comment Permanently delete files from a flash drive
Governments use shredders for data destruction. A hammer is a high velocity shredder. If someone needs to be told to break the chip and not just the plastic shell, they need more help than a Q/A site can give them. Also, no one mentioned governments until just now, so that's a bit of a goalpost shift.

comment Disallow this user from accessing my computer
@Eyla I completely understand your situation. For most of my professional career I've worked in the internal IT department of non-profits or as an external contractor. Many times I've had to make solutions using chewing gum and double-sided Scotch tape. Just be advised that those solutions nearly universally cause more loss in the long run and even the ruination of the organization (as doomsday as that sounds, it can happen and has happened). Sad to say, you cannot do exactly what you want using a no-cost solution.

@Rushino in that case you can safely ignore MikeyB and voretaq7's responses, unless you want to do this from a Linux live CD. =)

comment Stubborn APIPA Issue (possible IPv4 problem, IPv6 = okay?)
Things have been tainted now with the system restore. Always uninstall updates from the Programs and Features tool. System restore is a last ditch effort to get a system up so you can remove files and then drop a grenade.

comment KVM over IP solutions
@Peaches491 It has one Ethernet port and then a "cascade" port which is in essence a single port switch. This means that you don't need to Ethernet drops at the device location. For example, I'll place the Spider on a PC, the network cable from the wall goes into the Spider and then the PC's network cable goes into the Spider. Both Spider and PC have connectivity.

comment VPN to server, then access files on same server… and RDP to same server
The programs to use are simply Windows own firewall control panel as well as the routing and remote access admin tool that is probably what is managing the VPN.

comment VPN to server, then access files on same server… and RDP to same server
If the server's internal address is also the external address, then that probably means that the entire local network isn't RFC 1918 compliant, which isn't a huge problem... some networks are still that way... but it's still odd.

@Farseeker, our own human Rolodex. You are human, right? Or are you Evan's twin? Which one is the evil one? Do you bleed milk?

comment Network connection through a wall
@BCS You have a point there! =) Let me clarify, is 512bit TLS enough for you? It could be done. VPN over WiFi ala SonicWall's habit of doing things. Add in some microwave dishes and a '74 Buick as a generator and you've got yourself a par-tay! =)

comment Network connection through a wall
@BCS You can make it secure enough for government standards, as reliable as wired (plus backhoes, saws or hammers won't come into play), and well over a GBit with the right equipment.
