Hello there,

I am considering Turnkey Linux as an alternative to the excellent OpenMediaVault, but would like to know if there was a comparison made between the two systems. I don't intend to build a NAS, just a plain small server suitable for sharing printers and a few, occasional files on a low-intensity file server. For that reason and since it's a Mac-only setup here, I was naturally looking at the AFP server (Samba is less secure and overall slower), but couldn't find any package from the GUI. I was able to install it from the command line, but would like a GUI-enabled configuration. Would there be a way for such a configuration?

It would also need to drive an old scanner supported in SANE. Would that even be possible from the web page?

And finally, as I can never remember the adresses of the services running on my LAN, I'd like to have a portal page where all of them could be listed. What would be the preferred solution?

But there is no ready to go TurnKey appliance that will do it OOTB... TurnKey would just be a marginally better starting point than vanilla Debian server but there would still be a ton of work to do and I'm not even 100% sure that you will be able to achieve everything you want.
