It seems a community post Alternative to Safepoint might work well, if the remote server supports rsync.

comment How do you type Unicode characters using hexadecimal codes?
Just like @Jukka mentioned, the page I linked to in my answer also suggests you'd need to prefix a zero, and that it depends on the input language.

Thanks for removing the old parts; see also When is “EDIT”/“UPDATE” appropriate in a post? Cheers.

But, Boldewyn, I think that "2295 has nothing to do with 2248" is related to Windows not expecting Unicode codes at all when using Alt+numpad (when the registry hack is not applied). I guess it's then expecting some Windows codes, and I'm sure it's expecting decimal, without the registry hack. I really do not see how Notepad would be the culprit. That second part of your answer is just a wild guess, which I feel is wrong.

I'd say it's not related to encoding or problems in Notepad, but related to decimal vs hexadecimal.

comment Can email spoofing be prevented?
Just in case you think SPF is the solution: most (if not all) SPF implementations are not enough to stop spamming, nor to stop fake senders. Like it would not stop a spammer from using the SMTP command mail from: <whatever@spammer-spf-controlled-domain.com> followed by the header From: Someone Else <someone-else@example.com>, the latter being the address that will be visible in the email client. (Also, recipients might be surprised by some emails not being delivered if they set up email forwarding; my provider promotes NOT using SPF...)

Please don't ask two questions in a single post. Now you've got an answer that is not related to the title. Messy.

I don't see how this is related to (only) changing the background color of Windows Photo Viewer. Did you mean to post this to another question?

So it's only about external browsing? (Please add the answers to the comments to the question and its title.)
