comment Can see files on server but cannot open them- intermittent
Ask your IT department to visit Server Fault for assistance. There's little or nothing we can do for you since you won't have access to any necessary information to diagnose the problem.

comment Run wine totally headless
Well, yes, that starts up a GUI-based installer, so it will want a display.

comment Run wine totally headless
What exactly are you trying to run in wine? Most Windows programs require a GUI to be present.

Don't use old-style deprecated interface aliases. Configure them the current way instead.

You can't bridge to Wi-Fi. You'll have to use a routed or NAT network instead.

Something was wrong, then, because the font in your screenshot is definitely not monospace! :)

comment Make Linux Notebook Act Like a Network Hub
@armin You can't bridge Wi-Fi to Ethernet because the wireless access point will only talk to the MAC address (of the wireless NIC) that associated with it. It will consider the MAC address of the wired NIC invalid, since that address never associated and can't associate.

comment Disabling IPv6 DNS resolution on client only to a specific domain
Have you spoken to the helpdesk yet? I suspect that something else strange is going on that none of us have any idea about.

Have you got IPv6 at home? Does the company have it at work?

comment Too many Tunnel Adapter Interfaces
Disabling IPv6 does not fix anything, but it does break the Internet.

comment Access my home network printer while I am using VPN to connect to work
@JulianKnight I never said anything about bridging a local network to the VPN. Doing that would be quite stupid.

comment Access my home network printer while I am using VPN to connect to work
There is not one LAN per computer. There is one LAN per network interface. So this should not be happening at all. You should still be able to reach machines on your home network; that you can't is an intentional decision by corporate IT and needs to be taken up with them.

comment How to force a Linux DHCP client to get a different IP address
You can't. The server decides what IP address you will get.

comment How can I prevent Cisco Anyconnect, client-side, from setting any IPv6 routes?
If your VPN is set to route all traffic via the VPN, this is probably intentional. It prevents leakage via IPv6 over your direct connection. If your VPN is meant to route only traffic for your company's network, then this is a problem that the admin on the remote end should fix.

@fixer1234 If you can operate a screwdriver and you have good fine motor control in your fingers, then tightening up a loose ribbon cable is easy. You might to make a full answer out of that.

comment Network adapter issue (ONLY at university) - no networks available
Have you spoken to your university's IT helpdesk? It may be that their network is broken, or it needs some unique configuration that none of us outside the university would possibly know.
