comment How to prefer ipv6 over ipv4 only for specific websites?
It might be useful if the IPv6 tunnel is especially bad, but that's probably not the case. He certainly didn't mention it.

comment NAT in local IPv4 to extern IPv6
If your ISP is providing IPv6 to you, then everything on your network should be getting IPv6 addresses, providing you have a compatible router. If you don't, then your first step should be to replace it.

comment Why does Win7 SP7 64-bit try to resolve DNS agsint IPv6 DNS Servers?
@FélixCantournet Yes, it's about the same thing. But it's always recommended to avoid the registry unless you know exactly what you're doing, because it's very easy to make a mistake and change more than you intended.

comment How to see my own domain from host server?
@Chipperyman Because it's off topic at SF. And, come to think of it, it's probably a duplicate of about 300 other questions at SU...

comment Using Small RAID5's to prevent data loss
RAID 5 is a terrible choice for this application, since you cannot be reasonably sure a rebuild will complete before a second drive fails due to the large drive capacities. Intentionally not having backups is also a terrible choice; the reasons should be obvious, since you have already suffered data loss from not having backups.

comment How do I convert an .img file to vhd?
@apple16 Yep, it's dead. Microsoft yanked it for some reason. Though copies can still be found with a careful web search, I think it best not to link to any such URLs as they may also change over time, and this one can also be fed to the Wayback Machine if necessary.

No. There is not. Asking the same thing over and over will not get you a different answer.

comment Setting the IP with dhcpcd
This is the way you do it in ISC DHCP. Though, you are still going to have to get the person who runs the server to do it for you.

You contact the person who does run the server.

comment Setting the IP with dhcpcd
You assign reserved IP addresses in the DHCP server, not the client.

comment Mirroring all router traffic (openwrt) to a snort sensor?
Hmm. I don't think you can mirror all traffic. This is, after all, a function of the hardware switch. So you won't get WLAN traffic, for instance, or traffic on virtual interfaces. Someone else in a similar situation may find this useful, though.
