Poll Results: We Live to Serve

Poll Results: We Live to Serve -- Coming on the heels of Ron Risley's article about turning a battered PowerBook 5300 into an Internet server, last week's poll asked which common Internet services, if any, you provide for other people from a Macintosh. Even though Ron's article showed how easy and inexpensive setting up Internet servers could be, relatively few people participated in the poll, and roughly a third of them said they didn't run any Internet servers at all. For those who did, a Web server was the most common, with FTP, email, file sharing, and mailing lists not far behind. DNS and media servers were less common, and it would seem that few people run BBS systems these days. If Ron's article has inspired you to connect multiple computers to a single high-speed Internet connection, be sure to check out the TidBITS Talk debate on the merits of software versus hardware routers. TidBITS Talk also carried a variety of additional details about Internet servers on the Mac. [ACE]
