Mandriva as a Small Business Server
Hi Mandriva Users.
Any comments on using Mandriva as a small Business Server??? We have a ClarkConnect 4.1 Gateway, File, Mail & Proxy Server with 6 windows xp clients. The server also runs Hylafax with two ext modems and the clients use Cypheus for faxing.
While CC is very good the lack of a GUI means we need tech support when it is not always available in Papua New Guinea. CC recently wanted USD75 just to advice they are not able to assist!!
I have just installed Mandriva 2008 on a pc and it accepts our Sata Hdd, Maxtor ext usb Hdd, USB flash, and a NIC all that CC has a problem with. I am learning Linux very slowly and the Mandriva GUI is a big help.
I have yet to test Mandriva with a dual serial port card (2 x ext modems).
What have I missed out???
Appreciate comments from anyone who is using Mandriva in a similar environment.
