How to build a home web server with ftp, file sharing, and some other stuff?
My project is to create a web server that will contain a web based proxy(to bypass censorship), ftp so i can access my file where every i am, act as a file host on my LAN, host a web based msn client and a web based torrent client.
I am using a old IBM thinkpad T21 and i have Slackware installed. I tried ubuntu but there are to many problems installing it.
My first problem is setting up file sharing. iv tried so many times with different configurations in Samba but i still cant get it to work.
I also dont wont this server on all the time. So i would like to put a wake on lan script on a different website that will turn on my server when i want it on. i know this is posible but i just dont know how.
I will be able to set up the rest i think.
