Win2k server -> Linux server


I'm running Debian Testing and a computer that will be replacing my Win2k server.

Currently on the Win2k server I have Exchange (just for email), FTP, DNS, DHCP, File Sharing and Symantec Antivirus.

On the Linux server I will use the following:

Email : Postfix
DNS : Bind
DHCP : dhcpd
FTP : proFPTD
File Sharing : Samba
Antivirus : ??

Both servers have NAT address and so will have to be configured with that in mind.

I have a couple questions:

1. Which order should I install the different programs? (Bind first Postfix second ...?)
2. Is there a good open source antivirus that runs on a Linux server and can manage Linux and Windows clients?


Thanks.

Doesn't matter. There doesn't seem to be any dependency issues.

Not that I know of. For commercial Linux AV, try F-Prot. Also, while not strictly an AV, try looking at file integrity checking software like Tripwire.

i think i'd do the DNS stuff first
there are some very good instructions for setting up a postfix mail server by hand
on any Linux From Scratch Mirror look for the section called "hints". file: "mail.txt"
you can still use apt-get just use the instructions as a guide.
besides the avimailgate used in the LFS example I also use the free antivirus f-prot
Debian is great with the configure scripts so it all should be a breeze
