How would a Porteus "Server Edition" look like?

New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

Why would you need xorg for a server?

I guess one could use gui applications to make settings on the server -it is more confortable- . After all, xorg.xzm is not so heavy...well, i will put 002 in parenthesis

Now, including the considerations of Hamza I will rewrite it:

1.- Frugal Installation to HD,
2.-000-kernel.zxm, 001-core.xzm, (002-xorg.xzm) in base,
3.-Name, LAMP, Mail, Samba, Proxy servers...
4.-NGINX + PHPFM + MYSQL,
5.-??

There is one neat config thingy, that lets you config any LDAP or more server via webbrowser GUI / local net, aka 192.168.x.x ...

Sadly, I forgot its name, but I would sure include that one and leave out the xserver. It might be a small module, but it uses too much system resources. When I remember the name of that graphical config via http I post here. :)

Nope, it's sure not swap... I saw its screenshot on http://www.linux-praxis.de/linux3/swat.html and the one I looked at when I realized a company I visited was using it and I never heard about it, was sure more complex and also better designed than what I see on that screenshot in the above link...

I sure put the name and a link in one of my info texts about administration, but dunno on which of my dozens USB sticks it might be... *shrug*

I know, you mean Putty (=Power user tty). Putty is a modern replacement -with bells and whistles- of the old telnet.
I have it myself in "modules" many months ago. I thought I had posted it in the forum. There it is.

Tell me if this is the one you mean.

Regards!

Nope, I know putty.

What I mean is a neat, modern styled (I not looked into the html code, but presume it uses css as well) GUI, that you use in any browser to config stuff on a server, so that all can be configured without the need of xorg (or any Xwindows, that is) running on that server, but still have it configured in a neat GUI like way...

I might recall the name of the company that uses it, they admin safe (highly encrypted) & automated cloud based data backups, and are located in the next town to mine... And use Linux as main server platform, of course...

How about security?

If your Porteus server is going to be connected to the internet 24/24 - 7/7 you surely need some protection?

Why do you need a GUI for the server?
What's so great about Teamviewer, it breaks the connection after what, 10 min.?

Teamviewer would be needed to control our server remotely, I think; TeamV. doesn't have to be part of the server itself -so we can leave x out- ... or?

How about editions: 32-bits, 64 or both editions? I guess 64-bits gives a more powerful server...

... what about good old SSH?
- Less overhead
- Less bandwidth required
- More secure
- Does not use third party services... -> more secure/stable & better up-time.

SSH just seems so obvious, and if you can't control a server from the terminal, don't think about starting up and maintaining a server at all.
And if you really would need an X-environment, use X over SSH (be cautious with your settings there).
