comment Move a WMWare Workstation from an Intel 32-bits to a AMD 64-bits with two proccesors
If the VM is running fine, then the VM transfer is ok. It is very important that the guest kernel is fully supporting the new cpu. Reinstall VMware Tools on the guest that was moved.

comment Move a WMWare Workstation from an Intel 32-bits to a AMD 64-bits with two proccesors
The snapshots taken when the VM is shouted down are fine. Only those taken when the VM was running are not portable. Usually, you can only move 32bit VM from and to a 32bit host. 64bit VM are incompatible with 32bit hosts. Even if they might run, they will run in emulation mode at much slower speed.

Did you changed the firewall rules or /etc/hosts.* in the last few days?

comment SSHD : “connection closed by remote host”
if you run dmesg do you have any messages containing oom-killer? If you have, then you are running out of physical memory.

comment Puppet hang on 100% CPU usage
Try to use strace as @Zoredache said. Complementary, you can use pstack and ltrace too.

comment Client can not access some HTTPS through Squeeze gateway
When it is not working, did you check if there is any error in the proxy log? You can also use Fiddler2 with the browser to analyze the traffic. You can also use Wireshark to find our if there is a SSL negotiation error (look for ALERT messages in the trace).

comment How can I stop Linux from sending ICMP “Destination Unreachable” responses?
The fact that you ask this kind of question and you do not know how to use a firewall to filter them shows your lack of knowledge. Your question should be "What are the reasons to filer or not ICMP destination unreachable?"

And by local IP you mean the local ethernet IP or the local loopback IP?
