Meeting – August 10th, 2010

Meeting Topic: Small, Local Server Network Administration, What, How, and Why

If you ever go to set up a small local server, even for home use, there are many items that need to be attended to. We will touch on as many of these as we can, limited only by time and by participants willing to contribute.

For each topic the discussion should include a statement of just what the item is, why you need it, where it is configured or managed, and an example of the settings.

At this time the list of topics and topics leaders is as follows.

  • DNS – Jim McQuillan
  • DHCP – Jim Glutting
  • CUPS – Jim McQuillan
  • Apache Web Server – Gibson Nichols
  • Firewall
  • IP Tables
  • Mail Server, Postfix or?
  • NFS
  • SAMBA
  • Edifax

We are looking for volunteers to lead some of the sessions. Please feel free, encouraged, to add to the list and to volunteer to lead a topic. We envision a 10 to 15 minute session. You do not need to be an expert. Many in the group can supply detail to almost any topic.
