Linux PC Server Admin
Posted on 2004-08-04
I just baught a ibm pc server.
I plan to do make it as a Monitoring Server and all office network or other will get the internet from this pc. It's like linux router...the pc has a 3 network card...first NIC, eth0 is connected directly to the modem with the fix ip. and there is another 2 nic which is eth1 and eth2. The eth1 will link up to router for office used. And the eth2 is optional and just prepared to make it available for internet connection.
For expert suggestion, 1) which Linux OS is better for me to install in the pc server? 2) Please guide me how to do a routing from step to step or you all has another option to do the routing. Where all the subnetwork has different ip, office used range 10.0.0.x and others 22.214.171.124, and so on. 3) From my plan we can see all the outside connection is comming thru this pc server and spread to the office network and other network such as vpn or ect...is there any program in linux which i can compatiblely installed in the pc server to see which ip is up and detecting system monitoring...
Thank you...I need help urgently.
