Sorry guys missed the responses as I've only just checked back.

Thanks Sylvander, glad you like it. It's really a response to requests after my first simple version, that it has developed so far.

Scsijon,

Interesting idea. I'll look into the possibility of further control of the firewall program, although no promises. Laughing

It only be my setup, but the firewall settings are not remembered after reboot.. I'm using LupQ 511 and firewallstate-1.7-full..

Anyone experience this?

Here in Boxpup-431, every time I boot, the firewall icon down at bottom right in the system tray, is showing the firewall is OFF.
So I switch it on every time I get to the desktop, which then shows it is ON.

Hi all,
I made a mention in the luci thread.

I loaded the latest luci and this happened for me also on reboot.

I suspect a minor change in the startup routine or network message is causing firewallstate to report incorrectly. I suspect that the firewall is actually 'on'

Check /etc/rc.d/rc.local in geany and the last bit of text should end in 'start'. If it does then the firewall is probably running and firewallstate is reporting incorrectly. I can see it is doing that on my system.

Not much time available but I will look into it.

I just updated the post to version 1.8. there is no need to download if you are using Lucid 5.2 as it is the same.

I've also uploaded the 1.8 C source code

Hi tasmod I'm finally introducing firewallstate into 2.14X, The only thing if possible I would like to see is a large reduction of task on the right click menu, most of those extra's aren't needed and Psync isn't even included, I did try getting Psync going by using 5.2 parts, but I already have a little script that sets the time already that playdayz introduced into upup # hwclock --hctosys --localtime
works for me Smile we also have the latest network monitor that has the X on the taskbar icon if it isn't connected, if you click that it brings up the network manager, etc.
Here how I would like to see it, if possible, I did try to compile the sources but they didn't do anything. what compiling command routine do you use? I tried
gcc `pkg-config --cflags --libs gtk+-2.0` -o "firewallstate-1.8.c" "firewallstate-1.8.c"
but no bin was made. Thanks very much for this great and well needed app.

You never would think, a simple thing as, control of the firewall, would turn into a must have item.
This program has become a must have option.
Thanks for your willingness to make changes.
It just gets better and better!

PostPosted: Wed 15 Jun 2011, 16:45    Post subject: Does FireWallState-1.9 have an log feature?  

I have recently found that this tool has an piece of VERY useful information. It contains private and public IP information on its right-click menu from the taskbar.

Does the tool provide a, hopefully time-stamped, log (or is there an option somewhere) of the Public IP addresses? I want to follow the IP changes that are made by my ISP during the course of the day. This could allow me to log and see internet up and down times when they occur.

Thanks in advance.

Not really the remit for Firewallstate.

I would say a simple script would do the job for you though.

The IP is derived from the net and is saved in the tmp folder under the name ipis.txt. This is of course cleared each time the system is shut down.

Look in the /usr/local/firewallstate folder for ipwget script which shows the two net addresses that return your own external address to you.
It should be fairly straightforward to save this to a standard text file in other than the tmp folder.

Thanks Tasmod.

Can you tell me how often this Information Page is updated?. I'm not sure if I need to do something to have it (Public IP) be current? Found this out after monitoring the "Information" for a day.

Thank in advance for this answer
