Re: IPv6 anywhere?

I think IPv6 is very much like being caught trousers down if you have a fancy IPv4 firewall that ignores IPv6. That may be a concern only if you have an atypical setup. Normally you have Internet (IP4, IP6) ---- Firewall --- Internel network (IP4) in this case if you have IPV6 at the internet level...

Re: some valid domains getting blocked

Sorry to revive this old thread. In fact I think it should stay buried since the subject is so vague and I suspect that some people posting 'I have the same problem' may not have the same problem, since it's in fact a very generic problem. Even the OP seemed to have different problems in different p...

Re: Captive Portal Redirection

Hello I tried it and can confirm the strangeness with redirection, using an old Android phone on Blue access with proxy and captive portal; when enabling wifi, it's not possible to connect at all from a browser (no redirection to the captive portal, the access is just blocked and timeout), it's poss...

Most routers specific hardware are arm based
Actually, this is even worse, as quite a few routers are using MIPS, see for example

Re: DNS on my system doesn't work

I just tried adding and deleting aaa from the Reserved Mac table and yes it causes entries in that file to be added when I remove the MAC reservation and deleted when I add MAC reservation. I can't reproduce it. When I click on add in the dynamic reservation line, another line get added to the /var...

Re: DNS on my system doesn't work

DHCP is setup with - Domain name suffix = xyz.com and Primary DNS is set to ipFire's IP address. I have two computers: aaa and bbb - both use DHCP AAA's MAC address is defined in DHCP's Reserved MAC table. BBB's MAC address is not. If I ping aaa.xyz.com, it fails but if I ping bbb.xyz.com it works....

Re: Add a new rule to open a port

I don't understand if i need NAT or not. If what you want is to allow access to the port 51070 of a computer at IP address 192.168.0.6, coming on port 51070 on the RED interface of your Ipfire firewall, you need the NAT, and you should be good by setting the source network to RED and UNsetting the ...

Re: DNS on my system doesn't work

Because IPFire import the DHCP leases from dhcpd to unboud. (unbound-lease-bridge) and so support RFC2136 also with unbound. Thanks for correcting me. As I understand it now, when the checkbox is ON, rfc2136 update is used and so the internal Ipfire DNS server is NOT updated (the installation is su...

Re: DNS on my system doesn't work

I finally got DNS working on ipFire by disabling (counter-intuitive) the "Enable DNS Update" check box as was recommended to me, I don't know who and why it was recommended to you to check 'enable DNS Update', but this unknown person did not understand how Ipfire is built. It's an aggregation of di...

Re: Add a new rule to open a port

Hello

for my rules I do the opposite of what you do: I specify the input network (RED) and don't for the destination network (what's the point ? you specifiy a destination IP address). Besides that, it's a bit odd to set an destination address that is not in the destination network.

Re: Bitrate to WAN simple question

it doesnt work as advertised. Is it advertised as such, really ? While I have never used QOS with Ipfire, I have never seen used for your use case. Quickly perusing the wiki (https://wiki.ipfire.org/configuration/services/qos) it does seem indeed aimed at what I have always seen QOS used for, not w...
