comment depends but it is not going to be installed - debian
If you're being asked to do this in the first place, something has already broken. When you run it, examine each change it wants to ensure it makes sense.

comment 100Mbps and Gigabit switch on the same LAN
If it were true, it would be a hub. And I'm pretty sure that Gb hubs don't exist (shudder).

comment Which home router support IPv6?
Good question - I asked this on Twitter, I should have asked on here :) And I would suggest it does belong on Server Fault - as systems administrators look towards enabling IPv6 on their corporate networks they will have to be concerned what home/remote/VPN users are using at their end to connect.

comment How do I test IPX connectivity between two computers?
We still have a customer with the following setup (done before we took over the support): RHEL on one server, Netware on another running a legacy DOS app. Plus, a Windows 95 box whose sole purpose is to mount the Netware drives via IPX so that the RHEL box can back up the Netware server.
