Other modules / IDS/IPS doesnt work
« on: March 25, 2022, 02:42:17 pm »
Hi Zentyal user, after a couple of installation's under virtualbox, the IDS/IPS module is installed, and once activated it crashes nginx every time. I tested with default ids/ips settings, same thing.

Any ideas where it could come from?

Hi Zentyal user's,

after research to secure my Zentyal configuration, i see that the repo have an https certificate expired since 2018... :-\

And that of the forum expires at the end of May 2022 . :P

Other modules / How to secure DNS with DNSSEC

Directory and Authentication / Re: Secure zentyal ports
« on: March 16, 2022, 04:58:35 pm »

That's fairly simple to achieve:

Just make sure you use the right section, so you block access to the Zentyal and not between networks.

If you need more ports (not mentioned on the current list) go to Network -> Services and add what you need (Name, protocol, ports)
Then you can use that service in firewall selection list.


Thanks for the explanation, i will test it :)

Directory and Authentication / [SOLVED]Secure zentyal ports
« on: March 14, 2022, 03:38:52 pm »
Hi Zentyal user's,

after reading the Zentyal documentation, having browsed the forum, I allow myself to come and ask my questions in this section.

Having carried out an installation without problems, today I want to secure this installation, and this by securing ports 22, 80 and 389.

By consulting the forum I found how to secure port 389 without disabling it, which is not recommended, do you have any suggestions for the other ports?

I'm not looking for a ready-made solution, just advice, a choice will be made if feasible or not :)

Wishing you many thanks in advance for your future contributions :)
