Gin has been good to me for a couple years now, running my website, providing me with a printer/scanner server, acting as a router, and even hosting my revision control, but there wont be room when I move. While gin has been good for quite a while (first computer I ever built) its only an AMD 1.1 GHz with 512MB of Ram and 40GB of disk space. I will be moving off of gin in the next few weeks and onto jager.
I use quite a few network service this point and even host my own website from home. However, I wasn't that smart when I designed my current network setup and would like to rearrange the network in order to give me some additional flexibility. I came up with the drawing to the right in order to explain exactly what I intend to do. Let me start off by giving a brief description of each node.
- Brandy - Slicehost server
- Gin - OpenWRT based router (takes over my old servers name)
- Whisky - Desktop
- Jager - Server
- Beer - HTPC
- Wine - Holley's laptop
- Vodka - My laptop
