Zentyal – Server Administrator

Zentyal is Web Gui Server / firewall sush as pfsense , ClearOS and many more.

The different about Zentyal (knows as e-box) is we can manual istall along with ubuntu 10.04 server editions.

That what i did…Install it without GUI..

If somebody out there need install zentyal with gui you can download it here.

But if you wanna install without GUI / Desktop Version. Use this guide.

1. Install Ubuntu Server 10.04.

Zentyal 2.0 packages

2. Add to your /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb lucid main

In order to authenticate the packages in the PPA you can import its public key with the following command:

apt-key adv –keyserver –recv-keys 10E239FF

Update your package database

sudo apt-get update

After that, you just need to run:

sudo apt-get install zentyal

And then point your browser to the Zentyal IP address and follow the instructions on screen:


You will see Zentyal Dashboard after complete the wizard.

For me Zentyal is slow…

but good enough for manage the server / firewall.

” We can handle multiple server by hand, but we cannot handle it alone that’s why we have to install GUI interface for others people to take care of our server”
