I am opening a cable net service
Glad To Here!
need to help about which services i use like dsl or satellite and cost of both
Try only ISDN first in initial stage.
Gerry's Net is providing 64Kb shared link in just 4500/- per month. ratio is 1:4. but you must have to make a contract with them and it will charge you only once a amount of 10,000/- for modem and installation.
Wol is also providing DSL but it is not suitable for you coz it is not shared and dedicated bandwidth makes it worthable. shortly we will launched homedsl in khi and you can avail it shortly.
and Spec. of server and which OS i Use. please help me,
its upto you. but, for sure that squid performance is totally dependant of RAM. so try max ram on your caching server. atleast 512MB.
dual machine of Pentium II is sufficient and easy to afford. use branded machine. it will get ya out of most driver installation headache. and truely shows you a performance.
Operating System :
in my opinion, obviously go for Linux.
but if you wanna go for windows you can. but i suggest for legally. both are OS.
but linux is much better than windows.
its opensource (not an advantage for you
coz you dont have anything to do with it)
it doesnt have physical memory dump error
it is best to use downlink. because it costs Rs. 1500 almost per month for 128 K shared downstream.
you forgot to explain the quota scheme? so its not right for him.
more you need one linux and one windows machine
i thing only one in starting
use the windows machines for connectivity to isdn and downlink
Why? cant linux handle this?
use your linux machine as proxy server and firewall.
if linux act as proxy and firewall then why you suggest him to install ISA and windows?
about idsn because if i use idsn line i also purchase isdn modem to. and my initail cost will increase please discribe me briefly
Answer is :
Isdn adpater (which u can say modem) is provided by ptcl with out extra cost .
i am aggry with ranatanveer
everyone is free to pass him opinion
but not recomand any one to use isa
absolutely but tell the anyone that there is another option which is isa instead of Squid. the choice is depends on him.
if some one wants to use windows based server than most go on squidnt and wipfw or kerio
as i said that its his choice. squidNT is tested by me without any firewall and with sygate firewall for port redirecting.
its 10 time more secure than ISA
On cable net, security is not such a issue.
anyways, i can configure isa more secure than squid which is running in local cable net environment. it depends on the engineer's knowledge. America Online (www.aol.com
) is using ISA.
well rana tanveer its linuxpakistan
but i suggest ISA in the scenerio that, 80 % of windows users wish to install ISA.
80% wants to go for linux and squid but installed isa due to lack of knowledge.
you are going to start a business of Cable Net and afraid of ISDN modem Cost
obviously, he cant invest more than his range. business needs planning strategies my dear.
