sorry to hear that all your VPN's were dropped (I hope you did this out of hours!) I think you need to have the MTU set on both sides on the tunnel at the same value. try as Nick suggests, don't do anything with a default route, and just change the MTU. If you can login to your remote router, change the MTU on that and re-start it.

David Clayton replied to the topic Re: SSH problem with multiwan. in the forums.
Not an answer as such, but I have VPN access on one wan, external https on another, and ssh on the third, my view is that if I cant get in on any one I should be able to fix it on another, and if none of them work then I would be travelling to the office anyway! I think its recommend to bind ssh to a single external IP/port for security. I would choose your most reliable wan connection though!

Richard George created a new topic Export email addresses ..? in the forums.
Is there an easy way to export a list of email addresses for users and groups? I want to list them in DynDNS's email user list to improve the front-end spam filtering ?

For the record, ClearOS migration to Bootstrap is in the works:

tharok: Indeed, reducing the number of hard to maintain image files is a very good thing. SVG or fonts can be used for scalable icons that you can apply styles to (ex.: colors). Here is a page with a bunch of links & discussions on the topic: themes.tiki.org/Icons+SVG+or+Fonts

I am involved with SVG-edit, so I would love to have all the icons editable via the browser:

Rhods created a new topic SSH problem with multiwan. in the forums.
Hi, I have a ClearOS 5.2 with 2 wan (eth0) and (eth3) and 1 lan (eth1). The problem is that when the wan link eth0 goes down, I can not access via ssh externally using the wan address of eth3. Already when the wan link eth0 is online, I can access via ssh through the wan address of eth3.
Can someone help me?

Nucleus Gestion replied to the topic Re:Using external OpenLDAP server in the forums.
I don't need it to sync, I just need ClearOS to access an external LDAP server, to retrieve users and groups.

For example : for non-transparent proxy authentification

Paul M. Roman created a new topic ClearOS Community release 6.6.0 Beta (Beta 1) in the forums.

Somehow I have gotten off the mainstream releases and on to a Beta version. I have been searching through the software looking for where I choose what releases I want to be on and update.

Would someone please steer me in the right direction.

Can I stay on 6.6 to Final Release and then update Final Releases after that?

Do I have to reinstall?


Great product. Thank you for your help.

Sorry for the delay - I was on holiday for most of the last couple of weeks

You can access WordPress via a hostname (e.g. wordpress.example.org) or a folder name. It would be nice to have a way to make it the default web site though (e.g. www.example.org). We're hoping to get that done before the final release.

Do you guys by any chance know what the status is of the Samba4 MIT Kerberos integration? I can't find any definite answer - the closest I can find is this link: wiki.samba.org/index.php/Samba_Next_Goal...ive_Directory_Server
RHEL 7 still doesn't support Samba 4 in AD mode. That was a BIG disappointment. We're now investigating if it's possible to deploy Samba 4 even with the Kerberos library issue.

Robert replied to the topic Re:The storage thread (RAID, ZFS, BTRFS, unRAID, FlexRAID, Greyhole..,) in the forums.
Hi Bernd,

I would always prefer LVM on a raid1 instead of mirrored LVM, because the performance is better (with same result). My gut says if you run ClearOS in a virtual machine and use FreeNAS + ZFS as host the directory server still works if you give access to the virtual machine.

Robert, Enzo replied to the topic Re: Cannot send email via Relay host in the forums.

I think you need to activate the encryption by adding in the main.cf:

smtp_tls_policy_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/tls_policy

and then create the file tls_policy and put in:

smtps.aruba.it:465 encrypt

then postmap tls_policy
and postfix reload

This might fix this.

Hi Mike,

I would consider myself as an enterprise user, although we only use the COS box for firewall and VPN roles. I've been with Clear (and Clark Connect prior) for a number of years, I don't think there is a better package on offer at the moment in terms of ease of use and integrated features. COS has built a good reputation on the web forums for such products, and I certainly don't see it going anywhere, other than from strength to strength.

I'm sure I speak for many when I say I wish SAMBA had stopped 'debating' which authentication method was best for the previous X years, and got on with creating a compatible active directory implementation that worked 'easily' with a Windows 2003 domain. Whilst I can in no way criticise the work of volunteer developers who generously give up their free time to create a product, It annoys me slightly that I think the 'open source' community of Linux distributions has not been able to capture the ground left by the 'millions' of customers from the end of the MS SBS platform, because the lack of a fully compatible domain controller.

That aside, I think the developers of COS are doing a fantastic job, and I would like to see (similar to the adoption of Libre Office by various governments around the world), the number of SBS users increase to such a point whereby the number of active developers (and money!) reach what I call 'critical mass', I guess where it goes from a hobby to a mainstream commercial option that the 'non-technical' small and micro businesses feel they can consider as a viable option.

Chris Johnson replied to the topic Re: Question about traditional development and packages in the forums.
Thanks, I've enabled clearos-core now and have it by default. Is there a recommended Fedora repo for the harder-to-find packages, e.g. mp3info that might have some chance of success? If not I'll just go for the source package and wade my way through the dependencies for building from source unless there's a better idea out here.

Chris Johnson replied to the topic Re:dyndns and my dns record provided by clearos in the forums.
Re-installing and indicating its a re-install helped, but attempts to use the original DNS name on poweredbyclear.com indicate the DNS record is still in use. Presumably this means I'm fine.

If that is correct, then this was a very dumb thread to have started, and I'd love to have the moderator simply purge it completely!

Mike Edwards replied to the topic Re: Future of ClearOS? in the forums.
Yeah, I have a full support package. Looking forward to Samba4 getting rolled in soon, Based on your response (and total number of posts), I take it you are quite comfortable with the distro and don't see it going away anytime soon?
