comment Accepting SAML token from third-party to allow access to our RDweb application
It looks like RDWeb is served via IIS. I would hope then that any authentication provider that works with IIS would work with RDWeb. One such authentication provider is Shibboleth.

comment How to change the name and description of an AWS EC2 security group?
...only works with VPC instances, "classic" instances can't do this.

One reason to not use a VPC is because you can't without starting up a new AWS account. :(

comment Practical Anycast
It's somewhat misleading to say that TCP is not suitable for anycast. As long as the routing doesn't change during a TCP session, you will be fine. In typical usage, the routing doesn't change often (e.g., not ever, except during an outage or maintenance). For many applications, TCP sessions are short-lived. "Classic" web technologies typically used short-lived HTTP connections, for example, although newer techniques may leave connections open longer.

comment SSH Tunnel not working
To be clear, for the ssh client to accept the tunneled connections, it has to have successfully built an ssh connection to the other side. At least with openssh. So the ssh connection is at least partly working. I'd be looking on the client's machine to see what's happening to that traffic. Turn on debugging in the sshd logs, and use -vv on your local ssh command, for starters.

comment iptables hashlimit memory usage: What is the difference between --hashlimit-htable-size and --hashlimit-htable-max
Yes, I understand the idea of a hash table - I want to know how that data structure maps for my application (and in general). The documentation is very sparse.

comment Moving from HP tape library to IBM compatibility
It would probably be useful to explain what kind of tape drives are used in each library.

comment Limit incoming connections using iptables per IP
Beware when you read the mauromascia.com site. Near the beginning when he talks about how connlimit isn't appropriate in his case, he is flat wrong. The connlimit rule he shows applies only to tcp packets with the SYN flag, which means new connections, which was all he was really trying to limit. He also presents a "solution" which includes several iptables rules that will never be matched, except by INVALID packets, which isn't what he wants. Note that I am not saying this answer is wrong - the OP's question here is well addressed by hashlimit.

comment Ubuntu DHCP Server not assigning itself an address
You say you're not convinced it's not possible to do this - fair enough. I don't know for sure. I do know that the answer to that other question is appropriate - this isn't standard practice, and if you manage to do it, it'll be a crazy kludge. Give your DHCP server a static IP. it's not clear that you need dhcp at all - if you have just a few machines, static IPs may be better.
