comment SSH alternative for a long range/high latency connection
Why wouldn't it make sense? What part of it? I've implemented this exact thing many times for access to poorly-connected systems with great success.

comment Is it possible to use one WAN for upload only and one WAN for download only?
It's worth noting that these are not making routing decisions based on upload/download. Unless there's some sort of magic involved, they're making policy-based routing decisions based on the target (or source) IP address.

comment Windows caches 403 machine-wide?
Hint: look into your antivirus/antimalware software (if you have some running). I've seen those throw HTTP errors if their web filtering component goes awry (which would also be solved via a reboot).

Sounds like a fun problem for you to track down. :)

If tcpdump on the server doesn't show anything, then something in between is modifying your traffic.

tcpdump runs just fine via ssh.

Perform a packet capture at the client and at the server (and possible along the network path somewhere as well) to see where it's coming from.

By definition, the 403 error you're receiving must be sent by a webserver. It's not an error your browser can just gin up on its own.

comment Pointing domain to OS X Server
Three reasons: 1) For many reasons, OSX is not considered to be an appropriate server platform 2) It does not appear that you've done more than the tiniest bit of research on your own. 3) "I need it for free" is not indicative of a business environment.

comment Windows XP on a network, security concerns?
Why not just install Linux on bare metal? Or at the very least, export the VM, install Linux, then import the VM into virtualbox or the like.

comment Route existing network connections to new location?
Don't even bother with fiber for such a short run. Just get another switch and uplink the two together with copper.

comment Setup sshd to start at boot on OSX El Capitan
Reason #1519485 why OSX is a very sub-optimal server operating system. (and that's coming from a guy that has used OSX as his primary workstation OS for 6 years).

comment How do I troubleshoot intermittent public static IP connectivity to a VM?
Why not just use port forwarding on the router to accomplish this? It's unlikely that your router is set up to deal with the situation you're trying to shoehorn it into.

comment Some network devices getting incorrect address range
If you can't "see" outside of your subnet, then you do not have internet access. Your assumption that you should not be able to "see" these devices is incorrect.

comment Some network devices getting incorrect address range
Wait, you scanned outside your LAN subnet and saw other devices outside of your subnet. Why is that surprising to you?

comment Some network devices getting incorrect address range
Well, if your router is permitting DHCP from outside your network, you have big problems.

comment Work Network Admin refuses to give me a 2nd IP address so I have to add extra router
That's right, because we have respect for policies that are implemented at our employers. For those policies that are non-optimal, there are constructive ways to deal with them so that everyone is on-board. Your IT guy is employed to support what you need. If that person isn't giving you that, go up the food chain and try to convince someone in management.

@Thanasis You should know that projects like this are generally called "rogue IT". They are the reason that policies like you're experiencing are put in place. Even if everyone involved in the rogue IT project has good intentions, there are very real ramifications in terms of security, intellectual property, productivity, and network availability. Give up on your plan, please, and work with your IT department, not against them.
