Like many others here, after using Zentyal forever, I’m moving to NethServer (the dumping of squid being the last straw).
- I figured out port forwarding. Works great! Where does the firewall come into play? Translation: it appears that it defaults to letting anything use the port that is being forwarded. Can you block some IP addresses from using the port and allow others?
- Port forwarding ranges. I saw where you can set a range of ports to be forwarded (under “Origin port”) but I didn’t see what you put in the “Destination port”. In other words, if I put “20:21” under “Origin port”, what do I put in “Destination port”? Leave it blank? Put in “20:21”?
- Can I enter a range of IP addresses for a entry? This relates to item #1. At times its nice to keep adding IP addresses that you don’t want hitting you and the list gets bigger and bigger.
- Is there a way to use GeoIP list to allow for blocking IPs?
- In Zentyal, there is a way to bypass proxy caching (“Cache Exemptions”, "Auth and Cache Exemptions ", "Transparent Proxy Exemptions "). Is there such a thing here?
- Is there a way to bypass the password complexity requirements? I saw where there is a package under beta.
- Just an FYI: NethServer seems to work great under Esxi. I’m using the VMXNET3 network adapters and the Vmware paravirtual SCSI adapters.
