Dear list,

currently following the Sun certified web component developer course,
I want to set up a http web server @ home to practice.
I plan to virtualize a Arch server on my Arch box.

I know we can talk about pro/con for hours, but I am interested in
knowing your advices about the following apps:
-http server : Apache or Nginx (curious to test the later)
-container for my servlets : Tomcat ?
-secure ftp server : ???

maybe a mail server: ???

I guess ssh will be the best way to talk to the server.

Maybe other stuffs I forgot?

What is the most common and simple way to secure the whole stuff
without loosing too much responsiveness?

Thank you for your advices.
