What is the most awesome module/feature for NethServer, that does not yet exist?


I do that.
I have hacked the backup-data script to use duplicity support for ssh/sftp.
The question is: where did I put my notes? :smile:
Have to connect to the server and have a look. Stay tuned.


so in that case may I suggess another awesome module/feature might help you too :stuck_out_tongue:
Laverna : https://laverna.cc/

I like laverna.
I found my notes but have to get the script.

duplicity collection-status --archive-dir /var/lib/nethserver/backup/duplicity sftp://root@SERVER:PORT//REMOTE_PATH

I moved a post to a new topic: Samba 4 on NethServer

Hi, it would be interesting to implement a video conferencing module.

For work, I installed openmeeting. It works very well and all the necessary features are present.
It allows you to manage users with different security levels, multiple rooms (webcam, audio, whiteboard, desktop and documents sharing, chat), calendar of events and invitations via email

A didactic purpose I tried to install it in Nethserver successfully. Unfortunately, no packages are dedicated and installation requires several steps.
Still it works perfectly

Did you eard about OSSIM ?

It base on Debian having a ntop, openvas, nagios, inventory (i think it’s GLPI) and ticket system all interacting together.
They have a community and professionnal version.

It is possible to do something similar with NethServer ?
For what I see now, it just missing the OpenVas, GLPI, the ticket system and the integration :stuck_out_tongue:

But for IT in small/medium compagnies what crucial after email, I think it’s having inventory and a ticket system to have a big picture of what’s going on, and a must to have an openVas scanning to prevent threat.

What dou you think about Nethserver to act as a NAS ?

Which software do you suggest? Do you have tried to install and configure something on NethServer? How it works?

It`s not properly based on software but based on webgui modules such theses from Webmin:

With existing Nethserver modules like file sharing, Nethserver could easily beconme a NAS.

We could get inspiration from OMV, FreeNAS and NAS4Free and webmin.

If we get inspiration from Webmin, all recent versions of Webmin are under a BSD-like licence, meaning that it may be freely distributed and modified for commercial and non-commercial use.

Again, thinking out loud here – a user here not a developer – just wishful thinking.

Will it be possible (well as the title suggest --What is the most awesome module/feature for NS, hat does not yet exist?) take file server and collaboration a notch higher? I mean, a document management system and perhaps project management? With standard versioning/check-in-check-out feature? Look perhaps LogicalDocs and/or Alfresco.

And after that, a whole bunch of CRM/ERP :beers: :scream:

Please can you suggest a specific open source software? If Centos packages are already available is better :smile:


For a DMS software, I know a little LetoDMS.
I know because it`s in the catalog of Softaculous.

As ERP software…
I don`t know, but take a look at:
I have already eard about Dollibar, But without more knowledge about it…

As far as I know Alfresco Community Edition (LGPL v.3), LogicalDoc CE (LGPL v.2) and a whole bunch of DMS are Open Source :grinning: , if CentOS package is available, I’m not sure. But I have read both requires Java/TomCat bundles. :cold_sweat: I’ve just set both as an example as those are the ones which might have been popular in their fields.

I just want to add, feature such as Access Control and work-flow would be nice as well as OCR recognition.

Now now now, let’s not get carried away, I know we have limited resources…again, just thinking out loud that these would be nice to have. Its not in a hurry and no expectation.

Great day everyone and a nice weekend ahead!

Thanks @alefattorini, I had not searched in the forum…just browsed if DMS is included in NS features/modules. Be forwarned though, I have tested Alfresco Share (5.0.d) in a virtual environment (not NS) and it seems a hungry beast, it needs atleast 2GB of RAM else the installation will not push through, but it seems to be one of the better DMS out there.

I find nothing about this feature…

I would like a page where to stop or restart one or more service(s)…

What do you think about a Plex Media Server module?

I know that Plex is for home use, a media server…
But, at the same time, more user can simply help Nethserver and the comunity to grow.
