    your opinions regarding server setups


    I'm running mandrake 10.1 and I have installed apache and it is running. my goal eventuallyis to have an in house web server, local fileserver, email server, and public wifi hot spot server for the store.
    I just wanted the opinions of more knowledgable users on how I should handle these tasks.
    I downloaded a CD-based linux distro called "zoneCD" that handles the wifi users logins
    etc. and figured I would use a seperate machine for this.
    what modules,tools,additional programs, etc. would you suggest to realize these other tasks. I also need to be able to monitor and restrict web access to certain machines.
    we are a small cooperative and will have very minimal use of everything, using the email and fileserver the most.
    your input is much appriciated, as I am very new to these processes.

    thanks!

    Mandrake makes filesharing easy. Look in the Mandrake Control Center...there's a module for enabling file sharing; after you enable sharing, you can literally just right-click on a folder and click on Share.

    For the mail server, well, there are a lot of options. Do you want groupware or straight email?
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.
