I have a working PPTP VPN with very specific routing requirements that I need to replace with OpenVPN due to issues with our ISP, and I am having issues adapting my Linux routing table rules to OpenVPN. [more inside]

I'm not going to be doing much with this. I already have a NAS so this won't be a file server. I just want it to do a few things such as XBMC, OpenVPN server, Squeezebox server, etc.
It's going to be on 24/7, and I don't want it to use much power. Since it is isn't going to be doing too much, I don't want too spend much.
I tried the Raspberry Pi, but it doesn't have enough power. It can run one of these applications perfectly, but it can't run much more at the same time. Same with an old PogoPlug.
I was thinking about one of these: Beaglebone Black
? An old Dell Mini 9
If anyone has any ideas or can tell me about their low powered/low cost server, I'd appreciate it.

I am trying to setup a router with DD-WRT & OpenVPN so that I can stream content from Netflix/Hulu etc. when living outside the US. However, every time I connect to the VPN service my PC connected to the router loses internet connectivity. [more inside]

I've set up an OpenVPN VPN on an overseas server as a way of getting around the Great Firewall of China. It's working, but is considerably slower than paid services like Witopia. I'm a total n00b when it comes to this sort of thing and am wondering if the speed issues are a result of the configuration, or if it's just the way things are. [more inside]

My VPN in leaking DNS requests. I am clearing out DNS entries on non-VPN interfaces using netsh, but Windows keeps using DHCP to automatically refill the DNS information. Microsoft lists a way to do it in Windows 2k/2k3, but that registry location doesn't exist on any other Windows OS. I need to do this for XP and Vista also. How can I automatically disable DHCP from doing DNS updates using programming (not telling users to do control panel navigation)?

My girlfriend has expanded her theater management business, hired some employees, and wants to have a file server, have a firewall, and have remote access to the office network. Can I do all this with a Dell PowerEdge 500Mhz PIII? If so.. [more inside]

Best way to perform this Active Directory black magic? Our company has dozens of Windows terminal servers at remote locations (client sites), and we need a way to centralize Active Directory. [more inside]
