comment lsof runs very slow in my server
If it is still slow, then I would probably run it with strace and see if I could figure out why it was slow.

comment Can't SSH to any servers
If you really suspect mtu as being a problem trying pinging it with the no fragment options set and the packet size at the maximum for that network.

comment Can't SSH to any servers
Is any other communication working to your servers? Can you ping them, can you use any other services hosted on them? Not sure why you would jump to a conclusion about mtu settings. Are they on the same layer 2 network as you or is there some kind of router/firewall between you and them. Do you see anything wrong on the servers if you login at the physical console?

comment bash: variable increment does not occur
It really isn't clear to me at all what your script is trying to do, and what you intend. Can you spend some time adding some comments or something. Or can include your trace output and explicitly point out exactly where the error is happening?

comment How to block an ip range in Firewalld
I haven't used firewalld, but have you simply tried providing a cidr specification? 115.239.0.0/16?

comment Is turning off ARP a common practice?
On layer 2 networks that require ARP, having arp be disabled would break pretty much everything. ARP is not required on serial links, so it wouldn't be enabled or disabled there.

comment how to prevent fake mails from being sent on my mail server?
Anything the IT support dept would be to do - Are you not the IT support Dept? If not go ask them. While you are at it spend some time reading about email.

comment What's the difference between .0/32 and .1/24 in CIDR?
So 10.0.0.0/32 ... So in effect, this single address means any address in the range 10.0.0.1 - 10.0.0.255 - Why the heck would you assume that? Why do you think it would magically snap to a 24 bit mask, instead of a 8, 16, or some other random sized mask? There is no magical expansion.

comment Clear the arp cache on linux, really
@MichaelMartinez because xy problem. It seems likely that question isn't the root problem and there might be some underlying problem that the OP should be working on instead.

comment How risky is storing credentials on disk in a Powershell SecureString?
Here are some links about how it works. Not sure if you can call it secure or not. technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/ff714574.aspx - msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms995355.aspx - thomas-franke.net/powershell-manage-passwords-credentials - Of course this all probably boils your question down to the new question. How secure is the Windows Data Protection API?

comment How risky is storing credentials on disk in a Powershell SecureString?
@HopelessN00b I don't think your analogy works. A PSCredential is encrypted is such a way that it 'should' only be usable by a single user on that specific computer. It isn't like that cash, which you can just pick up an walk away with. IE you can't just boot to offline media, grab the credential file and be able to use/decrypt it.

comment Ubuntu Router to connect two networks via IPv6
How are you expecting machines on the Windows subnet to know how to reach/reply to machines on the Linux subnet? You shouldn't need to push any routes to the devices behind the Linux router. I bet it is routes on the Windows subnet that is your problem. Have you tried doing a tcpdump on the outside interface of your router? I bet your pings leave the router, and replies never get back.
