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 Monitor traffic with endpoints
None of which makes those other questions "good" or "on-topic". We just haven't found them yet in order to throw them onto the heap of question to be dispatched appropriately. Please see: blog.stackoverflow.com/2010/11/qa-is-hard-lets-go-shopping

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Please do keep in mind that specific products references and link lists go out of date.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 Monitor traffic with endpoints
Product recommendations are not appropriate for StackExchange as the information provided is much too ephemeral to be useful for others.

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.

comment HP Proliant DL380 G5 setup issues
ServerFault is for questions for interesting and challenging Information Technology problems in a Professional setting. If you need help with your hardware, you should talk to the vendor or Google for replacement parts.

Nice work on that.

The problem is that you didn't demonstrate the results from troubleshooting your problem. That's primarily what questions are judged upon here.

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 Puppet-dashboard with two CAs
Lots of "supposed to" and "how could it" in your comments and question and very light on details like configs and stacktraces/network captures. Try using some network analysis, debugging, and process tracing tools to determine what's actually going on and show us you simply aren't mistaken about your config and environment behavior.

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.
