I am starting this thread and leaving it open so people can post ideas guides. Please don't post answers in this thread, just come in and say "I would like to see a guide on ...." and maybe somebody will write one. Just because you float it does not mean it will get writen, I just throught it would be a nice place for people to get ideas.

Again, please just post ideas for guides here and nothing else, that will help make it easy and slim lined.

Jim,

Only Admins, Mods, and Support Specialists can post in the guides section ... would you like me to move this thread somewhere else like General Discussion or Tech Support?

We haven't had anything pinned in Tech Support forum in a while, and it's a high-traffic area, so, I'll leave a link in the Guides section, and keep the thread itself in Tech Support.

OK ... A guide that I think might be good is this:

1. How to obtain domain a name and register it. (How to point it to ZoneEdit.com if it is not a static IP.)

2. Setup a fully fuctional gateway server (Home / Small Business) that contains everything you need to make it do the following:

a. Be a Firewall (2 NICs, one connected to your cable/DSL modem ... the other to your internal network). Allow all your internal PCs go to the internet.

b. Be a Webserver. Serve pages for your new domain name.

c. Be an E-mail server for your newly obtained domain. Have Spam and Anti Virus protection and webmail.

e. Be a DHCP server for your internal Network.

f. Be a Caching DNS server (if you had to use zone edit) or your Primary Master DNS server (if you have a static IP) ... and be the DNS server for your internal network.

g. Be a Samba Primary Domain Controller (PDC) for your Windows computers on your internal network.

I am going to be working on such a guide ... with pieces of it already being done and posted here (the following are already done - Webserver {which needs some work}, the Mail server, the DNS server and Samba PDC).

May next part of it will be the DHCP server...then the firewall. Then a document to tie it all together.

I would be most grateful if somebody posted a comprehensive, step-by-step guide to setting up a Web server and ftp server (including getting domain name, what applications are needed, permissions and whatever else is needed). Or if there is already something posted out there somewhere, just point me in the right direction please.

Thank you

As a newbie, I think it would be good to see a guide on configuring a workstation, things like installing apps/packages and/or what apps/packages are the best or most recommended for different distributions.
Cheers

Hi All,

I would like to see a comprehensive Guide on setting up a Net-Net and PC-Net VPN using FreeS/WAN with CentOS. There is a guide using OpenVPN but that only covers the topic partially.

Great work on the other guides. It has really been helpful.
