Are you wanting to set up a server, to host a web page for instance?

If I could, I'd like to make this thread twice as valuable by exploring the other server option.

I use http://www.cjb.net as my free web host and his paid hosting http://www.proweb.cc for the rest. Good prices, excellent support, very reliable, Linux friendly.

So, I don't want to be my own web server but would like a small home server and would like to discover how Puppy might be that (would save me the hassle of trying to learn and remember two distros).

Thanks! doc

Thanks! David

Yeah, I noticed that. How did this happen I wonder?
I split klh's post from where he originally put it, and started this thread with it because it looked like it deserved its own thread.

As a result we now have an excellent tutorial on how to set up a server. Thanks, guys. Smile

I think you need to do alot more searching and reading.....DMZ and static IP are two completely different things.

Please do alot more research on your own (as you seem to have problems with the lingo) then once you have a better understanding then start asking questions, rather than expect to be spoon fed from start to finish.

this maybe a good place to start to properly understand some terms


Forget about the actual software (shorewall) and concentrate on the ideas and theory.

I'm sorry to be blunt but appears others too may have got private messages from you as well about the same topic.

Personally I wouldn't use puppy as a server...It's primarily a desktop distro and there are other distros better suited to provding services.

But before going too far I really would check with your ISP with regards to running these services. Doing so you be contrary to your contract.

And as for not having a dedicated machine for serving....you're silly if you think someone isn't going to have a go. Remember it'll have to be up 24/7 and people will get pretty damn upset if half way throgh a download you decide to reboot or whatever.

Honestly the X component takes up a damn lot of resources and in itself is not really that secure.

As I said in my last post do your own research get a better understanding of the lingo. Have an idea in your head then ask questions, but honestly a web hosting service is easier, all you have to do is author your pages then upload them, rather than having to maintain a server, which I think at the moment is a bit beyond your skill level. We all gotta start somewhere and yes I used to run my own web\ftp server from home but it was far easier to pay for hosting and domian registration then bother with anything else. And another thing a web hsoting service is going to be able to provide a damn sight better bandwidth than you could from home.

Thank you everybody, especially rarsa and bruce b. That is an excellent tutorial and a simple low cost solution!!!
To everybody else, my recommendation: When dealing with things one does'nt know about it is hard to explain what a person is wanting to do.
As that person has no clue<-me<-anybody
So be kind and nice as I'm sure others and myself have or would try to help whom ever has asked for help!!!
That was not to be rude!!! It is sincere!!!
Thanks again

Heaven is on the way, until then let's get the truth out!
