I am a scripting language connoisseur, regular expression aficionado, network geek, general lover of Linux and a frequent contributor to open source software. I transitioned to programming from other work because I was too busy automating my own work environment to actually do the other work. I have a hobby interest in cartography. For more see my personal site. Most importantly, my life is defined by the grace of God given to men through Jesus Christ. It is my ambition that everything I do would reflect His glory and point people towards Him.

Can you try re-wording your question? I can't make out what you are asking.

comment is site to site better than vpn client?
Site-to-Site is a vpn client. You would need to be much more specific about the technologies you are considering and your scenario in order to get a useful answer.

comment 256 Color Issue when using GNU Screen inside GNU Screen
I still use screen on a regular bases as a long time user, but it's definetly mothballing. It works but it's also broken. I find more and more things I have to switch to tmux for and always recommend anybody just learning switch now rather than later when they have problems! Scripting and configuration for tmux is also much more pleasant.

If they have your machine going out to download code, it's already too late. Blocking OUTGOING traffic is something you do while you cleanup after a compromise, not something you do to protect yourself.

StackExchange style QnA sites to not work well with checklist style questions, and "starting another one" makes things worse not better.
