comment How to safely capture or duplicate incoming requests to a web server
Both answers are of good quality. I'll choose @NickW's answer because ngrep allows the use of convenient regular expressions.

Could you please comment on the output format of ngrep? I'll be trying to replay the requests on Windows.

comment How to assess how much a Ruby/MySQL server can keep up?
Thanks. You didn't however make any comments regarding the high mem usage. Is that safe? If I'm not mistaken Linux will consume all RAM before going to swap for active processes but only 50MB free RAM sounds pretty dangerous to me. Thoughts?

comment Accessing other VPNs networks through a VPN connection
Thanks for the update. The data center will be figuring out the site-to-site VPN. I guess it'll be IPSec. I'll commment back when this is up - it's taking some time...

comment Accessing other VPNs networks through a VPN connection
Thanks for the elaborate response. We'll be moving to a new server setup soon which will allow us to do site-to-site VPNs so I guess I'll wait for that. Let me ask you - when this happens, and our servers (we'll have two) will be on a site-to-site VPN with the customer site(s) - how will I able to be part of that from home? Do I just need to dial-up into our side of the VPN and get an IP within it? Please edit your answer with this additional info so I can select it as the right answer. Thank you!

Ugh. I guess you're right. Unfortunately my home router won't allow VPN pass-through so I'm stuck for now. Thanks

RDPing defeats the point really - I'd have to install all my developer tools on the server, which doesn't make sense. It's a normal Windows dial-up VPN.

There will be more VPNs on the server in the future, and my home router doesn't supported VPN pass-through. Do you have a better suggestion?

comment How to setup a reliable SMTP server on Windows Server 2008 R2
OK so I did what @DanBig suggested - MX, SPF and PTR entries are in place - now I have to wait for DNS to propagate and see what happens right?

comment How to setup a reliable SMTP server on Windows Server 2008 R2
Thanks for the answers. Not sure what it is you're saying is missing from my post. I have some web apps on the server that need to send e-mail and I don't want these e-mails to get caught in spam because SMTP is not set up correctly. I use hMailServer to do SMTP.
