  1. hello! I have one question regarding nethserver. Can it work to feetch all my emails from my service provider, and I then would connect my pc and mobile phone to the nethserver? that way o would get rid of the storage limit of my service provider. many thanks.

  2. I'm having a problem I hope you can point me in the correct direction; host Windows 10, Vmware Workstation 12 player (free), NethServer 7.3.1611-x86_64. Everything is great up through creating the shared folder. However when back in windows and using the File Explorer for the share (I can find it & get the log in screen). I'm unable to log in, either the name or password isn't accepted. Except the name is testuser and the password is on a macro. I've cleared and rest the user in NethServer a couple of times, entered the pw by hand, but I'm unable to gain access to the shared folder from Windows 10.

    Great video BTW, it was a pleasure to follow along as I've never used NethServer before.

  3. Hi, everythings fine, BUT, executing the same example as your video you are entering into shared folder autenticating as domain user without entering into domain, in my case i need to put domain users into lab.local, but the IP address not exist when i exec ifconfig -a, i just only see 192.168.1.198, so i can't join the windows pc into domain of nethserver. what i'm missing ?, can you complete the video putting the part where users need to be join into domain and after that access into testshare? thanks
