I'm configuring a debian computer to act as a router for my home network. I want to split my home network into two parts and define different firewall rules for these parts. I also want to use dhcp to make sure every time a computer logs in it gets the same ip but is still able to log in somewhere else. The biggest problem now is that I have to make some functions able to someone that has never worked with linux before.
I've worked with software routers like pfsense before and I would like a similar web frontend to this. Does anyone know if there is such a piece of software? I'm not using pfsense itself because I don't want to virtualize it and I need some things like the software raid5 and some htpc software I don't want to try to get working on pfsense. I've previously used webmin untill it was hacked because of an exploit in it so I preferably don't want to use that one. I've been working with the dd-wrt software and something like this would do the trick perfectly!
Requirements - 1) Should have options to show only graphical packages.2) Easy to use.Software-center is outdated and packagekit doesn't work well (search for 'winff' with graphical packages filter) with any backend.
I am looking for some software which acts as a web proxy with a web frontend. In other words my work web access is filtered and I would like to login to my own web proxy on an apache run server and redirect my traffic. If it has a PHP frontend that would be about right.
I want to be able to create a Dialog (similar to the one for Winetricks, run it without parameters to see it) with a checklist that tells my script to go out and download whatever scripts of mine I've selected. I also wish to make a GUI for some of my more complex scripts, such as my Backup script so I can have a nice looking menu instead of a text based one.Does anybody know a good place to learn how to do this, with lots of explanations and breakdowns of each part of the script?
After overcomming a lot of difficulties, my MythTV (Via Epia 10000EG with Hauppauge PVR 500 card) worked with Mythbuntu 9.04. Last year it crashed and I had no time to spare to rebuild it.
Last couple of weeks I had more time and downloaded and tried to install Mythbuntu 10.10. Everything seems to be installed ok, but I get no picture in MythTV when I select "Watch TV" and no picture when I try to record something. When watching TV, the message "Please wait" appears for appr. 5 secs and then the system returns to the menu.
I installed Mythbuntu 10.10 and am using the provided IVTV drivers.
Dmesg and lspci give no errors, every seems to be in order, IVTV drivers are loaded, initialized and errorfree. Cat /dev/video0 gives me static in MPLAYER. The MythTV backendlog doesn't even give a message, the frontend log just says there is no picture...
There seems to be an error between the back and frontend. I checked the settings in capturecards, TV sources, channel edits, etc,etc, but I can't find it.
I know the crontab format and editing is pretty easy, but I always forget the format. So I would like to have a frontend/gui. As far as I can tell a good one doesn't exist anymore.kcron - what I used to use, no longer exists (and I switched to ubuntu from kubuntu)gnome-schedule - does not show all users, does not allow for fine control that kcron had.Does anyone know a good gui/frontend for crontab? I guess I'm just going to have to get in the habit of researching the file syntax, how to edit it, and editing manually.
The thing I like about mplayer is navigation in video at steps of 10s,1m or 10m. There are so many GUI's available yet I have not seen any in which our cursor hovers over slide to see time at that position. Like .....'s flash player allows you to go at any desired time in video.I think if the skin knows the length of video then it can divide length of slide timewise .
When I upgraded to 10.10 mythbuntu and after I did a clean install I get the same results. When I select a recording to play it appears the frontend crashes and I end up logged out of the machine. This happens 100% of the time.
When looking for MySQL GUI, I find many applications which provide a frontend to database management.I am looking for a GUI for database entry, rather than database management, approximating Glom or VFront, but Glom is buggy (and development sluggish) and VFront difficult to get set up.Ideally, I would have my own private (GTK, say) data entry tool, which would look much like an HTML form, with labelled fields for the MySQL columns, Previous/Next buttons, saving the current row and moving you up/down to the next one, radio buttons or drop-down menus for columns with limited entries, etc.Of course, [Tab]-navigation and keyboard shortcuts [Ctrl]+[C], etc., should work as well. (Yes, that is very annoying about Glom, for example.)
I have installed mythbuntu 10.04. It worked well for a few days. Now my frontend does not start or crashes just after booting. You can see the frontend background for a few seconds but the menu does not load. After that, the mythtv window disappears and you can see the ubuntu desktop. Here are the last few lines from the log file:
2010-06-07 07:32:49.622 MythContext: Connecting to backend server: 127.0.0.1:6543 (try 1 of 1) 2010-06-07 07:32:49.623 Using protocol version 56 mount: can't find /dev/sdb in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
I want to make a FTP server with web frontend for administering it, eg creating users, groups, setting which directories users can access and so on.I found some web frontends for proFTPd, like those URL... , bus all of them seems to be very old and doesn't work nicely. I tried ProFTP Administrator and it won't work.Do you know some solutions to manage ftp server users, groups, permissions over web? Or by some frontend program.
My intention is to have EngineX on the frontend handling all static files, and Apache + mod_php in charge of handling PHP requests. I have optimized nginx to be as efficient as possible in handling static files, but have very little experience with Apache. Since Apache would only be processing PHP requests, would the standard Apache optimization guides suffice or would it best to configure it differently?
PS: this is a dedicated file server, the database is hosted separately.
I can't get mythtv to play television with my Hauppauge HVR-850 tv card. I was able to view tv in mplayer, so I know that the card is working. The tv signal is broadcast only (no cable). I had to set the card type to DVB DTV capture card (v3.x) to get mythtv-setup to successfully scan. I was able to successfully scan both with a "full scan" and with a channels.conf file that I had generated earlier when tinkering tv in mplayer. Unfortunately, the mythtv frontend failed to play any live tv. It said "Error: MythTV is using all inputs, but there are no active recordings?"
I set up Ubuntu on an old iBook G4, planning to use it as a front end to my main box. Installed 10.04 no problem, and from there, used Software Center to install MythTV Front end. Have done the same thing on a netbook, no problem.
However, on this PPC Mac, the front end works fine, navigation, menus, etc, until I try to play a recorded programme - the screen is blank, and I just get white noise from the speakers.
(BTW am trying Ubuntu as I don't have a Mac OS new enough to get any of the current Mac MythFrontEnd builds working)
I am testing several programs for video editing and video format change.I have been trying avidemux, and now I am trying to use ffmpeg, and a graphical frontend for it, Winff.As an example I am trying to convert an MP4 file to AVI. I obtain an error that says: "Unknown encoder 'libxvid'". How could I possibly now what I have to install to be able to convert the files without errors?
PD: This is the output from ffmpeg when called from Winff:

I cannot see my debian linux machine in my virgin media router>>attached devices. I can see everything else including my raspberry pi.
The box is headless but I connected up to tv temporary and did ifconfig and got the ip address. I can ssh to it and connect to minecraft server I have running on it but I would like to know why I cannot see it in the router.
Because of the configuration of my house, I need two routers.I have a DLink ADSL router as my main router and the Belkin N1 as my repeater.I have set up the IP address in the Belkin to be 10.1.1.10 - my DLink is 10.1.1.1. I have disable the dhcp in the Belkin and set the DNS as ISP provided. [URL]..I have set the channel to 11 and in the Ubuntu Network Manger I have set the IPV4 to Link Local Only. I can see the Belkin and connect with my PC.but it will not take me through to the internet.
I want to set up a Linux box as a wireless router to replace our existing Netgear WNR1000 router, as I believe the Netgear does not support the coming IPv6 protocol. Unfortunately, it is not flashable with OpenWRT or DD-WRT presently.
As we have Comcast, our cable modem acts as a dumb modem according to the customer support guy I talked to, and our router is the one that asks for the IP address from DHCP. Thus, when Comcast switches over to IPv6, I don't believe my existing router would work, correct?
My idea is to take a Linux box and put two NICs and a wireless adapter in it, using IPCop or Smoothwall to set up a router. I could then enable IPv6 support for when we have IPv6 with Comcast. Is that possible? Would there be a way to get BIND to hand out private IP addresses in the same subnet on the both the LAN NIC and the wireless card?
I have a desktop PC running Ubuntu 9.10 and Windows 7, and a Eee PC 701 laptop running EasyPeasy Ubuntu 9.04. I'd like to connect the desktop to the laptop with a wired connection (eth0), then the laptop to my ADSL router using wireless (ath0).
I have a crossover ethernet cable (I bought on ebay). I have set up my laptop with a static IP address on my LAN and it uses OpenDNS.
I have added this to /etc/sysctl.conf on the laptop:
This is a variation on what I found on other sites describing how to set up a router. I don't understand iptables very well, but I gather that the above two lines should set up forwarding so that traffic from my router to the laptop will be forwarded to the desktop, and vice versa.
But this doesn't work. The connection doesn't even establish between the laptop and the desktop.
I'm having trouble getting my network set up the way that I want it/had it. You see, when I first set up my network, I just had my cable modem going directly to my standard wired router (A D-Link DI-604), which had DHCP,and was connected to all of the computers on my network. I had one switch hooked up to one of the ports of the router, but this was a regular switch, and it would not try to assign IP addresses, it would just pass through the DHCP info as I wanted.
Now however, my network setup has changed. My room mate and I both got laptops, and we decided that we wanted to have wireless access so we didn't have to constantly plug in to the router.
Now my network is set up like this: The modem is hooked up to the router(DI-604), which is hooked up on the LAN side to our computers, our switch (which is hooked up to 3 more computers), and to a wireless router card (A Gigabyte GN-BC01).
The wireless router card has two jacks for ethernet. One for WAN, and one for LAN. The LAN side we have plugged only into the computer in which the card is installed.
Now the problem is this: The wireless router card comes with DHCP by default, and it's assigning addresses to the laptops and to the computer hat it's in, and worse, the IP addresses are on a different subnet than that of the main dlink router. The Main (dlink) router assigns addresses from 192.168.0.1 (itself) to 192.168.0.254, while the wireless router card assigns addresses from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254 (itself).
Because of this, I cannot access services on the wireless network from my wired network or vice versa. The first thing I tried was setting the card to assign addresses from 192.168.0.12 to 192.168.0.253, however it just said "internal error" when I tried to do this. I decided that this may be because it sees that it was being assigned an address on it's WAN side on the same subnet. So the next thing I tried was disabling DHCP and setting the "LAN IP Address" to 192.168.0.12, hoping that the DHCP would just go through the card, like a switch. I would have set the LAN IP address to be assigned by DHCP, but this was not an option, so I decided that'd be the best thing to set it to.
Once again however, setting the LAN ip address to an address on the same subnet as that of the IP assigned to it's WAN side caused it to report an "internal error". I verified that this was the issue by setting the LAN address to several other private IP addresses to test (I.E. 10.0.0.1, 192.168.3.1, 192.168.5.12).
My question then really is: How do I set up both routers so that I can access services and computers from each network from the other network. Should I set them with different subnets and set the gateway on the wireless network to the main router? To the wireless router card? Should I put them on the same subnet? Will it know how to communicate?

I wonder what is your opinion about the best method for using an ADSL modem. Router or bridge? I did read some articles that say "that the bridge mode gives you more stability and has higher speed". Is that true?
Furthermore, you suggest any alternative to "pppoeconf"? I've been getting this errors ( in the plog), related to "PAD packet loss" and also errors in "PPPOE Discovery", even when I am connected. When this things starts to show up on the log, my connection "pauses" for some seconds. I do not feel very safe with this program.
I've just bought a Linksys WRT610N router and I ran through various problems during the configuration, that brought some questions.Here is what I did to configure it (following the short manual that I got with the router)1. plugged the router in my modem and in my computer via ethernet cables2. entered its IP address (given on the manual) on my browser and logged in with the factory login3. changed the login passwordAfter this the problems that I have encountered are that:I set up the administration of the router to be disabled via wireless and enabled locally via https, but when saving those settings I either lost the connection (the browser telling me the server was not accessible) or asked confirm a security certificate after being (logically) redirected to the https version of the administration pageafter trying to loggin again, I wasn't able to login via https but only via http even if after logging those parameters were still as I set them (wireless administrative login disabled and local administrative login enabled only via https)
via https when getting something else than "the server is not responding or could be too busy", I was prompted the untrusted connection site, saying that"192.168.1.1 uses an invalid security certificate.The certificate is not trusted because it is self-signed.The certificate is only valid for Linksys.The certificate expired on 01/01/71 01:21. The current time is 19/04/11 22:56.(Error code:sec_error_expired_issuer_certificate)"I noticed that after loosing the connection and not being able to reach the router either with http or https, the only way I was then able to reconnect to it was to go into (I am using firefox 4 on squeeze) edit > preferences > advanced > encryption > view certificates > servers and delete the linksys certificate
