Posted by hook on May 16 2006,12:50I'm hoping someone in the Linux world may know of a distro that would fill my needs. I'm looking for something that would run similar to a snap server. DSL looks like it is part way there but I want to be able to just set it up so it boots then be able to control some of the settings via a browser from another machine like shares, ip, file management etc...
Thanks in advance for any ideas

Posted by NotTheMama on May 16 2006,18:43Some time ago, I found < FreeNAS >. Maybe this is something you like.
Posted by hook on May 17 2006,14:56Thanks, FreeNAS is exactly what I wanted. I know next to nothing about Linux and it is easy to use. Since that was so easily answered I have another question now.
Are any Distros that are made to be a VPN server? Similar to how easy FreeNAS is to use.

Also has addon module as a MOD for OpenVPN (that uses SSH) as well
