It does not need to do much after upgrading the hdd it will be used as.


A first level firewall
internet router
FTP server
filesharing

all which clarkconnect does, so seems simpler than configuring a whole linux installation. Also clark connect support remote configuring which i want as i dont have a spare keyboard mouse monitor...

This is a linux based set up - I know people who have it and they say that it can be a pain to set up .. you would probably be better off getting a router and printserver, and use the firewall that is in the router - Linsys are vey good systems. Or what you could do is set up the network dhcp style.

The home edition is yes - but the others start at 125.00 ... I do like how you can install it and run everything remotely from any browser on any computer .. that is a nice feature, I am seriously thinking about trying it myself - But either way though, when you have it you will need a switch or hub and two nic cards on the main server .. good luck ..

As I usually say, it's easy as pie to install and very simple to set up. Very noob friendly.

I went with standard settings, only blocking outgoing traffic on 135-139 (NetBIOS) and allowing incomming traffic I want (80: webserver, 21: FTP server and so on).

Good luck. :)

Thanx for the info - Now what about setting up passive ranges for the ftp ??

hmm ... o.k - I'll have to try it, the range you stated is still to low, way to low ...

Too low? Anything above 1024 is pretty much free, and that range allows for 100 connections at the same time. But you could always take a higher range. Say 15000-15100?

Safe Passive Range is 50,000 up ... The ISP port scopes in the range you mentioned ...

You mean they scan ports up to 50k?
1. I think not, at least not mine. I'd notice a port scan.
2. So? All they'll see are open ports. It could be anything.

And if you mean that they block ports, then that's pretty rare too.

They don't port scan up to 50,000 - that is just the safe range .. It is also affective when you get other people port scanning you, it would take to long for them to go up to that high .. it's just a safety precausion,, I always use passive range and never use port 21 ..
