comment How to create a multi-domain self-signed certificate for Apache2?
@coolwater - Good advice if I'm setting up a production server at work, which would be in our own /16 block. For those of us with small business connections that only give five static IPs, not really an option. I've dealt with this by limiting myself to five SSL Vhosts, one per IP.

comment Does it matter who I purchase my domain from?
Definitely agree that from a performance standpoint, DNS servers are all that matter. Though most people who just have a handful of domains don't have their own NSs. I'd recommend GoDaddy both as a registrar and their NSs, I've used them for years and never had a complaint (thought I just moved DNS in-house due to technical limitations).

comment Remote traffic capture probe
The mirror port/SPAN port probably won't happen. For all intents and purposes, we can read anything on the switch and manually change VLANs or enable/disable ports, but nothing more. No, on the affected subnets, it's dynamic addressing only. I think I have a theory on this... we'll see how the work goes...

comment Remote traffic capture probe
Well.. .it's complicated. DHCP is done via IP helpers on the routers, so apparently OFFERS from other DHCP boxes never make it back to ours. Static IPs aren't really an option... we have a pool of 16k addresses and our system doesn't really allow statics on these networks. I think at this point my theory is to use Soekris boxes with minimal Linux on them with tcpdump and an SSH server. The type of thing we can make a dozen of and, if need be, have relatively unskilled techs install. Also, a few of us have enable access to the switches, but it's not automate-able (long story).

comment Simple bandwidth monitor
vnStat looks good, and I also remember using ntop (it isn't installed on my router now, but I remember using something on another box that I liked the best, perhaps ntop was it).
