I had a question, Connect two subnets on Linux, which is not solved yet. But user TomS has done many constructive attempts to solve it. Which does give me a direction where to search further. I would like reward him for that. How can I do so, because the question is not solved?

    You reward the user by voting his answer up, indicating that the answer was helpful, instead of of indicating it was unhelpful and voting it down. If the answer does not solve the problem it should not be accepted. If you accept the answer, that is an indication you solved your problem, because of the answer. – Ramhound Dec 2 '15 at 14:11
  • Thanks. I tried, but it requires a minimum of 15 points – Bernard Dec 2 '15 at 14:14

    You will have to wait until you have 15 reputation points in that case. – Ramhound Dec 2 '15 at 14:16
  • You'll get to 15 points with one upvoted question or answer, or accepted edits to improve two posts. – fixer1234 Dec 3 '15 at 0:54

    @Bernard Optionally once you have enough reputation, you can start a bounty and award him with it. (if you're feeling extra nice) – Insane Dec 3 '15 at 21:33

    Essentially the point is that an answer can be helpful without solving the problem. An upvote just means you want to highlight that the answer has relevant value, it's not required that you only upvote 'correct' answers. – SuperBiasedMan Dec 11 '15 at 14:55
