Bon giorno Marco!
As you might know, almost all Swiss love bella Italia! And I’ve been to Genua - it’s been a few years back, but I do recall Brignole and PP, the stations where I landed or left Genova…
I can understand italian fairly well, can also speak a bit - and write even less!
I too am working from home office, since Monday we have a lockdown here. Not quite as strict as in Italy, but only food shops are open, public transport at least 50% less. All restaurants, bars, even hairdressers are closed. Roads are fairly empty. We don’t need to have to “walk the dog” to go outside, as i hear is becoming popular in Italy at the moment.
Hope you guys can control the corona as fast a China was able to do… Wish you guys all the best!
Hey, we swiss love having vacation in bella Italia, and you guys do understand something about Dolce Vita!!! And vacation is coming up fast…
I’d keep the Nethserver, i use both for most of my clients. I like having the doorkeeper (firewall) do nothing else, to keep routing and firewalling simple. In all my clients networks, NethServer is running the AD, and that alone tends to make routing / firewalling more complicated. The AD is basically a Linux Container/Jail with it’s own IP, running in NethServer. Sure NethServer CAN handle this situation, I just prefer having it separate…
Just for your info: There are some great software out there for printing solutions… Like PaperCut, which runs very well on NethServer. It’s free for up to 3 users, but there are almost equal open source (and completly free) software for this… I use it mainly for architects and engineers, most also use plotters, and they bill their clients by the square cm (cm2)… (!).
Your problem would stop VERY fast, if your boss were to deduct the printed expenses from what the people are printing!
Nethserver with Zabbix can give you nice monitoring, and also usage stats.
But NethServer with Cups is a very good basis!
PS: One of my clients is also the Italian state, an organization with about 40-50 people, in Zurich, Geneva and Lugano. They’re also running NethServer as AD and as file server (And Nextcloud, and, and, and!)…
My 2 cents
