I sell quite a few servers and currently I seem to be selling more open source servers than Windows based servers.
Currently I use Zentyal community versions however long term it’s a poor strategy as the updates seem to be the issue (breaking the install) and with the current hysteria surrounding security I’m now looking for a Linux server that has proper support (security that is!).
I have had a look at Neth server and it appears to offer what I mainly use, namely VPN/Samba AD, dhcp and DNS. Also the internet filter looks a good utility too.
So whats the deal with Neth? I don’t expect free, even if you pay for the product you still save a fortune compared to MS as you don’t need CALS. Does one buy the server software or just elements of it and whats the deal with security updates?
