comment OpenVPN client tun device name in OSX
Tunnelblick includes several scripts that get called after a VPN is established. They are what handles the DHCP. The OpenVPN binary itself doesn't do anything with the DHCP settings. You should take some time and review the Tunnelblick scripts. Or to say it differently, you are expecting OpenVPN to do things that it doesn't handle.

comment Port Forwarding with the real IP-address
I can't tell what you are doing here. There are networks reserved for documentation. Please use them instead of making up random numbers. rfc5737 192.0.2.0/24 (TEST-NET-1), 198.51.100.0/24 (TEST-NET-2), and 203.0.113.0/24 (TEST-NET-3), or use private address space, and give us some clear descriptions.

@barlop, All the matter in the universe is composed of chemicals. So your second sentence doesn't convey useful information. If you had said may contain harmful chemicals, or materials you would have been fine.

comment Where is the CMOS setup utility stored?
Probably, it all depends on the firmware. They all seem to label things differently.

Resetting usually means using a feature of the BIOS software to clear any saved settings, and going back to the default values for everything.

comment I need to connect two USB cables but upon peeling them i have come across wires of totally different colour schemes, how to connect them?
Open up the joystick and look how things are connected inside it. The VCC/GND lines should be easy to figure out, the D+/D- will be trickier.

Why the downvote? This answer is perfectly valid, and probably the best, if you want do this safely. Randomly guessing about a poor color scheme will get you fried equipment.

comment How to convert Putty registry entry to known_hosts format?
It probably would be a lot easier to just use ssh-keyscan on your *nix box to generate a know known_hosts file. But +1 anyway. I suspect converting it would probably involve taking the base16 value from the registry and converting to to base64, which seems to be the format in known_hosts. But there must be some other changes required also.

comment 2 Acces Points on the same Home Network, problems with Wi-Fi Roaming
I am not a android user, but, the first hit I found in Google for android wifi scanner. play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=edu.smu.wispy&hl=en looked promising. There are almost certainly other similar apps. You want to make sure both APs are visible, and both are using the exactly identical encryption options.

comment 2 Acces Points on the same Home Network, problems with Wi-Fi Roaming
No, it doesn't. I have 16 APs in my office, zero of them are running DHCP. No half-way decent AP requires DHCP to be running. I have no DHCP running on my APs at home, netgear & linksys. DHCP simply is unrelated to the proper functioning of an access point from the layer2 perspective. In any case, solving the problem is your hands. My suggestion is to use more advanced tools to diagnose the problem. If you don't want to, thats fine. If you don't know how, please say that.

comment 2 Acces Points on the same Home Network, problems with Wi-Fi Roaming
That doesn't make any sense though. Disabling/Enabling DHCP should have nothing to do with the radio functioning or not. Which is why I suggested an wireless scanner. I think you should find out if the AP actually stops broadcasting if you disable DHCP. Since the behavior you have describe is unlikely, from my experience, I think you need to use better tools to diagnose this beyond simply attempting to connect with a client. I would also be probably running wireshark/tcpdump on one of your clients to see if you see anything unusual.

comment 2 Acces Points on the same Home Network, problems with Wi-Fi Roaming
Are you sure you have the Security settings exactly the same on both APs? You can't have WPA on one, and WPA2 on another. Maybe try a simple test. If you turn the APs off one at a time, can you see each AP from your clients? If you run a wifi scanner can you see both APs? Does the scanner see them both using the same settings?

@Ramhound, it doesn't always encrypt free space. You can choose to skip that during the setup.

comment Where is target folder on USB booted Debian?
That seems extremely unlikely, if your USB drive has some form of Linux on it. Then download and use a better livecd. I am a big fan of sysresccd.org
