Newbie: Building a File Server
I'm obviously new to this forum, and haven't played with Linux for about 10 years so this should be interesting...
I have some old hardware lying about and want to build a file server. Here are the details:
I want the server to be shut down or hibernate whenever not in use. I want to be able to remotely power up the server via Wake on Lan to access the data on the server, then when finished with the server, I want it to shut down or hibernate again automatically.
Now I'm not sure what other details are needed. I have a variety of systems in the house (WinXP, OSX, Android, iPhone, PS3) and I want them all to be able to wake the server to access the data, and have it shut down again.
Can we figure out which direction to point me in?
