Dedicated server and gateway for your business.

Based on CentOS 4.5, SME Server 7.2 is a FREE and Open Source network server and gateway Linux distribution, addressed at small and medium enterprises. The following guide will teach you step-by-step how to install the SME Server distribution on your computer.

Before we begin, I should warn you that it is required to have two network cards on the computer if you want to use SME Server to operate as a server and gateway. You will not be able to complete the SME Server configuration if you don’t have two network cards.

If you didn’t get a copy of SME Server yet, download it here, burn it on a blank CD, and boot your computer from it. Press the ENTER at boot prompt:

The hard drive on which you are about to install the SME Server should be empty. If not, all the data on it will be deleted. So, if you are sure that you don’t have any important data on the hard drive, when you’ll be warned that the hard disk will be reformatted and any data will be lost, hit ‘Yes’ to proceed:

After the hard disk is formatted and the default partitions created, you have to choose your time zone:

After that, the install image will be transferred to hard drive:

And the installation process starts:

The SME Server can act as a Server and Gateway, Private server and Gateway or as Server-only. What you want the SME Server to be is a choice I leave to you.
