Translated: In case you knew how to configure Suse 8, i'll get Suse 8
running on our firewall. ;)
>>Do I need to apply a kernel patch?
>Yep, download as above. The extra rules comes here in SuSEfirewall 2
Okay, I used Suse 8 free s/wan since it was in a version that also way
at the site you mentioned, and installed the free s/wan kernel module
that Suse provides.
Okay, the silly thing is that I don't have such an device in /dev/etc. I
should probably check my free s/wan configuration?
I checked that and it does seem to be the same 2.1-er-version that comes
with Suse 8.
Line 306 of the executable scans for FW_DEV_IPSEC, but does expect a
"yes" instead of a device?
echo " $FW_DEV_EXT $FW_DEV_DMZ $FW_DEV_INT " | grep -q ipsec &&
from line 537 it also tests for FW_DEV_IPSEC
for i in /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/*; do
echo 0 > $i/accept_redirects 2> /dev/null
echo 0 > $i/accept_source_route 2> /dev/null
test -z "$FW_DEV_IPSEC" && echo 1 > $i/rp_filter 2> /dev/null
echo 0 > $i/mc_forwarding 2> /dev/null
As to your configuration, you write "extra rules", so I understand to
append them. I just wanted to remark that there do not seem to be some
kind of defaults for ipsec - rule 19 is about
# Allow (or don't) ICMP echo pings on either the firewall or the dmz from
# the internet? The internet option is for allowing the DMZ and the internal
# network to ping the internet.
and Rule 20 is "Allow (or don't) ICMP time-to-live-exceeded to be send
from your firewall."
>Take a look at rule 21. Seems to be one answer on your questions!
Actually it does, yes, and thanks.
