I am currently a Computer Science graduate student (Ph. D. seeking) at the University of Maryland. I do a lot of programming (primarily web application development) for small businesses and nonprofits.

In school, I focus mostly on security, and I have also worked on counter-terrorism applications.

You can find me most days in PHP and/or C#, but increasingly in JavaScript with a focus on Rich Internet Application areas (knockout.js, durandal, breeze.js, etc).

comment Port forwarding to the router itself on Edgerouter
@joeqwerty VPN is an option, though I'm sure that there has to be way to do this and I would like to find it just for the sake of knowing. I'm not concerned about a port scanner though - I have several other locations using other firewall software (pfSense, ISP-provided, and others) and have cut down from thousands of attacks per location per day to almost zero, simply by changing the port.

comment PHP-FPM TCP connections not terminating in time
I don't know for sure whether it will clear the problem up or not. (That's why this is a comment, not an answer.) It certainly can't hurt to try though.

comment PHP-FPM TCP connections not terminating in time
TCP Sockets are only more scalable if you actually use multiple worker machines and farm the connections out to them. If you are only using a single machine, then the extra overhead of encapsulating the data in TCP packets in FPM and deencapsulating it again in Nginx means that domain sockets are more efficient.

comment PHP-FPM TCP connections not terminating in time
Have you tried using Unix Domain Sockets instead of TCP to communicate from Nginx to PHP-FPM? I don't know why you are having this problem with TCP connections, but switching to not use TCP may be the easiest fix.

comment How to “un-ANSI-fy” logs?
@Guss what version of Bower are you using? It has supported that flag since 2012.

comment How to “un-ANSI-fy” logs?
If you know that you will be writing the output to a file, the easiest thing to do (at least for NPM) is to run with the --no-color flag. Many other commands also have similar flags.

comment Ubiquiti Wireless Guest Network VLAN w/ pfSense + Cisco Switch
I had exactly the same problem, only with a Netgear "Smart" Switch instead of a Cisco Switch. The problem is almost certainly the VLAN / Trunk settings on the switch itself.

comment Java Spring application working on one system, dying on almost identical one
What does the code look like at someClass.java:234 where the Null exception is thrown? Is it trying to get outside data?

comment Can I use something like a tunnel for SSH in this Linux/Windows Remote Desktop scenario?
Why not install an SSH server on the Windows machine and tunnel with that? There are lots of SSH Servers for Windows available.
