    Juniper switch for home use?

    The EX2200 will do static routing without a license, it's just dynamic routing (OSPF) and other advanced features that requires a license.

    terminating fiber

    I've watched our field techs terminate fiber. I wouldn't say it's hard but I would suggest getting at least some training first if you really want to do it yourself.

    Post Your Connection Speed

    Nope that was from my house. CFU 1G/500M service. Mind you I work for them and have been testing from home. Also used a Ubiquiti EdgeRouter Lite when I ran that test so it was behind a router and through NAT. I don't like it's interface much so I went back to my Soekris and OpenBSD for now. Also...

    Router for gigabit WAN (Not NAT)

    I don't know if Juniper is out of the question, but the MX5 (license restricted MX80) might work. Includes 20 1G SFP port MIC and full scale L3 license. That said still going to be 10-20k.

    Shoretel VOIP vs Digium vs DIY

    Anyone looked at Cudatel? It's based on freeswitch which was started by a developer that didn't like the asterisk development at the time (years ago) and started his own project. Barracuda hired the guy and made a product around the software.

    Should 10gbe sfp+ 850nm be able to interface with 1gbe sfp 850nm?

    Like Nicklebon said Optical must match specs on both ends. While the two sides can talk auto-negotiation protocols, they can't run at different speeds or duplexes. You need to get a second matching optic of the type you want to use.

    Cox ISP: Gateway changes when removing router

    They used a netblock from a different parent allocation to expand space in the DHCP pool. Nothing odd at all about it. A DHCP pool doesn't have to be contiguous.

    weird patch panel punchdown question

    It's not 2 per port, the top is odd port and bottom is even port, at least that's how it's labeled. The punch down side is much wider then a single port, so it goes two for two. This is normal for the patch panels I've used.

    Pinging Multiple IPs

    nmap is probably the best tool I can imagine for this. use the -sP (for scan style ping). If you want a persistent ping I would look at Smokeping.

    Nope, IHS will be part of the Chicago connectivity for transport. I work for CFU. Wow, I've seen lots of your posts and never suspected you were in Iowa. This is the first Juniper gear for CFU so I'm not surprised you didn't suspect us.

    Recommend a couple AP's

    I just got a UniFi AP, have only had it for a few days though so I can't say how reliable it is yet. How ever the price is nice but would prefer something that uses standard PoE.

    Poll: Who do you trust with your DNS on your home connection?

    For everyone using outside DNS providers, you should keep in mind it can change the results you get for Akami hosted content. Akami uses a mix of BGP and DNS query source to determine where to send requests. For example if you use google DNS from the ISP I work from you get directed to an...

    SMTP server for Windows?

    I would advise against it, and check if they have an SPF (sender policy framework) DNS record configured, if they do you're mail will probably just get tagged as spam. I would ask if they provide SMTP on an alternate port with authentication, 465 with SSL is pretty common, as is 587 (submission)

    pfSense VLAN question

    That actually depends on how you do things. If pfSense is the gateway for each VLAN, then all traffic between VLANs goes through pfSense. The only way around that is to use a switch that supports inter-vlan routing. This means it's going to be a pretty expensive switch. I actual do this at home...

    If you don't want exploits I would stay away from webmin, it's had it's own fair share. Might look up ISPConfig, I've heard some good things about it.

    What Type of Server do I Need?

    If they want it to be realistic, you should start looking into PCI compliance. Depending on what kind of transactions you handle and the type of information you will store you might find you have some pretty stiff requirements.
