comment Using Free/Open BSD + pf as a DDoS filter
FreeBSD is likely to scale quite a bit better, since it's networking is quite a bit less locky. PF will still run single threaded though, so it may not scale to 1Gb/s

comment nslookup Failure
From his description, it doesn't sound like nslookup goes through nss, since the domain is in /etc/hosts, so should be found by it, if it goes though nss, rather than straight to DNS. That said, I'd agree with using dig rather than nslookup.

comment default mail domain
It appears this is correct. It seems to read /etc/mailname, and then chop off everything up to the first dot to get the domain for users mail addresses.

comment default mail domain
my /etc/mailname says mail.example.com, and I've dpkg-reconfigure'd exim4-config, so that the system mail name, and visible domain name are both set to mail.example.com. But my email is still showing up as coming from user@example.com. Anywhere else it could be set?

comment Unix Cron : Can we set cron jobs to run at the same time
/etc/cron.daily /etc/cron.hourly don't all execute at the same time. They execute in asciibetical order, one after another.
