Re: dns servers: local recursor

I know this is a (very) old thread. But I just want to add a me too on version 2.23 update 138. Changed DNS servers via setup to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4. Main page showed local recursor, but netexternal showed both Google servers under DNSSEC information. After /etc/init.d/unbound update-forwarders, mai...

DHCP server fixed leases wiped

I just noticed that the fixed leases list gets wiped after a change to the DHCP settings. I had a number of fixed leases. I then changed the start address of the DHCP server (on green). The list was still there. Then I added a lease and now the list only had the newly added entry. Surely, this can't...

Re: Install IPFire from USB stick to apu2d4 via its USB 3.0 front panel over serial

Have you enabled hardware handshake or xon-xoff in putty? Both must be disabled for isolinux. Good point. I will have to check... Yep, that was it. Which also explains why I was able to install a system before. Different laptop with putty profile set correctly so long ago for Alix, that I don't rem...

Re: Install IPFire from USB stick to apu2d4 via its USB 3.0 front panel over serial

Yes, I am. When the APU boots, I can control it with the keyboard. When the IsoLinux menu shows, I can't. I have since installed IPFire with the help of an extra keyboard connected directly to the APU2. Putty is working properly using the same serial converter. I use the same converter for other pur...

APU2 keyboard problem during install [solved]

This was solved in another thread. Apparently flow control needs to be disabled for IsoLinux. =================================== I was having a problem with the keyboard running the ISO from a USB drive on an APU2d4, using putty. I haven't figured out how to fix it yet, but a work around was to con...

Re: Install IPFire from USB stick to apu2d4 via its USB 3.0 front panel over serial

I have found a work around for the keyboard problem. When I connect a keyboard directly to the APU2d4, I can use that to select the serial setup. After that, the installation continues and responds to the putty keyboard again. Apparently the IsoLinux menu and the BIOS are not working together correc...

Re: Install IPFire from USB stick to apu2d4 via its USB 3.0 front panel over serial

I am having a different problem with running the ISO from a USB drive on an APU2d4. I have dd'ed the latest ISO to the drive. It checks out fine and the APU2d4 boots into the isolinux menu. However, at this point it stops responding to the keyboard. The output is strange too. The menu entries are di...

Re: Problem restoring backup from ISO

If the iso was created with an other hardware it is normal that you have to rerun setup after restore because the assignment of the nics not match. No, exact same hardware. More experiments with restoring backups show that network settings do not get (fully) restored. For instance, make a backup, c...

Improvement request: disabling firewall rules

In order to disable a firewall rule, one clicks the check box in the action column. This reloads the page and brings one back to the top. This makes it tedious to disable a number of rules quickly. It would be much appreciated if the mechanism could be changed to allow one to click a number of check...

Problem restoring backup from ISO

I am testing the restore process (from an ISO) and that failed. The system gets installed properly. Many settings seem to have been restored properly too. For instance the root password. But, setting up the firewall during boot fails miserably. First error is this: iptables v1.4.21: Empty interface ...

Block ping on RED

I can't seem to find a setting that allows me to prevent a ping response on RED. I can see from the IpTables chains that ping is always accepted by the ICMPINPUT chain which makes it impossible to block by a rule, because rules are evaluated after ICMPINPUT.

Am I overlooking something obvious?

Feature request: log only rules

I sometimes find it useful to only log events, but leave the decision to reject or accept implicit to whatever has been set on the chain. It seems IpFire expects me to always choose reject, drop or accept. Which becomes a burden when the default setting on the chain is changed, because then all supp...
