comment Rewrite IP address of a host to another IP address with .htaccess
I think this is impossible under the constraints described: if the DNS has mydomain.com -> 123.123.123.123, then for the client to access a different server you have to either change the DNS or change the hostname. You could have the server proxy one to the other, but I'm not sure if that's possible within htaccess.

comment Hardware VPN solution?
Wouldn't simple HTTPS communication suffice? It depends what you mean by "upload" and whether you need communication to be 2-way.

comment How can I run command and select core to be used
If you're on Linux and you really want to run something on a specific core, numactl will do this. Otherwise, as below, run 2 copies at once and they'll be assigned to different cores for you.

comment What is the average lifespan of a CPU?
What often happens after about that time is the thermal goop connecting the CPU to its heatsink degrades. This manifests as crashing after being on for a while, but it can be easily fixed.

comment Exim speed up mails send/recieve mechanism
Are the users in China inside your network or on the public internet? If they're inside your network, then yes you can have a slave Exim server in China to which they send. But they'll still have to wait until it's transmitted from there to the US before it appears in the recipient's inbox. It might fix issues caused by SMTP connections dropped.

comment How can Linux run on different microprocessors?
Clarification: this isn't something that would be done by the end user, but by someone porting Linux to a new kind of system.

comment What is Reverse Gossip Transfer Protocol?
It's as described in that document - it's a bit like NNTP, a protocol for transferring news items. It's rather old and, so far as I know, only used by one site run for a small community of ex-Cambridge people.

What happened leading up to this state? Is this a new install, or was it working and suddenly stopped when you rebooted it?

comment Easy way to “edit” the traffic coming from a tcp host (linux)
There already exist stateful packet inspection systems that can do e.g. rewriting of FTP traffic so that it works across NAT. That's the sort of place to start.

comment Understanding Ports: How do multiple browser tabs communicate at the same time?
This is the correct answer. TCP connections have a port number on both ends. Both computers involved can distinguish between the connection website:80 <-> browser:12397 and the different connection website:80 <-> browser:22958.
