How to enable VPN over ICMP / DNS in SoftEther VPN

Or where is the damn VPN over ICMP / DNS setting in SoftEther Because the infrequent times I need to install a SoftEther server I seem to waste half an hour trying to locate this setting. BUT, it's already enabled by default. Well enjoy this tip and if this has helped do thank me by following me on twitter @danielsokolows .

CloudAtCost Buyer Beware

March 14, 2014 Update - I have sold am selling my 'Developer 3' for life instance See performance stats below and email me at 'cloudatcost-dev3-for-sale [at]' if interested.

Starbound Dedicated Server Setup

Setting up persistent Starbound on Debian Starbound is a Terraria survival/build like game set in space. Based on watching few videos and playing it for a bit I concluded that except for the over abundant life and loot on every planet this game appeals to me very much. And so along with my server I have decided to run a 24/7 dedicated one for Starbound; below is how I did it. Get a dedicated Debian linux server If you don't have yet a linux server I recommend going with Linode Xen VPS hosting - the basic first package will suffice. I have been with them for over 5 years now and can not say enough good things about them. Yes, there are chepaer alternatives out there but heed the warning that you get what you pay for. With the basic package I am able to run a Freeswtich VOIP server, Minecraft, email, and few websites. Their setup instructions are solid so use that to provision a Debian 7 instance.
