Should I get a Linux box?
In short: Yes! ;)
1) Would I be crazy to run a server from my house? Anyone else here do it?
2) Would I need a separate firewall, or could I use a software one running on Linux?
3) My box at work will soon have a fixed IP address - would that mean I could securely connect to the box at home?
4) There are plenty of sub-100 pound PC's in Loot around the 300Mhz mark - is that a suitable box?
>(perhaps even run a Shoutcast station).
I believe it's written by a monk, but I'm not sure.
>One of the main things I'd like to do is have access to my home files while I'm at work - I don't reckon I'd bet getting many hits so a slow machine would be fine.
kind regards and good luck,
Sure there's more than one way, but one just needs one anyway - Teabag
