As mentioned earlier, my trusty old server has finally decided to give up on me after abusing it since year 2001. Had managed to shift most of the hosted services to other devices on the network. Shifted print server to a wireless G print server (DPR-1260), and the rest of the functions onto the DNS-323.
So what is the DNS-323 doing now? The list of stuff my DNS-323 is doing:
- Downloading and seeding files
- Tunneled connection for my Internet needs at public hot spots
- Automated backup using rsync for some network clients
- Web server for some project work
To minimize the harddisk reads and writes, most of the services are running off a flash drive. Lesser disk spins = power savings!
