You say "wat i wanna know exactly" but you're not being that exact yourself, right? What do you want to serve your clients? An intranet web site? Users home directories over NFS? Storage using Samba shares? BTW monitoring depends on the situation and on the existence of Privacy Laws your setup would be subject to, so is this a home setup? Work? Class room? Institution? And what do you want to monitor?

Again, you are not providing any useful details. What, exactly, do you mean by "developing a software"?? WHAT KIND of software? What does it do? WHY do you need four systems to develop one piece of software?

Short answer: a server has a service running that listens on a specific network port. The client sends requests to that port, which the service responds to, much like a web server: listens on port 80, when queried by a browser it will send the requested content to the client.

If you're not a 'tech guy', what's your degree in? If you don't know programming, network communications, or Linux, asking how to build a client-server application is going to be a HUGE task for you.

No idea what you mean by "a java application which might have different module so i thought of spliting the work to each ppl". Programming is programming..you need to know how the languages work, and understand the basics. It's not going to be easier in Java than it is in any other language you don't know. And what is "splitting the work to each ppl" mean??

Define your GOAL...WHAT EXACTLY do you want to accomplish? What does this software that you want to write DO?

Don't know...still lacking sufficient information.

However, the OP says he's not a 'tech guy'...so even setting up a server will be challenging, much less getting the servers online, and setting up a Java environment for a development team.

Simple sharing could be done using NFS (mentioned earlier). If this is for development with multiple developers sharing code, you might be looking for a versioning system.

Traditionally a server doesn't have a GUI, but that's your choice.
That's really the point of FOSS; nearly everything is up to you.

It definitely sounds like you'll want a code ctrl system of some sort.

I recommend using ssh to login to the server; may be consider Filezilla as a secure ftp client; it can use the ssh transport (uses the sftp tool, part of the ssh pkg)
