comment VMware view for Remote Non Admin Users
Is this question about the "VMware View" product (vmware.com/products/view)? Or is it about "viewing VMware"?

comment Reinitialize /etc/profile file
@Dennis thanks for setting me straight, I wasn't really thinking hard enough about it. If the script being run sets variables, then does an export of those variables, those will be seen by the parent (shell|script), correct?

comment Wordpress Blank White Page for Login
don't blame yourself, blame Server Fault. It shouldn't have popped up on the main page if it is over 3 months old and the OP hasn't bothered to create an account here.

comment Reinitialize /etc/profile file
Yes, I suspect you could have run ". /etc/profile", but now I'm curious: what exactly did you try that failed and what was the error message? I thought your initial question was saying that "source" wasn't found, but now I'm thinking it was something else.

comment Reinitialize /etc/profile file
Did you do it with a space between the dot and the /etc/profile? That is what I was suggesting, and I actually learned that it is a shortcut for the source bash builtin with a question on stackoverflow (stackoverflow.com/questions/2518127/…). If you did it without the space, then you were basically just executing /etc/profile as a script, which will work just the same, if it is executable.

Out of curiosity, what are you doing that requires modems connected to your webserver?

comment very Slow machine when searching the network
-1 for suggesting random changes to NIC link speed without explaining what that means. I hate encountering systems that have their link speed hard-coded for no good reason because some engineer though it would be a good idea to try it out.
