Though OpenVPN strongly suggests certificate based auth for clients, it isn't strictly required (--client-cert-not-required). You can skip that, and use some other (weaker) form of authentication.

comment How to setup multiple OpenVPN connections on a server for a single localhost app to use on CentOS 6.5?
I did mention LXC as an option, which should work on a single EC2 instance. Ignoring that you basically falling into the multiple wan setup, with each VPN acting as a WAN link. See: lartc.org/howto/lartc.rpdb.multiple-links.html

What you are describing sounds very much like spammy/scammy behavior. Trying to route things per application is a big PITA. Sticky with your EC2 setup, or going with LXC, or some other VM/container type approach would probably be a lot easier.

comment On IPv6 linux router, autoconf and accept router advertisements for single interface
Ah, interesting, the IPv6 howto seems to be out of date. It doesn't show '2' as being a valid value for accept_ra. I wish Google would show the kernel does you linked to higher in the search results.

comment Can I trust windows 2012 regarding the amount of installed memory?
If you are really worried I suggest you run something like memtest86 on the machine. If memtest86 shows all the memory and tests it as good, then the chance of a problem is very low.

comment Signal delivery system for routers
BTW, I sure hope you are planning on doing this over https, and not http. It would be trivial to intercept and modify your http requests/replies, and if your router is running commands based on this I would basically own your routers.

comment crontab truncates file path
I know it doesn't really answer your question by why not just use cat file | crontab -u root instead? crontab will accept data in stdin if no filename is provided.

comment using multiple network cards to increase a server's total bandwith in a LAN (windows)
Hopefully your backup system is multi-threaded, or multi-process? If your backup process is only performing a single backup at a time in series, then link aggregation really will not help. Most link aggregation methods distribute connections between team members by address/port. So a single transfer between two hosts won't go faster, but you can have multiple connections running at a time. But that wouldn't matter since the the machines you are backing up will still not be able to saturate more than a link.

comment Configure subdomain godaddy and use an existing CERT
Your certificate needs to be valid for every domain you are serving. This might be done through a wildcard, by setting up alternative names (SAN).
