Thought I'd take it upon myself to create a mail server on 'roppie' (me server). It's now a log server also, I even got my router to send logs to it too. Interesting it is though, I have 'jlap' sending all its logs to roppie too. 'roppie' also runs a minimal web server (lighttpd + mysql, same as jlap) but also serves the logs out on HTTP so I can view them anywhere.
I've been using SFTP on roppie since FTP didn't work for a loooong time. I tried to FTP to it today...and well....proftpd wasn't installed in the first place. So now I have that up and running so its all good.
A switch would be nice for my network, something under 100$ (which I found one on Staples) and it would probably increase my network performace :D
According to my router, I'm only getting 10Mbps half duplex from my modem/ISP. Which sucks.
Overall, I'm pretty happy with myself for what I did. I set up two servers, tweaked them and....are actually...running smoothly.
