    Re: ClearOS 7.8 smtp - deliver incoming messages to remote LMTP cyrus server via host:lmtp

    There should be a much simpler way. Use the Mail Forwarding part of the SMTP Server configuration. The main thing to look out for is the Mail Forwarding Domain should not be the same as the Mail Domain (tip: if you have just the one domain, make the Mail Domain a subdomain of your of your Mail Forwarding Domain). Then all you need is a basic SMTP server on your cyrus.example.tld server.

    I think I have cracked a manual hack.

    Firstly, get your VPN username and password from the StrongVPN site > VPN Accounts > VPN Account Summary > Account Setup Instructions. These should be put into /etc/clearos/ibvpn.d/passwd.

    On the same page, note the Get Configuration button. Choose your endpoint country and city and go for a UDP/1194 configuration and download the OpenVPN (you could go for the generic config but then there is more playing around to be done as you ahve more files). Save this config as /etc/clearos/ibvpn.d/ibvpn.ovpn

    Then adjust the config to:Note the lines I have commented out and the ones I have added. The remote lines should change depending on which endpoint you go for. I think all the rest stays the same.

    The restart ibVPN

    I can get a connection going but have failed to crack the routing so far. :(

  • There are so many different options so:
    How have you set the flexshare up in Nextcloud?
    When you are remote, how do the users access the files in Nextcloud.

    In NC, if I connect to a flexshare by SMB, I can write to it as normal from the LAN as a mapped network share (or by browsing the shares on the server in Windows Explorer). In NC in my browser I can edit it (I used a test file) and it saves as you go along. I can still then open the file from my LAN as a mapped network share.

    I suspect you are a accessing the files via NC in a different way.

    Sorry, I don't. Just search "centos 7 freepbx rpm" and so on. There is stuff around but I don't know how recent.

    Years ago WIkiSuite were developing a freeswitch app, but it only got as far as contribs-testing. At that point I don't think it worked and they didn't have the resources to take it any further. There have been some threads on VoIP, but not for a long time. As usual I'd expect most Centos7 packaged apps to work.

  • Packages being updated to the Community tonight (24/11/2020)

    Tonight (24/11/20-25/11/20) the following updated packages are being released:


    • none - there will be no more updates until ClearOS 7.9 is released. Current target is second week in December.

    * by the package name = the package is also being released to Business at the same time.

    Packages available for testing

    • ClearOS 7.9. Please see this thread for details.
    • app-dhcp - update the MAC database. We try to do this for every point release of ClearOS.
    • app-network-map - update the MAC database and ethercodes.dat file.
    • app-network - Peter now has a build to test. It can be downloaded from Gitlab and installed manually. It should fix the upstream VLAN issue and a few other things. I would really appreciate some testing, even it is to say "no regressions found".

      • Now allows you to set up Wireless and Cellular interfaces. You will also need app-wireless or better, app-wireless-ap to configure a NIC as an access point. Otherwise manual configuration is then needed for WiFi and Cellular devices.
      • Kernel mode PPPoE (much faster and lower resources) becomes an option when configuring PPPoE.
      • Hides irrelevant interfaces from app-network-report such as docker0, veth* and ifb*.
      • Numerous other changes since last 2.6.0


    • app-wireless-ap - Community contribution to enable you to configure Wireless NIC's on your LAN. Includes 802.11ac support. You will also want the beta version of app-network to be able to see your WiFi NIC's in the IP Settings screen. There are bugs here!
    • app-dnsthingy - This is the same update as app-gateway-management but also includes a rebranding from DNSThingy to AdamOne. Update with:
    • app-gateway-management - update with:
    • adamone - this is the underlying package for the above beta versions of app-gateway-management/app-dnsthingy. If you have either of the above beta's installed, you can update with:Please restart GM afterwards.

    Unless detailed otherwise, packages available for testing can be installed with:

    Packages being worked on:

    • Unfortunately, mostly testing for the phone release.
    • possibly snort update to 2.9.16 (last of the 2.9 series)
    • basics for app-sia v2. This will slow down app release. This is on pause for the moment waiting for upstream.
    • app-attack-detector to add a button beside each banned IP to you can unban it. This was being worked on by an external contributor. I'll see if I can pick it up.


    Previous updates notice

  • I am sorry you feel like that. Unfortunately the original instructions worked for me so I was happy enough with them. There must be something different between out Community setups. I did check to see if I had skip_if_unavailable=1 set in yum.conf and I don't. That is only in my production box. I don't know why yours didn't skip over the error. I have just tried on a much more recent Community install and it also continued past the error. I do, however admit it would have been better to start with the fuller command.

    Any help you can give would be appreciated.

  • Hi Tony, thanks for trying. It is not a repo problem and my Community system I am just testing on survives it. It is more of an instruction problem. As we are testing the clearos-centos and clearos-centos-updates have not been updated to 7.9.2009. I am updating the instructions to skip those repos.
