    Hi Nick,

    A new feature request.
    Is it possible to add a button in de fail2bin app to unban a blocked IP. (see attachment)
    Now you need to do this in the console

    fail2ban-client set {jail-name} unbanip {IP_to_unblock}

    This can be much easier.;-)

    @Patrick, the flexshare issue is a hangup from Clearos6.x and must have been overlooked. Try changing line 86 in /usr/clearos/apps/flexshare/views/summary.php to:

    I'll ask Dave if he is happy with the possible change.

    As far as I can see, the issue is with the CSS on the line in question. If you remove it and just leave the bit at the beginning, the Webconfig displays a 1 or 0.

    Hi,

    I think there is a small bug in the app-flexshare.
    At the main screen of flexshare the colomn "Enable" remains empty. (see attachment)

    @Richard George,
    I've done a quick update to app-bmbackup and it is sync'ing the testing repo. It should be in all repos within 2 hours. You can install it with:
    yum update app-bmbackup --enablerepo=clearos-contribs-testing
    I am not an app-bmbackup user normally, but I'll see if I can test it as well.

    If it fails, you can revert with a:
    yum downgrade app-bmbackup app-bmbackup-core


    The update is to switch to using /usr/clearos/apps/configuration_backup/deploy/backup.conf instead of /etc/clearos/bmbackup.d/backup.conf as its source of files to be backed up.

    Nick; a little more on the Baremetal Backup ..

    I've been comparing the configuration file with the equivalent one in configuration_backup - it's clear that as the format is exactly the same, that the BMB version started life as the 'built-in' backup version - but it now lags behind .. as obviously things have moved on.

    Can I suggest that as a quick fix, the BMB version is updated to match the configuration_backup version, and moving forward, that perhaps BMB is undated to use the 'parent' instead? That way both versions of the backup mechanisms are 'singing from the same hymn sheet'.
    I think that is a good idea. I've had a little look at the programs. App-configuration-backup is installed by default and we could make app-bmbackup depend on it, then switch app-bmbackup to read the file from app-configuration-backup. I may even have enough c&p skills to do that (I am not a php programmer).

    FWIW the list in app-configuration-backup is also well out of date, not keeping up with new programs. It has not even kept up with the new layout of the web-proxy configuration files. There is an issue on GitLab raised to cover this.

    [edit]
    I've done one backup with the updated app and it appears to have worked in that the original /etc/clearos/bmbackup.d/backup.conf file is no longer there and it still backed up and has more configs backed up.

    I've also updated a the list of files being backed up in app-configuration-backup. You can install the updated app with:
    yum update app-configuration-backup --enablerepo=clearos-updates-testing
    If you want any more items backed up, please post to the Gitlab Issue #5. I am currently working on the principle that backed up files should not really include your manual tweaks so I've had to leave a few of my personal favourites out. I would need to discuss it with the devs if people want other files with manual tweaks backing up.

    Hi Nick,

    I am not really familiar, just saw some tutorials mentioning it:
    https://www.itsfullofstars.de/2018/09/openvpn-assign-static-ip-to-client/

    In my case, as you mentioned, the IP is pretty much static, but for one time, after reconnecting one client somehow changed to use another IP and screwed up the network drive connection on another system. So I just wonder if this can become a handy option on GUI.
    Be a little careful of this but it does work. ClearOS uses the default topology of "net30". Please see this reference. It means that IP addresses are used in blocks of four. If you look in /var/lib/openvpn/ipp.txt, you see the base address for each user. The remote device will get the remote address of base address +2 and the server address will be base address +1. This means your line in the file in the ccd folder should read:
    ifconfig-push {remote_address} {server_address}

    Could we add an easy way to change the MAC address of the WAN interface?
    This is a commonly available option on off-the-shelf routers, and it is a convenient way to acquire a different IP address from the ISP in case it is needed, e.g. to renew the IP of the VPN when it gets block by a certain service.

    Lately after using OpenVPN more, I think one feature can be very helpful if on GUI, that is,
    make it available to assign a fixed IP for a specific client from the server side.

    While this can be done by editing the server config, it will be great if we can do it using GUI.

    Hi,

    A small issue which makes the overview a bit more clear.

    Within the Kopano-basic app there is an option for backup the malboxes. Here in you can choose the destination "Backup Destination Folder" and choose a flexshare location.
    Perfect solution, but the backup of mailboxes are dropped in the root of the flexshare. Is it possible to group the mailboxes is a subdirectorie which is created by the app, for example a subdir "Kopano" or "Backup" and then store the mailboxes in this subdir

    Fixed; problem was the earlier discussion re: Let's Encrypt behind a proxy (which TBW, can be fixed by using certbox with the DNS plugin rather than standalone) and the porting across of certificate. I'd deleted the certificates, forgetting that I'd configured webconfig to use them - and as they were no longer present, startup failed as the certificates were 'empty'. Somewhere in there, there must have been a restart in the background that killed apache.

    Something like 4 times so far - last was after removing all the language packs (the server has the development environment in addition to being a straight file server).

    I now know that -for some reason, the sandboxed apache has stopped running(!) - no idea why. I've two other C7 servers (one is a VM) that are working ok. Why this one has stopped is odd ATM, as it was running a couple of weeks ago (the last time I had cause to visit the config to check something). ATM, it won't start.

    Did you restart your system to see if it resolves the issue?

    I don't think it's a bug in ClearOS but something is wrong with your particular install. There are no other reports.

    Ok, I now have a serious bug that needs fixing (only found it today). I'm unable to connect to Webconfig on port 81, and the graphics console is reporting "one or more installed addons cannot be verified and have been disabled". The Normal webserver appears to be ok, it's the sandboxed version that appears to have a problem. The only thing I've done that's changed anything is to install Let's Encrypt and tell Webconfig to use the certificate. SSH access is unaffected. A google hunt tells me that it's possibly a Firefox bug - it seems to be a common theme from the beginning of this month.

    Nick it looks like some of what I am after is available. I did not know what ClearGLASS was because it's name is not descriptive. ClearVirtual might have been better. It might be what I need or overkill.

    The RAID monitor from the Market Place is just for MDADM not hardware. It used to monitor 3Ware cards in ClearOS 5 but nolonger. I reckon ClearOS 5 was the best one, I only switched because it's dated.

    Getting the new 10gig network card to work is important. I am hoping when my test server picks up the latest kernal it will start working.

    For that you need something which supports sieve rules such as Roundcubemail if you use cyrus-imap. I would expect Kopano to support it as well but I have not checked.

    2. Hardware RAID monitoring and email notification (ClearOS 5 had this).
    I've never tried it but what does app-raid bring you? It certainly has an e-mail setting. Also, coming soon, I hope, is app-storage, a storage manager. This is not finished and bits keep getting added and changed but I think it is reasonably stable. I think Patrick de Brabander is having a look at it. You can test it with:
    yum install app-storage --enablerepo-clearos-updates-testing
    It is also worth updating it every couple of working days or even daily in case there are changes.

    3. 10gig network card support.
    We get whatever the upstream kernel provides. Referring to your other thread, later kernels give greater support for new cards but can deprecate old ones. I can also make available anything from ElRepo, but these are generally deprecated drivers rather than the latest and greatest.

    4. Web management of Virtual Servers.
    Have you had a look at ClearGLASS? It has a couple of issues but can do all sorts of things. There is even a demo server you can try out at https://my.clear.glass:9443/. It is fully functional but best if your target servers are internet facing.

    I know it's a bit cludgy but it looks neater to the client if their fancy new server can eliminate the need for these old bits of hardware cluttering up the office.

    Oh yes a vote for Docker but only if it's really simple from the front end like Marketplace.
