comment Is a web server actually REQUIRED in order to make html content available to the internet?
Bottom line, you need an application listening on a port that knows how to "speak" the HTTP protocol. It doesn't have to be IIS on Windows and it doesn't have to be Apache on Linux. You could hypothetically write your own from scratch using only a built-in scripting language on your platform of choice. It's just not a very smart option.

comment Configure custom SSL certificate for RDP on Windows Server 2012 in Remote Administration mode?
I don't recall specifically, but I'm pretty sure it does because it's effectively a new cert.

comment Using SSH Keys with Kerberos
The private key setting in PuTTY is only for SSH Keys, not Kerberos. But don't worry about keytabs just yet. Is your machine joined to an Active Directory? If so, run the klist command in a cmd prompt to see your current ticket list. One of the entries should have a Server entry that starts with 'krbtgt' and ends with your realm name. Does that realm match the realm that your Linux boxes are in? If your machine is not joined to Active Directory, you're going to need to configure Windows to recognize the Kerberos realm that your Linux boxes are in. That might warrant a separate question.

comment Why don't Active Directory user accounts automatically support Kerberos AES authentication?
You can likely make this the default for new users by modifying the AD schema. You should probably ask it as a separate question if you want a more detailed answer though.

comment Disable IPv6 on Loopback address (Localhost, Computer name, …)
You need to reboot after modifying the DisabledComponents value. If you've set it to 0xffffffff, there is no way it didn't work even on 2012R2. The results of running an ipconfig should return nothing that is IPv6 related and as such, pinging localhost should ping the v4 address.

comment Windows RDS - speed up log-off
I'm curious how users even notice a slow logoff? Presumably they've closed the app window because they're done with their session, right? And they're either walking away or switching to a new non-RDS related task. But the 20-30 seconds it takes for the session to fully close they shouldn't notice because that's only happening server side. Am I missing something?

comment Polling FTPS/SFTP Server with Windows Server 2012
I believe there are even 100% Powershell native implementations of SSH/SFTP out there as well that use nothing but the .NET class libraries available in the base OS. But you're still never going to write something like that yourself. And at the point you're downloading someone else's script, there's not much difference between downloading that vs a binary utility like putty or winscp.

comment Active Directory Username Formats
In most of the environments I've managed, usernames were purposefully not related to the user's name to avoid issues with duplicate names, name changes, and all of the other headache involved with name based IDs.

comment How do I find out if a file or folder breaks inheritance inside another folder in NTFS without looking at all the files and folders?
I believe it is intended to be run locally. It's been a while since I've used it and it hasn't been updated in a while either.
