We achieved exactly what you're trying to accomplish with virtualized Endian Firewalls. The product runs on CentOS, so you'll be familiar with the underlying OS, and it provides out of the box site to site VPN connections using OpenVPN. It supports both routed and bridged modes. In your case site A would act as the VPN server, and site B would act as the VPN client.
He dropped them from his to do list?
He was carrying them around and dropped them?
Slang for "He published them" ?
He dropped them from his research list?
He dropped the vulnerabilities from his own systems?
Apparently "Slashdot" means to "Slash" the English language with slang. Can we please "DROP" the amateur reporting styles?
It won't matter at all because the verbiage is a metaphor, and like all metaphors they require interpretation. The anonymous user could easily argue that Hadley took his metaphorical comment out of context.
"Hadley is a Sandusky waiting to be exposed. Check out the view he has of Empire from his front door."
Sandusky Ohio is a city with one of the largest collections of roller coasters in the world. Clearly the anonymous comment was trying to convey (metaphorically) that Hadley is on a wild roller coaster ride who views everything he sees from his front door as his empire.
All that we really know is that Hadley is extremely sensitive to free speech, and he is willing to throw excessive amounts of money at a problem that doesn't really exist. Sounds like he's going to be a great role model for other politicians as the chairman of the board of Stephenson County, Illinois.
