accidentally deleted the ebox admin entry
« on: November 09, 2011, 06:35:20 am »
I accidentally deleted the ebox admin entry in the filters setup.
I think it was in the internal to zentyal filters.

So since I removed that I cannot remotely log in by https to the administaration.

Anyone know what the filter entry is to get the acces back ?
Thanks

Hello,

Use the folowing commands in terminal mode on your server:

sudo adduser username
sodo adduser username admin

Where username is the name of the user you will add

The commands create a new linux user and put the user in the administrator group of the linux users.

The new created user is able to logon on the Zentyal Ebox gui.

Best regards,
Ian

That is not the problem.
I can access the ebox control panel on the local machine zentyal resides on.

what I cannot do is to access it from another machine on the network anymore.
This is due to the fact that I removed the ebox admin ipchains rule in the firewall setup.

All I need is the details of the ebox admin entry in the firewall filters section.

It is easy to find. If you go through all the filtering sections one will have ebox admin as an entry.
Click on the edit button and all the details will be there.
Like, source destination ebox admin as service and so forth .
Also in which filter section it was found.
It is easy it is in everybody's firewall setup if you use zentyal.

I can reinstall zentyal from scratch and then it will be there, but I try to avoid it.

Add New --> service "ebox administration"  source any  ACCEPT  on the internal network to zentyal  section.
