THIS IS NOT a be-all end-all config guide. This will, however, probably get you going. If this doesn’t work out for you- go Google. You’ll find tutorials out there for just about any version of UNIX / Linux you want to use.
To do a basic RH 9.0 Linux installation:
After partitioning- you will need to provide an IP address- Use a static. REMEMBER- this box should:
1. Live behind the corporate firewall,
2. Be on the same subnet as your Exchange box
After network, it will ask about firewall- set to No Firewall
Package selection (select the following, all else off):
Gnome Desktop Environment
Server Config Tools
Let the install complete
SET THE LOGIN TYPE TO TEXT! Then reboot.
Login to the system as root, type STARTX.
Start the user manager -> Click the hat -> System Settings -> Users and Groups
Add a user account- This will be used to access the system from the network via telnet.
Go to Hat -> System Settings -> Services
Turn OFF Sendmail
Turn ON Telnet
Login from a telnet session (you REALLY want to do this so you can copy/paste). SU and enter root password. Then type:
Type SET and check to make sure the variable stuck. You may have to do it once or twice.
IMPORTANT! If LANG is not set to en_US, the installation will fail!
Run the perl shell using the command:
perl -MCPAN -e shell
It may ask if you want manual configuration- type No and press enter. A whole bunch of stuff will scroll by.
then type- ALWAYS AGREE WITH DEFAULTS:
If you are asked if you want to run the Razor2 or DCC tests, just press enter to select NO. When finished type q and press enter to quit.
