comment Anyway to save Boot Prompt PassPhrase in local file for fedora20
This may be a silly question, but it you don't want to enter a pass-phrase on boot, what's the point of the encryption?

comment Pentesting from a virtual machine, hiding the host
You can't use a virtualised OS to do "Wifi pen-testing". VirtualBox will provide your Linux VM with a virtual WIRED adapter, no matter whether you bridge or NAT it.

Do you have any noteworthy routing tables or iptables rules set-up?

comment `login` from X session
Maybe I misunderstood the whole thing, but would a 'newgrp <group>' have sufficed?

comment What is the equivalent of telnet localhost 25 with ssh?
What are you trying to achieve? A "secure mail connection"? Connect to an ssh-daemon via telnet? Your question is more than ambiguous.

comment Is there a faster alternative to cp for copying large files (~20 GB)?
That makes around 29MB/s, which is pretty fast if you ask me. I don't think there's any command that will speed this up, the "bottleneck" is most likely a) the network or b) the file-server.

comment Is there a PAM Standard?
No. There isn't. Looking at your tags: the PAM implementation on Solaris varies a fair bit from Linux' (or the other way around, since Solaris' version is older).

comment Can linux systems on multiple virtual machines share the same swap partition?
@slm: Hummm ... that would suggest it IS possible. Not sure how that's supposed to work, though, short of Vbox creating temporary files for the immutable VDI to grow into as required, a separate one for each VM (which would kind of defeat the idea of having them to preserve space).
