Re: computer stats ok for this?
yes and no. It all depends on the load. How much traffic do you have going over the machine ? how often is the LDAP queried ?
In general - i'd say, try it. Install the thing, and just test it. If it is slow, buy the new comp, and copy over the configs (or just stuff the hd in the new computer). There is nothing preventing this
PS: I've been running router on pentium-pro 200 with 128M RAM for about 300 people. Also, i had an OpenVPN server for 75 User on a PII-350 with 256 Megs ram. All worked (the gateway is still running)
