Using FreeBSD as a server for common office task is easy and an approachable task even for users without extensive knowledge of its internals. In this workshop, you will learn:
how to bring up a functioning server for a small office or workgroup, which includes a small web server, e-mail with Postfix for SMTP, Dovecot for IMAP and RoundCube for the “webmail” user interface, Samba for local file sharing (CIFS / Windows Networking / Network neighbourhood) and Pydio for remote file access over the web.
The requirements for this workshop are a basic knowledge of Unix or Linux systems, a basic familiarity with command-line operations, and a system (possibly a virtual machine) on which you will perform the required tasks.
