Re: OPENVPN - Generate Server certificates and keys

Depending on what settings you used to create the certificates, it could take tens of minutes, if not hours depending on your machine. Like everyone else says, be patient...

Cannot de-select IDS rules

I have a couple ICMP rules causing false positives on my network. Well, for some reason, I cannot seem to de-activate these rules. I have unchecked them and yet I still get IDS alerts that these rules were activated. I'm unchecking the rules and then hitting the update button. Is there another step ...

Re: No access to Green from Blue since update on 122

Hello Tobias. I have a similar setup with having to grant access to the green zone for devices on blue however I used IP based access rules. Everything worked fine after the update to 122 and I never had to edit the firewall rules. I hope this helps.
Sincerely,
Matt

Allow computer monitor to sleep?

I'm running the latest version of ipfire. For some reason, the screen is not going to sleep when the console is left inactive. I thought the previous behavior was that ipfire allowed the monitor to sleep if left inactive but I may have been mistaken. Is there a way to allow the monitor to sleep if l...

Re: Need advice Intel i350, SSD help?

It's deployed at home just serving the wife, myself, my kid, and family and friends. I only have snort, guardian, and openvpn for now. I am looking into swatch for log monitoring and Lynis for additional monitoring. I'm not using it for file serving or anything else but just would like to make it a ...

Need advice Intel i350, SSD help?

I had to reinstall my ipfire and decided to maybe rethink my machine. I believe some components may be overkill and would really appreciate responses from the more experienced network admins here. It's running 16GB of DDR4 2133, Intel Dual Core, Intel i350. I had an SSD in there, but feel it's being...

IPFire, set it and forget it

I have six months experience using IPFire and I have to say that this is an extremely stable firewall solution. It just works and I forget it is even there. I have it for home use and it appears to just be doing an excellent job. I have yet to reset the IPFire machine due to a lock up, glitch or bug...

Necessary to reboot after update?

First of all, I want to thank the developers of this awesome open source firewall. I have used other linux distributions and it really does seem like Ipfire is more stable. It has been running for a couple months on my system and have not had to reboot. I've basically forgotten about this ipfire ser...

Re: clamav doesn't block ssl malicious downloads?

Oh wow, that is a very good explanation. That is a shame. I wish there was a way to block malicious downloads on https that doesn't cause further privacy implications. I have devices on my network that download files with no antivirus protection at all such as mobile phones. I'm not sure exactly wha...

clamav doesn't block ssl malicious downloads?

Is there a way to get clamav to block malicious downloads over https? My clamav is working. It successfully blocks the eicar test file over http, but doesn't over https. Why is that? Is there a way to get that to work? Thank you.

Re: Security issue with samba on blue interface

I have the same problem. I set up samba but it gives access to the blue interface even though I selected it to be off. Is this a bug?
