comment Accessing server on private network
Was originally going to post it on stackoverflow. Regardless, you gave me some great tips! Let me do a little research. Thank you

Recommended link to read up on authentication? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_Level_Authentication seems to discuss remote desktop. Is this what I want?

comment Accessing server on private network
I thought the request IP can easily be spoofed. Would a company so readily allow inputs from a given IP? Maybe if set up to only allow access to given servers within the private network? BOX could easily access the public IP, but how does it reach a specific server on the private network without using port forwarding?

Thanks CIA. I agree the devices will both act as servers and clients. Don't wish to require the customer to set up port forwarding. I don't know much about NAT and need to learn up on it. Will NAT accomplish my goal? Yes, I could re-write the data-logging app, and could send HTTP headers with username/password/etc. With this information, would could the remote client (BOX) be able to get past the customer's firewall and initiate a request to the data-logger?

Bummer! What if the data-logger periodically initiated a request to ask if BOX needed anything, and BOX responded with what it needed, and the data-logger sends the data?

Thanks Michael, After asking about replication, I did a little research and found it. Very nice answer!

comment Change webserver with minimal downtime
Zero downtime is good! I've never done database replication. Is this available with MySQL community edition (EDIT. Looks like it is: dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/replication.html)? Could you give me some key words to google regarding the /etc/hosts trick? Thank you

comment Configure MySQL so it doesn't automatically change values in NOT NULL columns
Hello downvoter. I am not asking how to perform a query, but asking how to configure a MySQL server so it enforces these constraints. Why the downvote?

comment Configure MySQL so it doesn't automatically change values in NOT NULL columns
I had STRICT_TRANS_TABLES, not STRICT_ALL_TABLES in my.cnf. And no, I don't believe I am starting as mysqld_safe, but need to read up on it.

comment Configure MySQL so it doesn't automatically change values in NOT NULL columns
Thanks Mike. Yes, I recently came across dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/…, and found that I need to use STRICT_ALL_TABLES if I wish to throw an error.
