Three paragraphs is what I shoot for. Tell them who you are, how you found the position, why you're interested and what sparked your attention/what made you think the position was good for you in the first paragraph.
In the second paragraph, pick 2-3 requirements/expectations/qualifications...
I know you're not intentionally trying to stiff anyone, but that's quite a laundry list of things to do. It's worth significantly more than $75-150.
That could easily take 8+ hours.
If I were you, I would really look into getting cPanel or something like that. That will do everything...
My first guess would be that your ISP is blocking 222. I would try moving to another port and seeing if that works.
If that doesn't, check to make sure that you don't have any software firewalls or anything blocking the connection.
Unless the receiving server does an rDNS checkup. The majority of them do, and when a server named 'sever1.domain.com' is trying to send mail, and the reverse DNS points to something like dhcp-xx-xx-xx-xx-provider.com, it's not going to accept the mail as the PTR record doesn't match.
I would say definitely go with Linux unless you have a concrete reason not to. If you're familiar with Linux (and you say you are), then why even consider Windows without a need for something like Exchange/some other MS only product?
Set yourself up a nice Linux box, you can use Samba and...
I concur. This isn't a first level networking final, and if it is, that instructor should be beaten.
That was the final I had in my 2 year CCNA course(s) when I took it back in high school. It still kicked our ass after 2 years studying the stuff.
If you don't have another router, you're probably not going to get a ton of use out of it. The 2501 only has one Ethernet port (as I'm sure you're no doubt well aware), and thus, can't be used in modern day networks without a bit of ... caressing? Like the previous poster said, I would...
My obligatory net send fun was along the lines of
Needless to say, it caused quite a panic with our 'media specialist' (read: librarian who has a Mac at home and thinks they 'know computers'). I don't think they ever figured out what was going on with that one.
Are you playing MP3s? I haven't really kept up on it, but a few weeks ago, some people noted the fact that while playing MP3s (in fact, I think it's any time there is sound going to the sound card) that network performance will drop by about 90% on Vista. Pausing doesn't work either, it must...
I suppose it's possible that the server disallows concurrent connections from the same IP address to prevent ghosting/etc.
You may be able to get away with hooking a switch up before your router, and having one PC come off of that, assuming your ISP allows for multiple DHCP addresses.
Wait, what? 'Locked your IP address?'
I think you're mistaken. This doesn't sound like someone decided to maliciously deny you internet access.
Are you simply unable to get an IP address from your provider? What is the output of ipconfig? Do you get an error message when you try to...
You'll need to contact them again, as they're likely the only ones that can do it. It wouldn't be Network Solutions; it would be the company who owns the IP block you're using.
If they don't understand PTR, maybe say rDNS, reverse DNS, pointer record, etc. If they still don't know, you...
All a firewall is is a stripped down computer (in a sense) with applications that run on it to direct traffic based on rules.
This is what all of these suggestions do. It's really quite simple, in fact - you'll need an old computer, and two Ethernet cards. One of them will plug into your...

Yeah, sorry for the confusion.
Fedora is fine, if that's your bag, but at least go with 6. I personally prefer CentOS (if we're talking RH based flavors), but quite a few people like Fedora. The newest version of Fedora is 7, but 6 is still supported. I believe 8 is coming out soon, isn't it?
Did you put your DNS servers in correctly in Windows when you set your static IP?
That's probably your best bet. With your computer set to 'obtain an IP address automatically', open up a command prompt and type:
There will be an entry for your DNS servers. Note their...
Add another vote for Linux, however, please don't use Fedora Core 5. It's been end of lifed.
Get yourself a copy of CentOS 5 or 4.5; it's basically Red Hat Enterprise, but free. It's also designed to be a server, while Fedora is also used as a desktop.
