Thousands Nethserver instances in the world!

The 2500 isn’t here, but we are in hollidays and between Chrismas and the new year, a little drink between friends is a good moment
And who know is this traditional brazilian drink will not bring more users :grin:

Traditional Caipirinha

2-4 lime wedges (to taste)
1-2 teaspoons sugar (to taste)
1 cup of crushed or cubed ice
1.5-2.5 oz. of cachaça (to taste)

Making a Traditional Caipirinha

  • Slice your lime. Cut it in half, then into quarters. Use the slices from approximately one quarter of the lime in the drink – 3 to 4 slices. Brazilian recipes typically call for more lime: ½ to even a whole small lime.[5] Adjust the amount to your taste.

  • Put the limes and sugar in a glass. It is preferable
    to use a rocks glass (aka a lowball glass). Use 2 teaspoons of sugar for
    a sweeter drink, one for a drink with more of the cachaça flavor.

  • Muddle the sugar and lime. Muddle them by pressing down and twisting repeatedly with a muddler – a long pestle shaped like a miniature baseball bat. Crush the limes just enough to release their juice. If you mash them too much, your drink will be bitter.
    If you don’t have a muddler, just use the back of a spoon.

  • Add the ice. Crushed ice is best, though cubed will work fine.

  • Add the cachaça and stir. Recommendations from American bartenders range from 2 oz. (a little over a shot) for a sweeter, tarter drink, to 2.5 oz. (about two shots) for a stronger drink. Brazilian recipes, which are typically heavier on lime and lower on alcohol, usually call for 1.7oz (50ml).

  • Serve with the lime wedges in the drink. Enjoy!


I love such howtos! :sparkling_heart:

I think Amaricans and Canadians like the caipirinha… Since the last time I looked the map:

So? 100 installations every two weeks, not bad! :grinning:

I will go to Salvador today to the last installation Nethserver (Proxy).

Total servers installed in the company.
2 Sao Paulo
1 Rio de Janeiro
1 Recife


Super cool @alexcsilva!
Are those installs all connected using the same domain? Can you tell us a bit about your setup? We love to hear some usecases!

Near 3000 :smile:


I love rounded numbers


I changed the title! Bear in mind that these are ACTIVE installations :slight_smile:

Hey Hey, I’m that one single install from Pakistan :smiley:


yes, it is! Just one? You have to multiple it! Which kind of installation do you have? Business, personal or just test? Which modules ?

At the moment, it’s a test installation … aiming to deploy in production at a small business.

My primary need was a web-filter with https filtering capability, and with provision for multiple profiles so that some users can be given access to certain things while others get access to other things.

I’ve tested quite a few free distros and this one seems the most promising.

Hey, one question though … why is nethserver not covered/promoted anywhere on the web? Before doing my testing on other distros, I did the obvious thing and googled for free solutions … did not see any mention of nethserver in any reviews/guides/product-advertisement/comparisons/etc on the first 3 pages of google results.

I only stumbled across nethserver through someone mentioning it in the endian community firewall forum.

Got it, you’re right :slight_smile:
Indeed, we need to improve our site and SEO profile (any good SEO around?)
What are you searching? Which keywords have you used?

Can you show us the link from endian forum?

At that point, I was getting an SSL certificate error while using https filtering on endian community firewall, so I was searching for “endian community ssl certificate error”.

Generally, for the past two days, I’ve used combinations of “https filter” “webfilter” “block https” “application block”, things like that. Which brings me a question again: any plans on introducing an application filter like untangle uses? I’ve found that to be the most effective for blocking stuff at application level, instead of relying on other methods. Obviously, I have no idea how it works since I’m not a dev, or even a linux guy. Primarily, skype and teamviewer are the problematic apps that I’m looking at.

Sorry, I’ve tried searching my history, but I can’t locate that page again :frowning:

I don’t think you will find something about NethServer on Endian forum (at list on, even on italian forum ( but you will find on Zentyal forum (I think that the first mention was on July 27, 2014).
