Question about IBM Netfinity 4000R 8652 Server
I was looking at Servers and wanting information on it. Will a Server speed up my Internet connection and protect my PCs from spamware software from off the internet?
It depends on what you do with the server, a server may be just another computer or a great help.
You can use your server as a Web Cache server, this means that the server will storage all the webapges your users access, so, when somebody wants to open a webpage the server will download only the updated parts of the webpage, that will save time and the users will think everything is faster.
Yet a server won't give you a faster internet conenction per se, it just optimized your resources, a server can also be a firewall or an antispam, so your network won't have undesired traffic coming from internet, so less trafic, faster network ^_^ .
Yet again, if you only buy a server, then plug it into your network and turn it on does not make anything. You will need to install/configure diferent solutions (sometimes you will need to buy them).
I recommend you to go with Linux, it is free, open source and there is plenty of documentation out there.
