comment How do I set up a VPN, such that I can connect to my Samba Share and printer?
why and how are you having a samba share on windows?! AFAIK Windows uses SMB.. and Linux uses Samba.. Samba AFAIK is for linux systems to simulate windows file sharing.

comment Windows XP hangs on bootup
@timelessbeing well you could do some tests. Get an XP SP2 ISO see if it has a repair installation option don't go for the repair option, then slipstream it i.e. integrate SP3 into it making it an XP SP3 ISO, see if it still has a repair option, if it does, use it. And report back re slipstreaming an SP2 XP iso, though you'd need to have that and if you can't get it then you can't do that particular test.

comment Where is the mapping located for the ip address and ports to a html or service?
i'm no expert but show screenshots of what you mean particularly as i'm pretty sure your question doesn't make much sense. I think you'll find that webcam video doesn't give any location, and if people want to know the location of your website they look up the IP of it on a site like iptools which checks the RIR databases. If you want to mask it you'd use a web proxy server and they'd just see the address of the proxy. But if you use whatever web hosting company, they only know the location of that company. Just don't have your personal info in the online record for that IP.

comment KVM to/from PCs
With your first sentence, what do you mean "No" and then saying "The correct way to do this is". No what? And if no then what do you mean by "The correct way"? Can you explain how your way is not consistent with what he wants? (I guess you mean that by saying Nope)

@timelessbeing that is very strange.. I don't know if that is because A)Ms dropped it with sp3 b)maybe a cheaper cd like an oem or dell doesn't have it...I have an idea..

comment Windows XP hangs on bootup
@timelessbeing maybe you're not looking in the right place. It's not intuitive to find. You have to push ENTER as if you are going to install it, then the option appears. Can you take a picture with your phone of the screens where you think it's not mentioned when you follow the instructions of what to do at each screen Here's another page describing it with pics philscomputerrepair.com/Windows-XP-Repair-Install.htm

comment VBox NAT Network VPN
You should split the question in two and just ask the first part and answer it first then look at teh second part. First part is What software do you need to set up a VPN in Linux, and what is the procedure. You may find you need this command and some port forwarding. Second part is Then you just need to know how to do port forwarding in virtualbox. They are separate questions.

comment What exactly happens when you reboot your computer?
@Mahdi there is no "except", I just answered the OP's question. I never said that a simple restart will always fix it, and neither did the OP.If I did say that then you could say "except", but I didn't say that. He asked for THOSE ones where it does.If u want to take it a step further as you intended then u could say "To elaborate,when the issue isn't at the level of the hard stored program or in a hard stored file, ie when its fine on hard disk,then a restart fixes it fine,but when the issue is(perhaps this isn't worded gr8) purely with the program on the hard disk, then a restart won't help.

comment What exactly happens when you reboot your computer?
@Mahdi yes but in those situations(as you know) a simple restart won't help. He was asking for the situations when a restart helps.

comment Two router LAN without connecting cable
yeah VPN as scott says. Or, set each "router" to "Wireless Bridge" that connects the "wireless routers" without a cable. The wireless routers may have to be the same model and they have to both support wireless bridge mode.

comment Proxy/firewall windows bypass?
see if it's browser only, try wget. And another thing you can try, is try to ssh out.. easier said than done, if you haven't done it before. But set up an SSH server on your home machine or some unrestricted machine somewhere then SSH to that SSH server , ssh -D will help there.
