comment cannot log on to server 2008 with local user
Why don't you just login to your laptop with your normal domain account? Cached credentials will allow you to do this even if you are not connected to the domain.

comment Accessing vm(vmware instance) from ESX server through commandline
Something like the Vmware Management Assistant VM available for download from VMware is probably the way to go instead of using the Service Console.

comment Testing whether jumbo frames are actually working
Ok - man page would have helped you straight away, but I've updated with the specific details for Linux. Do not fragment flag is required for test to work properly, and this isn't as clear in Linux ping as in Windows.

comment Sending e-mails with SMTP from PHP on Ubuntu Server
I didn't mark your answer down, but can say this. Think of someone hunting Google for a similar issue. The top result is this page. They get to this page only to find the only answer is to go back to Google. Not very helpful is it? The point of this site is to answer the questions definitively, as a resource for everyone, not just the original poster. If you think the OP didn't try hard enough, leave a comment, vote down their question, flag it, or move on leaving it for someone else, or oblivion.

comment router flapping after plugging in server
When you say "it is up and down like a yoyo" are you referring to the router or the server? How are you establishing up or down or flapping? What happens to the other devices on your network? Have you got console access to your router, and do you know what to do if you have this?

comment Caching youtube on LAN
Probably because their ranking mechanism relies on views, and possibly completed views, which wouldn't be measurable if the content was served from a local cache. It probably also simplifies content licensing issues.
