comment Find DES encryption key having input and encrypted output
Beat me to it. I wasn't sure at first as I haven't seen the DES format in a long time (was expecting a $). Note to OP: you can test it in python. First do "import crypt" then "crypt.crypt('kenanfx', 'csund')" and you will get "csund6XMTudO6" back. 'csund' is the salt in this case.

I'm confused. Is it encrypted using DES, or are we talking unix password encryption using DES?

comment Are there any reasons for using SSL over IPSec?
The end of the article talks about why you would want to setup both an SSL VPN and an IPSec VPN. It doesn't talk about when you would use both at the same time. I think (though I could be wrong) that the OP is looking for use cases where you would use both IPSec and SSL at the same time.

I'm not sure this is what the OP is looking for. He asks about using IPSec and SSL at the same time. This article is about using an IPSec VPN vs SSL VPN.

Well technically from the first country to your home the connection would be encrypted with IPSec and SSL. When it reaches your home country, IPSec is removed and only SSL remains.

comment Are there any reasons for using SSL over IPSec?
Sure. Say I am in a different country and don't want my internet traffic snooped on. I can use IPSec to tunnel the internet traffic back to a server in my home country. Once that traffic leaves that server in my home country it will no longer be encrypted. So I use SSL to connect to, for example, a web mail server.

comment Crack Unknown Encryption
@SQB I'm a mod on crypto. This sort of question would be off-topic there. We don't accept request to analyze or decrypt data for someone.

Your options are captured by this comic. Personally I would choose the one on the right. You know where your friend lives, right?

comment Store a password to avoid user interaction
AFAIK, DPAPI does not lock "down to either the user or application" unless you consider the use of optional entropy as locking a blob down to the application. The DataProtectionScope options are CurrentUser or LocalMachine. If additional entropy is used and that entropy is known only by the application, then you could consider the blob tied only to the application (until the application is reverse engineered).
