JaseP's User Set-up

This page describes my LinuxMCE 10.04 system setup. Excuse the dust while I improve the page. I am located in Eastern Pennsylvania (USA), in a cable TV rich region (in/near the birthplace of cable television). I am a Linux/Open Source enthusiast and (amateur) advocate, having been a Linux user for 10+ years.

Network Environment

Micasaverde Vera (external router/primary Z-wave controller) --> Core (LinuxMCE services, incl. DHCP, DCE router, Secondary Z-wave controller, External Hard Drives, Telephony) --> Wired/Wireless Access Points (DHCP server disabled & provided by the Core) --> Media Directors, Orbiters & non-LinuxMCE devices
