Stack Exchange network consists of 175 Q&A communities including Stack Overflow, the largest, most trusted online community for developers to learn, share their knowledge, and build their careers.
I asked this question, but it was closed as off-topic.
I have a general question though; I think you should be able to ask any networking-related questions on Network Engineering - why not?
Because "any networking-related question" is not what was decided is on-topic for this Stack Exchange site.
See the site's birth information on Area 51 for how it was created, and see what can I ask here? for what the community ultimately decided was on-topic.
