Re: Feature request - "at" command

Howdy... thanks for recommending fcrontab... I had already considered it as a temporary solution. This isn't the first application for which I've missed having "at", though. Perhaps I'll have a better ISP (speed, latency, and no %^&#@!* data caps) available some bright day in the future, and won't h...

Feature request - "at" command

I suggest inclusion of "at" in the IPFire distro. My (one and only available) ISP has onerous download caps. The ISP provides a late night "bonus" (bone us? :) ) period, and I'd like to schedule IPFire upgrades (and resulting downloads) via commmand line use of pakfire during those periods. Thanks f...

Re: after core update 136, dhcpd stops running on red0

No offence intended, but how does the presence of updates on patchwork or git resolve the problems encountered by current users of Core 136?

Thank you for the quick reply. I don't have that platform, so in the words of Emily Litella, "Never mind!"

what is addon "firmware-update-20190329-1"?

While poking around in the addons, I stumbled across "firmware-update-20190329-1". Anyone have an idea what this is, and how to determine if I might need it?

Re: Odd NTP Offset Issues

Greetings. I made similar changes to /etc/ntp.conf and also saw better offset results: Nov 9 01:55:15 firewall ntpdate[9881]: adjust time server 47.190.36.230 offset 0.238157 sec Nov 9 02:55:13 firewall ntpdate[12259]: adjust time server 198.137.202.56 offset 0.199156 sec Nov 9 03:55:14 firewall ntp...

Re: petition: support for dns-over-tls

Re: Secure DNS-over-TLS alongside unbound?

The problem I have with the current IPFire DNSSEC is that my ISP munges DNS packets. Because the unbound startup uses dig to determine if DNSSEC is supported upstream, and dig doesn't support DNS/TLS, I've had to modify the startup (see https://gitlab.com/snippets/1706804) I'd love to test unbound o...

Re: backup -> ISO

A "non-iso" backup is created with a name consisting of the date and time of creation, such as "YYYYMMDD-HHMM.ipf". If created when "Exclude logfiles" is selected, it will not contain entries from /var/log. If multiple backups are listed, you may wish to select the latest one to restore, unless you ...
