Big project: comments?
Posted on 1997-02-15
My university has ethernet connections in its residences for internet. Right now my computer is connected to it via an accton ethernet card. My great plan is to get another computer (CHEAP!!!) and have it plugged into the university connection, then connect my computer, and up to 2 more computers at the same time. The new computer would run linux and various servers (ftp, www, mail) and presumably route the stuff between the other computers. My bit question is, is this a good way to go about this? The only comment I've gotten form anyone so far is that I should use a hub - can anyone tell me the pros and cons of this method? Thanks!
