The server will basically run sshd, apache, ftpd, NIS, NFS(all /home NFS
mounted from the server), squid, pppd, and may be samba for our college
lab with 40 PCs. Also, it will be routing between 2 of our labs and the
Internet (will have some IPTables scripts to filter).
Will MDK10.0 ok for this ? Any other suggestiongs ?
The "ageing/outdated" Debian Woody will do a unbeatable job. Infact
your installation would typically consume <200MB of disk space. Contact
me off-list if you need a custom Woody CD that contains all the software
You should also plan for a bit more redundancy and scalability by
offloading some services to another machine. Also from a security
standpoint, it would be better if you delegated routing/firewalling
to a different box.
Btw, consider adding a local DNS cache to your list of services and
invest in RAID or atleast mirrored HDDs.
Did anyone notice any problem with reiserfs in MDK9.1 ? In 2 of our
machines, the file system got messed up (some files missing, some with
unrelated content, etc.) after few power-cuts.
Get a UPS.
