Re: OpenVPN n2n / site 2 site feature broken

Under no circumstances do we wish to appear to be criticizing the IPFire developers who work very hard for our benefit. It's important for the developers to hear the experiences of the people who are actually using IPFire. This plays a large part in the future development of it. We do regularly part...

Re: OpenVPN n2n / site 2 site feature broken

schories - we ran into this issue when we experienced the same problem you were having. The solution was to NOT reuse the same name for the openVPN net to net connection. This happened to us a long time ago but, if memory serves, we traced it down to a file not being deleted when the net-2-net conne...

Re: PostgreSQL for IPFire

This would be a great addition to IPFire in my opinion. I can see a number of uses for it.

Now if I could just convince the developers that dropping OpenVPN is an enormous mistake, I would be quite happy. There isn't a chance that IPSEC can pass a PCI audit.

Re: Cryptographic warning & error in Core 123

ummeegge - Odd! All of our updated systems still had the old file. Not sure if we did something wrong or if this is a known issue. I will go back and check our Core 123 test system to see what is installed there.

Best regards,

Re: DHCP page - Hostname

You will find, eventually, issues with this. In particular, IoT devices have a tendency to "behave badly'. But over time, it will happen to all of the DHCP hosts. it's used to be tolerable with dnsmasq, but just simply doesn't work well at all with the change to unbound. Entering the hostnames in th...

Re: DHCP page - Hostname

Once upon a time, in IPFire the first field, terminated by the first space in the Remarks field for each fixed lease was used to set the hostname. According to the IPFire wiki it is still the case, but I can tell you from experience it doesn't work or doesn't work reliably. I had done a mod for IPCo...

Re: Issue with IPSec after upgrade to Core 122?

Are you setting up host-to-net or net-to-net connections? Asking because it's not clear what you have currently based on what you posted.

Re: Override DNS option

I can confirm using unbound with a local data file works correctly. We use it to set DNS for mail servers which live inside the firewall. Local clients see the local ip address, and external clients see the DNS provided address. Its also a handy place to set up MX and PTR records for the local netwo...

Re: Clamav Outdated

First, don't panic! Just because the version of clamav in IPFire is not the most current version doesn't mean it does not work correctly or have vulnerabilities. It's just not the latest release of the clamav program. For reference, the current clamav version is 0.100.1. I did see in the IPFire deve...

Re: Support for additional NIC's and VLAN support via the GUI

According to the developers, IPFire 3.x will support this. However, 3.x will not be released any time soon. I'm not aware of any plans to add this to 2.x. Others may want to add to this conversation.

Re: Network interface change

IPFire 2.x only supports the 4 network connections - Red, Green, Orange, and Blue. IPFire 3.x will support more interfaces, but will not be released for some considerable amount of time. Should you actually need more interfaces, at this point in time, you will need to look elsewhere unless you are q...

Re: IPFire 2.21 is available for testing problem

Updated our test IPFire system without any issues. System came right up after reboot and no issues issues so far. FYI - we had been testing the previous 4.14.x kernels on this this machine. Out of an abundance of caution, the 4.14.x kernel was deleted and the grub file recreated BEFORE upgrading thi...

Power cycling your system should resolve your issue. There should be no issues with doing this.

Re: OpenVPN-2.4.x integration into IPFire

I'd like to congratulate everyone who worked so hard to bring OpenVPN 2.4 to Core 120. It was a very major effort and the result is surely worth it.
