RedHat Fedora Core Installation Guide - 5.2. Special Considerations

5.2. Special Considerations

All Fedora Core installations include the following network services:

  • email through SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol)

  • network file sharing through NFS (Network File System)

  • printing through CUPS (Common UNIX Printing System)

  • remote login through SSH (Secure SHell)

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.

[Tip]Minimal installations

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.
