File Server Linux Distro

Recommended Posts

I'm seeking a simple file serving OS, which would allow easy permissions handling. I also need it to easily operate without any action on the machine itself. I basically want to be able to access the files on different networks in different locations, simply by hooking it in and powering it up.

This will be used for my 1TB File Container Mod. My current idea is to use W2K Pro and Cerberus FTP server, but I just need to know if there is anything else better out there.

Thanks

are you just serving files on a home network, do you need an ftp server to do that? At home I use my linux box to serve files to windows using samba(windows file sharing protocol).
