This post will, quickly, run through how to create an Ubuntu 18.04 Minimal Server Install. It also only takes a short time, taking between 5 to 15 minutes to install depending on your hardware and the number of times you have run through it. I find it an ideal way to try out and learn how to install Ubuntu in various configurations. I build these test machines as virtual machines running on Virtualbox as this allows me to throw it away without messing about with real hardware.
Now that Radio times listings are now longer updated I needed to move to using Schedules Direct in the UK. This is mostly a direct lift from the post https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Migrating_to_Schedules_Direct_in_the_UK Go there and follow it. This post is for me in case it disappears.
This post will show you how to install DNS with bind9 and DHCP on Ubuntu 16.04. We will end up with a full blown bind9 DNS with an integrated DHCP server. If you are a home user and your network has grown such that you are tired of using all static IP addresses and having to configure the /etc/hosts files by hand, then use the great tool dnsmasq. See my How to set up dnsmasq. Dnsmasq is so much simpler to setup and maintain than bind9, you should think about using it.
DNS with bind9 and DHCP on Ubuntu 16.04 also works on a Raspberry PI 3 running the Ubuntu Image.
Installing Munin on Ubuntu 16.04 is not the hard. Munin is a monitoring system that runs over the network for the local server and remote servers. It monitors all the basics out of the box.

Welcome to Mail Server on Ubuntu 16.04 Part 2. This is the second part of a series of blog posts. The mailserver will use Postfix, Dovecot and Amavis. To see Mail Server on Ubuntu 16.04 Part1 follow the link.
In Mail Server on Ubuntu 16.04 Part 2 we will turn on the ability for any user to send and receive emails once they are know to the system.
To send an email with telnet from Linux you only need an open terminal and telnet. Then it is simply a matter of opening a connection to your server and sending it some commands. It is the same commands that your GUI mail client will be doing.
