So, what are you working on? 5 february 2018

Hi fellow NethServer lovers. What a week… what a week. I am still thrilled about our meeting at Fosdem in Brussels. A lot of face to face talking with the absolute high of having a room for 1,5 hours in H-building where we were able to discuss the future of NethServer and where @stephdl gave a presentation of his latest work: rspamd service for NethServer mail module.

Besides this great opportunity to meet each other, we again have a lot of new members to welcome:

What are you busy with?



rspamd, sogo and probably containers


There wil be alot to do for you. I’m not a developer, but if I can help anyway, let me know.


Sup! Still busy with my school! :slight_smile: We did some demonstrations in a mall here in my city.

This was my school for the last month:

Some great numbers i got there, now lets work those numbers into new students! :slight_smile:

Yesterday the last contract i had to support some nethservers expired, i´m no longer working with servers, now i´m just a enthusiast. I still have a Nethserver in my own school, but thats it… :stuck_out_tongue:

btw, i´m the bald one… lol
Find DathVader :smiley:


I’m trying to get further familiar with the hotsync module… I will soon share my experiences so far in a separate post on that topic.

Seeing if I can get Horde working with local LDAP authentication rather than active directory, in hopes of getting an easy-to-install module built.


Always good to see that we can have choice in mailserver/collaboration suite choice… Horde can be a great addition to the current available options like Webtop, SOGo and roundcube.

thank michael, I will ping you :slight_smile:


Yeah, I’ve been using Horde for 15+ years (and wrote the initial e-smith-horde and e-smith-imp RPMs), so I’d like to be able to stay with that if I can. I doubt I’ll be able to do anything on the packaging side (I never understood it very well, and that was a long time ago), but if I can at least help document what needs to be done, it’s something…

@stephdl @giacomo @mrmarkuz can you help @danb35 out here?

Build a rpm could be relatively easy on NS, install nethserver-mock, read and you should be ready. After this, looking for nethserver-horde, of course you need a lot of understanding of what is wrong/good. At the end, build a rpm is just putting files in the relevant folder

Horde is in my todo list, but is not the first item :wink:

It is ok, we have also a lot of work.

Currently , i just took a deep dive into the 7.4 version ! My first thing was the installation in a virtual box !

If i get this working , the next step is to install it at a raspberry pi 3.

I must admit this is my first OpenSource-project, Please give me some time for orientation …:wink:


What do you need to lead you into the project? :slight_smile:
Did you find interesting content around?

Can’t wait :star_struck:

Thanks to you guys we are hosting our Email Server in-house. My first time ever :slight_smile:
Thank you for creating such a wonderful piece of software, a welcome part of my life.


Sorry for the late reply but i need some days to look arouround. And i suppose we have all additional stuff to do…

During my years of study i worked with the Snort IDS in a project.

May be this is a good place to start with…

Otherwise suggestions will be appreciated…

Snort is used in NS6, suricata in NS7:

If you like security the complete firewall/gateway part of NS including shorewall, squid, ufdbguard, clamav, openvpn and more may be interesting.
