Any interest in an OpenBSD how-to?

by on Dec.06, 2008, under OpenBSD

I started writing an OpenBSD how-to regarding an all-in-one appliance solution some time ago.. (around the 3.4-RELEASE)
It started to seem really redundant, as OpenBSD is so thoroughly documented.
Is there any interest in seeing something like that?
I was thinking of something that could be used as your firewall, mail server, web server, as well as a VPN/DNS/DHCP/SSH/SFTP/FTP server.
We’ll set it up wiki-style, allowing edits.
So, any takers? Those asking questions and offering feedback will be encouraged to post…

    I’ve been using OpenBSD for some time, I personally would jump at the opportunity to read your guide. I’ve been working on deploying something similar the past two months or so. Great Idea!

      Hi Shawn!

      Cool! I’m guessing that most people aren’t trying to create a distribution release of their own, and will only attempt to configure a few of the services I mentioned. Considering that, I think we could just detail each of those services, with individual how-to articles.
      I’ll get started on setting it up, can I count on you for content/feedback?

      Thanks for posting,

    I would be so down with that sickness. Hit me up when you are done with that.
