    Hi folks, Would you please recommend a good DNS software suitable to setup a Dynamic DNS server for a large number of clients (like 2000-3000)? Currently I'm using dns/maradns for personal purposes, but I'm doubting it's a good choice for a commercial project. Thanks for advises!

    Solved How to dampen server noise?

    For reasons of economy, a number of servers for my startup have found a comfortable home in a walk-in closet in my home. While I do not mind the constant whirring of the fans and disks (the sound of a hard-working server is music to my ears), and crisis response time is at an all time low...

    Router and other services

    What's your opinion about this? Should you have separated router and a server machine or is it okay to have every service in the same machine? By services I mean DNS, NAS, VPN, murmur etc. Should you keep a router purely as a router?

    PostScript print server with non-PostScript printer

    Hi guys, I have a special gem of a strategic question for you. Lately I acquired an OKI C301dn color laser printer capable of duplex printing and USB/LAN connection. The device was dirt-cheap so I did not do much research, but now I know why it was dirt-cheap: The printing quality is quite...
