Well I do not really fear anythig from the inside, the outside is my problem.

Short question that might be dumb, but why does the LMCE server has to be the one that everything is routed over?

Users / LMCE & security
« on: November 23, 2012, 01:47:36 pm »

I have a question regarding LMCE & security.

I should use the LMCE server as a gateway right? so route all traffic to and from the internet over the LMCE server. So the server is open to the internet. And potentially vulnerable when not all security updates are applied.

But now we have LMCE 1004, which is based on Kubuntu 10.04 as a beta, right?

So if I install LMCE1004 (which is only beta), I install Kubunut 10.04, where the support runs out on April 2013! (only the server version hast 5y support)
If I install the current stable LMCE 804, which is Kubuntu 8.04 I have a Kubuntu that is already out of support for over a year!

So how can I use LMCE without having to fear security problems?

Please note that this SHOULD NOT(!) be a rant about the development of LMCE and the timing, just a serious question.

Best regards

Thanks for the comments.

Please note that I will install this system in around half a year.

Available hardware: PC with Intel i5 low voltage (don't know which one exactly, as I do not have access to the system in the moment as i am abroad), and 6TB in software raid5 and 4GB ram. This one will be the server.
A few computers for media directors (i5, i7). Does the MD have to run on Kubuntu too? At this time they are running Ubuntu and Arch Linux. Also can the Media directors use multi-monitor layouts (4 monitors) with amd cards in (software) crossfire?

For the automation part:
Since everything is already existing i guess I'll have to use a wireless protocol. EnOcean looks really neat, do you have any sources for europe?

Best regards

I am at the moment researching LMCE and thinking if this is the right joice for me.
Short info about me: I am quite used to linux and have no problem with playing with it a bit, but in the end I want to have a system that works and that I can forget, and not one that crashes every other day.

As far as I understand even if LMCE supports for instance KNX it does not support all devices, right?

I am looking at a home automation / media system that has the following features:

* suitable for already built homes. So either wireless or over the powerline. (i know LMCE has that)
* lighting (i know LMCE has that)
* sensors (temperature, humidity and others)
* possbility to have remote -controlled (by LMCE) switches. So that I can have an appliance that I wire to a switch and can switch it remote.
* Movie server / client (i know LMCE has that)
* data storage on software raid

nice to have:
* video surveillance
* door lock
* if possible cheap ;) (yes I know, it never is)

I would implement that in about half a year.

Best regards
