first of all I apologize for my English

My name is Roberto Schiano, I’m from Porto Santo Stefano ITA.
My job is IT technician to SBM (Small and medium-sized enterprises).

I have a windows server experiences and recently I looked at the Open Source. I accidentally discovered Nethserver that could solve many problems.
I installed nethserver several times already and I’m trying.



Hello all,
My name is Dale Cliett and I’m from the USA.
I work in IT with windows server, desktop, and mac but Linux is my hobby that I hope to one day
make a career out of.
I came across Nethserver while trying to find alternatives to Zentyal and Sophos.
Shout out to the Devs, great job on Nethserver!
Best Wishes,

Ehi Dale,
happy to see you here and welcome. What do you do for work? Which kind of company is your?

Did you find a good alternative? Why?

Ehi Roberto welcome here, I’m so sorry for the late response!
Thanks for posting and introducing yourself.
If you would like to help, I would love to see your participation too. How would you like to be involved?
Please share your challenges and tests :slight_smile:

Sophos was full of features, but I needed more than just a firewall so after about a year I tried Zentyal. Zentyal was good and I used it as my Domain Controller, firewall, and vm host server for about a year but when it crashed during an update I decided to go with Nethserver instead.
I work in IT in a Windows server and desktop environment with some apple pc as well.
