You should at least make an Network Object for your Zentyal server (better your client pc) so no one will have any IP duplicate.


Have you tried disabling Antivirus Scanning in Filesharing?

If you use standard Zentyal implementation, I assume you don't rely on "host::destination" syntax (that is very useful and flexible) because Zentyal won't allow it unless you hardcode some modification  ;)


The hardcode is what I need. hehe :)

Some advice:

While the USB drive is unmounted, make its mount-point immutable:
chattr +i /Mount/Point/Location

This will insure that, in the event that the usb is unmounted, nothing will be written to your root partition.

Here's an rysnc command example:
Code: [Select]
sudo rsync -v --chmod=ug=rwX  --human-readable --itemize-changes --links --log-file="rsync.log" --partial --progress --recursive --stats --times /Source/Path/With/Slash/At/The/End/ /Destination/Path/Without/Slash/At/The/End

Hello Lonniebiz,

Thank you for taking time to answer and for the short code. But I just wish to accomplish this over the GUI if ever that's possible.

Thanks again

Do you mean to say that RSYNC is available but that you can't RSYNC on "yourself" ?
I don't know the status with RSYNC on 3.x but running it on 2.2, I remember I had to introduce some customization in order to achieve RSYNC that I could use. You may find it in this forum as I documented it some time ago.

I never tried it but does it make sense to RSYNC with your internal (LAN) IP address ? (weird isn't it ?  :P)

Hello Christian,

Thanks for the reply.

For this purpose, I merely want to synchronize the contents of my /home directory to my USB Drive using rsync.

I mounted a USB Storage with NTFS partition and use it as backup storage.

Partition worked without any issues and can save files to it as /backup directory.

Is there a way I can use RSYNC as backup method instead of Filesystem? If yes how can I accomplish this?


Bump on this thread! I still can't still find a solution to this.

Anyone, please help.


Hi Everyone,

I installed the latest Zentyal 3.2.3 64bit. Everything went fine except that locally, I cannot open anything on the desktop. I can access the Remote Administration but cannot run locally.

After a successful login I got:


Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible.

I tried to remove and reinstall zebuntu desktop but this doesn't fix the problem as well. Everything is updated so I don't think something is broken or something.

Any clue?

I suppose you have to do this Manually. Just using my imagination though :D

1. First create an Object for each Subnet and start adding hosts
2. Add a new DHCP scope for those Subnets by defining the Objects on each Subnet


Thanks Cardinal, you are right. yes I have now read that part of the docs, and certainly should have done before posting. I see that a vpn client is easily doable through the Zentyal interface.

The bit I am still unsure of is how to hook this into the rest of the system to get the behavior I seek.

*<What I want is that certain hosts on the local network always route through the VNP when going outside, and others do not.>*

I am a bit out of my depth here, but I think it should work something like this:

Certain hosts on internal network --> eth1 --> NAT --> tun(VPN) --> ppp0 --> eth0 --> Internet
  Other hosts on internal network --> eth1 --> NAT                ------> ppp0 --> eth0 --> Internet

Once i have set up my VPN client, I am not sure which Zentyal modules I should use to get this routing to work. Can I simply add a couple of rules to the firewall, or if I will need to use a squid proxy, or go directly into fiddling with routing tables, or something like that.

My entire local network uses only static IPs, so the contingent routing can be based on IPs or MAC addresses, whichever is more efficient.

Undoubtedly there are ways to do this directly in Linux, but naturally, I'd prefer to do everything at the Zentyal level if possible, for ease of maintenance.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Just create two (2) network objects. 1. Certain host and 2. Other hosts. Then use bandwidth shaping, to route those traffic to the appropriate gateway.

I am using Zentyal 3.0 as a gateway/firewall and file server in a small home LAN.

I live in a country where some international websites are blocked, and so I normally run OpenVPN clients on one or two of my local hosts to tunnel to a commercial VPN server provider offshore. Instead, I would like to run my VPN client on the Zentyal box, and make the tunnel available to my entire LAN.

I have not yet installed the Zentyal VPN module, but a quick look at the documentation suggests it is aimed at setting up a server, rather than a client. My understanding is that Linux OpenVPN actually implements both server and client through a single package, but not so sure about the Zentyal module.

Can anyone offer a little guidance here? Can this be done through the Zentyal module? Or would I be better off just implementing an OpenVPN client directly in Ubuntu? I fear that doing it outside of Zentyal will still require me to make a bunch of messy adjustments to zentyal to make it play nice.

Any knowledgeable suggestions on the best way to attempt to do this?

Yes, this can be done. Just read the official Documentation for more info.

First, what version of Zentyal are you running? Second, you may use Zentyal Official Documentation to setup OpenVPN.

DHCP/DNS Modules not properly starting should not prevent Zentyal from running. I suppose you just have to wait for a while until Zentyal fully started. From there you can perform Sam Graf's suggestions you have to do in the console.



All requirements you mentioned so far are supported by Zentyal. And it should be be easy to setup as long as you know what you're doing ;)


Got same issue and I can confirm, the above resolution fixed the problem on starting DNS.
