ifconfig tells you all about the IPs on your linux machine.

I just finished up a guide that installs a Mail Server from scratch and provides webmail, spam scanning, virus scanning, pop3 and imap ... and smtp auth.

When I use the "ifconfig" command on my debian system it says:
bash: ifconfig: command not found

Is there someplace I can go to read your mail server guide? A link perhaps?

Sorry, 4-port router is correct. I used to have a 8-port hub up there that I replace with the gigabit switch.

All pc's are connected to LynkSys routers I had the server connected to it before so it was outside the firewall. That way I could plug in a pc to play games online without having a firwall problem. The way I understand it was anything connected to the Netgear was on the internet side firewall and anything connected to the LinkSys 4-port was on the LAN side of the firewall.

He had the patch cables labeled H and C.
H for hot (Internet) & C for cold (LAN)

I can console into the 678 router and get information off it if you need it. I'm not sure about the linksys, I'll take a look at that link you sent me.

Note: I just finished my second semester of ccna classes in College so I have a general idea of some stuff but I didn't do real well in the class (Only a C) so I don't understand it very well but I do understand some of it.

I'm sitting at an XP box connected to the LinkSys gigabit and here is what I get for a ipconfig:

I have a cisco 678 router bringing in my DSL. That is linked to a 4-port 10-baseT Netgear (EN104tp). That is linked to a 8-port 10-100 LinkSys (BEFSR41) router and that is linked to a 8-port Gigabit Linksys (EG008W) workgroup switch. These are set-up and running running my LAN.

Just how these routers are configured I don't know because I didn't set them up and the guy that did set them up moved out of state.

Setting up a mail server isn't really all that complicated. Why dont you just install something like Fedora Core or Mandrake linux and install the sendmail RPM package? It's pretty much set up out of the box.

I haven't look at the mail set-up part of it yet. I guess my priority is to get my web server up-and-running. The mail server part is secondary and I can play and learn that as I go.

I do some consulting work, but I think my price ($40.00/hr) would be prohibitive, since it would take several hours (probably 20-30) to setup e-mail, http and dns for multiple domains.
________________________________________________

Yea, a bit steep for this unemplyed person but thanks. It would only be one domain that needs to be set up though, I would muddle thru the rest after it was up-and-running.

Any ideas where I could find the best step-by-step walkthrus for doing it on my own? Any links come to mind? I've done some google searching and have found some good ones but I need one that is geared more for an absolute linux newbie.

I'm looking for someone to help me set up a web, dns and mail server using linux. I have Mandrake 8, RedHat 8 w/Bible by Christophr Negus and Debian "Woody" 3.0r2 to work with.

I am willing to pay someone $100.00 to walk me thru the process of settiing this up with enough security to keep the Spammers from using the mail server as a relay. If $100.00 isn't enough then how much? If you are willing to help me for less, How much? If you can walk me thru all the required setting you will have acheived your task. Payments will be made in intervals via Paypal as we progress.

I have DSL and I lease a block of 8 IP's from Qwest. I own a variety of Domain names registered with Network Solutions (Verisign)

I have a variety of systems to run Linux on and hardware adjustments are not a problem, within reason. I'm fairly computer literate. You won't have to teach me what a file and folder is but I am unfamiliar with the Linux OS. Don't get me wrong here, I have played with Gnome and KDE, I can set it up to get the internet with Mozilla, I've installed RedHat at least a dozen times, Mandrake twice and debian twice with out any real problems. I understand a terminal screen and command lines. I currently have 4 systems networked with windows Xp and 98. My server used to be running in the basement but it died. I'm fairly adept with Win 98 and I get along fairly well with XP. I have difficulty with subnetting and the like.

Serious inqueries only.

(If interested post here and we will get together via email.) I also have free minutes on my cell phone saturdays and sundays thru T-mobile so we can talk live one-on-one.
