Creation of an ISP site for the HTI computer studies department using open source software
Abstract:The primary purpose of the project is to provide a solution to the problems due to the lack of internet services provided to the students of the Computer Studies department of the Higher Technical Institute in Nicosia.,: The most serious problems we have to solve throughout this project are:
.. The complete lack of official hosting sefVlces for student's projects on the
.. The lack of broadband Internet access as well as Internet services like e-mail
accounts to the students and teachers of the Computer Studies Department
through the local area network of the CS department.
II The lack of official hosting of the Computer Studies Department Web page on the
II The provision of access to the department's LAN andlor Internet from the homes
of the students and teachers of the department either through dial up cOlmections
or VPN services.
Throughout the process of the analysis of the system we will investigate the problems we
are faced with and recommend different solutions for these problems. After the stage of
the analysis we will develop the solution that we will find most suitable.
Some points we have to keep in mind during the development is first that since the CS
Department is a part of an educational institution the expenses and operational costs of
this kind of system must be cut down to the minimum possible. Also the type of software
license we have to keep is specifically stated as the open source type software i.e. GPL
licensed software. And from our experience we know that most people usually do not
understand what open source software is. For more infonnation please refer to the
