Looking for wall plug-in Linux box that can be used as simple server


Hello Everyone,

Long time lurker here. I regret the fact that my first post is a request for information, but I am totally stumped.

A while back, I saw a photo of a small Linux server that looked like a laptop adapter (i.e., a plug, a cord, and a 2"x3"x8"-ish box). It was a very simple box that could be used as a server, with a network jack as the only I/O.

I have been looking for this type of server for days, and I cannot seem to find it using my usual methods. I want to buy one of these for my brother as a birthday gift.

If anyone has any idea what I might be talking about and can point in the right direction, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks,
Will

I think what you might be looking for is something based on the SheevaPlug design.

This is exactly it.

Being that the gift recipient is at the beginner level, I'll go with the TonidoPlug!

Thanks!
