Dump NT run linux! Actualy I haven't had this much fun since my first 128K
PC. Windows has made me lazy! Linux simply makes my brain hurt, or maybe I
need to check my reading glasses.
I have a dsl connection to the Internet that is feeding a NT box runnig
proxy 2.0. My other 3 machines are running 98 and several will continue to
do so. I would like to find a secure way to share the dsl line, supply email
like exchange, local storage for the 98 boxes and of course the same for
Red Hat Linux workstations.
I guess I'm looking for suggestions about proxy vs Masquerade? Should users
pull mail directly or should I run a mail server for local storage? Can I
use an old 386 as a firewall and do i need to? What about all the little
internet toys like MP3, Realaudio and Icq? Samba for file access? I would
love to build a "free" solution to what NT is now doing for me.
By the way Red Hat Linux 5.2 was a cake walk to install on my Toshiba
