comment Sources for contract sysadmin work
If you have a specific question you could always ask in here. Check out the local LUGs. Check out to see if SAGE, LOPSA, or any other sysadmin group has any local user groups, and ask them.

comment Workstation “joining” a domain
Yes, but you still haven't answered the critical question. Is your new server a DC in the same domain as the old server, or did you create a completely new forest/domain?

comment Is it possible to have an external server within a company's firewall?
Not sure what they are asking you. Do they want the service to access internal resources, you may want a VPN. Do they want be in complete control of the hardware? If they want to host it inside their network but not deal with it, they may be expecting you to offer to contract to support the box for them.

comment Windows Server 2008: Terminal Services / VDI
I don't think there is any way you can do this. Perhaps you need a VDI solution instead?

comment What ports tend to be unfiltered by boneheaded firewalls?
@Sholom, security by obscurity is crap 99% of the time. In this case really all you have to do is take about 5 seconds to figure out what are the most common network protocols used on the Internet, and then assume those ports tend to be open for outbound access. If anyone has a firewall setup that assumes that an attacker is ignorant they probably deserve the problems they will get.

comment What ports tend to be unfiltered by boneheaded firewalls?
I am a bit confused about what you mean when you say 443 is dangerous? Can you provide a link for this? I know of a pretty large number of VPNs and other services that listen on this port.

comment Is there something like windows event viewer in linux platform?
I am sorry, but even under windows you cannot see all the types of logs with the event viewer. There are a large number of services and applications that create their own logs.

Just out of curiosity what is your motivation for this setup? Why do you need two routers?

comment CSMA/CD and CSMA/CA
If your wired network is still using CSMA/CD it is time to upgrade your hardware. In a full-duplex switched network collisions should be extremely rare.

comment Why is my rsync so slow compared to pure cp or even scp?
Did you delete the destination file between each run of you test? If the destination file already existed and the meta-data wasn't correct then it would need to checksum both the source and destination.

comment changing filesystem format from xfs to ext4 without losing data
Make a backup and restore. Any other method would not be used commonly enough to be considered safe. Oh, and for the record FAT32->NTFS was not always without problems.
