I live in Brazil, more precisely in itaguaí- (Rio de Janeiro).

I’m doing several tests, thinking of replacing a windows2012 server (AD - PDC) and add a PROXY.

I work at city hall, and had good results with webproxy for up to 700 stations.

When I see all the possibilities, I ask myself:

It’s crazy using the community version for so many stations?

One thing is right. Has a nethserver running here!

Do I make part of these “2000 Nethserver instances in the world”?

How many windows server are you replacing?
If I’m well understand you are replacing ONE windows Server by ONE Nethserver.,
Nethserver is capable to do the same job as Windows 2012.

Before your inscription there was 19 Nethservers in Brazil… Now there 's 20

Did you enter data in the module “organisation contact”?
If the answer is yes…You are a part of the 2000 :smiley:


No @Jim, to appear on the map you have to select “Contribute to usage statistics” on the first configuration wizard.

For Routing,Firewall,Proxy,VPN,DHCP i use pfSense
For Hypervisor i use Proxmox
For Backup i use OpenMediaVault

Now i find NethServer because I am looking for alternative to MS Exchange server and MS Outlook client.I don’t have MS Exchange server and i don’t want it.I want local email server that it will work as email client.
In more detail, I want the local email server to download and store the email from multiple email domains and acoounts.

I have tested Zimbra and Zentyal solution but it didn’t support multi-SMTP for one account, like MS outlook client.

User login as and that user can send and recieve from

Is this possible with Nethserver (SelfHosting)?
