comment samba sync password with unix password on debian wheezy
The passwords are stored within the databases in /var/lib/samba/, I believe passwords are in secrets.tdb but I am not certain. As for your former question, I doubt there is an easy way.

comment How to configure a large mtu (linux)
The MTU must be changed on all devices on your network, not just your workstation. This means you have to configure your router, switches, and everything else. If one device doesn't support a larger MTU, then you either have to replace the device, or accept a lower mtu.

comment Remove localhost?
@JamesK, on my OSX box, I can run sudo ifconfig lo0 0.0.0.0, and the loopback goes away, but I can still ping other things. It is a pretty silly thing to do though. AFAIK, there is absolutely no good reason why you should ever need to disable the loopback interface.

comment ping takes longer when connected to net via router
Do a traceroute instead of a ping. A traceroute shows the latency per-hop and is almost always a more useful troubleshooting tool. winmtr.net If you are really seeing 7ms latencies to your local router, then I would replace that piece of junk with something better, my linux-based routers tend to only add ~1-2ms on low-end equipment.

My connections sit open for weeks to one VM. Where are you connecting from? Are you crossing a NAT?

comment How do I use ACLs on an encfs filesystem?
AFAIK from a quick Google search Fuse, and anything based on it doesn't support ACLs. If you need ACLs, you probably need to look at DM-Crypt, Truecrypt, or something else.
