Hi guys,

I use Ubuntu 9.04 and want to setup a secure server on my local computer. As I am new I need step by step guide how to do it. I'll be very happy if I get help from you to do it.

Thanks in advance

what kind of server? Also what level security are you looking at? Making a VPN (http://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/documentation/howto.html) and then forcing all services to listen on the vpn IP only and using ssh public keys to login (http://sial.org/howto/openssh/publickey-auth/) is the most secure i can think of off the top of my head but pretty much cripples the server for other people to use unless it's an internal office server only in which case that solution works quite well.

What I will do is, have a Linux server in my office and let others access to their own folders in var/www/ from outside.
