JOB: Contract - Set up our office LAN
Short term position available for a hardware/network wiz who can help
us get our act together. We're a small not for profit office that
has suddenly exploded, and we need help getting our network organized
and setting up procedures for file sharing, back-ups, remote access,
If you are interested, please review the requirements below and
reply with a resume and estimate (time and $$) for the project. We
envision someone coming in for a day or two asap and then following
up once or twice after that as needed.
Should be a straight forward job for someone with experience setting
up an office LAN. We're not looking for anything too fancy.
- We have 15-20 Macs and PC's
- Most are networked to a printer
- Some of the PC's have PC MacLan to support Appleshare
- Some machines are networked to a Mac doing double duty as a work
machine and a file server
- We have email accounts at various domains, including an AOL
account; interns and floaters have no email
- We have several workers who work from home part time
- We host multiple Web sites off site
- Some computers are for permanent staff, a pool of others are used
by interns and other floaters
- A fledging intranet (really just Web sharing off of someone's Mac)
- We have mastered the sneaker net, and haven't really moved beyond....
- Some of our Macs are antiques.... but some are G4s
- We have a hardware guy here and a handful of interns who are good
at plugging things in and following directions, so you would have
some extra hands on deck.
What we need
- A sensible network arrangement that allows floaters to store their
work on a server and allows file sharing among everyone one else
- Standard procedures for backing up and doing system scans for all machines
- An email arrangement for temporary staff like interns
- A system for transferring files from home computers (even an ftp
will work, but dial in would be fantastic)
- An evaluation of our network security (do we need a firewall)
- An evaluation of our current hardware and future needs
- Some kind of documentation of what has been established so we can
stick to the structure as we grow
- Someone to be nice to us and help us out without getting distressed...
- Someone who can point out what's missing from this list.
Where we are
We're in NJ, a 35 minute bus ride from Port Authority. Easy schlep
from West side, a little longer from Queens and Brooklyn.
What to do
If you are interested, please write me
a personal email explaining who you are and why you are the person
for the job. Please also include your estimate in hours and
dollars, and a reference or three.
