PostPosted: Tue 05 Jul 2005, 16:20    Post_subject:  Morizot firewall typo  

in my Morizot fw script in /etc/rc.d:

$IPT -P FORWARD DROrouter onP

should be:

$IPT -P FORWARD DROP

the error is not in the fw i actually use (a Morizot script in my-applications/bin)

i don't know if the error is in the Puppy iso, or if it's just on my machine

if it's on the Puppy iso, it probably should be fixed
though it doesn't change the functioning of the firewall (FORWARDING is still set to DROP)

The Morizot firewall seems to make no noticeable difference to the speed of functioning?

Should it be set to on by default?

a simple standalone firewall is probably adequate for most Puppys ... it shouldn't slow down your internet connection

a firewall does need configuring though

for example, the net interface using ethernet cards is usually eth0 (it might be eth1) ... the net interface for dialup and pppoe is ppp0 (or maybe ppp1)

you might have a static or a dynamic address

you might have internet sharing set up ... or not

the Morizot script could be modified to automatically detect if your interface is eth0 or ppp0 ... but if it didn't work perfectly, your internet access would be blocked

some programs need ports to be opened (servers, ssh, p2p apps like bit torrent)

Puppy should be fairly safe without a firewall anyway

here's an automatic firewall script ... it requires iproute though:

I've been using Puppy (1.0.3, from CD) for about a month now without a firewall. I have a cable internet connection so I should be a prime target, but so far nothing bad has happened.

(I should say that I turn my computer off when I'm not using it.)

I don't know how that is occurring. The bug isn't in the Morizot files in Unleashed.

if it isn't in the Puppy file, then it probably got corrupted on my machine ... maybe while editing it or something
