comment Is there any tail like tool supporting WebDav
Your Welcome. But Zsync would require Range headers to be supported on the server side. I have updated my post to highlight this..

+1. Good question. I am working on a way to quickly sync files across WebDAV to the client system and looking into zsync. I have provided a high-level solution below for your requirement.

comment How does a machine determine its host name?
Thanks Kwaio. I am looking into gethostname() now. This is quite informative and is exactly the direction I was hoping this discussion to take.

comment How does a machine determine its host name?
@mpy - My bad.. I didn't want to use the actual IPs and server names I work with. I missed to mask the server name. I corrected it above. Would you be so kind to delete the above comment for the same reason. Looking forward to your inputs. Thank you!

comment Hex to base64 on *nix
Thanks @Kent ! okay. But then shouldn't this work too..? echo "obase=64; ibase=16; 5C78336D77D8DF448007D277DAD5C569" # Tell bc to accept the input ASCII string as a Hex representation and convert it into base64.

comment Hex to base64 on *nix
@Ramhound - Thanks. I tried echo "obase=10; ibase=16; cat in.dat`" | bc | base64 > out.dat` and echo "obase=64; ibase=16; cat in.dat`" | bc`. Could you give me some pointers where I am going wrong..?

Thanks for the explanation! Yes I have setup a bind account just for that.. so the application uses it to bind with LDAP server and validate the credentials.

Hi @Zoredache - I updated the question.. I am working with MSAD. I thought that possibly all LDAP directory service providers used a common scheme for storing/managing user account credentials.

comment How can I estimate the number of feasible mappings for a NAT router..?
Okay.. But even if ample CPU/RAM were provided, would a software NAT be able to create more than 65K+ IP:Port mappings..?

comment Why has this organization reserved a public address space when they are being used in a private network?
I guess the solution followed by this organization is not a 'best practice' and so was too specific to be helpful to the general audience. I guess that's why this question has been closed, but the below discuss has partially answered by question so its cool. Thanks!

comment Why has this organization reserved a public address space when they are being used in a private network?
Thanks @Hennes - so basically they won't have to worry about making a host a edge as it already has a Public IP and NAT along with the firewall hides the rest of the host and possibly prevents all inbound connections initiated by host outside the network.

comment How can I estimate the number of feasible mappings for a NAT router..?
Thanks @DavidSpillett. But I didn't get how a software NAT solution is limited by space available in the RAM for storing the NAT table and not by the usable number of ports on the device performing NAT..?

Thanks @Jason - but since this organization has already leased a large set of Public IPs, I am trying to figure out why it is more convenient to do so even though there is a burden of cost..?
