Thumbs up setting up server and workstation


Hi Guys:

I was able to set up workstation at home but it's difficult for me to set up the server. Please could somebody give me a clue as to how to set up workstation and server on stand alone machines. Your help will be greatly appreciated

You will need to describe wha tyou want the server to do, what it's connected to, what distro you plan to use, etc., etc.

A server on a stand-alone machine? What sense does that make?



Cheers,

Actually there is no real distinction between server and workstation in Linux. A workstation in Linux is just a cut down distribution with network daemons missing. You can make any Linux computer a server or a workstation. A server just means that you are providing a central shared service for many computers.

Tinkster, perhaps rather than standalone, it should read separate?
