comment Forcing clients to get new IP Address from DHCP Server
I have add an answer, but feel free to add your own or edit mine with more details. I really don't use ISC-DHCP hardly at all. I was just making an educated guess about what might work.

comment Public overrideable DNS
What OS are your clients running that are 350ms away? Are they at a remote site or something? Can you simply setup another DNS server? Why does this need to be anycast?

comment Does windows server provide a standards-based NTP service?
The built-in W32Time service can act as both an NTP client and server. Of course if your Windows computer in a Domain, then you should be using domain-based type sync for your systems.

comment SFTP, limit download data for specific user
AFAIK OpenSSH (the most common SSH daemon) has no built-in rate-limiting functions. So you are left with trying to hack together something that will be executed after the user connects. You might be able to get pam to execute some commands when a user is authorized to apply traffic shaping rules.

comment Software RAID 10 not any faster than s/w RAID 5 on Ubuntu 14.04 box, why?
The results from his Bonnie tests shows the %CP as 99-100 on the tests for both drives.

comment Software RAID 10 not any faster than s/w RAID 5 on Ubuntu 14.04 box, why?
Have you performed your tests against a single drive? The single drive stats might be interesting. Did you notice that your CPU is hitting 99-100% on most of the tests? I am not completely familiar with bonnie++ what does your CPU usage look like during the test? Are you maxing out a CPU core?

comment What does push dhsp-option do besides “redirect-gateway def1”?
First, it would be helpful if you posted your full server configuration (without then standard comments/whitespace). Second, have you actually reviewed the man page? The description for the --server is pretty clear about what is going on in my opinion.

comment How to stop server sending spam out. Centos server with exim
@Halfgaar My experience with most people who ask this type of question is that they don't have good logging, backups or the ability to actually discover the full impact of a compromise. So the safe generalized approach is often the best.

server that appears to have been compromised - Turn it off. Reinstall. See: serverfault.com/questions/218005/…

comment Route traffic from one interface to another
Spend some time, write a question with more details. Network diagrams, client configurations, router configurations, traceroutes, etc. You simply have not provided nearly enough detail for anything useful.

comment 301 redirect without access to old server
Do you own the DNS records for the old name/site? Just point the DNS at a different server/virtual host and do all your redirection there.

comment Cant RDP if VPN IPv4 uses default gateway on remote network flag
Take some time, create a layer 3 network diagram showing which networks are used where. Past that routing issues are most often resolved by the proper use of traceroute, and packet captures.

comment Debian Secure Network
You really need to spend some time describing the what you want, and the problems you are facing in more detail. We need a network diagram here or something describing what you are trying to do. We need network addressing, and routing tables.

comment Powershell script not returning user last logon time
Now when I run it I get no output in this column at all. - Are you running it in the same security context? Did you perhaps forget to start your powershell session as a Domain Admin or something?

comment How to use ssh without knowing remote user's password?
@MaanitMadan do you own that machine, or are you responsible for it? Go to the machine physically boot it off the installer media. There is a password reset tool.
