3.5. Image Retrieval

The last phase of this project will enable you to retrieve your pictures from across the Internet. You will set up a web server on your computer, configure your software and hardware firewalls to forward web traffic, and finally install IDS.

3.5.1. 1. Install Apache

Many of the projects in this book rely on being able to remotely access your computer. For example, in order to monitor your home security system while on vacation, you'll need to be able to pull up a web browser at an Internet café and connect to your home computer. Connecting your home system to the Internet has a lot of potential: you could fire up your air conditioning if you're coming home early from work; you could listen to your home music collection over the Internet; or you could even schedule a show to record from your desk at work if you forget to set the VCR.
