comment How to use sudo with rcp command to copy files from linux host to HP-UX host?
Pretty much - a reference to scp is informative so I added it; note that I up-voted your answer rather than make my own...

You don't want to enable rcp to receive as root, if you do get it to work then take a few minutes to disable it. Better to use scp as a non-root user on both sides and then sudo mv and chown appropriately on the other side.

comment Our company claims that the DLP system can even monitor the contents of HTTPS traffic, how is this possible?
This is commonly done. An enterprise configures a proxy server and installs a certificate that matches * - all the browsers make https connections which terminate at the proxy server which thens reads/saves/modifies/scans the data and establishes an https session with the actualy destination server. A sophisticated user can look at the certificate presented to their browser and know, but no one but me checks the certificates manually ;)

comment How can users bypass the “This connection is untrusted” page?
The answer depends on the use case IMO; Why do you want users to click past that (appropriately) scary dialog?

comment How we can disable the packets which are received continuously?
Some amount of inbound 'noise' is expected... ignoring the noise will not make it go away. The easiest way to disable it is unplug your upstream edge (ie your DSL box or whatever your gateway device is).

Silly question perhaps but can you or do you already have ethernet laid (or coas or phone wire or... taught strings)?

comment Should I enable jumbo frame size of 9000 bytes for my NICs?
It can improve a good bit more depending on the nature of your traffic - a home network is unlikely to see better than 10% improvement due to usage pattern.

comment How can I prevent Google Street View from tracking my location?
@JaderDias I hear you - I think I answered what OP meant. I also answered what OP asked in case that's what they really meant - see the paragraph starting "Since your wireless router"... that IMO addresses the question asked - no?

comment How can I prevent Google Street View from tracking my location?
@Jader Dias: I think the focus of the question relates to concern regarding public publication of the individuals location - contrast this with the location of their WiFi network. Should asker clarify contrary to my assumption I'm happy to address that too. Cheers
