comment How to use a distributed PostgreSQL database on a web site?
Well, if you really have the need for redundancy then you would want multiple database servers as well. Otherwise, the single database is another single point-of-failure.

comment Communication between two unreachable hosts in a network
+1 to Lee B and Nissan Fan, and to further answer your question, a VPN with the "Server" there as the end-point will still use its bandwidth.

comment Configuration of Switch Module (WIC) on Cisco 3800
Sure. Most types of broadcast traffic stays within the confines of the broadcast domain (VLAN), but Cisco will still send certain PDUs/frames regardless of VLAN configuration such as Spanning-Tree protocol PDUs and CDP (Cisco Discovery Protocol) PDUs. Cisco can probably explain this better than I can, so what follows is a link to Cisco's knowledge base. You probably want to read up on the BPDU Guard and BPDU Filter and pick one of those based on what your requirements are. cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst4000/7.4/…

comment Packet Loss with Cisco 2621 Router
I'm not sure I understand. You have 3 NICs configured with one IP address on the same machine? How are they configured, as a bridge? If so, how are you avoiding briding loops? Is Spanning-Tree Protocol being used?
