Re: internet slowness using IPfire

If you don’t mind my asking, why did you switch from 64 bit to 32 bit?

Re: internet slowness using IPfire

Update: After turning off QOS, I ran several speed tests and I got results ranging from 174 Mb/s all the way up to 202 Mb/s. The average was probably about 184 Mb/s. Not too bad. Just out of curiosity, is there any benefit of me switching over to the 64-bit build of IPfire? I'm running the 32-bit ve...

Re: internet slowness using IPfire

Is QOS active? If yes, how are the settings? No, QOS is not active. I’ve never used it EDIT: It actually WAS turned on!! I don’t know why. I don’t remember ever turning it on. I turned it off, ran another speed test and it went up to 150 MB/s! It’s still not the 215 Mb/s I was seeing when directly ...

FIXED: internet slowness using IPfire

So I had the 100 Mb/s internet package with Charter Spectrum and I was pulling down around 82-95 Mb/s on my home machines that were behind IPfire, so that's not too bad. Charter recently upgraded me to the 200 Mb/s package and I just hooked up the new cable modem today and verified with Charter that...

Re: what file are the hosts in?

I know this is an old thread, but what is the syntax used to add an alias into the /var/ipfire/main/hosts file? What's the delimiter? Semicolon? Another comma? This syntax looks strange to me.

Re: IPFire as a Web Content and Proxy Only

The easiest way to configure the web proxy is to use transparent mode. That way, you don't have to manually configure the proxy on each client. However, if you choose to use the web proxy feature of IPfire, I would test it thoroughly. I've had so many problems with the web proxy blocking legitimate ...

Guardian not logging

I was poking around in the Guardian section of the IPfire Web UI and I noticed there was a blocked IP address at the bottom. I then logged into IPfire via ssh and went to /var/log/guardian and saw only one file, which was guardian.log and the timestamp was from Oct 31, 2016 and the file is blank. Do...

Re: Proxy Online Gaming

I'm curious to know how this turns out. I've noticed problems with the web proxy myself, such as the inability to get to legitimate sites with it turned on.

Re: Javascript (?) is blocked

I've noticed problems with the web proxy even bofore the DNSSEC mess. There are some sites that just won't load with the web proxy on, such as ticketmaster.com. It takes several minutes to load with the proxy on and then when you click on some of the links on the page, you get a timeout error. Turn ...

Re: No internet after setup

You don't have both the firewall and the router handing out IP addresses, do you? If so, turn off the DHCP server on one of them. What private IP range do you want to use? Most people use the 192.168.x.x range, but you can use a 10.x.x.x network if you choose to. Everything is going to have to be in...

Re: Error with clean installation of 107

Hi all, As temporary solution until all DNS servers will be DNSSEC aware, I am sending to my DHCP clients OpenDNS DNS server(s) (that are NOT DNSSEC aware!) and do not use unbound DNS resolution anymore. It works: my computers and mobile phones use OpenDNS servers and IpFire use other DNS servers. ...

Re: system shutdown using fcrontab

Log in via command line (ssh) and become the root user. Type in this command: fcrontab -e That will open up crontab in editor mode with vi. Go to the very bottom of the file and hit the o key (lower o, not zero). This will put you on a new line in edit mode. Insert a comment starting with the # symb...

Re: No internet after setup

I'm still confused here. You said you installed IPfire on a dedicated computer, but in your first post you said you installed it on a Linux operating system through VMware. That means it's not on a dedicated computer. IPfire is designed to be run on top of bare metal. It is its own operating system ...

Re: NFS not working

I think you can set static ports like the ones below: LOCKD_TCPPORT=32803 LOCKD_UDPPORT=32769 MOUNTD_PORT=892 RQUOTAD_PORT=875 STATD_PORT=662 STATD_OUTGOING_PORT=2020 See this article about using NFS on a Red Hat server with the IPtables firewall. Maybe it will help you out. http://www.computernetwo...

Re: NAT 1:1 and a subnet behind this.

Why do you need two firewalls? Is the Fortigate not capable of isolating the red/green traffic for you?
