USB installs only from internet

On every release after Core 109, the USB drive installs *only* from the internet. To create the USB, I use rufus and the ISO image style of copying to the USB drive. I am able to install from the internet but I can not find a way to install a "CD style" installation option. This is a problem with ve...

Re: Core 112 Testing

Has anyone else been testing the Core 112 update?

I've seen unbound lock up a couple of times, but am fairly certain it is something to do with our testing environment. Just curious if anyone else has experienced anything like this.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Core 112 Testing

The installation of the Core 112 went as expected - no surprises. After a reboot, the firewall seems more responsive. Squid, in particular, works much better and is less demanding of the CPU. It also seems to have cleared up some of the outstanding squid bugs. Thanks to all who worked so hard on thi...

Re: Core 112 Testing

Arne.F, my search of the forums did not find this post for some reason. Maybe I didn't figure out how to use the new search in phpBB correctly.

Core 112 Testing

I see from Michael's release note that iftop has been removed. Say it isn't so! I looked for a notice that iftop is no longer being maintained, but could not find one. That said, other releases have quietly dropped it as well. Iftop has been my "go-to" utility for "what is slowing down the internet"...

Re: OpenVPN '--ns-cert-type' is deprecated

[quote="ummeegge"]Have pushed now a first idea to Git which includes: - Extended key usage based on RFC3280 TLS rules for OpenVPNs OpenSSL configuration, so '--remote-cert-tls server' can be used instead of the old and deprecated '--ns-cert-type server' if the host certificate (Root certificate by t...

Re: OpenVPN '--ns-cert-type' is deprecated

Thanks so much for doing the investigation on this! Time (and software) marches on and being prepared is far better than being surprised.

Feature request - add the Linux at command

The Linux at command is extremely useful when administering systems, particularly when it is done via scripts. It is a worthy addition to IPFire. Yes, I know it is possible to do the same things from cron but it is far clumsier than at, which is the reason for at to begin with.

Re: Core 110: unbound does not resolve DHCP names

I tried to replicate your issue but it works correctly on both an IPFire Core 110 firewall box and the two servers on our test network. Did you have this issue previous to Core 110? What have you tried to resolve the issue? If you could post more information about your DHCP configuration it would ai...

Thanks for the update. I am going to try to pull this to a test box this weekend, time permitting. Will attempt to give you some feedback after that.

Re: Core 110 Unbound Issue/Bug?

The init file for unbound is in /etc/rc.d/init.d. The diff listed in bugzilla is designed for use with the patch utility. You can either use patch or directly edit the file. If you are not sure how to use these, it might be a good idea to wait for the update. The incorrect application of this change...

Re: Core 110 Unbound Issue/Bug?

Just confirming - the fix from Bugzilla solved the issue on all of the firewalls where it appeared.

Another weird issue: after update and reboot the System ---> Home page reports Note: WARNING: DNSSEC has been disabled But nothing is changed from 109: I use 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 as DNS and looking at the startup messages they come up without any problem.
