    I've manage to install Debian following the whole perfect Debian 3.1 manual. After initiating eBox installation, in the "Running A File-, Print-, Proxy-, DHCP-, AND Time-Server For Small/Medium Enterprises" it says "You will be asked a few questions. Most of the time you can simply accept the default values:", now the following questions never apeared on the screen:

    Where should the PostgreSQL database be created? <-- /var/lib/postgres/data
    Should the data be purged as well as the package files? <-- No
    What locale should be used by the database backend? <-- en_US
    Choose European or US day/month order in dates. <-- European / US [depends on where you come from]
    DNS domain name: <-- example.com
    Name of your organization: <-- example.com
    Admin password: <-- somepassword
    Confirm password: <-- somepassword
    Allow LDAPv2 protocol? <-- No
    Enable suExec? <-- No
    Which paper size should be the system default? <-- a4
    Use password encryption? <-- Yes
    Modify smb.conf to use WINS settings from DHCP? <-- No
    How do you want to run Samba? <-- daemons
    Create samba password database, /var/lib/samba/passdb.tdb? <-- No
    database requires login <-- No
    make configuration readable/writeable by owner only <-- No
    nsswitch.conf is not managed automatically <-- Ok
    Send daily reminders to users over quota <-- No
    and this was the very last line I saw

    Setting up ebox-firewall (0.7.1) ...
    then SSH was dropped. Now, I can not access the server neither via SSH nor via web, when I try the web access I got the following error: " has sent an incorrect or unexpected message. Error Code: -12263"

    Was following the whole perfect Debian 3.1 manual mistake? Should I just follow first 2 pages as sugested in the "Running A File-, Print-, Proxy-, DHCP-, AND Time-Server For Small/Medium Enterprises"? Is it possible to run ISPConfig and File, Print, Proxy, DHCP and Time Server on the same machine?

    Please help :)

    That'S the normal behaviour. The eBox firewall blocks port 22. You can open that port using eBox' web interface.

    That's strange. Do you have physical access to the machine? Then you can log in using the normal terminal and try to fix the system.

    I haven't tested it, but it should work, I think.
