    Default Untangle Box..Other uses?

    I currently have a basic peer to peer file server.

    Quad Core machine running Windows XP Professional and I simply have it running to share files. (Couple of large drives)

    I am new to Untangle, and excited to try playing with it.

    I plan to use this computer (Put new HDD in it and install Untangle)

    My question is, If I fall in love with this firewall (Im sure I will) is there a way to use it as a file server at the same time? Or does this system only run itself, and no other options.


    Thanks in advance! And sorry if this is an already asked question, I did look an didnt see if it was asked before.

    You can customize it, but it isn't supported.

    Incidentally, IMHO, it's a really bad idea to put files on your "security" device.
