Do you have a local or public server at home?


Right now it's someday. My computer is acting as both a desktop and server. My plans is to get a refurbished 1U server and put freeBSD or openBSD.

It will be a local server acting as a samba, rsync, ssh and media streaming server. Maybe a mirror too so I can do a net-install from my server.

Yes, aside from running my website, the server also handles local file storage and DNS.

I'm configuring my laptop as a tor relay, which is the closest I will come to using it as a server.

I once dreamed of building a rockin' and rollin' AMD dual Opteron home server running Slackware, but with the drop in the cost of hard drive space, I can easily have three terabytes on three separate drives on my main system. Who needs the server at that point? I can still network my individual systems to access my main system. The days of the home JBOD server arrays are pretty much moot now.

I have a simple nfs, time, dhcp, and backup server.

Nothing fancy, it's a Compaq Presario S33000NX with AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2600+ with 1GB memory and two hard drives.

Got one in the basement, similar to chrisretusn's, setup just a basic file, DNLA server. (Just bought a 1TB drive for it yesterday! )
