    Thanks for mentioning Nethsecurity! I just totally missed that.
    I've put everyone on Zentyal or Sharepoint. But I am not 100% convinced Zentyal is the way to go.
    For some reason they don't like Beta testers, and things are stuck in 2010. No IP v6 support. And some weird bugs. If it runs, it runs, but I am not sure if they will last. But on the other hand, I would have had bought CLEAR foundation shares in 2018 if I had money laying around. So what do I know.



    I'm running Nethsecurity now for a few weeks and i must say that it is stable and the development and support are good.
    This package is the most important for me because the other packages like email of nextcloud are easy with other distros to combine.

    I canceled my subscriptions over a year ago. If you pay for support and find out the support team has not been there for a while. How can I explain that to my end customers.
    It's a shame Nethserver 8 isn't a drop in replacement like 7 was.
    If ClearOS would get a reboot, I would test it right away. It had so many unique pros.
    I can't believe it has gone the way of the Dodo because of lack of interest. Let's focus on the side projects. And forget the core.

    My subscription expired this month and I am not going to renew it.
    I am not going to pay if there is no support or service, but neither am I going to pay someone to mismanage and leave their business untouched.

    At least on the forum, there is activity and support.
    I am willing to pay for this or at least give my support.

    Should there be future ClearOS even then I will no longer support this because the person who will make money from this is not worth it.
    Besides, there is nothing in development yet so it will take at least a year before there is anything

    I have been an active user for over 18 years and find it very unfortunate that it is being handled this way.

    ClearOS Server is still under active development!

    Currently, the ClearOS Server Portal is being updated from the ground up. Peter, Ben, and others are working on this.

    ClearOS Server development will leapfrog directly from Clear Server OS 7.x to ClearOS Server 9.x and skip the 8.x major release(s) completely, with the IBM acquisition of Redhat and surrounding noise, this was the best path forward.

    ClearOS Mobile 10.x is under current active development and fully supported.

    Please watch for continued updates.

    Special thanks to those who add value for providing community support and seeing the value of the paid support and surrounding team(s).


    I've recieved an email to renew my subscription and after 21 years activally involved with Clarkconnect and ClearOS i came to the conclusion to not renew and pay for my subscription or services any more. I've lost my faith in the management of COS and will move slowely to another distro.
    I'll keep wathing on the forum and will try to help other users.

    Thank you Micheal and all the best with the development of Clear

  • If you read through the threads of this forum, you will see that it's a bad idea to use COS as a server, since it's outdated and unsupported. It used to be a great package, but alas, it is no more.

    It looks like Gateway Management updates are now available. Please see this thread.

    Nick is a good guy and knows a lot of COS.
    Nice that he providing this service. Don't expect anything from Clear so for the fee he is giving a good service
    More value for money then Clear is giving us for our subsciptions

  • Still crickets! It is like no one in management cares.

    I am running 1.27.1.5916, what was installed with COS7. I'm not finding any but the current version on Plex's download page. Very sad to hear there will be no more upgrades to COS. Any suggestions on something similar? Thanks

    Dependin on your system setup.
    If you are running a VM you can easily add a Debian install with Plex (my setup).
    Otherwise is Nethserver 8 an alternative. The only downside is that NS8 is just released and having all the packages (yet)
    If you install NS8 on a Debian platform i think you can install Plex very easy

    Bottom line. COS is unfortunately history

    Patrick de Brabander replied to a discussion, Plex Problem

    Which version of Plex are you using.?
    Current version of Plex are not working properly any more with Centos7, becuase it too old
    Version 1.31.2.6810 is the latest which will work with COS7

    Further more COS7 will be EOL soon, so moving to an other distro is to be advised
    Don't expect any update or new version of COS

  • The only updates are antimalware and antispam signatures.
    Further more there no support or updates since a year or so.
    Also will COS 7 EOL in june since it is based Centos 7

    If you read some posts on the forum you will see the discussion on support and updates
    Paying your subscription will have no added value at this moment to my opinion
