>>I'm very likely hoping for too much but I'm doing some work in an office that would really benefit from a small server.
>>Requirements of this server are:
>Something about the size of a normal residential internet router. AS quiet as one too.
>A distribution of Linux..... obviously.
>most importantly, easily configurable to authenticate users on windows machines.
>some kind of mail server to pull in mail from a number of pop3 servers. Squirrelmail for remote access would be nice but not escential.
>Another very important function is a proxy. Both for regulating usage and reporting. Squid would be great.
>If at all possible, a method of attaching removable storage either via LAN or USB would really help.
>>I know I'm asking for a lot but the people I'm doing this work for are not particularly technical. However, their requirements are expanding as they take more staff on. Their already paying out quite a lot for more desktops so I want to keep the price of this device reasonably low and one major factor is keeping the running cost down as well.
>>I've heard of projects in the past set up to build Linux distributions on very portable hardware so I'm almost sure at least some of this functionality is possible.
>>If absolutely necessary, I could configure this functionality on a normal PC but I'm still not as skilled at this than most of you and I've only about two and a half weeks to get this up and running.
>>Any suggestions welcome.
