    Let me say first… Great tutorial!

    Now second, my question. Now that version 4.1 is the latest stable release, i can’t seem to find the package “zentyal-ftp” using apt-get?
    In all ways the package list is a bit shorter than first, but didn’s come to any problems besides ftp and mysql.

    Any idea how to install ftp in a proper way, i mean zo i have it shown up in the console to. If you know a way for mysql or phpmyadmin i would be very pleased to hear your opinion about how to use that in version 4.1 ( maby a bit offtopic, but still… )

    Thanks in advance!

      Zentyal 4.1 has removed FTP server from their custom zentyal configuration! But you can still install, configure and use a variant of ftp server as standalone without shipping with zentya-ftp server, although you must manually configure the server only from command line, not by using zentyal web interface. Same this is valid for MySQL and phpmyadmin! Install, configure and manage them only from CLI!

    Add a system user with his home path as the folder that you want to commonly share it: useradd your_ftp_user
    usermod -m -d /path/to/common/folder/ your_ftp_user

    Very nice instruction set.

    I am searching on how to give access to a common folder via ftp from all users, such as the ‘www’ server folder, or ‘public dropbox’ etc.

    Any thoughts?

    hello brother..

    i am looking for a software which can control through centralize admin console.

    for instance, if my laptop is connected through wire and if tried to connect wireless at same time then system simply does not allow it until i unplugged my wire.

    any 3rd party server based software can be helpful.

    any idea?

    Hi ,

    I have install mail server on Zentyal and wanted to use the open manage option for Ms-outlook.
    I have configure it on the server but it required one external interface on the server.
    To access the interface on public network I have NATed through the firewall.

    When I configured the interface as internal its get accessible on public IPI but when I configured the interface as external its become the not accessible on public IP.

    Please suggest how to configured this ?
