comment Resolving DNS queries for two disconnected, private, networks
I don't believe that script has the effect the OP is looking for. It will append the DNS servers from the remote side to the resolv.conf automagically. I don't believe it will do anything to make the resolver try one of the alternate DNS servers if the record doesn't exist on the first.

comment Custom password policy for Moodle
It is open source. In a worst case situation you could simply build this functionality yourself.

comment Notepad/Edit equivalent for Linux command line
I think it is easy to say lots of people have take the opportunity to build text editors a simple search of any package repositories will show you that. Most don't use Windows Notepad as an example of something worth emulating.

comment how can 192.168.2.10 talk to 172.18.156.65?
You really need to take the time to figure out the physical topology, where the routers, and how they are configured before you started trying to guess what routes should go where.

I can't find the reference anywhere, but I am almost certain I found a page describing where you could get a count of sessions via snmp.

If course that is assuming that lsof or the kernel hasn't been patched by the unauthorized process so it won't be displayed.

comment Server chmod logs
@Webnet, on some systems a command like grep sudo /var/log/auth.log should show you all the sudo usage.

comment installing a mail server to be used with PHP
MTA = Mail Transfer agent (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Message_transfer_agent) -- MDA = Mail Delivery agent (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Message_delivery_agent) -- The sendmail is one of the oldest *nix MTAs. It included a binary that almost all other *nix MTAs emulate that allows you to send email through a command. Exim performs both MTA and MDA functions, so with exim you get what you need. As for how to send via PHP, I like to use PHPMailer (stackoverflow.com/search?q=phpmailer)
