Re: Olimex-Opensource-Hardware-Board with iPfire?

Be certain to download and read the manual for Oimex A20 devices. The general procedure in https://wiki.ipfire.org/hardware/arm/lemaker/bananapi might work: dd if=u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin of=/dev/mmcblk? bs=1K seek=8 should be appropriate, for any A20 SoC. Then Mount the boot filesystem (1 Partitio...

Re: Problem with network card since core 126

There does appear to be some issue in detecting the MAC addresses of the other ports. I had a look at system log for the period I was having problems but those are not sufficiently detailed to identify the cause. I'm using a USB dongle for RED and it would be difficult for the developers to replicat...

Re: Olimex-Opensource-Hardware-Board with iPfire?

I'm running IPFire on Bananapi and /boot/dtb-4.14.86-ipfire-multi does contain dtb files for six Olimex A20 boards. OTOH, Olimex list sixteen A20 models, so some care would be needed in selecting a board.

Re: Problem with network card since core 126

I've also had intermittent problems with red not being found from core 127.

Try reconfiguring the red interface again, from "setup" then rebooting.

Re: No Internet access on green interface (IPFire)

Hi W4nn4cry, Your school's network also has a router and consequently you need a bit more configuration of IPFire settings. Try connecting your client PC directly to the school's network and note down what DNS & Gateway addresses it is given (these are possibly the same). Then go back to your IPFire...

Re: sda errors

Is there some reason that you have a scheduled, daily reboot ? IPFire typically needs a reboot only following some, but not each, core update.

Much would depend on how the reboot is initiated and whether or not that cleanly unmounts partitons on sda.

Re: raspberry hardwar proxy

Most RPi models have problems with IPFire - see https://wiki.ipfire.org/hardware/arm/start Better to use the onboard Ethernet as GREEN and a plug-in USB-Ethernet adapter as RED. That way you don't lose access to the IPFire device if the USB dongle "drops out" The wiki does report on some of the latt...

Re: [SOLVED] 4G Configuration - ZTE MF 823

After IPFire boots, activate SSH access and log in via terminal. Then run setup and remove the RED interface device. You will probably need to exit setup and re-start it. Then add the MF823 back as RED device. How it should be configured might vary between Telcos (mine is with Telstra, Australia). D...

Re: [SOLVED] 4G Configuration - ZTE MF 823

It's a while since I used my with IPFire. It is critical that it be set to "autoconnect" and AFAIK, that can be done only from Windows, but the procedure is set by the vendor and YMMV. When installing IPFire, it should then appear as another "card", in setup -> networking -> drivers & card assignmen...

Re: Question about core update 126 and the site https://wetransfer.com

Having to set this proxy manually on each workstation is administratively more complex. It's the type of configuration my former ISP was recommending 20 years ago, primarily to minimise download traffic. Simply setting GREEN (and BLUE, if relevant), as per https://wiki.ipfire.org/configuration/netwo...

Re: Will IPFire work with this MB?

You are probably seeing nil response because no one on the list is running this mainboard. Not surprising, because it appears to be oriented to industrial & embedded devices. Additionally it is relatively expensive compared with complete, commodity mini PC. OTOH, the mainboard is from a long establi...

Re: Resolving forum.ipfire.org randomly not working

Hi Deepcuts, I have had similar issues over the last few weeks, although not in recent days, when I have been testing core 127. I am in a time zone 11 hrs ahead of UTC Perhaps the server(s) have some brief daily period of unavailablity. Alternatively I might be trying to connect during a period of h...

Re: broken name servers

Instead of trying to disable DNSSEC, have you tried setting validating DNS servers. see

Re: Core 126 connection drops

Are you running Core 126 behind a router ? If so, then a reliable configuration is shown at:

viewtopic.php?f=51&t=7187&p=119855&hili ... AT#p119855

FWIW, I'm on iiNet VDSL and had no problems using a similar config with core 126 on either i586 or armv5tel.

Re: Intel NIC keeps crashing after core 126 update

Although I don't have an e1000, the descriptor for "ASPM" in PCI-E settings of the UEFI setup screen of one of my mainboards informs: "enabling ASPM may cause some PCI-E devices to fail" The UEFI is from AMI. A possible work around for the e1000 problem is to disable ASPM in BIOS/UEFI settings. Down...
