A really curious guy about technology in general. Main interest: Security, how to break, and how to defend yourself from them. You can't defend what you don't know.

comment Synology Server. Bipolar ports and connections are driving me insane
If the synology works as it should be when accessed locally (within the LAN) then at least we know the Synology is not the issue. Maybe some connectivity issue from router / firewall in between the incoming connection and the synology.. but I don't know where to start looking .. sorry.

comment Synology Server. Bipolar ports and connections are driving me insane
So how are you connecting to the Synology Server? Using the Local IP address (192.168.1.100) or using the public IP? (If using your public IP, have you set up port forwarding correctly)

comment Reroute traffic between two web servers
If your 'live site' goes down, do you mean the actual server goes down? Or just the content? If just the content, you can set up a Redirect Page on the main page of your Live Site to your mini site. If the actual server goes down, you can temporarily change your mini site IP address to use the live site IP address. IP switching may still includes some down time, but may be faster (testing required) than your hosted firewall .

comment Synology DSM4.3 with Kerberos and NFSv4
There is an entry for Kerberos in "DSM Help" under "NFS Service" - If you open DSM Help and search for Kerberos, NFS Service has some information about mapping Kerberos Principals to local user accounts, with a note below it to map kerberos to existing domain/LDAP account. Hope that helps.

comment Synology DSM4.3 with Kerberos and NFSv4
Based on my experience at my workplace, Synology can become an LDAP client and use the LDAP information for login credentials (username and password). It is located under Control Panel - Directory Services - LDAP. Just need your LDAP server details. Just give it a try and enter your LDAP details. If it fails you still can login using the 'local' synology username and password.

comment How to convince a big boss that he does not need administrator privileges?
That is the only thing you can do, and have a 2nd admin account on the laptop, which I hope still working when the computer is considerably hosed. Beyond that, install Anti-spyware and Antivirus which hopefully will give him enough warning before clicking those "I Love You" Emails.... (or other stuff)

comment what's a secure way to send passwords over the internet?
This might sound odd, but why since someone recommended Skype and calling them, why not SMS the password over? (assuming the other side has a mobile phone, but hey who doesn't have a mobile phone nowadays?)
