comment VPN from Azure to AWS
I'd suspect there's a reason all the tutorials involve a VM running OpenSwan etc.

comment AWS ELB health check failing when trying to force HTTPS through NGINX for my single page application
@jouerai You'll want a server_name directive in the second block with the domain(s) your site runs on.

@jouerai Correct. Any other route hitting the IP directly gets a 404. All the other server blocks have a server_name directive.

I'd get a new hosting provider, then.

Did you set up the VPS? Are you sure PHP was installed via Yum and not compiled from source?

comment AWS : IP filtering with Load Balancer
Amazon's load balancers have security groups, just like EC2 instances do. You can allow traffic from only specific IPs if you want.

No, you'd get a new key.

comment Lost my key file when I generated the csr
No, a CSR can't be converted to a key. If you provided a file that includes a private key, a) your SSL vendor should've choked on the CSR b) you need a new key and a new certificate as the key is compromised and c) you need a new tutorial to follow because that one SUCKED.

comment Captive portal and SSL
@LucioCrusca This isn't a research service. Google "<operating system> captive portal detection".

comment Captive portal and SSL
@LucioCrusca Any OS or browser can implement this. Firefox doesn't appear to have done it yet. Windows appears to have implemented it on an OS level like Apple.

comment Can't login to internet through browser
Note that private IPs may be in a few other blocks of IPs, the 10.0.0.0/8 and 172.16.0.0/12 ranges.

comment 301 or 302 redirect for site which will have no content for a year?
@ChrisM If you know roughly when the site'll open up, you could consider putting an Expires and a Retry-After header on the 302/503. Or just put a week/month-long value in there so the engines keep checking back periodically.

comment Does changing default port number actually increase security?
@Pacerier Linking to your own comments as a "source" really isn't carrying much weight with me, nor are the points new. You say custom ports is indicative of a lax, "I don't need to do more" attitude. I say it's equally possible for it to indicate a "I've at least thought about security" attitude that's lacking in a lot of VPS owners.
