I have the need for this VPN to be able to be connected to from six remote locations and networks as well as three roaming laptops. I have been banging my head up against the wall trying to accomplish this with no luck although I consider myself fairly skilled when it comes to learning new things. I am a bit new to the VPN world and I apparently can&quot;t learn as I go on this ordeal as I&quot;ve had no luck as of yet.

    Hi Nick1, We own and maintain our own Linux, red hat server. We have approx. 70 websites running on our server. Our memory usage is 674.3 MB out of 2.0GB and our Disk space usage is 37.7 GB of 141.5 GB. We installed the server approx. 6 years ago. Over the last year as our websites and traffic has grown our server isn&quot;t running as well as we believe it should. We have frequent very high-load times, have to restart mysql frequently due to sites not loading etc. We are basically looking for a consultant to look at our server and give us suggestions as to what we can change, add, etc. to make our server run as optimal as possible. We are also looking into upgrading some of our software such as plesk, Mysql, php versions, etc. but are very hesitant for we don&quot;t want to crash our existing websites. We design websites and do programming but server maintenance is not our specialty. We are based in St. Louis and our server is co-located in rented rack space. We would like some advice on how to optimize our server. Then after you have initially assisted us we could hire you on an as needed consulting basis. Have you done this before? How many servers have you worked on? Please let me know if this is something you could help us with. Thanks, Nicole KollerGraphic ArtistIllustrated Man, Inc.SAINT LOUIS, MISSOURIp 314 863 7770 x21f 314 863 7785www.illustratedman.com

    I&quot;m having a problem with Plesk Billing 10 (Customer & Business Manager). When a customer goes through the order system they select a username and password for their web hosting package. This package then gets created in our Plesk Panel and the customer gets sent the login details. The problem is, the account is created with mixed login details. The username and password they specify in the order system is correct only for the billing panel. The Plesk/hosting panel and FTP login is different. The username will have 6 random letters added to the end (E.g they pick username Test. The actual username is Testtuarco.) The password is then completely different and looks like it&quot;s still encrypted.The ideal situation is that the plesk panel will have the correct login details that the customer specifies.
