comment cisco vpn client randomly disconnects with pfSense
No direct experience with pfsense, but could it be that idle connections are being timed-out? Do connections get dropped in the middle of active data transfers, or only after a long period of no transfer?

comment How can I change a partition mount to var and still boot up?
@David: fixfiles and restorecon are SELinux-specific utilities. Centos6 installs SELinux by default, whereas Ubuntu (AFAIK) does not.

comment How can I change a partition mount to var and still boot up?
David's procedure looks good. The only thing possibly missing is dealing with SELinux ... I think you'll need to run a relabel to fix up the security contexts. Look into the restorecon and/or fixfiles commands.

comment Changing the network address of a Windows 2000 AD domain
Yes, the router has multiple interfaces, and each network is (and will remain) a separate broadcast domain. My thanks to you and to @syneticon-dj for your clear responses.

comment Changing the network address of a Windows 2000 AD domain
Yes, the router has multiple interfaces, so traffic between the networks will be IP-routed (layer 3, not layer 2). Thus there should be no problem running separate DHCP on the two networks.

comment Linux: How to port forwarding with iptables between 2 hosts on different networks?
Just curious: How do packets get from S1 to S2, seeing as S2 has a non-routable address (10.x.x.x)?

comment backuppc exclude syntax (SMB)
Perhaps it could depend on the version of smbclient that BackupPC is using? I don't know. All I know for certain is that I've never had any luck using forward slashes for exclusions on SMB shares. For me, the only successful exclusions have used backslashes.

comment backuppc exclude syntax (SMB)
@Brian: So \\ProgramData\Application Data doesn't work? I must admit, I haven't ever needed to exclude subdirectories, so if that doesn't work, I don't have anything else to suggest, sorry.
