comment Access to a network server without port forwarding
@SdevDavid: Searching by the listening port on the Android device means you don't see any set-up traffic between device and router (or external service) prior to the establishment of an inbound TCP connection.

comment Access to a network server without port forwarding
@SevDavid: To find out what your WiFi IP-camera does, you'd need an 802.11 sniffer. Or plug it into an intermediary Ethernet switch that has port-mirroring (or use a hub). But see IGDP in updated answer.

@SdevDavid: And does that app use an external server that mediates the connection?

comment Is someone using my mail?
@Dan: Looks like Wikipedia:Comparison of SSH clients covers this subject pretty well. Since I'm not given an edit option for an answer to a frozen Q here, I'll leave it at that.

@Yaarrg: I'm no Tomcat expert, so there may be less disruptive solutions, but yes that should work. Also see Marcello Bittencourt's answer which would help confirm the cause of the problem.

comment Web Cluster with 10,000 connections
@Tom: True. I imagine that a typical quad-core Intel Xeon with SAS would do better but I didn't find benchmarks for that which relate to the question. Ideally, jtnire would set up his/her own benchmark test using something like apachebench or JMeter.

comment Force program to use only specific local port
@Shane: Web-browsers try to concurrently fetch multiple resources (images, CSS, JS etc) for a page. To do this they need multiple connections, each TCP connection to the same server (& to port 80 say) needs a different source port otherwise the individual connections cannot be distinguished.

comment Setting up a small webhosting service
+1 for reseller suggestion. I suspect some hosting services allow resellers to re-brand the service as their own.

comment Setting up a linux server of sorts and partitioning
To answer this set of questions fully would require a long essay. Perhaps it would be better to pick out one key question and ask that, or ask for recommendations on sources of information about partitioning.

I've never met an SSH client that couldn't access a different port.

comment “Chop lines” in `less` isn't working
Either you and the man page disagree about what "chop" means or your less is broken.

comment DNS timeout in windows domain
4% packet loss isn't catastrophic but it something that I'd look further into. To narrow down the point where packets are lost, I'd try plugging in a client at various places (maybe you have multiple ethernet switches between client and server) and - during acceptable sevice downtime - swap out patch cables at the server, use a different switch port etc.

comment DNS timeout in windows domain
I use ping to check for packet loss. try using larger packet sizes and larger counts e.g. ping -n 100 -l 512 dns.example.com (Windows) or ping -c 100 -s 512 dns.example.com (Unix/GNU-Linux).

comment socat connect-connect “proxy” two inbound TCP connections to expose a firewalled service?
socat has lots (really really lots) of options. I expect you need to find the right options to suit the needs of RDP. I'm not enough of an expert in socat or RDP to work it out easily. Have a look at dest-unreach.org/socat/doc/socat-gender.txt which is related to this task and the man page which I find moderately intimidating.
