I'm wrestling with a decision in setting up a
web/gopher/sendmail-listserv/ftp/wais+gsql+sql-freeIngres server off of a
56kbps pipe to the Net.
The pipe speed limits everything of course. Hence, specInt's may
not be as critical as simple disk I/O performace. I'm not looking for
anything spectacular. However, cost/benefit I'm looking at either a
Linux box with 100Mz DX4 and fast-wide SCSI II versus a slower Sparc 1+
with an accelerator chip (from Minicomputer Exchange-Sunnyvale) but with
One factor is the abundance of compiled Internet apps for SunOS
4.x such as NCSA httpd, freeWais, freeIngres etc.
Thanks in advance!!
