comment ssh + tinyproxy: poor performance
+1 - SOCKS is a generally a better idea than using an HTTP proxy. Of course, if Paul really wants to log his traffic, SOCKS may not be appropriate...

comment FreeBSD jails access
hari, VNC inside SSH is really easy, but depends on your client. If you're using a command-line vncviewer command (I recommend ssvncviewer from ports/net/ssvnc) you can use the -via option, which is well documented on the man page.

comment FreeBSD jails access
You're aware that running a vnc server also means running an X stack, right? Do you really want to run the X-windows system in a jail? If so, I suggest you provide the SSH access on your jail server, then use SSH tunnels to get access to VNC. VNC is not a secure protocol (its passwords are in cleartext), so forcing its traffic through an SSH tunnel will provide better security.

comment Manage DNS outage
Actually, "just live with outages" is not an acceptable solution, and the recommendation from RFC 2181 is for geographic diversity of DNS servers specifically to address this concern. It's absolutely true that any provider may experience an outage. It's not so likely that all of them will experience an outage at the same time. Or at least, if they do, then we all probably have other problems to deal with. :) So @Craig - use your ZoneEdit credits. But use something else in addition to ZoneEdit.

comment Support for virtual IPMI in a VM?
It would definitely depend on the virtualization environment you're using. A partitioning system like FreeBSD's "jails" or Solaris Zones/Containers or Linux vserver would not allow something like this to occur because they don't provide hardware virtualization, but a commercial product like VMWare might. Ask your vendor, perhaps?

comment Cron Job not running ( too many open files )
unlimit doesn't address the OP's issue, since the cron job is running as root.

You can sysctl -a | less to see everything that you can tune or monitor with this tool.
