comment Simplest possible VPN to Amazon EC2 instance
@Howard: PPTP does not work as it relies on a separate protocol to TCP/UDP (GRE, protocol 47), and you cannot route that protocol to any AWS instance.

comment WAMP different sites on different ports accessible on LAN
Your rule to serve C:\site1 would only trigger if you are accessing that port and addressing the server as 'site1'. You're addressing it as '192.168.1.100'.

comment What is the least expensive gateway for Amazon VPC?
The Cisco ASA doesn't support BGP, so it's not a suitable device for the Amazon VPC with hardware VPN.

comment Max number of viewers for different types of Flash Media Server instances
As I understand it, yes. RTMFP connections have a peer-to-peer component, so the amount of viewers isn't (as) limited by the processing power of the server.

comment ./configure error installing PHP with Kerberos support on Ubuntu
libkrb5-dev should be all you need. You can check you have all the build dependencies with apt-get build-dep php5-common.

comment iptables -P FORWARD DROP, good or bad?
In that case, you shouldn't expect to see any packets on the FORWARD chain (try -j LOG if you want to be sure you are getting one), and can DROP if you wish.

comment iptables -P FORWARD DROP, good or bad?
Nitpick/help for better understanding: FORWARD is a default chain, not a table.

comment How would I build an LDAP query for AD that returns all users in a particular security group whose accounts are not disabled?
I am aware of that, but I wanted to point out to any future people who might find this page, why sysadmin1138's answer was incomplete.

I'll give an answer, as it's too complicated to put in a comment.

comment Software RAID10 for later growth
@Aaron Brown, can you link to these demonstrations? Not to {{cite}} you, but it would help to understand what circumstances you are referring to.

You should do a bitwise AND on bit 2 for 'account disabled', rather than checking the userAccountControl value in total; other bits might be set.

comment How can I speed up SQL Server queries on Amazon EC2?
EC2 allows you the flexibility to quickly test this kind of thing based on your exact workload. I would use that option if I were you! :)

Initially an exact duplicate of Load Balancing in Amazon EC2 with multiple CNAME - I have previously edited the other question to tidy it up.
