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).

IIS Rewrite is not the same as Apache HTTPd's Mod_Rewrite - The former blows, hard.

comment Reverse DNS records not registered when using DHCP
I don't have a setup convenient to test, could you try enabling the GPO Computer Config > Templates > Network > DNS Client > Register PTR records and see if that has the desired effect - I'm thinking it might not, but worth a shot.

comment Reverse DNS records not registered when using DHCP
A friend not on SF said: "That's normal, PTR is only updated by DHCP in Win2K+". That doesn't exactly seem to be the case from your experience, but might be close.... I'm trying to dig up a better reference.

comment How switching off SSLv3 in Courier-IMAP server affects old Mail User Agents?
I don't think you'll find a list of software that breaks ask it would include a lot of software nobody uses anymore. I wouldn't be surprised if OE6 breaks, as most XP era software doesn't support TLS. In the case of OE6 I would highly recommend them upgrading to a newer MUA like Thunderbird or even Webmail of some sort. At some point you do need to stop supporting ancient software because of the vulnerabilities it creates. Communicating this fact to your clients is critical to them understanding their responsibilities.

comment All my harddrives are around 10 MB/s read/write
Sounds a bit like a misaligned partition or tiny inode size. What's the output of tune2fs -l /dev/sdaX | grep Inode (replace sdaX with one of the drives, or the volume if using LVM)

No, he's indirectly asking if you're running into the Hairpin NAT problem and don't know how to describe it.
