Nice. How to handle arbitrary subdomains, though?

@Khaled SSH-based methods only (such as standard shell, scp or SFTP).

comment Automatically change UID of file
@ChrisNava I don't want to spend the HD space storing file history; I just want to know who last changed.

comment Bacula alternative?
I find that the problem with Bacula is the configuration bureaucracy. Upon any change that I might want to make, I have to edit the director and the client component, and restart both. This is way too error-prone, and the written-in passwords (as opposed to a bluetooth like pairing that would store an actually secure key generated on the spot) are dumb. That added to the fact that I have to restart the director, the freaking director, upon any and every change (no idea about the effect of this on running jobs) made me decide Bacula seems over-engineered compared to its actual reliability.

comment User Friendly port knocker (port knocking client) for Windows?
In the end I only changed the default port from the default 22 to a non-standard one. Some services such as svn+ssh are a pain, but at least I got some obscurity. I repeat: obscurity is insufficient, yes, but not unnecessary.

comment Add SSH host key to another user's PuTTY cache
I just tested and it works fine. It ended up at HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-18\Software\SimonTatham\PuTTY\SshHostKeys. Thanks.

comment exim: remote host is local host?
This filter (stalemail) seems to be about, well, stale mail. :) I was having this problem at a filter called dnslookup; I put it there, problem solved!

comment I need folder permissions set to drwxrwxrwt instead of drwsrwsrwx
@jgbelacqua I Skype regularly with my users and they have had the habit of asking me things directly when they want to understand something about our server. I hope this isn't changing. :(

Maybe your system administrator did that for a reason? I made this exact change to my users' web folders yesterday. Has it been bringing you trouble?
