Quite A Productive Evening

January 11th, 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

Last night, I had quite a productive evening.

After months of neglect underneath my desk at home, I finally managed to get around to finish building my new home server/router. I’ve got the basics working: NAT Routing, DHCP and DNS services working, something that I had had great problems with.

It’s all reading to go now, and I can provide a simple switch with my existing router/server box (currently running SuSE 7.3 because it’s too old to run anything newer!). Once it’s in place, then I can start organising some more of the other services that I use (CVS, LDAP, SAMBA, that kind of thing). My only hold back now is getting files of the old box, and getting all my client computers to switch things like outgoing mail servers to the new IP address.

I’ve also come up with a good way of making sure I back up the necessary files if I ever need to reformat the machine: Keep copies in a directory in my home directory – I have also made notes of the other processes that I have done. Makes sense I suppose!
