For what it's worth I think Ron does a great job keeping the signal-to-noise ratio managed. The reason you see so many closed questions is that there is a lot of noise - a seemingly never-ending stream of people who don't understand subnetting, students copying and pasting homework questions, etc. My observation is that there tends to be observations like ...

Was hoping to reply to this earlier, but this is the first chance I have had to finish my answer (so I apologize for what may now overlap Ron's answer as well). Please consider that part of the reason your post is not on topic here is that it does not fit in this community so both the number and quality of answers you will likely get here are not what you ...

To be clear, 'network engineering' typically is about designing and configuring networks, not building network devices. Your question is mostly focused on server design/configuration and programming. There are other stack exchange sites for that: https://serverfault.com and https://stackoverflow.com. These specific topics are off topic here, so I can follow ...

It is not that I am having a bad day. The decision on what is on- or off-topic here is a community decision. An off-topic question is placed On Hold for a few days to give the author a chance to try to edit the question to be on-topic, if possible. If nothing happens with the question, it will automatically delete after a few days of inactivity. The ...

You forgot the one caveat: "under your direct control (if the network is not under your control you will not likely be able to provide the information required to answer your question)." Also, the different LTE carriers do things differently, so there really isn't a one-size-fits-all answer. There are also other reasons, such as CGNAT is for personal ...

I reopened your question after your edits. You have a couple of misconceptions: Can we agree that VPNs aren't really used in home networking? (You know besides Network Engineers practicing for production networks.) That is incorrect. Many home users use VPNs DHCP is basically layer 3 with a little layer 2 involved via ARP. That is incorrect. DHCP is not ...

I would like it if we could move questions to more-relevant Stack Exchanges as an alternative to closing them. I think that might help with user frustration. AFAIK Super User is a good section for all the home networking questions we see, several per week. What's the reason we're not able to move questions as part of the moderation process? Can this be ...

If you go to the main page of Network Engineering the majority of the questions are always closed as off-topic. That is because they are off-topic. Should we just ignore the site rules? It was closed because there's no paid support from the upstream vendor. That's sad. We all know that Mikrotik is heavily used on enterprise networks, and it's very big on ...

The question is not about a host configuration, but why the SRX won't learn a MAC for the secondary address(es). Get past the word linux, already.
