comment No route to host centos
Man pages are your friend. ipset.netfilter.org/iptables.man.html see the delete chain rule.

comment No route to host centos
Your iptables -N rule is creating a new chain. Chains are processed and then passed back into the main rules. So in this case your NRPE rule passes that traffic into the NRPE chain, which does not have an accept rule. By default it will drop traffic.

comment No route to host centos
On the client side (the server you are telnetting from) post the results of route -n. You could have a routing table issue. If you stop iptables on the destination server, can you connect? Also note with NRPE you need to configuration authentication but that should not stop you from connecting to the port.

comment Yum does not install specific RPM version with custom repo
You may have a naming issue. You may want to compare package information between two packages using rpm -qp in your repo. I don't see why you would get this behavior without a repo data, package naming or corrupted RPM database.

comment rkhunter warnings - whitelisting
What version of rkhunter are you using? Make sure you do not have multiple copies of rkhunter installed. I've seen issues when you install from RPM and source and you end up with different configuration files. Check /usr/local/etc and /etc/ for config files.

comment What are the pros and cons of using S3 as a data access server?
You may want to rework your post into how to use S3 as a configuration management system. As it is worded, I think we will end up with a debate about configuration management - which would be off topic.

comment dig & nslookup can't resolve local hosts unless I specify the (local) DNS server to use
Appears you are querying different nameservers. Appears 142.3.102.202 does not have any A records configured for the domain. So I am not sure where you are managing records?

Do you have a nameserver running on your localhost?

comment Tool to analyze postfix maillog
Sometimes I have to recursively grep for this. Extract all lines with the desired to/from pairs, extract the message IDS then grep again. Pretty easy to script up using grep/awk/sed/while loops.
