[SOLVED THX] raspberry hardwar proxy

Post by ipfire987 » February 7th, 2019, 7:55 pm

Hello,

I have a raspberry pi.
I want to use ipfire as a proxy in order to black list some web site for example (facebook, youtube...).
For the red interface I use an ethernet connexion.

And for the green interface which hardware can i use ?

thanks for all :)

Most RPi models have problems with IPFire - see https://wiki.ipfire.org/hardware/arm/start

Better to use the onboard Ethernet as GREEN and a plug-in USB-Ethernet adapter as RED. That way you don't lose access to the IPFire device if the USB dongle "drops out" The wiki does report on some of the latter, but it is difficult to identify the devices from information provided by vendors. In that case, simply buy a low cost device and it will probably work.

At my tests the internal nics drops more often. The internal nic als also a USB Device even if it soldered to the board so it make not much difference. The stablest device seems to be the wlan.

I hope the next kernel will help more (planned for core128) because there are some DMA fixes in the upstream kernel...
