unique, but only locally significant. The MAC address of your laptop isn't seen or known outside of the local network it is attached to.
