comment What causes newlines to be stripped when a buffer is flushed to a full ext3 partition?
There's still a heck of a lot of older systems in the field where it's infeasible to upgrade. Unfortunately I don't have access to a lot of newer systems for testing this. I was just throwing it out there to see if someone knows what's going on off the top of their head.

comment What options are there available for securing data transfer within a semi-private network?
Thanks for the edit, I didn't know about KAME. ipsec-tools.sourceforge.net seems to be a good starting place, and that led me to: lartc.org/howto/lartc.ipsec.html
