Some of the features include: Portability – with a straightforward FTP/WWW/WordPress server (with PHP) running off a USB flash drive it is easy to operate a server anywhere in the world. No need to purchase expensive licenses for an operating system because MaheshaBSD Server is an operating system (FreeBSD). You will have an immediate possibility to use this server. It is configurable via Webmin (remote web interface). The USB memory stick is writable, phpMyAdmin is installed too. The server can be redirected to any disk, NTFS partitions are supported too. By setting up IP Forwarding on ports 21 (FTP), 22 (SSH), 80 (HTTP) you will have an instant possibility to operate a public Internet FTP/WWW and WordPress server; as long as your FTP (or WWW) server is not running in Windows as a separate program, the environment where certain cleverer individuals may always find a way to steal your sensitive data (in case you choose a Windows FTP/web server software with unreported security holes), you will be in a great advantage as regards security; Linux emulation is activated in this thing, too. This means that you can run a lot of Linux tools directly in this FreeBSD box. You can use firewall (ipfw [FreeBSD] and pf [OpenBSD]) in MaheshaBSD Server. You can add unlimited number of accounts; however, in order to keep SFTP accounts chrooted, this needs some additional setup. MaheshaBSD is a social project, too. Many people in the Third World need money for education and institutions fail to provide the valuable infrastructure (software, paying for development of software, etc.). Anybody can share files on LAN (SFTP) and on the Internet. There are not many free online FTP servers today. Most of them (if not all) have restrictions and bypassing them requires payment. With MaheshaBSD Server you need an old HD with the capacity of your choice and a spare computer. Donating/paying the minimum of 25 US dollars will be your lifetime donation.
