    Greetings and Salutations...
    Hi... My official title is "Network Services Manager" for the Kansas City, Kansas Public Library. In truth, I'm the IT guy... whether it's the desktop computers in the public labs, staff desktops, or the servers in the back room, I'm responsible for it all. That means about 500 computers, five public library branches, plus 46 school libraries where I'm just responsible for the school librarian's computers/printers... the school district is responsible for the student's computers. We're running Windows 7 on the desktops with a couple specialized Windows servers, but mostly CentOS-based LINUX servers these days. Been using UNIX/LINUX in various flavors for over 25 years. ...brig Brig C. McCoy

    Need a guide for setting up a public mirror.
    My employer has the bandwidth and hardware necessary to provide a public mirror for the community. While I can find distro-specific information on setting up a mirror for that distro, I'm having trouble finding anything on what I need to think about when setting up the public mirror itself. I'm looking for guidance on how to set up http/https, ftp, rsync, and whatever else I should have available on this proposed public mirror. Hopefully under CentOS, but that I can be flexible about. I'm mostly interested in best practices, hoping I don't miss something in creation of the public mirror. ...brig Brig C. McCoy Network Services Manager Kansas City, Kansas Public Library
