comment Q: Is it possible to monitor SSH activity across local network (within organization)?
It's possible to tell the protocol used from the structure of the traffic, but that's an advanced operation that would be on an advanced firewall or gateway device. A basic firewall that is simply set to allow any traffic on port 80 would allow it. If you want to make it look like HTTPS traffic on the protocol level, you have set up and tunnel your SSH through an HTTPS tunnel (adding latency and slowness) - I believe there are tools to accomplish this if you have a system outside of the network that can accept incoming connections.

comment Does UEFI potentially leak encryption keys?
I have heard that the only thing battery backed in most modern systems is the clock and that CMOS and NVRAM are usually EEPROM/flash memory now. And you don't want to clear it because it also stores boot information. However - read this: en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3518/t/19593860 - looks like on that model you might be able to clear NVRAM by holding power for 30 seconds?

comment What's wrong with disabling the Windows page file?
The "safe" amount depends on the programs you run and when and how much they ask for memory. There isn't a specific amount of RAM that makes it OK to turn off your page file, it's the combination of programs you will run at once. Some programs are very deterministic and predictable and their memory requirements can be easily estimated, other programs, like browsers, are not.

comment Loading a website using IP
Your browser will not send a 'Host:' header if you specify http://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX. DNS doesn't really have anything to do with the header directly (your browser uses DNS to find the IP of the host, and also sends the Host: header.) Behavior can vary according to how the web server is configured if your browser sends no header - it may ignore you, return an error, take you to a default site, simply not care, etc. The whole reason for the Host: header is so that one IP can be used to host sites for multiple domains - so mysite.example and mysite2.example can point to the same IP.

You're probably in the wrong directory. You may need to issue a cd command.
