Ipfire on Routers (like DD-WRT)

Is there any development to get Ipfire to run on routers, basically the same as DD-WRT is doing ?
I guess the answer will be no, but I thought I will ask as it would be quite nice since DD-WRT seems to be going extinct.

Re: Bitrate to WAN simple question

Anyone know how to get this to work? I really need it, but it might be a bug.
Anyone use it successfully. ?
I need to know that it at least works before I submit a bugreport.

Re: local IP exposed to whatsmyip

Oh yes, you really described it expertly. I have been chasing down these mystery cloudfare garbage connections that I couldnt account for on my firewall. I tried to figure exactly where it came from by hard blocking it on ipfire. Well nothing hung or broke, so now I know why after your post. Firefox...

Re: local IP exposed to whatsmyip

cloudfare ... please not.

Thanks for the additional issue, I will take time to read it up to understand it properly.
Very appreciated.

I think there might be a need for a Firefox fork.

Re: Bitrate to WAN simple question

Hi thanks I already tried that. It is really confusing options. 1) If I just add a bitrate to the last field and save it does nothing. I still have full speed out tested with ftp upload. 2) If I do preset, it tells me to enter a bitrate in red letters at the top, I enter a very low rate, say 100kbit...

Bitrate to WAN simple question

I want to throttle the bitrate to wan on my firewall. I am not exactly sure how to do this. Maybe I was looking in the wrong places or misunderstood the interface. With todays approaching gigabit internet I want to throttle uploads to something safe. Let's say I want to throttle all outgoing traffic...

local IP exposed to whatsmyip

I never had this before, and wonder if it is the new firefox version that is leaking my local ip address past the firewall. I have firefox 69.0 installed . If you have ipfire as firewall currently and firefox equal or later to what I state above, Please run the following link and see if your local I...

intrusion detection

Can someone point me to in depth examples of how to use intrusion detection on ipfire as I want to know from those currently using it, how successful they are detecting intrusions. I never used it before as I cannot find in-depth documentation and even though it must be a reroll of a known package I...

Block a range of Ip adresses.

Without using ipchains directly, is there a way in ipfire to block a range of ip addresses. e.g. 64.233.160.0 – 64.233.191.255 I also checked the domain blocking that is in the ipfire interface. E.g. blocking a site by name doesnt work at all. I entered a domain name I could test and it never blocke...

Re: Why so many open ports ?

Regardless. It is better to remove that as it will compromise users as it does not work on all systems. If the easy lure of using it was not in the Ipfire configuration, I wouldnt have had this problem. I really dont think that IBM X-servers have such trivial hardware problems. Enterprise servers ha...

Re: Why so many open ports ?

I found the problem. Once you choose three interfaces Red Green and DMZ, the interface blinking test blinks the wrong interface. In my case I have 2 broadcom and an intel card, with another built in intel card on an IBM Xserver X-Series 336 Rackserver servicing a 10-server rack. I mention the model ...

Re: Why so many open ports ?

The cable router has an internal DHCP network of 192.168 etc. Firewall gets address from DHCP on cable router. Nothing out of the ordinary here. I double checked and It is the RED interface I scanned. If my internal network was on the Red interface I wouldnt have been able to access anything on the ...

Re: Why so many open ports ?

Ipfire is your router right? Regardless I dont think you know anything about security. You need to test your firewall One on One from a laptop connected straight to youor red interface if you are serious about security not by the 1000 port limited online scanners. That is really dangerous. It is pre...

Re: Why so many open ports ?

Scanning the first 1000 ports is not really an intense scan. I will post the nmap scan you must use. Here it is nmap -p 1-65535 -T4 -A -v AND DO IT DIRECTLY ON YOUR IPFIRE RED INTERFACE not through your router. Your router blocks ports. Also the IP address you scanned is that of your ROUTER on the w...
