comment AWS VPC - why have a private subnet at all?
Thanks Tom. I think it's also possible to have 1 public subnet but only assign an ElasticIP to the NAT instance. The other instances on the public subnet will have outbound internet access via the Internet Gateway, and inbound access could be configured via port forwards on the NAT instance. I got the feeling that 2 subnets is the "proper" way, but not seeing a crystal clear reason for it.

comment My DNS is down but can I find records somehow from the DNS from some cache?
I think you use "dig" to query another DNS server. I don't think you need to do anything special to pull it out of the cache, but if the TTL hasn't expired another DNS server may still serve up the old records if you're quick: dig @some.other.nameserver.org your.domain.com (madboa.com/geek/dig)

comment Transferring domain to Amazon Route 53. Being asked for NS server's IP addresses
As indicated in my post, I have no issue finding the NS entries. But Amazon do not list IP addresses for them. Web24 is asking for IP addresses. I'm concerned that perhaps Amazon is only giving out FQDNs because the name servers are clusters, so I was concerned I was making a config error.

That's how I'd normally do it, but the guide over at AWS suggests otherwise. have you read the AWS guide?

comment openVPN disconnect via command line in linux
This takes it down OK, but it doesnt kill the openvpn process. If I want to bring the connection back up again, I have to bring the interface back up, and then I have to kill the openvpn process, and then I have to run openvpn --config <blah> again. I (and I think the OP) was wondering if this is the way it's intended, or if there is a neater way we're just not aware of.
