"The good news is that the eBox platform is completely open-source, licensed under the GPL and free to download, with an active community developing it and driving the project forward. The open-source software it controls includes:"

"OpenLDAP and Samba for user management (eBox also includes a primary domain controller to allow Windows machines to authenticate). Samba and CUPS for file and printer sharing and backup on a Window network. Postfix, SpamAssassin, ClamAV and Jabber to run an e-mail server with anti-spam and anti-virus software and a corporate Jabber-based instant messaging system. Squid, Dansguardian, Netfilter/Iptables and Iproute2 to run a firewall, with packet filtering, traffic shaping, and web content filtering. ISC DHCP, NTP. BIND, Apache, OpenSSL and OpenVPN to run network services like DHCP, DNS and NTP, a web server, and a VPN to connect roaming users to the network or to connect two office networks together."
