eBox is not just a network tool. It is a complete development framework to extend its features to control any service you need. eBox platform is distributed under a dual licensing model: GPL version 2 and a comercial license for those companies interested in.
Features in version 0.7:
- Network interface management
- Network objects
- NTP server
- DNS cache
- DHCP server
- Web proxy
- Content filter
- Mail server
- Automatic upgrade system
- File sharing
- Printer sharing
- Instant messages service
- … and more!
Note that eBox is an advanced network services provider, so it’s intended to be installed on a dedicated machine. eBox overwrites configuration for some network services, so it’s not recommended to have them previously configured (or their configuration could be lost).
Anyway, you can install it on a debian system, using eBox apt repository:
deb http://ebox-platform.com/debian/stable/ ebox/
deb http://ebox-platform.com/debian/stable/ extra/
Or you can test it without risk using our eBox Platform Live CD!
You can help in its development or modify eBox for your needs just checking out eBox source code with:
svn co https://svn.warp.es/ebox-platform/trunk/
Please, submit your bugs to our trac system.
and finally, enjoy your eBox experience!
