comment Using My VPN connection when traveling abroad
So instead of asking the people that know everything about how your computer is setup, and how the VPN is configured, you are going to ask random people on the Internet? How are you expecting us to know? Perhaps your VPN has some geoip filter on it or something. Perhaps you are only whitelisted for specific networks... Seriously, talk to your IT department, serverfault is not the place for random end user questions.

comment Why aren't failed attempts using ssh keys only logged?
Why are you worried about it? If your system is on the network, people will try to connect. There are questions on this site that you can search that have answers about blocking or minimizing lots of incoming SSH attempts. You can get more information from SSH if you bump up the log verbosity, but you will also get lots of log information that you won't care about.

comment Can su - <user> but can't ssh to <user> on RHEL
add a -vv to your ssh perhaps so you get more useful verbose debug output about what is failing.

comment How can I ignore dots in incoming email addresses with exim?
See the various local_part settings of a router. There is probably some way to do this.

comment Cannot renew Public IP address SSL certificate. Any alternatives?
The only thing that I can see docs for being blocked is for reserved IP addresses (eg 10/8, 172.16/12, etc). digicert.com/internal-names.htm Which shouldn't apply to you, if you actually have a valid non-reserved IP in you cert.

comment Cannot renew Public IP address SSL certificate. Any alternatives?
Do you have a link to documentation saying this cert type cannot be renewed? The answer of course is that you probably should have phased out your public IP cert and redirected the day that document was released instead of waiting until the last minute. Unfortunately, I don't have any good suggestions for you other than to get the new cert in place and transitioned as fast as possible. BTW I am asking for docs, because Globalsign seems to still be offering these. support.globalsign.com/customer/portal/articles/…

comment Can I detect hardware RAID infromation from inside Linux?
adds an answer explaining how to figure out which RAID controller is being used from inside of Linux - @IQAndreas but that isn't in the question. Answers on serverfault should be answer the question being asked. If you Have a different question you should edit your question. That question could almost certainly be answered yourself by a few minutes on Google. Anyway the answer to that is lshw.

comment RTNETLINK answers: File exists — OpenVPN errors
If my answer doesn't help, you probably will need to add more details about what isn't working, and what route is failing to be added by OpenVPN.

comment Linux's /etc/init.d - symlink, hard link, or actual file?
If your startup script isn't in /etc/init.d, then where is it? AFAIK no stock Debian package puts any symlinks in that folder. Can you give an example where you have seen this? I have never seen the setup you describe.
