'Router has a minimum of two interfaces' instead of two IP's would be more correct.

comment Password lifetimes, length, complexity and history. Is there something to help?
Slack doesn't do PAM. Or it hasn't done it in the past, I haven't played with it in a while. You can always test your shadow file with John the Ripper and some wordlists.

comment Alias to twisted server content?
There is no limit on how many times one content can be served out. There is however a limit of one daemon listening to one (or more) ports and not sharing them with any other daemons.

comment How can I prevent that a server admin can see data?
Even in SELinux if you're root, you can do 'setenforce 0' and you're free again. In Trusted Solaris you don't have one root, you got four of them, with 'partial' powers of traditional root. Good idea, but it's kinda difficult to get anything done, if you need multiple people executing different commands.

comment Favorite Unix command line aliases?
Storing passwords in scripts like this is potentially dangerous, unless you got it 600. Also upon execution your password goes to history file--also potentially dangerous.
