The address 2001:41d0:2:XXXX::/64 has an all-zero host part - And what is the problem with that? It seems to work fine for me?

@piernov that should probably be an answer.

comment ethtool error for limiting interface speed
See: unix.stackexchange.com/questions/28198/… You probably should be looking at TC, or something else.

comment I cant open a port iptables - The command runs, but port keeps closed
Is something actually listening on that port? What do you see with netstat -ntlp?

comment GNU screen detached cannot write to file after ssh logout
What kind of authentication do you have in place? Are your home directories encrypted, auto-mounted via nfs or something else?

comment openVPN file transfer speed
Well looking at your iperf results in the other direction you seem to be getting somewhere between 0.7-1.5MB/s of bandwidth. Which seems to match exactly the numbers you state in your first sentence. BTW your use of the term download in this question isn't very helpful. The direction of data flow wasn't entirely clear from your question.

What happens when you perform your Iperf tests the other way around? Remember that iperf is not bidirectional by default.

comment Is it possible to add permissions to an Active Directory account using PowerShell?
Creating a group really is the best way. You really should avoid adding permissions directly to an individual account whenever you can.

comment Reverse Proxy multiple internal FTP Servers
Why ftp? Why not SSH/SFTP? SSH is more secure, and easier to get through your firewall.

comment Puppet change mysql datadir only if it is installed first time
Why are you creating a new mount at /mysql That is not a standard location, anyone using the FHS would look for something. I would expect data like that to be under /var, or possibly /srv/.

comment iptable rule and iftop command
Call your ISP, and have them block it on their equipment. Think it through. Your server cannot decide to block/permit something until it has already arrived. You of course could just turn off your server, then you won't get any packets.

comment iptable rule and iftop command
Depends on what you mean by 'stopping'. If someone is flooding you with packets they will still be delivered to your system. An iptables DROP rule prevents your system from doing anything with the packets, once they have arrived.

comment iptable rule and iftop command
What command are you using when you say tcpdump doesn't see it? What interface are you looking at? Details matter here.

comment Powershell script to change local admin password
Read the stuff inside the <# ... #> again. It all seems pretty clear to me? What part are you getting stuck on?

comment Powershell script to change local admin password
Did you actually read the docs in the script? .PARAMETER EncryptionKey - A password to encrypt the TSV file with. Uses AES encryption.. EncryptionKey is not the password.

comment Debian wheezy to jessie update hangs during boot - setting up x socket directories… /tmp/.x11-unix /tmp/.ice-unix
Have you tried booting into rescue mode? It should be one of the options at boot time.

comment No space left on device error
I don't know postgres, but if you are using standard packages, I highly doubt it is storing data under /etc.

comment No space left on device error
Why is /etc 3.7GB? That is an unusually large size for /etc.
