Server Solutions

Server Products:

With Leading Edge's extensive knowledge of the Linux operating system and a virtually limitless array of open source applications. We excel in configuring systems both as servers and desktops, and supply the following server solutions:

E-mail server:

A Linux server which can manage incoming and outgoing mail for your entire office. Includes sendmail or postfix and support for the pop3 or imap4 mail protocols. This server can be configured to work with the free anti-spam and anti-virus engines.

Proxy server:

The squid proxy server acts as single point of access to the Internet for web browsing. Websites are cached thus improving performace and bandwidth usage. Squid can authenticate users if required. It allows you to limit the web access to certain sites only, and impose time based restrictions. We have written GPL software that generates a comprehensive report about how employees spend time on the Internet.

SAMBA File Server:

Samba is the file sharing and print server which allows Linux to act as the file server for your organisation, without increases in licensing costs as you grow. Samba can act as a NT domain logon server (PDC), and can also be configured with a simple back-up solution.

Apache Internet Web Server:

Apache is the most popular web server on the Internet, and provides a robust platform for static and interactive web sites. Apache supports a large variety of plug-ins and scripting languages including the popular PHP, Perl, and Python languages.

FTP server:

We can configure a Linux based FTP server supporting authenticated access, anonymous access or both. A FTP server allows you to exchange data with a diverse range of hardware and software platforms.

Terminal server:

Terminal servers allow you to run desktop applications on a central server. This allows you to use relatively cheap PC's on your desktop, and sets you free from the hardware upgrade treadmill.

Internet gateway system:

We can set up shared internet access for your corporate network via a leased line, ADSL, a dial-up ISDN or analogue modem attached to the server. We provide a stateful packet filtering firewall to protect your network by regulating connections between your network and the world.

Virtual Private Network (VPN):

A virtual private network allows staff members to access your company network securely from home as if they were sitting at work. VPN's can also allow branches to connect to head office.

Dynamic Host Control Protocol (DHCP):

An auto configuration protocol used on IP networks. Computers that are connected to IP networks must be configured before they can communicate with other computers on the network. DHCP allows a computer to be configured automatically, eliminating the need for intervention by a network administrator. It also provides a central database for keeping track of computers that have been connected to the network. This prevents two computers from accidentally being configured with the same IP address.

Asterisk VOIP PBX

Asterisk is an Open source Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) Private Branch Exchange (PBX). Asterisk has many great features including : voice mail , ring groups, queues, conference calling, trunk calls to brach offices and least cost routing. All of which are fully customizable customizable..
