Just put in the order for my 3c855 on MWave, 2-day shipping, should be here on Wednesday. At that point, Jiji will be going down for a while as I transfer the services and inboxes to the Netfinity. Shouldn't be long enough to bounce incoming mail, but it will be a couple of hours without POP3 (getting email). When it comes back up, though, things ought to be a smidge cooler. For one, I'll be running (authenticated users only) FTP services. If anyone wants a userID for the webmail or FTP server, let me know, but be warned, it's only one cablemodem. It won't be able to handle multiple listserv subscriptions or huge file downloads, I've only got 128k/sec up the pipe. As for the router, I talked to 3Com before buying it, they gave me their word I won't have any problems with the CNAME, port forwarding, or security of private network services. I think my best bet to avoid SMB tomfoolery is to only bind it to NetBEUI, and leave only the public services on TCP/IP. If you've got a better idea, please clue me in.
