    Hi all

    Does anyone know of a *package* or *application* that can be installed on to a Linux based system to provide functionality similar to that provided by the above software, because AIUI the above are complete distros.

    Just looking for basically a nice web interface that can be configured to point to some disks, and share out files etc

    I quite like eBox, http://www.ebox-platform.com/ web based, looks good and has lots of features. Depending on what you need though, webmin may be more suitable :)

    tried ebox years ago when it was in developement and couln't ever get it all instaleld properly. May give it another shot now it's matured a bit.

    Never really like webmin all that much tbh, always found it started mucking up configs. I don't mind editing smb.conf or nfs hosts whatever, but was wondering it there was anything that made more into an 'appliance' type thing. Like what torrent flux does for torrents etc i.e. the screenshots of freenas look very appealing, but couldn't see why it has to be a whole distro - just the packages and a web front end would be cool

    You might want ot have a look at Proxmox VE and then installing the Turnkey - File Server Virtual Appliance under it.

    There are quite a few other virtual appliances also available either via Proxmox or Turnkey for other functions as well that you might want to look at per packaged.
