Firstly, since this is my first post here, I wish to thank you for the Dev. Team for making this awsome system. It helps me a lot mainly because of the following:
- It has PPPoE option
- I can set static IP addresses for DHCP easily
- It has IPS / IDS
- I can set firewall rules fairly easy
I just have one question regarding to useage: When I want to use the IPS, I constantly get an error when I make a modification with the rule level. The error sais:
Task completed with errors # (exit status )
Where can I look up the logs about it, so I can provide you some more information about the issue?
Also, where can I see, for example, banned IP-s, who’ve tried to SSH into our server and have been banned by Snort? At least I hope it bans and logs them. This should be a good feature for the IPS site and not for the Log.
Another thing is I’ve found that the IPS is using Snort. I know Snort quite well, but I’ve been using Fail2Ban with more joy and effectiveness. Have you ever considered using it instead of Snort?
Hope I’ve not asked stupid questions. Looking forward hearing from you!

P.S.: Do not ever remove the PPPoE funcion please since this is the only out-of-the-box server that still has it! Not ClearOS, nor Zentyal has it anymore… This makes NethServer very unique and awsome.
