comment Switching to IPv6 implies dropping NAT. Is that a good thing?
However the question was asked, it illicited interesting replies, and probably turns up in search results for people with similar fears so +1

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.

comment pointing sub domain to 127.0.0.1:port?
Ok - in that case, you will need to keep the port numbers in your URLs so that the requests are sent to the correct ports. You cannot define ports in DNS - just IP addresses.

comment Enable Ping in Windows Server Firewall?
What is more dumb is that the rule is disabled for the Domain profile, but enabled for Public and Private profiles. Surely most Domain profiles are on networks with a higher existing level of security than those you might deem Private or even Public...
