I have a client that wants to use X10 Cameras for security around his house. On top of this, he wants to setup a little server so that he can monitor the house when he goes away on vaction. Since security of the machine is a priority for him, I suggested OpenBSD + SSHv2 + Apache/mod_ssl. My questions are:
1) do X10 Cameras work well with OpenBSD?
2) is there anything special that needs to be done to share their info with Apache?
3) Is it better to do this or to setup the OpenBSD box as a VPN endpoint and show him how to dial in and view from another box?
This is certainly not the sort of question we see every day, and I haven't turned up much of anything useful on the mailing list archives either. The only thing I recall reading recently about X10 was completely unrelated to OpenBSD. Hopefully some of our readers have some experience or ideas (or have better mailing list searching skills).
