Hello, tasmod Smile!

Really like this application of yours; seen it/used it in many recent pups, where it's included by default.

I cannot find the sources for ver. 2.0 of the compiled file /usr/local/firewallstate/firewallstate, perhaps I missed the location of the sources by only reading this first page of the thread .........

Are the sources available for downloading somewhere?

Cheers Smile/ MHHP

MHP,

Sorry missed your post.

I'm almost sure that the version 1.8 source was very close to v2.0 but to be sure I uploaded version 2.0 source.

Note that there are other files called but they are annotated in the source and available in the pet. They are gtk scripts that can be read in Geany etc.

Version 2.1 posted.

Information window now updates when called. (So external IP report is correct)

I was asked why the change.

Well, on startup firewallstate retrieves the external IP address and the internal LAN IP. Then stops accessing after placing them in /tmp, this saves further processing.

On a reboot this information is refreshed, no problem, the information is correct.
However, if, as I discovered later, your router drops out and then re-syncs it obtains a new external IP but your system is still running and hasn't rebooted, only your router.
Firewallstate IP checking is not re-run, so the information isn't updated and is incorrect.

I therefore added a call when the right click menu item 'Information' is clicked, to re-run the IP scripts again, thus refreshing the information.

Funny how sometimes an event doesn't take place for quite a while to show up a 'bug' Laughing

Hi Tasmod

For your info I have just installed the version 2.1 PET in Racy 522.

No problems with the installation and on reboot the tray icon appears and everything works fine on the right click.

Many thanks for your efforts, this is a really useful PET for Puppies like Racy that don't have any firewall status indication.

For that reason I opted for a static icon on my tray instead of a running process...with buttons for turning the firewall off/on.

Hello,
... I like this little and very useful program...
Question: why is it only in English? Shocked
I already localized simple external firewallstate-2.1 scripts (for Toutou Linux, French version of Puppy)... could modify chains directly inside source files then compiling, but I think it would be lost time. The best indeed should be a gettext localized main script to get the right click menu translated.
Now that Barry is seriously working for Puppy to be "deeply" localized, should not this (pleeeeeease!), be done systematically from the beginning by programs conceptors? Wink

Cordialement.

Hello,
...Great! Very Happy
It should not be so difficult (?)!
Just a suggestion: Inside the right-click menu, are Psync, Date and time and Internet connexion wizard really convenient here? These have, by all appearances, directly nothing to do with the Firewall settings and seem to make double-use with some other applets?

Cordialement!

Does anyone know if there is a version that works with Puppy-412 and where I can geta hold of it.

I know 412 is out of date but I like it. So please don't give me a hard time.

PostPosted: Sun 09 Sep 2012, 16:29    Post subject: i18n for firewallstate  

I am working on Russian version of Slacko so I have made i18n-ed firewallstate. Firewallgtk can be translated using MoManager, the pot-file for binary firewallstate is in /usr/share/doc/nls/firewallstate. I also put Russian mo-files in /usr/share/locale/ru/LC_MESSAGES.
File /usr/share/applications/firewallstate.desktop also has 'Name[ru]' line for Russian. But I don't understand what should it point to. In original it points to directory.
I have also changed line for locale detection:
Code:
locale | grep 'LANG=' | cut -d '=' -f2

I tried to close all the ports in the firewall supplied on the 5.6 Distro but I flunking the shields up port tests on GRC.com Is there something I should be doing? I tried custom and selected all ports.

The Information display for the firewall seems to have a bug. I should learn how to post a screen shot but in short this is what I get.

Your external IP is _________ blank space.
PC network address 127.0.0.1

I have good IP addresses (connections.) I checked with iw and ifconfig and they were in th 10.0.0.x range (Which was the router I was trying to connect to. I have another machine (Attached to a different router) and the firewall does the same thing. This is a tower (a gateway 831GM)it connecting ok to the standard 192.168.x.x. IP range My Wife's laptop laptop is running slacko 5.5 on it with the same issues *another T60 Thinkpad.

I hope this is helpful I really appreciate the effort so many of you put in for such an amazing system.

Hi James,

The problem of the blank IP is quite simple.

The addresses you quote are internal router addresses.

Firewallstate IP information uses an external site to send back the External IP info. On the "other side" of the router, your ISP connection.
