Hello, my name is Chris. I'd love to introduce myself, but how do you summarize a life in a few sentences? I could tell you about the two beautiful women in my life, my wife and daughter; or that I work as a systems administrator; that I help my friends and family at every opportunity; or about the work I've done in my community. Perhaps it's best to leave this short, and say I'm someone who's glad to meeting you and hope I can help with whatever problems.

I'm a Windows administrator by day; but my first passion is FreeBSD and Open Source Software. I put my money where my mouth is on a quarterly basis. I'm inspired everyday by my peers, their abilities, drive, and passion for competent applications of technology and supporting operationals. As a Myers-Briggs INTJ and DISC C/D I value Quality highly and at times can be a purist. Incomplete jobs are loans with high interest (see Technical Debt).

comment Access Apache22 server installed on guestOS(FreeBSD) from Host(Win7)
Sounds like something in httpd.conf is off. Can you scrub and dump it to something like pastebin.com ?

comment Access Apache22 server installed on guestOS(FreeBSD) from Host(Win7)
What exactly do you mean by "can't get to my index.html". Does the browser time out? Do you have a proxy configured for the browser? FreeBSD's default configuration has no firewall, did you have one enabled that you disabled, what exactly do you mean by "disabled my firewalls" in relation to FreeBSD? How was Apache installed? Did you change it's configuration at all?

Everyone, please remember that you weren't born experts, everyone learns at some point. Please be nice to those who know less than you do.

The whole first half of your suggestion seems to have been done already. The whole second half is exactly what the OP is asking.

You want to "digitally sign" individual packets... For why?

Sorry, but that's definitely a different problem from what the OP describes.

comment BSOD on Hyper-V guest Windows 2008 0xCA
STOP )xCA = PNP_DETECTED_FATAL_ERROR (ie a Driver didn't load properly that Windows thinks is essential to booting). The installation is likely borked, try booting a Windows Setup ISO and repairing.

@R4D4 Yep. Answer away. Also, if you're answer is decidedly more complete feel free to mark it as the correct answer, or not; whatever you think really.

comment Installing to an iSCSI target and booting it without PXE
@R4D4 Pat has certain biases and insights due to his involvement with his own PXE software product (which he isn't mentioning as it's caused some troubles in the past). To clarify one detail, I use iPXE in production and have for years without encountering any bugs, unpredictable behavior, standards issues, or major frustrations. The documentation could be better.

comment Installing to an iSCSI target and booting it without PXE
You have to use iPXE, a hardware iSCSI NIC, or equivalent to boot Windows from iSCSI. PXE is used for booting over BOOTP/TFTP, not related to iSCSI.

What NIC? Are you running a recent build of iPXE (I know they added several NICs during last year's SoC).
