The server is a Compaq Prosignia 500 machine that was retired from use as a fileserver for GP Care last year. It has 148MB of RAM, 11GB of hard disk space and runs a Pentium 120 MHz processor. It is attached to the network (10MB/sec ethernet) with its own IP address.
It runs a GNU/Linux operating system (Slackware 7.1), Apache, INN and Samba.
You'll notice that local files download pretty quick :-)
