"Set your server up with any software you require to perform the tasks you wish to achieve. For me, this meant I wanted to send and receive my email, I wanted to access my development host and databases, and I wanted unfiltered access to the web in general.

"To achieve this, I installed the following packages onto a Dell PowerEdge server running Ubuntu Linux 7.10 server addition:

"OpenSSH (to provide the SSH tunnel access)
Postfix (for SMTP access)
Dovecot (for POP3 access)
Squid (for HTTP/WEB access)
Apache (for web development, and local access to my web database panels)

"I also made sure that my copy of Apache had PHP capabilities, and installed phpMyAdmin into the web server root to allow me to access my database servers. I also installed "webmin" to allow general admin of the server."
