comment How can I use cygwin without wasting HD space?
How is this the top rated answer? It doesn't answer the question, it merely dismisses the relevance of the question! -1 Lots of situations where a few gig make a difference (like the 1.7G cygwin folder on my 160GB SSD!)

comment Error printing from 16-bit applications in Windows 2008 Server
If that doesn;t work, a workaround exists by using Printfil printfil.com/english.htm to print from your DOS app.

I'm guessing 32 bit, since 64-bit Win2008 won't run 16 bit applications at all.

comment My Windows 7 PC receives a double gateway from the DHCP server. Why?
Please re-read my post. You can only have a single default gateway per NIC. It is possible to have multiple gateways with multiple NICs, but I don't see how you could have more than one default gateway per NIC, as this goes against the very definition of 'default'!

comment How do I enable command line remote access to a Windows Server 2008 machine?
+1 for WinSSHD. It may be third party but it integrates well and is simple to setup. That said it sounds as though you don't need any of the extra features a full-blown ssh daemon provides, so the powershell option might be best.

comment How to discover the mac address of machines in a network?
Edit - just reread the part about them being BIOS only. This presents further challenges beyond the problem of intercepting the layer 2 data - the clients may not even send any data over the network. If the clients have a bios that does DHCP, or sends ARP packets out, it should be possible to see them from the switch. I'm not sure what BIOS editions support this, I know some do though.

comment When connected to Windows VPN (RRAS) I'm able to ping by FQDN but not Hostname
This is not necessarily indicative of a problem, it probably just means Reverse DNS lookup isn't setup on the DNS server, so you can't get its name from its IP. This shouldn't impact on your ability to resolve IPs from FQDNs using the server. You may want to restup a reverse lookup zone on the DNS server, but it's not super important. Did you try resolving the local address in nslookup? Did it resolve to the correct IP?
