Current state of vpsBoard 02/04/2017Dear vpsBoard members and guests:
Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.
Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.
I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.
I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.
I am working on a bigger extended LAN project - think neighborhood level.
Trying to find something that does VOIP-like calling, ideally without a central server. Peer to peer would be ideal. Something with calling ability, missed call notification, maybe text chat.
Platform here is Linux, but something with an Android client too would be awesome.
Anyone using or aware of such a thing? Only need 1-to-1 calling, no conferencing or group functions.
Would you buy a dedicated server without IPMI? Provided that remote re-install is available and automated by customer (via PXE). A rescue system is also available (via PXE). Remote reboot is available (via Switched PDU or tickets free). remote KVM is available for loan for a small fee. Yes, we're planning to release some budget dedicated servers in the future. i5 Haswell 8GB RAM 500GB HDD ($49 or below).
Collectively brain pooling on this one.
Looking for easiest/quickest PXE boot server solution.
Simply, need a setup where netboot can get one of many distro options to be served by this server.
Anyone have a recommendation for the simplest/quickest to setup PXE boot server?
