Smile A lot of people will be very happy with this. I do nothing more than use the firewall wizard and I think my router has a firewall too.

What added facilities does this offer? What sort of situation is this a good idea for? I am asking because I know very little about firewalls. When I was still using Windows, the percentage of time (I estimate 30%) was spent on running security progs. The ones I remember are AVG, Spybot etc but there were many more . . .

Note : The HTML live firewall statistics render better in Opera than in Firefox. This is because firefox ignores the spaces in the text file even when using the <pre> tag

FireLog is good for anyone using the Puppy Linux firewall or anyone who wants to use the Puppy Linux firewall.

It provides the following :

- Easy way to make sure your firewall is up (options : j, k & L)
- Easy way to start / stop the firewall (options : a, b)
- Easy way to view firewall statistics in realtime (options : k & L)
- Easy way to save the firewall settings (options: f,g)
- Easy way to restore the firewall settings (option: i)
- Easy way to view active network connections (options: m, n and the browser based live stats)
- Easy way to add/delete firewall rules & change policies (option : e)

Like a lot of linux programs anything FireLog does can be done by you via the command line - this just makes it easier and prettier Smile

I think this will be a great addition to the puppy family but I am a real newbie on firewall admin (and most things Linux).

I installed FireLog on Puppy 109CE and Puppy 212. FireLog on Puppy 109CE seemed to install and Pupget indicates that it is installed but I see only a flash of a black window and nothing more when I attempt to run it. However, FireLog seems to run great on the 212 install.

The ShieldsUp site indicates that my 212 is responding to pings .... how do I turn this function off?

Thanks,

KJ

Anytime you run a program and all you get is a black window flash it most likely means the program created an error.

Try to run FireLog from the command line to see what the error is - I`ll get back to you on the other stuff later.

Can it do Internet connection sharing? (using 2 LAN cards, that is)

Tried that, firefox still breaks it. There is a section in firelog.sed that can be uncommented which will add underscores instead of spaces to produce proper spacing on "broken" browsers.

Currently there aren't any ICS features built in, sorry.

NoobieDoobieDo

When I fired up Puppy 109CE this evening and tried FireLog from the dotpup icon I saw the black screen flash again. When I ROX to /usr/local/firelog and type "sh firelog" in the xterm window, fireLog starts logging in my browser window but I do not get the script window with your other options. I am not a console person .... perhaps I am not useing the proper commands. I see no errors listed just the following in my xterm window.

# sh firelog

=============================================
| Trying to load default browser with file |
| /usr/local/firelog/firelog.html |
=============================================
| Starting statistics gathering loop |
=============================================
| Press CTRL + C to exit. |
=============================================

Happy New Year,

I also get this error message when I'm in Puppy 109CE. Hope that this helps.


# sh firelog.sh
firelog.sh: 65: function: not found
firelog.sh: 95: Syntax error: "}" unexpected

PostPosted: Mon 01 Jan 2007, 09:37    Post_subject: Internet Connection Sharing  

I got excited when I saw this because internet connection sharing with a firewall feature built in would be a godsend, its a major feature that puppy is lacking (the built in firewall wizard seems to have a bug) that would put a lot of older pcs to use as useable firewall computers that would give many windoze users their first taste of Linux. Its been requested time and time again and would be very simple to implement by someone with just a minimal amount of networking knowledge.

Please Please Please Lobster, make it do this too in the next version!!!!

Heres something that may help

This is what I get in the xterm window opened n the FireLog folder

# sh firelog.sh
firelog.sh: 65: function: not found
firelog.sh: 95: Syntax error: "}" unexpected
#

When I use 'xrun commandline' with directory set as '/usr/local/firelog' and 'command' as 'sh firelog.sh' I see no output to the screen


I tried a fresh installed dotpup on a clean Puppy 109CE booted direct from the CD (no Pup001) and got the same behaviors as listed above.

109CE came with Firefox 1.5.0.3 as default browser ....

May 2007 be kind to you and yours

Hi...

I don't know enough about bash/linux scripting to understand the problem.

Line 65 is the begining of a function in the program. Each function in the program looks like this :

function thing_name {
code stuff
}

So I'm unsure as to why older versions of puppy are not able to understand the "function" operator.

Also .. line 95 is merely the end of the function - nothing special there ....

Sorry i can't be of more help . Maybe someone who understands puppy and bash scripting better can find an easy work around for this. Later on I`ll try to DL your version of puppy linux and play with it to see if I can get it to work..

Best wishes
