A generalist. Or, better put, jack of all trades, master of none.

@TomO'Connor I'm not sure this practical question is answered directly in the canonical answer about IPv4 subnets.

@HopelessN00b I disagree. It's absolutely and completely a request for expert answers related to managing computer systems in a professional capacity.

comment Can VPNs reduce latency?
@HopelessN00b I'm thinking about offering a very latency sensitive gaming service. I need to know what can be done to improve the experience and what the limits are and where are they. This is totally on topic from that POV, IMO.

For admins: this is a similar question, but different enough to warrant different answers. @3molo: I also wish you could.

@michael_n Don't all VPNs use some kind of encryption? That's what I meant. You can of course send/receive encrypted data and not partake in a VPN.

comment How do I find if there is a rogue DHCP server on my Network?
Depends on the amount of people you are serving. You can disrupt the service for a couple of minutes in most cases and nobody will notice, especially in the middle of the day when most people have their lease already.
