I'm just a simple IT guy, who does a bit of programming on the side.

@Trip, see How does IPv4 Subnetting Work for the details of CIDR addressing.

@ekaj I know, I was sharply simplifying my response to match the effort put into the Question. Feel free to write a detailed Answer and you've got my upvote...

Sounds like your fan's bearings are bad.

comment Securing FreeBSD in single user mode
He likely thinks it's "funny" because anyone with physical access to an unencrypted machine can boot whatever they want and access the raw data of the machine without restrictions.

@MaQleod You wrote a comment twice a long as my crappy answer explaining why it's crappy instead of writing a good answer... probably for the same reason I didn't write a good answer. =]

comment How does Windows Vista/7/2008 bootmgr work behind the scene?
Sorry, this answer is rather off topic for Super User. On Server Fault we consider "don't do that" type answers to be The Right Answer sometimes. I'll leave this here for reference but you're right that it doesn't suit the question here.

comment Why does an access point have a BSSID?
@quadruplebucky Snooping on the functions of a higher level seems like a dubious definition of "operates", but you're free to have an opinion.

comment Why does an access point have a BSSID?
@no.human.being An Ethernet switch only snoops on MAC addresses for efficiency. It's not a layer 2 device in the traditional sense of the term unless it also has management functions and communicates with devices on the network.

comment Access an internal network Webcam from outside (www)?
You need mod_proxy, not rewrite. I'd highly recommend finding someone who knows what they're doing to help you before you expose your entire internal network to the Internet, or become an open relay.

You think that is enough, or you actually looked at the spec sheet and know that is enough?

comment Can I sign code with a website SSL certificate?
@njr101 I buy certs from StartSSL. They only charge to verify who you are (and also company names if you want those), once verified they'll issue as many certificates with that information as you want, including free "server" certs without any personal or company information. Most other CA's treat the certificate itself as a product to be sold, and charge as much as they think they can get away with (that's capitalism at it's finest).

comment Driving two 2560x1440 displays with Lenovo T430 and 433715U ThinkPad Mini Dock Series 3
#3 is true, if the chipset supports daisy-chained displays. Last I knew AMD was the only manufacturer to support this, and people have reported problems with various drivers and whatnot.

comment Catch 22: Missing Acer Network Drivers
+1 Seriously, any website trying to instill credibility with a generic name like "Official Drivers" is obviously unofficial and likely malware. @JohnJudd You should consider running a good anti-malware scan against both computers that were exposed to that website; or better yet, reinstall...

Yeah, he's not actually trying to download from Acer. See his update on the crapware ridden site he's trying to use.

comment Is there any linux server with public ip on the internet?
"I want" and "free" should never be in the same sentence. If it has value to you, you should be willing to pay something for it.

I don't suppose you're trying to block the licensing/registration mechanism of some program??

comment can not access my public ip open port?
@BorisIvanov Telling an end user to enable Remote Administration sounds like a terrible idea. He's probably got a terrible password, and will forget it's enabled, leaving him vulnerable to the Internet until it get's hacked.

netcat -l -p 8604 is invalid.. I think you mean nc -l 8604?
