Access point server which grabs Wifi to ethernet

Good evening,

i have installed a fedora server and i want to run this one as a mediaserver and as an access point server which should hide my desktop computer behind.

has someone an idea?

Hi @stormcatcher!

For mediaserver you have a number of various options, depending on what exactly you want. One of the most easy and universal one probably being a Plex – though it’s not a truly free software (it’s free as in beer), but it’s really easy top setup and use.

There’s also minidlna – very simple and easy to get running DLNA media server.

For WiFi access point you can use hostapd. There’s some potential issues with it, we’ll discuss it further if you’re interested.
