  1. Sorry it has taken me so long to respond to these posts, I have been busy and haven't had the time. I say that it is a much, much more robust firewall solution due to the MANY features available on this platform that just are not available on (a stock) smoothwall install. For instance, with pfsense you have dual-wan with auto fall over support, smoothwall (the last time I looked) can't even do this. Pfsense also has support for traffic shaping out-of-box, again, smoothwall doesn't. In addition to these features, it also has support for incoming load balancing, outgoing load balancing, CARP , e
  2. Do you think that you can post your cfg file for postfix?
  3. I am a BSD person, and as such, i would like to recommend pfsense. It is based off of FreeBSD 6.X and is, in my opinion, a much, much more robust and secure firewall solution than what smoothwall will ever be. Before you say that i haven't tried smoothwall, i have. Look at both solutions before you make your decision.

    Can't make

    Did you try and run ./configure before trying to run make?
  5. OS Name: Microsoftr Windows VistaT Ultimate I am using it now for gaming and for every day computing. the only thing i dislike about it is that canon doesn't have a driver that is compatible with my printer right now. so, i guess i will be going back to XP until that driver is available!
  6. I just typed this out, so there will most likely be a typo or 5 in it. You will also have to update some of the driver names and paths as this file was being used on a FreeBSD system.

    What's going on?!?! I hope that everyone has had a good summer. I have been absent for quite some time now. I hope you all have been keeping things going on IRC? I have been taking a break with that... I am now single again, so i have been out whoring around. Any way... enjoy the rest of your summer. Peace.

  9. here is my SS... i have also posted my icons used on the startbar.
  10. I thought that it would be fun for us all to have an uptime-league, so i have created one. All you have to do is go to uptime-project, create an account, join the Linux-Noob team and download the proper client for your platform - linux only please. Then install the client and edit the /etc/yasuc.conf to reflect the proper values for the account that you created. It might also be a good idea to use cron to update the time. While you are there go into your profile and get an uptime image and place it in your signature for the linux-noob forums. Please, no jokes about my uptime. I just in
  11. I run several computers with linux on them.... Main server: Supermicro X6DAE-G 2 x 2.8GHz Xeons with EMT-64 support 3ware 7506-8 RAID controller with 1.6TB of space 1GB of Crucial PC2700 ECC 80GB WD system drive running Slackware 10.1 Kernel version 2.4.29 This computer: Asus Pundit 1.8GHz intel P4 512MB Crucial PC2700 160GB WD Slackware 10.1 Kernel Another desktop: VPR Matrix (Bestbuy brand) 2.3GHz P4 512MB of RAM running Slackware 10.1 Kernel version Router/Firewall: Soyo Li-7000 533MHz Celeron 512MB Crucial PC133 running Smoothwall E
  12. In Slackware you would add the command used to start the session in /etc/rc.d/rc.local.

    Wednesday fun! =)

    Is that real? I have never seen that much ice on anything. You would have a great excuse to not go to work, that is for sure.

    USB driver

    Copy and paste this: su - (enter pass) mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/thumb

    USB driver

    commands: su - mkdir /mnt/thumb && mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/thumb that should make the directory /mnt/thumb and then mount the device to the directory there. You can 'cd' to that directory using "cd /mnt/thumb" and use 'ls' to list the contents of this device. If you would like the device to show on your desktop or whatever you can create a link to that device.
  16. Okay, I am trying to learn iptables. I have just built a new server that will be running samba, ssh, proftpd, and possibly apache in the near future. What i would like to do is close off all unneeded ports and only allow ports needed for my listed programs. I have been reading around on different sites about the iptables, but I would have to admit that i am a bit confused about the whole thing. Okay, so, if i wanted to block all ports except 20-21 what would i have to do? iptables -A -INPUT -i eth0 -sport 20:21 -j ACCEPT ?? iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -sport 1:19 -j DROP ??
  17. It has been a while since i have burnt a .cue and .bin file in linux, but when i did i used cdrdao. It looks to me as if you don't have that installed (or possibly you just need to pick the right driver?). If you find that you do have it installed you can burn the files via command line like this: cdrdao scanbus (this will get the device ID): then issue this command (replace the device ID with yours): cdrdao write -v 2 --speed 12 --device 0,5,0 --eject whatever.cue If you don't have it installed you can get it here http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.p...package
  18. the other two computers will be running win2k or winxp... i would like the server to act as a gateway for the other two computers as well as to be able to be accessed by the other two computers for filesharing purposes IE; if i download something on one of the second computers and dont want to store it on it's hard drive, so i would store it on the server's drive. Well, to share files between the Linux computer and the windows computer, you would have to use samba. To use your computer as a gateway/firewall you would have to use iptables. Although, I would really have to advice not to u
  19. We are gonna need a bit more information than that. What exactly do you want the server to do? What OS are the other computers running? and any other information that might pertain to this.
  20. I am 22 now, but will be 23 this Sunday (26th). I am getting old.
