"Pocket" ISP based on RedHat Linux HOWTO
v2.0.0 10 January 2001
This document outlines the setup of a single RedHat box for dialins, virtual
web hosting, virtual email, POP3 and ftp servers. Why anybody might need
this in one box is beyond the scope of this document. The idea is a complete
ISP solution based on RedHat Linux. Any part of this setup can be
implemented separately though. I will try to emphasize all the commands so
one can just paste them to configure his own box. The list of documents
that I borrowed from and some further reading is provided below (see References section).
I will keep security in mind on all stages of the setup and will make
clear all the security limitations of this setup, that I am aware of.
I should add that assets that are to be
protected in this case are considered not very valuable (e.g. personal pages etc) thus
efforts spent on securing the setup are allowed to be limited.
