    Default Link 1 OS

    Ok, firstly apologies if this type of thread has been made countless times, however, I've had problems searching for the answer.

    My goal: Set up a private SSH proxy on Port 21 (the FTP Port by default) and use the least amount of RAM possible.

    Of course, I chose the Xen option when I ordered the VPS, and now I have to choose an OS. I'm thinking CentOS or Debian, what's your preference/advice?

    Thanks,

    Debian or CentOS with more preference for Debian.

    each is fine but most small devices with low memory uses debian so there are probably more guides to reduce memory for it.

    64 is more then enough to run a tunnel with ssh. Also if there's a question about what distro to use the answer is Ubuntu. You'll get more support for Ubuntu faster then you can with Debian. That's not to say there's anything wrong with Debian. I use it and love it, however Ubuntu to nicer to people new to linux then Debian is.
