Today is a short tutorial but is important for anyone using a Mac as a server. I look at a free program that will show you how much upload and download bandwidth you use in a month.
-SurplusMeter – A free application that will allow you to see how much bandwidth your machine is using.
-Macminicolo.net – Macminicolo.net provides the bandwidth and hosting for these tutorials. Once you have your machine set up to run as a server, you may consider hosting it in the macminicolo data center. Starting at $34.99 you are provided with reliable power, a 100mb connection, and a static ip address. More on pricing can be found here.
Note: I am the one that manages all of the minis in the macminicolo data center.
