comment How to use pfSense as a firewall in order to assign url whitelists to IP groups
You should almost certainly be using an web proxy/filter to do http filtering. Trying to do http filtering at layer 3 just doesn't work. I believe pfsense will run squid/squidguard just fine, depending on your hardware.

comment Method for setting up Volume Shadow Copies on Server Core
The 'answer', for me, was was to use the GUI from a server OS, since the workstation OS doesn't include the feature, and the other options are a pain. Yes, I know this doesn't exactly answer my question as written, but this is the 'answer' I used to the problem I was having, which I thought others might find helpful.

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?
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 Openvpn Packet loss troubles
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.

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.
