Welcome to NethServer Community

My friend @davide_marini was a huge fan too! Chat with him if you want :wink:

Hi folks!

Dave Land here in the middle of the Gila National Forest in wild and wooly western New Mexico (U.S.A.) :smiley:
I’m 58 and have been in the computer biz for 16+ years. I’m a born ‘tinker’ and like to try new distros and hardware. Also have been in the auto and small engine repair business for 40+ years, but trying to get away from the auto part of it, as I get older. I switched to Nethserver 6.6 after numerous issues with SME-server 9 over the last several months, and so far I’m pretty impressed, especially with the other users and developers that have helped me through the minor issues I’ve encountered along the way. You guys are GREAT!

I’m also involved with the HPPA Linux project to an extent, as I have a few HP PA-RISC boxes here that I use periodically, plus I currently have 1 HP J6750 Visualize Workstation acting as a buildd server for the distro, that builds and uploads to debian-ports.org. It’s maintained by Helge Deller, one of the developers in Germany, along with several other machines in various places around the world.

That’s about it for me. I’ll stay tuned for changes and updates as they happen. Good work guys! :wink:

Take a look at this:

Good morning Alessio

Samuel are Cialdini .Lavoro At SoftOne Srl are of Ravenna.

I met Nethesys by a visit here at our headquarters in Joseph Trianti … From them and 'born interest in the product.

On the advice of Joseph I began to assess the version comunity, and hence the reason for registration.

Now I have not got to experience, but now I hope to have some time now to look at us.

I’ll definitely need information on the groupware, sharing contacts and calendars: Cristian Manoni told me that some features are only in the Enterprise version, I wanted to understand and sove 'the border between the two worlds …

We talk to you soon

Buongiorno Alessio

Sono Samuele Cialdini .Lavoro Presso SoftOne Srl
Sono di Ravenna.

Ho conosciuto Nethesys tramite una visita qui alla nostra sede di Giuseppe
Trianti… Da li e’ nato interesse verso il prodotto.

Su consiglio di Giuseppe ho iniziato a valutare la versione comunity, e da
qui il motivo della registrazione.

Subito non ho avuto modo di sperimentare , ma spero ora di avere un po di
tempo ora per guardarci.

Sicuramente avro bisogno di informazioni sulla parte groupware ,
condivisione contatti e calendari: Cristian Manoni mi diceva che alcune
feature sono solo nella versione Enterprise, volevo capire sove e’ il
confine tra i due mondi …

Ci sentiamo presto



I am Kenneth Rasmussen and have just arrived here at Nethserver Community.
I live in Denmark, and is working as a IT consultant/technician at Lundberg Data A/S.
We have a small hosting center, there our customers uses Windows terminal servers, to access there programs, like C5 Navision, and office products. We have several Exchange and SQL servers as well.
We are always looking for ways to do things better and cheaper, and under the search for this, I found Nethserver. Nethserver looks promising, so we have started to test it, to see if this could be a part of our future setup.

Have a nice day

Hi everybody,

A brief description …:wink:

I am French and I found Nethserver when I was looking an alternative to Zentyal and new directions that were not utils for me.

I use the modules: web filter&proxy, firewall, dhcp/dns, fileserver.


salut camarade

La traduction Française aurait besoin d’une relecture pour vérifier l’absence de bug de traduction --> https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/nethserver/

no sé si tu aurais le temps d’y jeter un oeuil

Ehi Samuele! Welcome, feel free to ask whatever you want :wink:
This comparison could work for you:

Ehi Kennet, welcome to Denmark!
Please let us know what miss from your point of view and how we can improve it!

France is getting stronger here :wink: welcome among us! And thanks for your work on translations…

Hi Alessio

My name is Kristian and i’m from Sweden. I work as an Infrastructure Specialist and SAP Basis Administrator.

My goals are to be able to translate business, information and application architectures into solutions that are effective in a real world setting.

What motivates me most is knowing what I do makes a difference and pushing solutions to their limit. I enjoy mentoring, inspiring and motivating others to innovate: helping them think outside the box and showing them there are multiple solutions to any problem.

I have found that differences in opinion can be more readily overcome with empathy than by being judgemental or trying to impose my views on others.

I have besides my work a Consultant firm were i help SME and recently decided to change course with a new startup company and heavily focus on pure European Open Source projects and educate SME in maintaining high integrity and Security in there day to day IT struggle when making decisions. For this i need products that can be replace all propriety software.

I have been working with MS products for over 20 years now and the last 7 years I fell in love with open source. Due to the fact that I believe that true security can only be archived with open source systems and therefore i started to search for projects that could help me to archive my goals.

I came here after I have been testing Zentyal server as a replacement and the latest announcement just didn’t convinced me anymore that the product is something i want to invest in. I’m very much interested in the Enterprice versions and of course in the community version to contribute and keep the project going in any way I can.

All the best to you all,

Hi Alessio,

I’m Andrea from Zero100, Italy. I was at Nethesis Partner Meeting last friday, and besides several compelling topics, and a couple of very unusual high-heeled developers, I got very interested in NethMonitor with its integration between Nagios and OCS. I work mainly on Microsoft, SLES and VMware these days, but I come back to Nagios (usually with check_mk on top) from time to time. I’m after ease of configuration and a pretty interface (and push notification to a mobile app): I see Nagios, Adagios and OCS + New theme are listed as part of the Community Edition:


so I look forward to try them in a couple of weeks.

Thanks for your welcome,



Hi @andreac now you are part of the crew!

Yes these unusual developers are the key to win! :wink:
