Talking Linux Home Server HOWTO - Updated Documentation (FC5)...


All,

Just to let you know that I have finally got around to updating my Linux Home Server HOWTO for Fedora Core 5 (Current as at 18 June 06).

The HOWTO is currently 20 Chapters on the basics of Server installation, all the way through to setting up email, ntp, dns, dhcpd, samba, sshd, mysqld, nfs, ldap, cups, apache and squid.

The document is targeted at the home user who would like to set up a gateway server to share the home internet connection with other computer terminals, however you could easily apply it to a larger configuration.

The HOWTO is located at: http://www.brennan.id.au

Cheers,
Miles Brennan

Nice how-to, lots of useful info. I'd, personally, rather use a caching-only DNS server locally, however. There's a FC5 package called caching-nameserver I tried, but seemed to still require creating local zones, so never finished futzing with it (was just so much easier to do with Windows Server 2003). Anyway, still looking for a howto on setting that up properly. Here's the package info:

yum info caching-nameserver

Available Packages
Name : caching-nameserver
Arch : noarch
Version: 7.3
Release: 5.FC5
Size : 23 k
Repo : core
Summary: The configuration files for setting up a caching name server.
Description:
The caching-nameserver package includes the configuration files which
will make BIND, the DNS name server, act as a simple caching nameserver.
Many users on dialup connections use this package along with BIND for
such a purpose.

If you would like to set up a caching name server, you'll need to install
the caching-nameserver package; you'll also need to install bind.

Miles: It's been a great help. FC5 is still mystifying in that I cannot find dhcpd and samba even though they are supposedly installed. It was a forced upgrade owing to a RAID array that lost the plot and the need to upgrade from FC4.Oh well ... I'll sort it or trash FC5 for SUSE 10.

Many thanks for your great work.
