im having a bit of a problem with Firestarter, i have Transmission opened and i am downloading a movie but when i check Firestarter i see hundreds and hundreds of Ip's that are blocked, and like 10ip's every second that get blocked.
I updated my system with system updates and when i restarted.I couldn't access the internet from my desktop. i got on laptop internet worked just fine..i disabled firestarter and mozilla connected to the internet just fine. I turned firestarter on. and i couldn't reach anything.. What do I have to do to get firestarter to allow me to connect to the internet via firefox
Since yesterday Firestarter has been prompting me that it is blocking external connection attempts as shown in the picture below:I'm not even going to bother covering the IP addresses because I personally don't see why I should care but as you can see, there has been loads of them attempting to connect to ports 3674 - 3675. I ran nmap 127.0.0.1 and it came back as 631 being the only one open. So then I thought maybe lsof -i would mention much more but all it shown was:
@boris:~$ cat meh COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE/OFF NODE NAME cupsd 1644 root 5u IPv6 14329 0t0 TCP localhost:ipp (LISTEN)
I have an Asus 900 laptop that I put Ubuntu 9.10 on.I know it was made by the Chinese, but why are they trying to hack my pc?I currently put FIRESTARTER a linux firewall on board you can go here to get itNow I can see everyone's IP address and find out where they are and who they are!!
I am new to Ubuntu and till now I have chosen it to be my favorite distro. I use my laptop in various networks, home, work, school. When I run firestarter the wizard does not give me the option for wireless INTERNET, only ethernet.
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:
Code: * 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?
I am running Ubuntu 10.10 I have an question about the firewall Firestarter, when checking the firewall it told me there are 9 serious incoming connections what must I do with this info. Inbound is normally blocked as standard i have also see that someone with port 1234 and 12345 have trying to attempt mine system but failed all trojan ports are fully blocked.
Running Fedora 10 and 11. Using Firestarter firewall.Does anyone know where Firestarter gets the Events which it displays?I do not find anything in /etc/firestarter/.I suspect Firestarter looks in a log file which Fedora keeps somewhere.
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?
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:
Code: 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:
Code: sudo iptables -F and then enable Gufw and set default?
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?
I gave a presentation on the Firestarter Firewall interface at my local LUG meeting tonight (another member followed with a presentation on iptables).You can download a copy of the handout from this link.
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?
A portscan reveals that port 39878 is 'open', service: 'unknown. I deny service for this port in Firestarter FW 'policy' Firestarter does not show any active connection. I am not running any apps, so how can I close this port?
After reading a lot about networking and security I decided to check the security of my own ubuntu box. So I went installing Nmap and discovered that port 139 was "open". Since I 'd read how to use ufw I created a deny rule for port 139. After a second scan with Nmap it still said that port 139 was open as shown below.
I might be misunderstanding the log but it looks like UFW is blocking connections. I want to allow all incoming and outgoing. I guess what I'm saying is that the servers on my computer will open ports but all other ports should respond with closed just like a default Ubuntu install. Trying to use UFW to monitor connections without really doing any firewalling.
I've been using Deny Hosts for a couple of years now without trouble. My router forwards SSH calls to host tock on my LAN. My router's internet hostname is michigan. I keep an svn repository on tock and access it through michigan. In this way I can update my repository when I'm at home or away.Just today, however, whenever I try any ssh to michigan, I get a closed connection and find michigan in my hosts.deny file. I delete it, make a successful connection, but then on my next attempt - there I am in the hosts.deny file again.
I've worked around it by putting michigan into my hosts.allow file, but I would really like to know what's going on. I've configured Hosts Deny to lock out IPs after three failed attempts, but it is locking out michigan after one successful connection.
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?
Mobloquer starts up at boot and before I've even opened firefox or transmission or anything, mobloquer shows that is has started blocking several outgoing connections as well as ton of incoming connections. I was wondering if the outgoing connections is normal and what's a normal amount of network activity to show up in system monitor when I'm not actively using the internet.
Where I work we have a lan, it is almost 100% windows machines except for 2 CentOS machines in which some clients connect to, via VPN. (very small network, <50 ip's used)
I would like to know if there is a way to block access from that machines to others in the network. I'm already logging traffic (with IPTraff) to see if they're accessing other machines in the network others than the ones they should connect.
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.
