Or better, go ask them for a job since your place is too cheap.

comment AWS EC2: proFTPd Login Incorrect
This question appears to be off-topic because it is specific to this user's environment.

comment Port forward with iptables
You are correct. You'd probably also be surprised how many people would expect traffic from outside the box to work identically to internal traffic though, and would misunderstand that concept from reading these forwarding questions.

comment Forward Traffic in & out, NAT iptables
You are correct, but the answer I provided isn't just for you. I'd be willing to bet that 90% of the people coming into ServerFault via a search engine link to your question wouldn't read that particular nuance into the sentence you quoted.

comment Port forward with iptables
You turned on ipv4 forwarding in your sysctl.conf (and then reloaded) or in the appropriate location in /proc, yes?

comment Initate RSync From Webpage
Please do keep in mind that specific products references and link lists go out of date. Products come and go, and these links will go dead over time. Which is one of the reasons that product-heavy questions are frowned upon here.

comment Initate RSync From Webpage
Thank you for your input, DTK. The analogy is very apt as the use of remotely-triggered rsync for a production code deployment system simply does not scale. If you're particularly unhappy with the tone, you are free to flag it.

Hairpinning. It isn't all that scary.

comment Is Rsync like subversion, but for a server?
Ignacio is correct. Even --backup is not version control. It's still backups and you cannot simply revert to a given version automatically.

comment How do I disable the metadata lookup at cirros boot?
Please do keep in mind that if this question is considered to be concerning a non-Production use case, it will likely end up closed as off-topic here on ServerFault.

Telling you how to do basic tasks is not the purpose of this site.

And don't mind Shog9. He's said before that every question has been asked before anyway, and the logical end of that is just shutting the place down and walking away anyway. N00b for Quality Questions, not just Eyeballs and Clicks!

comment Very weird port forward on Ubuntu
IPTables doesn't list the NAT table by default.

comment Why is my nginx load balancer misdirect phpMyAdmin after login?
Try developing against something that you'd use in production. You'll find that the products you write will have fewer integration and deployment problems.

comment Is an Ethernet point to point connection without a switch real time capable?
True. Most of the Devs visiting here kinda go glassy-eyed at this point.

comment Is an Ethernet point to point connection without a switch real time capable?
I assure you, collisions occur in twisted pair media as well. Your answer is worded quite poorly and may give inexperienced the impression that the elimination of collisions is inherent in the media, not simply due to the connection being built.

Coax has nothing to do with the collision. The important part is the buffering in the switch.

comment How to free linux memory safely to improve server performance
Nope, John. This is the best answer so far. I think you need to re-read the question and think about the output from 'free' that was posted.
