first thing fedora 11 hit it's END OF LIFE 6 months ago
it has been UNSUPPORTED for 6 months

i would check out installing CentOS 5.5
it is a long life os designed FOR SERVERS

fedora is NOT good for a server because of it's VERY short life ( only 13 months)
RHEL /CentOS 5 year life span

As You are not so familiar with Linux, I must suggest you the ClearOS linux. It's Easy to configure and manage.

This thread is essentially a duplicate of

except that this one includes 'Fedora 11' in the title and that one had the iptables/ipchains stuff. It would have been better to make one thread that discussed these very related questions.

I have merged the two virtually identical threads.

Please in the future post your question only in one location. This makes it easier for folks to help you, and keeps the discussion in one place.
If you want your thread located in a different forum, please use the REPORT button and ask a moderator to move it for you.
