comment setquota fails silently
Thanks for the war story. I probably should have mentioned that this is the first thing I tried. I didn't think it was relevant as all the symptoms persisted after I deleted aquota.user and recreated it. I will update the question.

comment Variable as command; eval vs bash -c
I think the OP wants to compare bash -c with eval not exec.

comment no network connection
Is it possible that CentOS uses another naming convention for Ethernet interfaces? My Fedora installation calls the Ethernet interface p5p1 whereas my Debian installation calls it eth0 (same interface).

comment What can I do if I got locked out by cphulk?
@terdon Seems that cphulk is a tool to protect against brute force password guessing. See the answer. I think this question should be re-opened.

Does your directory contain only files? Is your target location on the same filesystem?

comment Looking for an advanced Linux podcast
@MisterB I truly don't understand your aggressive attitude. You seem to be new to the Stack Exchange community, and that's OK. What is not OK is how you react to someone explaining to you the posting etiquette around here. Gilles (who happens to be one of our gurus by the way!) was pointing out that this is not a typical forum and that there are some kinds of questions we tend to avoid here due to their lack of specific and reproducible answers.

I think an easier way would be to figure out if your router supports text-mode configuration via telnet and try to automate that.
