Has anyone worked on having a FreeBSD-like jail for NetBSD?
I know there has been discussion in the past, but I am wondering if
anything recent has been done.
I have a customer running an old Red Hat server with a commercial Ensim
virtual hosting solution that has been cracked multiple times (after new
So I am looking for free and open source alternatives to provide a
web-based management interface.
The current product includes:
- web-based interface for the server manager to add new virtual domains
- web-based interface for the virtual domains manager to control their
own site: add users/email accounts, enable webpage, DNS, email aliases,
website log analysis, enable IMAP and POP3.
- DNS server
- HTTP and HTTP server
- SMTP server
- SSH access for virtual hosts (I think it might be jailed)
- FTP server
- It is also running mysql and postgresql. I don't know yet if either are
needed by the customers though, but maybe.
- some type of "bandwidth monitoring daemon to listen for usage reports
from various applications"
- uses IP aliases for each virtual host
I am looking for something for my customer (and his customers) to use with
a web-based interface. It may be useful to keep each virtual host in their
own jailed/chrooted environment. Although I don't want to replicate all
software to each users "home".
Any suggestions of a good virtual hosting web-based management system?
