Ubuntu Security :: Firestarter Fail In Boot Log?

Oct 20, 2010

I've been using Firestarter for a while and have used it to set-up inbound and outbound policies (which are probably way too restricitve) but since turning on boot logging the other day I have noted that the boot log contains the message:

* Starting the Firestarter firewall [fail] I find this somewhat alarming. I have seen post[URL].ht= firestarter (although have not added it the auto startup list and do not wish to have it start without the root password). What I would like to know is as the computer boots up does it set the iptables to their last setting irrespective of whether firestarter starts or does firestarter need to start to set the iptables and therefore my policies?

Ubuntu Security :: Firestarter Prevents Internet Connection?

Jan 1, 2011

I am running ubuntu 10.10. I recently enabled the firewall and installed Firestarter to configure it. Bad decision apparently. I can't connect to the internet using Firefox unless I first stop the firewall using Firestarter. After I do that, Firefox connects to the internet just fine.

If I uninstall Firestarter, will the ubuntu firewall function as it did originally, before I configured it? Or will it continue to function the way it does right now, which doesn't allow me to connect to the internet?

Ubuntu Security :: Changed From Firestarter To Gufw - Conflicts

Mar 11, 2011

Just want to stealth ports on my laptop. Had problems with firestarter when I installed in on 10.10. Set Firestater back to defaults and then dumped it with:

sudo apt-get purge firestarter
Set up Gufw to defaults and now am not sure what I am seeing with iptables.
iptables -L shows .....

Do these settings look correct for default settings for Gufw? or do I still have some problems with the old firestarter settings not being removed. All I want is all ports stealthed. I know that ping is enabled but I believe that is a default setting in ufw. Could I restore iptables to default with:

sudo iptables -F
and then enable Gufw and set default?

Security :: Active Connections Showing In Firestarter 1.0.3?

Feb 26, 2010

I am running Firestarter on Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit. I have noticed several times that after closing all web apps (Firefox, Thunderbird) that some entries remain under the heading "Active connections" on the Firestarter "Status" tab. Often these show no source program. Currently I have 2 showing which show Firefox as the source. These persist after Firefox is shut down. I have verified that no Firfox process is running. And both of the IPs point to google.I have Disconnected eht0 and they still show. I have logged out and back in and they still show. I must reboot the machine to make these entries go away. Which makes me think perhaps this is a bug in Firestarter(?) Is there another way I can identify truly active connections?

Ubuntu Security :: Restrict Open Ports In Firestarter When Using Torrents?

Aug 19, 2010

I am trying to configure Bittorando and iptables using Firestarter. I have got it working but am concerned about security holes.

Let me explain.

AIUI, the Bittornado program contacts the "tracker" on various ports which (from the previously blocked connections in Firestarter) ranged from 4664 to 65532. Therefore, currently I have set this range to be open to allow downloads of the torrent.

However, this seems, IMHO, to devalue to point of having a restrictive exit policy for Firestarter since now virtually all ports are open. I can see nothing on the Bittornado client to restrict the outgoing ports although the "listening" (incoming) ports can be restricted.

I would prefer to have my system locked-down so that the minimal number of ports are open to initiate external connections so is there any way to achieve this with Bittornado?

Fedora Security :: Firestarter Firewall Manager Keeps Crashing After About 5 Minutes. Restarts, Runs For A While, Then Crashes?

Apr 12, 2009

Have homebrewed machine, was running Fedora 8. Installed Fedora 10.Firestarter firewall manager keeps crashing after about 5 minutes. Restarts, runs for a while, then crashes.Thought it might be an IPTABLES turf war with the native Fedora 10 gui firewall manager, so disabled that at System > Admin > Firewall. Also disabled SElinux. Still have problems.Firestarter firewall seems to work OK, just the gui Firestarter monitor/manager.If anyone has ideas as to cause, I'll take a clue.I could use Firestarter to generate the IPTABLES by ..manually editing the /etc/firestarter/inbound|outbound/allow-.. files and then../etc/init.d/firestarter restartBut I find the events log useful to look at. Anyone know where the events log file is kept in the file system?

Ubuntu :: Firestarter Removal - Error "zooming Up The Screen Containing Firestarter In It"

Feb 5, 2010

I installed firestarter and then at a later date uninstalled/purged it, both actions via synaptic. I have a very verbose boot, I like to see what's going on, and noticed after the uninstall/purge that I was getting an error zooming up the screen containing firestarter in it. After many restarts I found that a file was left in /etc/network/if-up.d/50firestarter and this file was simply a script trying to restart firestarter. At this point I've commented out the calling line and followed the commented line with exit 0. This removes the error but there's still a link calling the file so, is this a bug or am I missing something? It appears the uninstall/purge wasn't entirely complete.

Debian Configuration :: Firestarter Fails To Start On System Boot

Jul 11, 2011

I have just recently installed firestarter to get an idea of iptables editing with a GUI. Firestarter works great and I love it, however when I turn my system on, and my system is booting up the terminal displays a "Failed" message when attempting to start up firestarter. Now I have been doing my homework (reserch) and have read that a user will get this error because firestarter trys to load prior to the network manager starting up. I have also read some other variables that can cause this is if you use network manager and have a password on your user account (which I do have) can cause this issue.

However in most cases from what I have read is even though it gives the user a "Failed" startup message, once the user logs in, and is connected to the internet firestarter will actually load the iptables. I did some tests and from what I understand I can see that this is true because I have allowed access to certain torrent trackers, and denied access to others, and I can see some come online. Does firestarter load iptables once the user logs in? Or once it fails to load, does it not load at all unless you manually open/load the application. If firestarter just modifies iptables, then once I save my listings in firestarter then I really don't need it to start up correct?

Fedora Security :: Setting Up A Webserver And SElinux Keeps Stopping Httpd / Appache And Making It Fail

Jul 12, 2010

I am setting up a web server and SElinux keeps stopping httpd/appache and making it fail. Everything works fine when SElinux is set to permisive, so I know it is SElinux causing the problem. I have all the apache/httpd items allowed in the SElinux bool and even added the line the troubleshooter told me to add but the problem still persists. Here is what SElinux puts out:


several times and it does nothing. I have all the permissions set to Apache as owner and group and allow execution on all the files.

Ubuntu :: Windows 7 And Dual Boot Fail, Repartition?

Apr 17, 2010

I already had Windows 7 installed and decided to try out Ubuntu--just to, you know, mess around with stuff. During the partitioning part of the installation, I didn't pay attention as to how much space/volume I would shrink Windows down to, so I just went ahead and pressed forward with the default amount already on there (all of of the space went to Ubuntu, I'm thinking).

Now whenever I turn on my computer, I get a grub menu. On the list is Linux xxxx, Linux etc (blah blah blah), and then Windows 7 loader. It doesn't work, and suggests that I put in the Windows installation disc.

This is what my partitions look like on Gparted:

I have the installation disc. Somewhere.

I'd like to keep the dual boot on Ubuntu and Windows 7 if that's possible.But since Ubuntu is already working, if it's easier to just delete Windows 7, I'd like to know how to do that, too.
