    So, do I conclude that not a single person is using ZeroShell with a 10Gb interface?

    How about tried to? Is there anyone that tried and failed? What NIC did you try? Did it fail to work completely? Was there no driver for it? Was it a performance problem?

    Come on, someone has either succeeded or failed to do 10G. What’s the story?

    Why don’t you try virtualizing ZS with ESXi? ESXi works on many hardware platforms, I’m sure you could find 10Gb interfaces to work with ESXi and then just run ZS (and anything else) as a VM. You might not be able to use integrated WiFi as ESXi historically doesn’t provide support for such, although I haven’t checked the latest 6.5 release. Maybe PCIe pass-through might work but it’s probably just easier to use and external WiFi AP.
    I run virtualized ZS and it’s great.

    Hi,
    I have both, an ALIX and an APU. Alix is at the end of life, and it will struggle with torrents and and big load. Also speed is 100M that may be ok on most connections. I am not sure about newer then 2.4G cards. Also is hard to find adaptors to write the SD card for ALIX.

    ZS doesn’t come with all drivers for these little devices so you may need some additional work.

    I compiled all drivers, (or almost) for APU2 ( I have an apu2c4) I also did some mods as a hobby. ( added 8 LEDs )

    I used a 16g msata ssd + one vle200 ( 2.4G N ) and one vle600 ( 5G AC )

    Unless u want to play around and you get an alix for cheap I would recommend APU2.
    APU1 may be ok, I just don’t have experience with it.

    Thanks iulyb,

    I’ve decided to go with the APU2c2. In my experience I’ve never seem ZS memory usage over 1GB, have you ever seen more usage than 2GB on your APU2c4?

    So are just LED and GPIO drivers missing in ZS3.7.1?

    Does the wle200 work without mods?

    Do you find the APU2 stable?

    Also, I’ve just used USB to boot ZS in a small PC. Considering ZS runs in memory do you see any performance (or other benefit) installing ZS to mSATA in the APU instead of USB?

    Cheers.

    Fulvio says there is an ARM release of ZS coming up this month (january 2017), specifically targeted for Raspberry pi.

    Is this correct Fulvio? Is there an ARM port on the way? 😀

    Any particular hardware platforms targeted? e.g Pi

    Keep in mind that many of these new x86 SOC boards are often designed for Windows 8/10 and use a UEFI without a Legacy BIOS option such as the Latte Panda. Trial an error may be your best approach as it’s often difficult to get a response from these cheap manufacturers about such things.

    After trying the new re-update of 23321 it seems that the BugFix is now operating correctly. Thanks for fixing that up Fulvio.

    I have noticed some of my other ZS instances received the Bug Fix 23321 Autoupdate only yesterday. Anyone know if this is the same problematic update or is this one supposed to be fixed?…..

    Fulvio….?

    I haven’t been able to get Gmail SMTP working in the Monitoring settings. Try using an SMTP email server on your LAN, maybe your router has an SMTP relay you could use or you could try using the SMTP settings of your ISP.

    Once operational the Monitoring Module is very convenient. Don’t forget to add your email recipients.

    Thanks Lightyear. Hopefully Fulvio will sort out the 23321 update soon.

    Do you know anyway to turn off Automatic updates via cmd? I think this is necessary for critical instances of ZS.

    Cheers.

    Edit: After applying the 23321 I do remember seeing during reboot “23321 modified scripts Success”. Maybe re-applying the 23320 will modify the same scripts again back to what they were…..maybe not.

    Just in case will definitely snapshot ZS VM before modifying this time!

    Turns out there’s a problem with the 23321 update. Fulvio is working on a solution now. You will find Netbalancer will have issues until Fulvio provides a fix. It helped to reduce problems by removing QOS from some of the gateways listed in Netbalancer. Lets hope we get a fix soon.

    I think this would be a matter of adding a rule to the Prerouting table but I don’t think ZS provides the ability in the GUI. You could do it in shell mode.

    Maybe PFsense was ending the request out to the WAN instead of routing at over the LAN and so your port forwarding on the WAN was directing you to the correct server.

    You could try creating a rule in Netbalancer to send all traffic destined for your Public IP from your LAN out your Gateway. This might have the traffic return to the WAN side and be forwarded correctly.

    I have been able to get the email notification working by using a different smtp server to Google. I noticed that emails were not being relayed by the working smtp server unless I used a valid domain name for the From email address. I guess this is a configuration related to the smtp server itself and not ZS.

    Anyone else able to get Google smtp working? Also does ZS use Postfix or Sendmail to process the emails?

    Yes you can do this.

    First you will need to enable Netbalancer and add both your PPP connections as gateways. Then go to netbalancer rules and add a rule for clients behind each LAN e.g Set the input interface to ETH02 and then at the bottom select one of your PPP gateways to direct the traffic to, save and done!

    You should be able to browse to your virtual server using its LAN IP from the within the LAN. From outside the LAN you should be able to browse to your virtual server using your WAN IP provided you have setup the virtual server settings in ZS.

    If you need to create a rule to direct traffic from withing the LAN you can do so in the Firewall section of the ZS GUI but this should already be working.

    Also try using port :8080 with the IP number of your virtual server.

    Solved:

    I had the Static Route configured on the VPN interface not on the IP number. Changed that and everything routes correctly now!!

    OK so now I understand. Disregard my post above (what a mess). I was confused about how to set the internet gateway and was thinking I had to do this manually (trying all sorts of crazy things) but then realized that NetBalancer does this by applying individual rules. I was way off!

    From what I now understand about Linux IPtables or netfilter is that by creating individual rules in NetBalancer it must be creating PREROUTING and POSTROUTING rules in the NAT table forcing all traffic from one interface (LAN NIC) down another (VPN interface).

    Correct me if I’m wrong here…..
