comment Why does blocking DNS traffic to 192.168.. cause a “limited” connection with the router?
I am sorry, but what you are saying makes no sense. It is very clear to me that you are either are not providing all the information we need to understand your question, or you are confused.

What resolvers is your client using? What happens when you run nslookup www.google.com when your firewall rules in place?

Sorry, but what he said is NOT incorrect, you just didn't provide adequate information in your question, ie stating that you were using external resolvers, also making it clear that you are talking about your host-based firewall. If you ask a poor question please don't be surprised when you get poor answers.

comment Linux bash Break if loop
Variable names are case sensitive. Your declaration of GROUPS (incorrectly using a reserved name), is a difference case from your use of $Groups.

comment Linux bash Break if loop
Oh, and one other things. $GROUPS is an internal variable. You can't use it, it already has a special meaning.

comment Windows Script Issue - Works line by line, not as run.cmd
Since this is a cmd, You might want to add a @echo on at the start of the script and see if you get an explicit error messages displayed.

comment Linux bash Break if loop
I suggest adding a set -x to your script above the section you are trying to debug. This will result in verbose output being displayed on your screen about each command being run. This should probably making solving the issue a lot easier.

If you can afford a 1tb ssd, can you not afford the ~$20 for a usb sata dock?

Is there some reason why you aren't asking how to do this yourself? This site isn't for legal opinions or parsing EULAs. It is for solving tech problems.

comment Export document properties of every file in a folder
I am not sure being lazy here is going to be an option. I suspect you are going to have to compose a script. To get you started here is an article on how to get properties for a Word document in Powershell. blogs.technet.com/b/heyscriptingguy/archive/2009/12/29/…

comment Why is this sudo command try to run in /root?
If it was me I would probably try passing a -v option to ssh to make sure that is doing what you expect, then I might use preface your remote command with strace. You will get lots of verbose detail that way, but it might send you the right direction.

comment expose VPN IP to External IP
Please edit the info in your comments into your question. Maybe also consider spending the 5-15 minutes to actually drawing a network diagram showing where everything is with respect to each other. In any case the answer almost certainly is about properly configuring your routes. Without a detailed network description or diagram, I doubt anyone can tell you what routes you need.

comment How to add a trusted site to IE via Command Line
There are many ways to manipulate the registry with the cmd or powershell. Since yo already seem to have found the details about making the registry changes, all you have to do is combine the two things together. In any case search around here there lots of examples.

comment Is it acceptable to have a privileged account with a shard password on multiple systems?
If this is a service account why not modify your sudo config, so that it can use sudo without a password for the specific tools it needs to run? How does Nexpose remotely access the systems? SSH, if so then setup key-based authentication for that. Anyway, in short, you should need a shared password for this. You should be able to setup password-less authentication for this service.

comment Giving an rdp session it's own keyboard and mouse
There was a company that did something sorta like this. Microsoft basically threatened them into killing the product, claiming that the company was violating the Windows EULA. Microsoft was fine if they used a Server edition of Windows with an appropriate number of TS cals.

comment Computer is frozen - is there any way to save the contents of RAM?
Press CTRL-ALT-F1, do you get to a virtual console? If yes, login, and possibly terminal the failed process. If no, then you are probably SOL.
