10.1. Core Network Services

All Fedora Core installation include the following network services:

  • centralized logging through syslog

  • email through SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol)

  • network file sharing through NFS (Network File System)

  • remote access through SSH (Secure SHell)

  • resource advertising through mDNS (multicast DNS)

The default installation also provides:

  • network file transfer through HTTP (HyperText Transfer Protocol)

  • printing through CUPS (Common UNIX Printing System)

  • remote desktop access through VNC (Virtual Network Computing)

Some automated processes on your Fedora system use the email service to send reports and messages to the system administrator. By default, the email, logging, and printing services do not accept connections from other systems. Fedora installs the NFS sharing, HTTP, and VNC components without enabling those services.

You may configure your Fedora system after installation to offer email, file sharing, logging, printing and remote desktop access services. The SSH service is enabled by default. You may use NFS to access files on other systems without enabling the NFS sharing service.
