    Between the hours of 12am to 6am on Tuesday, Nov 16th for about 20-30 minutes the server will be taken down for a remote software upgrade.

    So I'm guessing the server upgrade went ok, right?

    Weird. Sounds very unsecure.

    naw, its not insecure.

    the way most co-lo facilities operate is like this.
    basically, all our control panel for the server resides on a seperate box... the main server controller server. i guess you could compare it to a domain controller. 128-bit encryption logs you into that box via the cpanel software. from there, that ssh's onto our box passing through the DMZ.

    its actually a pretty good setup.

    cuz how else would i be able to login to my server to reboot it if its down? lol

    Yeah, I know. I'm just giving you shit. I always use a multilayer setup to run my servers when I do run them. :)
