Are your SqlServer services configured to use users that are in the right SqlServerUserGroups and have the needed rights?

comment SSH painfully slow on my local network?
What are the MAC addresses of your guest and host(s)? Where are you sshing from and to (from the windows host to the centos guest?)?

Looks like that certificate is valid under the older specs but not under the newer ones though it's just a bit over a year old. The best thing to do is generate a new key-pair, new certificate signing request, get the new cert signed (or self signed) and move on. In practice this certificate is valid under older specs and so most software will accept it. AFAIK there is no risk with the serial number being negative and most likely it was just generated by out-dated software (Windows).

comment How do I know if the network im inside allows me to use ssh?
I don't know what you mean by this: "My server can accept ssh locally but I can't ssh externally". Do you control the SSH server? Can you ever connect to the SSH server (meaning from a network other than your university)?

There is a direct way. The direct way to do it is to inspect the router and firewall configurations that are managed by your university and ISP. Do you prefer the direct way or the easy way :)

comment backup-rsnapshot / rsync filling backup dir up to double the size of the original drive
How big are those files on the original? Do they change frequently? How often are you running incrementals? How big is the backup drive? Do you really want the --delete flag??

Any of the timestamps or other headers that were added before it got to your trusted server (say gmail) might be forged.

I disagree. I think the only headers you can trust are the ones put in by your MTA. The reason being that one can include all the headers they want in a session - for example I can connect to your mail server and submit a message with headers i forget on behalf of google, hotmail, the whitehouse, then back to google - the only thing that will be real is what your server records about the session [came from my IP at the time your server observed].
