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

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.

Not sure, you should probably now open a followup question on how to tune / debug SYN queue issues

comment Some Apache requests are slow, most complete instantly
I would personally try to use a big number, like 16 or 64K to make sure it's not an attack (on an attack virtually every limit would get surpassed), and if it's not an attack, I would gradually diminish the queue size until a good small value is found)

comment SYN flooding still a threat to servers?
I think that enabling them when needed is better than enabling them by default. They might be spec compliant, but they also reduce the amount of the spec you can use...

comment Some Apache requests are slow, most complete instantly
That message means your SYN queue gets repeatedly full. That may be due to legitimate requests or not. If the requests are legitimate, you can increase the size of the queue with tcp_max_syn_backlog. See linuxinsight.com/proc_sys_net_ipv4_tcp_syncookies.html and redhat.com/archives/rhl-devel-list/2005-January/msg00447.html

comment \\NAME\share gets permission denied whereas \\IP\share doesn't
Edited the question with more info I thought about after reading your answer. But, how do I know if Windows is using a cached set of credentials? I've already tried rebooting.
