Tangerine was a 486DX2-50MHz system with 16 Megabytes of RAM and 450 Megabytes of disk space, running a completely custom distribution of Linux 2.0.x. Tangerine functioned as a peering point for the Netware-oriented FCPS network and our own UNIX-oriented network. As FCPS has a mostly stable T1 line to the Internet, tangerine functions as a proxy for outgoing services inside the Computer Systems Lab such as HTTP and FTP where reliability is not critical. As certain machines relied on Tangerine to forward IP packets between the Computer Systems Lab and the FCPS network (namely www.tjhsst.edu and windows-based PCs on the FCPS network), it was one of the most stable system in the lab. Brent Metz was the primary administrator for Tangerine.
