"Pocket" ISP based on RedHat Linux HOWTO

Anton Chuvakin,

v2.0.0 10 January 2001

This document outlines the setup of a single RedHat box for dialins, virtual web hosting, virtual email, POP3 and ftp servers. Why anybody might need this in one box is beyond the scope of this document. The idea is a complete ISP solution based on RedHat Linux. Any part of this setup can be implemented separately though. I will try to emphasize all the commands so one can just paste them to configure his own box. The list of documents that I borrowed from and some further reading is provided below (see References section). I will keep security in mind on all stages of the setup and will make clear all the security limitations of this setup, that I am aware of. I should add that assets that are to be protected in this case are considered not very valuable (e.g. personal pages etc) thus efforts spent on securing the setup are allowed to be limited.
