Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS is the corporate desktop and technical workstation solution, and is not certified to run third party ISV server applications.

Network infrastructure services such as Backup, Directory, Authentication, DNS, and DHCP, and advanced firewalling with iptables are provided and supported only as part of Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES or AS.

Capabilities are included with WS to assist in the sharing of local data and resources with other machines on a network:

  • File Serving through NFS and Samba

  • Print serving with CUPS

  • Firewall for protection of local resources

Additional server technologies which are included in WS:

  • Apache for the development and testing of web servers

  • Mail serving (Sendmail/Postfix) for local sending and delivery of email.
