Subject description: Update firewall
 

As pointed out by bigpup in:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=925646#925646

old puppies need an updated firewall. In wary the firewall_ng packaged from woof-ce-testing of few days ago works after installing:

http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/pet_packages-wary5/gtkdialog4-246-w5.pet

In puppy 4.31 and lucid I have a little tweaked the firewall of thar 6.0.5 puppy and it works after installing:

http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-common/gtkdialog4-0.8.3-i486.pet

I have setup it to run every time you restart x. firewall_ng-p4.pet works also in lucid.

Hi watchdog, I'm trying Firewall_ng-p4 on Lucid Puppy Revitalized as 5.2.8.7, works well but I wonder why to run every time you restart x and not just do it once ?

Thanks for your work.

Regards

firewall_ng-p4.pet, when installed in puppy4, is not the best solution and is not perfectly compatible with the built-in firewall. You have to run the built-in firewall (script rc.firewall in /etc/rc.d) before running the mine from tahr (script rc.firewall in /etc/init.d). There are also shield missing icons which you can take from lucid (/usr/share/pixmaps/puppy/*). I am not a programmer and the package needs to be tweaked more by more skilled guys. I found that solution to be sure the new firewall is running and I'm using it in this manner in puppy 4.31. In lucid it betterly works: no missing icons and, if I well remember, there is firewall-state (missing in puppy4).

Thanks for the reply watchdog, I'll move the symlink to /usr/sbin/firewall_ng from Startup folder to my-applications/bin so I can use it when I need.

Cheers. Smile

@watchdog
I'm running both the recently updated version of lucid s2 and wary 5.5 and have just installed the packages in your first post on my old Toshiba laptop (800MHz 320MB). Thanks for these and helping to keep old machines going safely.

Can I just double check that the above is the case for both wary and lucid.

Regards,

Ken.
