comment Only 5 simultaneously users with PPTP VPN?
Do you not need to have Client Access Licenses for more than 5 concurrent users? I thought this was for Terminal Services/Remote Desktop but it may affect VPNs as well.

comment How can I configure my SOHO Windows 7 machine to host a Minecraft Server that requires people to join the VPN prior to connecting?
@Ryan, that question is three years old - a time when the site's "topics" were not clearly defined. If that question was asked now, it would be closed.

Hi, Michael. Unfortunately questions about home-hosted server is off-topic for ServerFault so this question will either be closed or migrated to a more suited site shortly. Please checkout the FAQ for the site you're posting on. What does canyouseeme.org say?

comment Rate limiting bandwidth per IP
Hi, Yohan. While I appriciate your issue you may be better asking over at a sister site of ours such as SuperUser - ServerFault is meant for system administrators and desktop support professionals. This should get closed or migrated shortly - don't repost it there yet. However, if you know, is the "Linux 11.1" box what you access the internet through, or is there a router involved somewhere else? And if you know that, what is the make and model of the router?

SuperUser would be a better fit for your question - but DO NOT repost it yet. This question will either be migrated or closed here - in the latters case you can re-ask it on SuperUser.

comment How do I set the hostname of a Windows machine?
If you are connected to a wireless router or devices that hands out IP addresses some do tend to set a domain or hostname as .local - go into the router settings (if you have access to it) and see if there are any options to change the domain.

comment Need advice on HDD imaging software
+1 for Clonezilla. Takes a bit of getting used to but is free, decent software. Only downside is that it can't seem to resize images to a smaller disk size that was imaged from.

@Moab, I realise it was but as I found it through the "vote to close" dialogue and I read the question and answers for a couple of minutes before actually posting the comment.

comment how to evaluate the performance of a dedicated server for hosting web sites
As this question is off-topic on ServerFault it's off-topic here. All we can say it "it depends".

comment Long distance wifi for media cloud
Skipping over the potential legal and security issues for a moment, you would have an unsecured wireless hotspot (or something like a Captive Portal that requires a login, with the username and password on the login page) with your media computer connected to it. You could connect your home computer on it but you would have to used a different subnet (or, if you really wanted to, buy a switch that supports VLANs).

comment Long distance wifi for media cloud
I don't understand by what you mean by "long distance wifi"? DO you mean a long distance wireless network, or accessible over the interent? Pulling any sort of video over consumer wireless I would highly advise against but YMMV.

Is this not just a case of setting a staic IP in the Ubuntu Guest?

comment what are these “online installers” for?
Whatever their purpose, they intensely annoy me. When I click on "download" I want the program, not a program that downloads the program for me. Adobe Flash, I'm looking at you.

comment Motherboard battery and clock
@Ramhound, don't you think RMA'ing the motherboard is a little excessive, considering that the OP hasn't even attempted replacing the battery.
