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 Where is the statement of deprecation of ifconfig (on linux)?
It's not part of Linux now. It started life in Linux when Linux used the BSD IP Stack (ifconfig is a part of the BSD IP Stack). Linux wrote their own IP stack around 2001 and wrote their own ifconfig as part of net-tools for compatibility.

comment Do some network administrators assign MAC addresses with an unassigned OUI?
Administratively assigned IPs should always have bit 7 set, and unicast should have bit 8 unset. 'd' in 'deadbeef' violates both of these requirements. The first character should be '2', '6', 'a', or 'e'. Perhaps 'ab:ed:ca:fe'? More ideas datagenetics.com/blog/march32013/index.html

Is that where Poudiere is keeping it's copy of the ports tree? It doesn't like to share by default.

This will not work as it's testing if BATCH is defined at all, not it's value.

comment Possible to emulate an IGMP querier in software?
Eugene, You seem to really struggle to type sentences that say what you mean, go back and read what you've left, it's full of sentences that don't make sense. Your Answer doesn't actually answer your Question as it's written. Server Fault is for Professional Administrators (et al) only, not programmers (if you wanted to know how to program a IGMP Querier then you should have said so and this would have been migrated immediately). Similarly if you just wanted to know if Snooping could be fooled by any random Querier then you should have said that. You seriously need to work on your communication skills

comment Possible to emulate an IGMP querier in software?
Ok, but your question is about your L3 Switch Routing multicast traffic. None of this has anything to do with that. Without IGMP the switch should just fall back to broadcasting the multicast traffic and letting the clients sort out where it's supposed to go. This is obviously less than ideal, but should work fine unless you've got bandwidth problems. If you don't have bandwidth problems then I don't see how this is even a "real" problem in the first place. What am I missing here?

I'm aware of the terms. But I fail to see how you're going to get multicast working on a network where the router does not support IGMP.

comment Program Files(x86) not being interpretted right on Win7x64 when not running as local admin
@dartonw The value of that variable changes depending on if the program is running in native 64-bit mode, or in WoW 32-bit mode. This program is probably not checking that variable correctly and has it hardcoded somewhere in the program (likely in a place of no significance, and simply doesn't care if the folder doesn't exist, but throws red flags if it can't access the non-existent folder)
