Peter Baldwin replied to the topic Re: Development Tools installation failed on new install of ClearOS 6.5.0 i386 in the forums.
Hi Nick,

Here's the new exclude list:


exclude=amavisd-new-* cabextract catdoc clamav-* clamd cloud-init-* daq-* GoeIP-* hostapd-* imapsync-* jnettop libecap-* libical* libvmime* miniupnpd-* mod_auth* netatalk-* openvpn-* philesight php-mapi phpMyAdmin pkcs11-helper pmacct pptpd proftpd pwauth python-mapi ratpoison-* roundcubemail-* snort-* Swift-* tnef-* transmission-* zarafa*

The roundcubemail upgrade is probably a nasty one, but that's just a guess. Most of the others (GeoIP, openvpn, pptpd, imapsync) are bleeding edge, but are likely just fine. These EPEL RPMs are automatically pushed to the clearos-test repository. We then push them through the usual updates-testing -> updates workflow for some sanity checking and QA.

We're still waiting on upstream. I have a feeling Red Hat decided to skip their usual 6 month minor release schedule due to the release of RHEL 7. RHEL 6.5 was released in November 2013, so we were expecting RHEL 6.6 in May. That didn't happen.

The mail quarantine software is called MailZu, but it's no longer actively maintained. It should be possible to download, install and configure it in ClearOS 6.

Peter can you comment on this post?


The post looks accurate to me. There are now 3 IPsec apps in Marketplace:

- Static IPsec Basic (free)
- Static IPsec ($50)
- Dynamic VPN (free with Professional Basic and higher)

I really wish Managed VPN was still free in ClearOS 6...
Managed VPN was never free - it requires more backend resources than the Dynamic DNS service!

Ben Chambers replied to the topic Re:Problem with flash application in the forums.

It could be that the app is not proxy friendly, or it could be the content filter blocking. Be sure by excluding the website in question from both serices.


If you're running in non-transparent mode, this is easy...simply add the website to the Web Proxy ByPass table.

If you're running in transparent mode, you'll need to add a custom firewall rule (need to install custom firewall app).

iptables -t nat -I PREROUTING --destination x.x.x.x -j ACCEPT
iptables -I FORWARD --destination x.x.x.x -j ACCEPT

Where x.x.x.x is the website's IP...hostname will work too, but if your DNS ever fails, it will hang or potentially barf on your custom firewall rules.

Content FIlter:

Navigate to Content Filter configuration in Webconfig, click on "App Policies --> Edit". Select "Edit" next to "Exception Sites" and add the website name.

On the last line, try:

yum --enablerepo=clearos-dev install clearos-devel app-devel

Hi Chris,

Sounds like a job for your DNS provider, not ClearOS...Unless you're referring to the ability to put ClearOS in as your gateway, and route SMTP traffic back to your existing mailserver residing on the LAN segment of the ClearOS network...in that case, you have two options. First, simply create a port forward rule for SMTP back to the LAN IP of your mail server. That is done via "Network -- Port Forwarding". You need the port forwarding app installed, of course.

Alternatively, you can use ClearOS as a mail gateway filter/passthrough. In that case, you don't add the port forward rule..instead you open SMTP up on the Incoming Firewall (app installed by default). You also install the "SMTP" app from Marketplace in addition to any other sub-components (spam, malware, greylisting etc.). In your SMTP configuration, you'll set the mail forwarding entry to your existing mail server. Additional info on this configuration can be found here.

Ben Chambers replied to the topic Re:How to remove This configuration in the forums.
That entry is your default website...you basically have to have one...it represents "/var/www/html", whereas any other virtual sites you add end up in /var/www/virtual.

If you really want to get rid of it (no recommended), you'll need to edit /etc/clearos/flexshare.conf using an editor.

Look for the Flexshare definition containing:

Delete the entire Flexshare entry and save your file. Eg. you will see something like this:

<Share www.example.com>


Delete the entire section.

yum --enablerepo=clearos-test upgrade bash

Thanks don't go to me...Shad or Pete...not really sure yet!

It's likely an issue of memory...specifically, lack of it. Check your log files for 'memory' ...something like:

grep -i memory /var/log/*

If you find instances of the OOM killer coming around and shutting down IDS, you'll have found your issue.

Hi Rob,

Thanks for the detailed bug report! That issue has been fixed (tracker #1823) but it has not yet been pushed out to software updates.

There's still no movement on having Samba Directory in the Community Edition -- sorry.
