I've bee using Debian for a long time now. So far I can't find anything I like better.
I'm looking for suggestions for some distros to try out on my VM to see which I want to implement on my server. I'd just want toplay around with another another Distro. It doesn't do me any good to only know Debian fairly well.
My server is simply a file share right now. It has two NICS, and I want to learn about having two networks coming from it. So I'm looking for something with good LDAP features, or a good LDAP based package.
I want features that make it easy to block incoming and outgoing packets from ports to help protect my things.
I've heard nothing but good things about Smoothwall.
Does anyone else have any suggestions based on my needs?
I will run certain things on it that are pretty simple to implement like DHCP server, and a file share.
Other than that I want to focus on port control, and LDAP.
