    Being Port Scanned and ISP will not help

    I'd agree with you on "welcome to the internet" but I wouldn't say "it's a waste of time to read firewall logs."

    rsync two directories on seperate disks on the same host

    If there was anybody that came across this thread looking for an answer, well... I haven't found one for rsync, though I did find this neat little tool, JFileSync. It is really simple and easy to use and has a GUI.

    rsync two directories on seperate disks on the same host

    Server works internally, can resolve external DNS, but cant ping or get to pages?

    Firewall rules. Chances are, how you "get into" the network, there are rules that allow you only that way... and the firewall is blocking direct external traffic going to your server.

    Security-wise, is it okay to have a file server and router in the same box?

    alright, if you're defending against bots, then fine.. I'll give you that. Though, you can easily mitigate SSH bot attacks by PermitRootLogin = no, and iptables rule sets

    Security-wise, is it okay to have a file server and router in the same box?
