comment IPSec for LAN traffic: Basic considerations?
@joeqwerty, The closest I've come to this is an office that I used to work at where the guest wifi connections in conference rooms only allowed VPN traffic on them. This forced visitors to tunnel all traffic back to wherever their home and prevented things like port scanning or infecting other devices on the network, as well as wasting our bandwidth surfing porn or whatever (they still could, but it would be tunneled back to their home office, which most people aren't willing to do). I haven't done this on my own networks, but I've considered it, and know other people that have too.

comment IPSec for LAN traffic: Basic considerations?
It isn't a crazy idea at all. Encrypting everything is something that many folks have considered, particularly those is secure environments. AFAIK, this is one of the driving reasons behind including IPsec in the IPv6 spec: so all endpoints can encrypt all traffic. @chris_l, I wish you luck and hope you decide to do it. Please share how it turns out.

+1 for raising this interesting question, and for pointing out that we shouldn't take reports like this for granted.

Thanks @Warner. Yes, I know QMAIL itself isn't limited to FreeBSD, but I was specifically recommending Matt Simerson's toaster instructions which include a significant number of add-ons that address the things the original poster wanted. QMAIL isn't perfect, btw, for example I believe it still will open up a new connection for each recipient even if they are on the same domain (thus producing many more connections than necessary).

comment Is there a way to do something like LVM over NFS?
Reading about this kind of hack makes me feel diiirty. But not necessarily in a bad way. I'll have to keep this in mind someday when I try to do something just as crazy.

comment Forwarding port 3306 on Mac OS X in order to connect to a remote MySQL Database
Is your remote host configured to allow forwarding to other hosts? Does it have a firewall? Is 3310 used on the local system (you can check with netstat -an |grep 3310)?
