comment Initiating VPN connection from VPN server
If you can't get that port on host A then there's you're sunk unless you do the common host as Dan C alluded to. What are you trying to accomplish? maybe there's a better solution.

comment Concurrent NFS access
Who said anything about FTP? Files that are potentially modified by multiple people at similar times are best controlled by a Revision/Document control system. NFS isn't going to be any better/worse then CIFS/FTP/SFTP, it's usually up to the app to "lock" files or otherwise notify users that someone else has their dirty little fingers in a file.

comment Roaming Laptop accessing CentOS LAMP Box - Security Concerns!
@Chase, either is good, they are similar in that they run on the same port and kind of act the same as far as transferring files goes. SCP is supposedly faster, but SFTP lets you emulate a filesystem among other things.

comment Precached Windows Logins?
In bpfinn's case, he would have to do this with what sounds like a number of machines. In my case, it's an existing user with an exiting machine. Changing their password is what I do currently, but it can/does inconvenience the end user.

comment Precached Windows Logins?
I'm very interested in this question as well. Just yesterday I shipped a replacement laptop off to a user offsite. We had to reset his password so I could cache them on the machine before shipping. I'd love to know a way around this.

comment How to get internet access in a Windows 7 virtual machine
Virtual PC is creating a virtual networking and NATing your VM's through the host. I'm assuming it creates that random 192.168.131.0 subnet to reduce collisions with more common home subnets. VBox does the sames. You are expecting it to bridge, which will give you a "real" address on your internal network. VMWare does this by default. I don't know if you can configure VPC this way.

comment VirtualBox on existent Vista/Ubuntu dual boot
I did this successfully with Ubuntu and XP. You will probably want to use Windows as the host, otherwise it will want to activate every time you switch "hardware", but there are ways around this. Needless to say, it would be best if the OS's are on different disks to help the IO bottleneck.
