SME Server


The SME Server is an open-source software package that, when installed on a PC-compatible computer, transforms it into a easy-to-use, Linux-based communications server. SME Server, a modified version of Red Hat Linux, is a complete suite of essential networking services for internal and external communications and collaboration. This standard Linux distribution has been simplified by making all of the configuration decisions in advance, such as which server packages to run, how permissions and security should be set, how the disk should be partitioned, how the directories should be organized so that the servers are properly integrated with one another, and so on.
