router question - Page 3

post #21 of 30
The minimum package I could buy from Qwest is 8 static IP's. Sure and e5200 and 2 gigs is high for a router but like I said when I am done using it as an Untangle I will turn it back into a desktop PC. Untangle likes to specify 1 gb RAM,and on this box when I view how much is being used (you can view all that stuff on Untangle) I see it is using 800mb, so rather than pulling a stick out I left it in. I had the e5200 cpu just laying around so I might as well use it in the Untangle.

Most can figure out how to configure an Untangle without any more than basic networking knowledge but configuring the 5505 is a full step-up in required knowledge (besides costing 400.00).

Well thanks guys! I think I am going to buy that modem and try it out. IF I don't get better speeds can always send it back...
I'm also going to move everything to my room to connect wired to everything. I will report back with any speed increases

Home hosted website,I seriously considered the 5505 ASA but I am glad I waited and decided to work with the Untangle for a while. Things are compairitivly easy to figure out on Untangle (compared to a 5505). It is utterly amazing to view the spyware log and see how many times a minute something is blocked. I am at 99% tracking cookie blockage and then that last percent gets picked with free Avast.

Beers,you are going to make me look up "VPS" because I ask "cheaper than what" the 14.95 for the 8 statics, the cost of Untangle or the cost of a 5505?

OK VPS=Virtuial Private Server. I do get recommendations here that "this and that is overkill" or "you could do it cheaper this way" I very rarely suffer damage from using more capable equipment than I need and I had other parameters in my home hosted web site than finding a way to put information on the net the cheapest way.But that being said I will explore VPS as I like to have at least know about all the options.

My choices more closely revolve aroud research and development. I also pay for hosting services for a second web site (one I want up all the time and it would be bad for business if that one went down, perceptions being what they are and considering what I am trying to introduce to students in a non-profit venture) Then second way (home hosting) is done with a comparative and a feel out of what others would go through in home hosting. Home hosting is a niche operation but I would like to make the process a bit easier for those that would get enjoyment doing it (also in a non-profit sense). If I am going to advise on home hosting (and my advice is not to do it unless you do not care about increased cost and time spent) I need to expose my self to all the hazards of home hosting and try and find a way to limit these hazards.Sorry for the hi-jack OP.

I will say it was a blast when I reached a point in home hosting when I could go from not one bit configured to having four pages up and even some javsScript in the site in about 1.5 hrs. I also like to overclock my gaming rigs, I am very diverse in my computer/ IT activites as I am disabled so no more basketball or football for me.
