Question The best server softwarethat is GNU/GPL?


What is the best software that runs on linux for DHCP/DNS? Firewall? Web? Proxy? Radius? Ras? Snmp? and and what version of linux? I am upgrading my ISP from Wincrash NT to Linux. and I have used Samba for a few years. I really value the expert opinions of all those that know about linux then me. Thank you for your help.

there are many distros and normally you may choose one that you will feel comfortable with. I have used RedHat for many years and there are peoplr that hate and there others that love it. I think for backend and stability servers I may have to go with Slackware stable.

DNS=bind
Web=apache
Proxy=squid
Ras= ( I would rather use a VPN try using Freeswan it has ipsec and everthing)
Firewall=iptables but there are lots of other like smoothwall,etc
DHCP= linux has it on system buy default may have to config files only

chow
