comment Netgear FS728FP - VLAN traffic isn't flowing
the pvid would be whatever vlan your router's internal address uses. And you'd need a router that itself either supports vlan tagging.

comment Netgear FS728FP - VLAN traffic isn't flowing
Just saw this, but I have a couple of these switches and I can confirm this is correct the answer. The way this works is that some devices may need to participate in many vlans... say servers, or wireless access points that provide service to ssids that each have their own vlan. You distinguish between these vlans on the same port using TAGs. When there is no tag for a packet, you still need to know which vlan it belongs to. Some switches handle this by automatically and completely removing membership from a vlan when a new untagged vlan is selected, while others use a PVID setting.

comment Linux DMZ in a Windows Network
You set up a dmz as a dedicated network port or address range/routes in your router or gateway firewall. If you're looking for an OS to act as a security device, that's more in the firewall or UTM space than DMZ space. Think SonicWall, Untangle, Watchguard, Fortinet, Cisco ASA.

A DMZ is a network segment more than it is a specific server.

The new 11.2 version of Untangle released today now supports MAC address-based rules.

comment Why does x86 represent 32bit when x64 represents 64bit?
I want to vote this up, but the current vote count (86) is too perfect. I think I'll check your profile and find another deserving answer instead.

comment Is post-sudden-power-loss filesystem corruption on an SSD drive's ext3 partition “expected behavior”?
@pusi Old now, but you mention this: as long as the drive correctly reports whether it has a write cache and obeys commands to flush it, the journal guarantees that the metadata will not be inconsistent. That's the thing: because of storage controllers that tend to assume older disks, SSDs will sometimes lie about whether data is flushed. You do need that supercap.
