comment Re-assign IP address for VMWare image that is already running
Vmware Player/Workstation runs a DHCP server. The range/scope that is provided is generated at installation time, and the installers will choose ranges somewhat randomly from the private networks, that will not conflict with your current network addressing. You can change the network configuration by opening the VMware Virtual Network Editor tool.

comment Windows server 2012 R2 RDP auto login users are disconnected
Is it 2012R2 or 2008R2? Your tags conflict. Why do you have to login restart your VMs? What hypervisor are you using? Use Hyper-V, and VMs can be easily set to auto-start.

comment Why does Wake on Lan work over WAN but not LAN?
Oh, and I am running a 'GA-Z87X-UD5H' at home. I spent some time researching this related to that. As far as I have been able to find, you can only wake from S3.

comment How to clone a VM, without purchasing additional tool?
Just copy the vmdk file? Or, give up on ESXi, and switch over to Hyper-V, which is also free, and provides a lot more useful functionality at the base level.

comment Windows 7 doesn't see my 2TB partition created in Windows XP
Thanks for the update. I have no idea what, but I suspect some component on your Windows 7 system doesn't support large drives.

comment Windows 7 doesn't see my 2TB partition created in Windows XP
How is this drive attached to the system(s)? Are you dual booting, or is this a USB drive, or is USB dock or something? It might be interesting to get a screenshot added of what you see in Computer Management\Disk Management for the two systems.

Is a browser really the best way to access this page? Wouldn't curl/wget be better?

comment Is a Logging Facility similar to types of Windows Logs?
Syslog is not the same as Windows events. Trying to treat them as being the same will probably confuse you more, then if you just treat them as two separate things that have a somewhat similar purpose.

comment disable direct access to git repo
Right, so what you want to do then is create a bare repo, that you will treat as the official repo, then set permissions so people can clone/push/pull from it as fits your requirements.

comment disable direct access to git repo
It isn't entirely clear to me what you are doing here? Is this a bare repository? You can't really push to a non-bare repo, so?

comment Disk encryption stratagy
I don't lose my important passwords, I create multiple copies and put them in safe places. One copy goes in a sealed envelope in a fire-proof safe at my mom's house that only I have a key for. One copy is in a keypass data stored on my iPad, and one copy goes into my memory.

comment VPN with Encryption gives twice the download speed?
How are you testing your transfer? Many VPNs include data compression. If they content you are transferring as part of your test is compressible, then that would explain your results. OTOH, your ISP may have a poorly implemented bandwidth-limiter that isn't counting the VPN traffic.

comment Disk encryption stratagy
Truecrypt will work with Windows 8.1 if you use BIOS and not EFI to boot. This basically limits you to a 2TB system drive, and you don't get secure boot. Truecrypt can automount additional drives if you use the same password.
