comment Mapping a Remote Network Drive
You port forward tcp/445 on your internet router to the NAS hosting the share. But seriously, don't do this unless you fully understand the risks.

There are two options - either the Windows server provides access to its shares across the internet (a bad idea) or you use a VPN.

Because it is using private keys. See the link.

comment how do I ssh while automatically using the password I use for my account
Your computer doesn't know your password, it only stores an (effectively) non-reversible encrypted copy of it. If you want to automatically log in, use private keys: superuser.com/questions/8077/…

comment Infinitely deep folder without symlinks in ext4
You might have a corrupted filesystem there. The number after the permissions is the link count - it specifies how many directories are linking to the file. Normally this is a low number. Have you run fsck on the file system?

comment SSHing into VPS with single IP
It would be defined in the guest VM settings in VirtualBox. The default way is NAT I believe, but the "normal" way is dependent on the application.

comment Which one has the least amount of latency: powerline or 802.11AC?
Powerline should have less latency in optimal conditions than wifi as it is wired. However, it depends a lot on how clean / connected the power line is as to how much latency / throughput. I suspect this question cannot be definitively answered because it is dependent on the environment.

What networking mode is the VM using? If NAT, consider using bridged. That way the VM gets its own IP address and you can change the port-forwarding rule to point at the VM address.

comment Hostname resolution of Linux machines with static IP
@Edward_178118 It requires a DNS server that allows updates, which "proper" ones do, but it is unlikely that one in a router would work. Internet registered domains are not special, they are just registered, the DNS works the same. So it will work for both.

It is the swapping.

comment Can I use my netgear router like a “mini” DNS server?
This depends on the model of the router, whether the feature is there. If it isn't, then the next option is to run DNS/DHCP from the webserver.

comment Draytek Vigor2925 router: I'd like to create a split wifi network that operates 9-5 weekdays
How about hooking up the WAP to one of those power outlet timers and literally turning it off and on?
