Hello, I’m french, I’ve used SME for a long time, but I want to move to newer tech so when I’ve seen Nethserver, I’ve knew it can be awesome. And when in my association our SME server started to bug because of an very old SME, I’ve take the opportunity to migrate to Nethserver. So I use Nethserver for one week now, and I like it. I work on CentOS/Fedora for a very long time, so I really like the base of Nethserver, and because Nethserver respect the CentOS spirit it really great for my work. It’s quite possible that I will try to build Nethserver for ARM (Olimex lime2 a20) for little server with arm cpu and sata.


Moving from SME server to NethServer

Hello everybody!

My name is Gabriel GHEORGHIU and I am from Romania.

I’m using Windows from about 22 years and I’m working at AB T&Co from about 14 years in IT&C Department and in Medical Department as Service Engineer.

I have started to search for Linux (applications and distros) from December 2013 because of the need to replace Windows ($$) where is possible (E-mail Server, Gateway/Proxy/ UTM, DNS, PDC, WEB Server, Video Surveillance Server, …).

I found Zentyal and I have thought that it’s ok for our needs.

As I have written on this Forum, I think is safer to use dedicated machines for different tasks and I have started using Zentyal as Standalone E-mail Server.

After that I had to replace Forefront TMG. I found Endian.
I’m using Endian UTM Community from February 2015 as a replacement for Forefront TMG, after I tried Sophos, IPCop, PfSense and I’m very pleased.

On Zentyal Forum I read about NethServer and I decided to try it.

Today, Alessio asked me if I can make a comparison between Endian UTM and NethServer.
I’m during a learning process, not only with NS but also with Linux generally and therefore I need more time to do the comparison.
I will try to do that, like Alessio said on this Forum, module to module.
Maybe there are here and others that use Endian and we can work together.

Pleased to meet you all!

Kind regards,
Gabriel

PS
I apologize for this long introduction!

What should every newcomer know about NethServer?

Hey folks,

I’m new to neth server and came across by searching for an alternative to zentyal.
I’m an IT admin in a small to midsize enterprise in germany and quite familiar with Ubuntu server, zentyal and VMware.
Right now I’m focusing on building a mailserver and an exchange alternative and I’m thinking about to use neth and sogo for it.
I like that neth seems to be very stable, the easy way of management and the module based concept.
A nice to have would be the possibility to connect several nethserver to each other (ldap), to separate services and making backup management more flexible at VM level, but we are already discussing it on another thread :wink:


(Paul Farrar) #198

Hi All

I came across NethServer from an article in Linux Format. I have just installed XenServer on a HP Micro Server at home and wanted to add some VM’s to it. I was going to use Ubuntu but after reading the articl changed my mind and started with a NethServer instance. I plan to run a number of services so may end up with a couple of instances each doing different functions.


#200

Hello,

I’m a french guy living in Brazil.
I always want to improve my knowledge and my network.
Insatisfied with an Ubiquity Edge router, I was looking for a gateway/router appliance like pfsense or ipcop…
I finally choose a cheaper Hp Microserver with ClearOs.
But afer initials steps with ClearOs, I was looking for another thing like SME or CentOs and discover Nethserver.

I’ve try it and love it.


(Alessio Fattorini) #201

Ehi Pascal, welcome aboard!
Did you have already read some Zentyal discussions? There are a lot of Zentyal experts around :wink: A few examples:
Moving from Zentyal to NethServer: questions about how to do a few things
Moving (?) from Zentyal to nethserver
Zentyal vs NethServer comparison matrix
Moved from Zentyal 4,1 to NethServer release 6.6 (Final) in hours!
eMail move from Zentyal to nethserver - newbie questions!


(Alessio Fattorini) #202

That’s awesome! Paper still rocks :wink:

Where are you from and what you’re working on?
Please keep us in touch about your achievements!


(Alessio Fattorini) #203

Ehi Jim, welcome among NethServer people!
How have you found NethServer?

We have other Brazilian guys /cc @pedro_gustavo @ibinetwork or would you like to know french people? :wink:


#204

I was googling around ClearOs / SME Koozali / CentOS based distro…
Or perhaps distrowatch.com, I don`t remember :fearful:

I would like to know them, I hope to be here for a long time


(Alessio Fattorini) #205

@cyberfrk @petralemoisson and @Crazyusb just to name a few :wink:


(luisr) #206

I’m Luis, from Cuba, I am Engineer in Telecommunications and Electronics now i work as Network Administrator and IT consultant.
initially i was looking at something similar or better than Zentyal…


(Paul Farrar) #207

I am from the UK and live about 40 miles North of London. I work in IT but the NethServer is for home use.

When I had the house electrically re-wired (the old stuff was very old and probably not safe) a few years ago, I followed the electricians round and ran Ethernet cables to all the rooms in the house.

I do not have a specific project on the go, but I want to make my home a smart home so intend to use a lot of IoT technology, stream media all over the house, add security and add features like centralized local backup up, file servers, a group-ware calendar, smart heating and lighting to name just some.

At the moment I am in the evaluation phase, so NethServer or servers could form the base platforms for a number of tasks. I have the core network, I need a good FW but will probably go with pfsense for that on dedicated hardware, but the rest will be VM’s and a NAS with the family laptops, 2 PC’s, 1 MAC, 1 Xbox, 1 WII, 2 Sky HD boxes, several phones and about 5 Raspberry Pi’s (so far) and Arduino’s for the IoT stuff all taking back to the servers.
