Thank you very much for the welcome. I will try briefly to make my presentation.

My name is Manuel Cabrera Caballero, I’m Cuban and I live more than 17 years ago in Bogota Colombia, my second homeland.
Working with Linux since kernel 1.0 thanks to a Swiss who visited my country and introduced me to slackware. After working with debian, redhat, fedora, CentOS, Ubuntu, etc.
Currently I have a motorcycle accessories store and a travel agency with my wife maintaining systems with open source solutions. When I’m not traveling by motorbike I investigate new open source systems, so reach nethserver.
have some clients who would I offer consultations, keep a blog of opensource (
In short, I am a faithful follower of open source. I hope to support the community in my spare time.


Hi Guys,

Thanks for warm welcome!

I am Rahul Dhakan from Ahmedabad, India. I have been working on Linux and Open Source since 10+ years and now exclusively working on Linux systems integration with cloud especially Amazon web services.

I am using SonicWall at my head office which has 300+ users and using PfSense at other two branch office where we are having 70+ & 20+ users respectively. I am using PfSense since 3 years however facing issue when using it in combination of MultiWAN & Proxy + squidguard filter so have tried different option and seems like NethServer worth to try.

Currently exploring NethServer for production and let you know result shortly. I am again thankful to everyone and wish a successful day !

Welcome to the community Manuel! And a great howto (in Spanish)


Thank you for the welcome.

I am Benjamin from Germany and 34 years old. I am currently working on replacing my opensuse system with an appliance solution like nethserver. Easier updating is one of the goals I would like to achieve. The next one is using features for which I do have to completely understand the configuration. So I tested some distributions as you can read here.
Hopefully Nethserver can give me all that things I need. :slight_smile: But still now all is very fine.


Happy New Year everyone. Benjamin, welcome! thank you for giving NethServer a spin and yes, hopefully NethServer satisfies your needs. Community’s here to help you out.
