    Depends on the question. You haven't really given us much to go on. – Seth May 19 '14 at 21:21
  • Can you say that in general I can link to one question if you want but need a red line I think not so difficult to depict that line – Mohammad Reza Rezwani May 19 '14 at 21:23
  • No, I can't really say for general without a more specific example. If you're running Ubuntu though the question should be on-topic here. I don't know anything about network engineering though. – Seth May 19 '14 at 21:24
  • this link is an easy question but I think this link is good. like to read your opinion and suggestion : askubuntu.com/questions/469241/domain-name-in-dhcp – Mohammad Reza Rezwani May 19 '14 at 21:34

    Brief aside... I think your example question would have gotten more upvotes if it had been worded/formatted more clearly. I tried to help with that ;) – RobotHumans May 19 '14 at 21:57
  • thank you very much :-) – Mohammad Reza Rezwani May 19 '14 at 22:00

    networkengineering is still in beta and mostly focuses on Enterprise network solutions(i.e. Cisco and Juniper) and the configuration of said routers, switches, firewalls, etc. IMHO, we shouldn't be re-directing folks to a beta site when most of the Ubunutu specific question can be addressed here. – Kevin Bowen May 19 '14 at 22:45

Short answer:

Yes, I like it on AskUbuntu.

TLDR answer:

If it deals with configuring a network service on an Ubuntu machine, it could easily be asked in either place.

That said, I like the idea of putting the question on AskUbuntu. Why is that the case?

It's simple.

We used to get questions like that much more often. It's refreshing to get a good question that might be helpful to Ubuntu users that are doing configuration

as opposed to

troubleshooting or incorrectly reporting bugs via AskUbuntu without first searching launchpad.
