View Full Version : [all variants] setting laptop as server

December 4th, 2008, 01:30 PM
I have an old HP Pavillion laptop that I want to put to good use as a file server and/or webserver.
If I install on it Ubuntu Server, is it possible to configure it so it does not shutdown if I close the lid? I would like to place it on a shelf so it doesn't take much space.

Also, how can I set it up so I can access it from my Ubuntu desktop? (I have a Linksys router)
