5.2. Special Considerations
All Fedora Core installations include the following network services:
email through SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer
network file sharing through NFS (Network File
printing through CUPS
(Common UNIX Printing System)
remote login through SSH
Some automated processes on your Fedora system use the email
service to send reports and messages to the system administrator.
By default, the email and printing services do not accept
connections from other systems. Although Fedora connects to NFS
services on other systems, the NFS sharing
component is disabled by default. You may configure your Fedora
system after installation to offer email, NFS, or print services.
The SSH service is enabled by default.
To install a minimum of software, choose the
Custom installation type. On the
Package Group Selection screen, select the
Minimal package group. The only services
included in a Minimal installation are
email, printing, NFS, and SSH. This type of installation may be
useful for firewalls or other specialized systems on which
limited service is an advantage.
