Hi Everyone,
Thank you for the warm welcome!

My name is Alex I am from canada,
I discovered opensource about a year ago and totally fell in love with the concept. ( I know, took me awhile!)
I was looking into monitoring solutions and stumbled across so many different opensource projects.
Since then I have been looking for software that can replace paid alternatives (ex: Slack, Microsoft anything, Monitoring)

I recently found out about Nethserver and I really love it, I have a small company and can’t afford to pay licenses for microsoft windows server.

I have been using Nethserver as a DC for a couple of days so far and I am really impressed.

I am a system administrator in a mostly microsoft environnement.
I have been working on my linux skills for about a year now and I am looking to get certified this year.
Linux and opensource is now a passion for me and I read about different projects and train myself for about 10 hours a week. I would be honored to help the nethserver community with testing and feedback!

Thank you for having me!
Sorry about my english, french is my first language.


We open source :slight_smile: so make yourself at home

Like Mattermost?

:grin::grin::grin: We are proud to have you here. How can we move forward and improve your knowledge?

As French it is great, my English sucks. Don’t worry /cc @stephdl

I have been looking into mattermost, it looks great. I am testing rocketchat at the moment!
I didn’t get the chance to play alot with my nethserver DC so far but any tips regarding:
Samba Directory & Shares
DHCP with dynamic dns updates
Limitation of RSAT tools with nethserver?

Would be appreciated.
That is the main thing I will do with nethserver atm.
I didnt get a chance to look at all the features yet, VPN is definetly interesting!

Sure the french community is a bit tiny, but it is growing.


How does it look? I’m a huge fan of Mattermost, I hope to see it on NethServer soon.

Its pretty good, the best thing is that all the features are free.
