Hi Marc,

ClearOS doesn't have any apps that can be used for creating content -- those apps are coming with Tiki, Wordpress, etc., but have not yet arrived. I'm ready to dogfood/bootstrap getting ElasticSearch running on ClearOS, but the aforementioned apps need to be delivered first

It's still PHP 5.4 in the RHEL7 Release Candidate too.

Nathan replied to the topic Re:Mail Server .. not sending or reciving anything in the forums.
As it turns out you can just call Comcast and ask them to turn port 25 back on. From what I read they do this from the cable modem. You have to call their internet security team or something like that instead of the normal tech support. The number I found was: 888-565-4329. They started a ticket and about 4 or 5 hours later everything was up and running!

Josh Harding created a new topic Mail Retrieval able to download from MS Exchange with IMAP running? in the forums.
Greetings Everyone
At my suggestion, the company I work for are considering implementing ClearOS for our fleet of boats. The current arrangement is each boat has several Windows 7 PC's joined to a local domain controller with role based usernames on each boat.

Each PC's email client, Outlook 2010, reaches into our head office (not on the local domain) to authenticate to the Exchange Server over a 3G connection to shore. The 3G provider has a backhaul into our office. This proves problematic as Windows has authentication issues using differing accounts (local domain user differing from the Head Office domain user - yes 2 user accounts exist). The boat domain controllers are NOT in a trust relationship with head office as they may go offline for very long periods at a time. As an alternative, the boats will use Webmail to check their mailboxes when on satellite comms.

I've suggested each boat should be using ClearOS over Windows 2008R2 server as they will be more autonomous, require far less ongoing maintenance, plus will receive regular report on each server which Windows Svr lacks. There are a plethora of other advantages ClearOS has over Windows in this environment also.

Q - Can ClearOS use Mail Retrieval to connect to the head office Exchange Server to download mail? A "Pull mail" is preferred over "Push from Exchange" so the same folder structure can be replicated on each boat's client PC.

Our usernames are in the format of "first initial then surname" (i.e. jharding) but email is "firstname.surname@domain.com". When attempting to prefix the username with domain (i.e. domain\jharding) in the mail retrieval is returning an error. If we try the full email address, the system isn't able to authenticate correctly as the username isn't presented correctly.

Will this require the Active Directory connector installed on the ClearOS to have any chance at authenticating correctly? I'm really hoping this can be resolved as there are potentially 52 boats that will have this installed. We will be up-spec'ing ClearOS to Professional however need to sort this for proof of concept.

Thanks in advance

I notice that the Snort website says that with the rewrite of the VRT License Agreement, means that community.rules is now available .. but even though it (apparently) appeared with Snort version, and the version in the ID module is later, that particular rule set is missing. Are there any plans to introduce this?

Tashiel created a new topic Web Proxy Authentication disable nto working in the forums.
Hi There

I am new to Clear OS, basically installed it clearos 6.4, registered for professional as it is a VPS, configured webproxy and content filter, however having serious issues with disabling web proxy authentication.

It is disabled in Gateway>Web Proxy>Settings>

Yet when i add the settings to my internet settings, the popup on the browser shows up and asks for authentication.

I have enabled it, added myself as a test user and authenticated and it works perfectly fine when authenticated, but i cannot have it authenticating, because i want to offload my traffic from my mikrotik to this proxy and then have it send the traffic back, which currently almost working, besides this one little thorn, the mikrotik cant authenticate to parent proxies...

i cannot change settings in transparent mode, because there is no transparent mode> standalone install.

Have rebooted it several times.

Please help.

Marc Laporte created a new topic Elasticsearch: Integrated search on files, email, web content, etc. in the forums.

Elasticsearch is a flexible and powerful free / libre / open source, distributed, real-time search and analytics engine. It is super fast, RESTful, based on Apache Lucene and has a very high activity level: www.ohloh.net/p/elasticsearch

It is part of "The Elasticsearch ELK Stack". The two other apps of the stack are:
* Logstash helps you take logs and other time based event data from any system and store it in a single place for additional transformation and processing.
* Kibana is Elasticsearch’s data visualization engine, allowing you to natively interact with all your data in Elasticsearch via custom dashboards.

See also: solr-vs-elasticsearch.com/

Does anyone have experience / interest with it? I would like to explore running Elasticsearch on ClearOS, and handling the security aspects:
* github.com/elasticsearch/elasticsearch/issues/664
* github.com/sonian/elasticsearch-jetty

Elasticsearch is part of Tiki suite:
* www.clearfoundation.com/Community/Groups/141/Viewgroup.html
* suite.tiki.org/Tiki+Suite

These are the types of use cases we are looking to cover:

I would like to extend this to data outside Tiki, notably the files in the ClearOS-Samba Flexshares and emails in Zarafa.

Best regards,
