"While larger companies have the staff and resources to manage
their network connections, often smaller businesses are looking for
a one-stop solution to make and manage their connection to the net.
Based on Red Hat Linux, E-smith Server and Gateway is a
software bundle that includes all the services needed to connect a
network to the Internet in a single package."
"While a comprehensive package, software installation took only
approximately 15 minutes. The package includes a short but easy to
follow and well-illustrated manual that eased installation. Once
the bootable CD starts up, it guides the installer through the very
simple setup phase."
"The software is an excellent one-size-fits-all solution for
Net access and collaboration. It can put an entire office on the
Internet in an extremely short amount of time, and with excellent
throughput and stability. The CRN Test Center at Comdex
recommends E-smith Server and Gateway."
