Introduction

Over the last seven years, AnandTech has grown from a small motherboard review website to an entire community and cornerstone of the computer industry. For the millions who read AnandTech each month, we are pleased to announce our newest contributing writer, Brian Ng. Brian has over 10 years of experience in academic networks and we are very excited to call him our new networking expert. And here, we present the first of many upcoming networking reviews.

The old adage, "don't judge a book by its cover", holds especially true for the Post Genie. It looks like a very early prototype of an IPod that, for some reason, the designers painted with mid-80s faded green paint. But what is the Post Genie? Armor Link's Post Genie is an all-in-one router, web/email server, and print server appliance. It is targeted at small businesses and home offices that may not want the hassle or even have the expertise of running a Linux box with qmail or Windows with Exchange. Our Post Genie is running Linux with kernel 2.4.18, with Apache for the web server and qmail.

    Very interesting. If the system is reliable, then the $1000 price isn't bad at all. Reply

    It would be great to have a networking section on the website to easily find networking related articles since you know have a staffer for networking. Reply

    As far as I know, Net-Itech http://www.net-itech.com/ did this several years ago and is still doing it. Reply

    "Anand - review the Geode!!! Pleeeease"


    I agree. I thought the 1Ghz versions are SocketA. That and they are supposed to kill the VIA cpus in perormance and offer lower power.

    Also has anybody seen them forsale yet?

    Why the 8 LAN ports, isn't this too much for very small offices? Or this is an all in one solution. No switch required?

    The idea is good it only need's redefining.

    Good review - well written. I'd been hoping that AT would have more networking-related articles, so it's good to see they brought you on board. Keep up the good work. Reply
