Firewall, Print server, NAS

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm wondering if it's possible to have one PC and use it for Firewall, Print server and network storage?

What do I need (software-wise) to do that?

Hey mate,

Yes you can, get windows 2008 SBS edition, that can run as your firewall (ISA server 2006 should do it) along with print server and NAS functionality, if you really wanted it could also be a domain controller for that extra bit of network security.

I would suggest that you take a look at ClearOS.


EDIT:That link seems to borked somehow,it takes me a few extra secs to get to it also.Try this one.

Is there any Linux/UNIX OS which can be used instead of Windows 2008 SBS?

For print server and network storage.... just about any OS could do that.

For Firewall, you can create a Virtual Router and install a router distro. This would also provide some sandboxing of your storage from network.

VMWare has a pfSense appliance: http://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/PfS...ware_Appliance

What about using Ubuntu and installing the programs needed for Print server, Network storage, firewall?

For print server maybe CUPS or HpAllInOne (I own a HP Officejet 4110 All-In-One printer)

For Network storage Samba (Configure it as a file server https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/server...ileserver.html)

Don't know what to use for firewall.

And would be nice if there's a program which would allow me to monitor and manage the server from another computer

*And is there a possiblity to use a wireless card to crate wireless network?

As for hardware-wise:

I have been thinking of using a AMD E-350 or AMD Athlon II x2 220

Fusion:
ASUS E35M1-M
1TB WD Caviar Green
2GB DDR3-1066 Ram
*Wireless card (ASUS PCE-N13)
Ethernet card

Athlon:
AMD Athlon II x2 220
MSI 760GM-P33
1TB WD Caviar Green
2GB DDR3-1333
*Wireless card (ASUS PCE-N13)
Ethernet card (TP-Link TG-3468)

I want both systems to be as small as possible...

Maybe use FreeBSD?

Although I'm really confused on which hardware (CPU in this case) it supports :/

Why not try Windows XP or 2000.
"all" you need for firewall/router is WinRoute....
Most of the other NAS features already exists in XP or can be installed free....easy peasy....
