Re: Mount exFAT on Bubba

May require some additional investigation. File name in the original post seems to indicate that this is a read-only implementation and may therefore not be a breach of patent. The wiki that is referred to names some patents that are related to specific functions provided by exFat; does the open sou...

Re: WD caviar 1TB MTBF, any clues?

It is actually multiple customers and I'm not really maintaining their network but providing an application that counts as mission-critical in most cases. All of these customers are aware of the fact that they need to protect their data and they all use RAID configurations. What they regularly don't...

Re: Attaching an "outsourced" NAS

You *might* be able to tweak whatever you want to use and make it work with just the B3 I can't help you with all of it because I simply have no need for anything I'm not already using and am lacking the options to test all the other stuff. What I'm using is an ipsec net-net connection using the kli...

I don't recall saying amusing and you can trust me that being the one to tell a customer that his backups are bad as well is absolutely no fun at all. :evil:

Re: B2 won't accept DHCP Offer in rescue mode

I'm thinking this may be related to an issue I had today when my cable modem dropped out (I'm actually receiving a public IP on the WAN interface through this). It works after a full reset of all the networking components, but I found that the bubba firewall is missing a critical statement to be abl...

Shorewall

Seeing the number of questions on firewalling and VPN I've been thinking that it might be a good idea to have some more advanced firewall configuration available. It wouldn't have to be available through the web interface though; it would probably pose to be too difficult to implement the possibilit...

Re: WD caviar 1TB MTBF, any clues?

Not to piss in anyone's cheerios but... MTBF is completely irrelevant if you only have a single drive, as you know nothing of the spread around the mean. The number is meant for data centers. Seconded... There may be something to consider though if you've enabled mirroring. It's kind of a stupid th...

Re: Attaching an "outsourced" NAS

There's no forwarding involved if you host NAS functionality on the B3, so these lines would not apply. Be aware that you need to be able to route both ways in all circumstances. An example: You send a valentine card and inside you wrote "I've been your secret admirer for years". Of course you did n...

Re: Help needed with firewall

I'm somewhat confused about that. :? Since wireless connects to the B3 through br0 interface, the rule is already set to ACCEPT. The change inflicted by setting the policy for INPUT to ACCEPT is that it also allows full access to the B3 itself from the WAN (eth0) interface. There should not be any n...

Re: Make Strongswan start on a b3

FWIW I found the Netkey stack too unstable anyway and turned to Klips, which I also find easier to manage because it adds an ipsec0 interface. Yes you still need the kernel source, but since building the Klips module doesn't require to build all the other kernel related stuff as well you're done a l...

Re: Help needed with firewall

On the B3 the interfaces wlan0 and eth1 are paired in a bridge: br0.

Re: No http access to b3 from outside

Most likely the WAN address on the B3 was offered a new IP by your router's DHCP which then failed to also flush and reload the forwarding rules. I'm guessing it would have been sufficient to pull the power from the router and reconnect it after 10-15 seconds.

Re: Disable firewall?

The web server use the wan so thats fine but samba and access to the bubba web interface uses the LAN-port.. That is actually not a firewall issue but a deliberate configuration (tweak) in these services. You can verify by running `netstat -an` that the samba protocols (port 139 and 445) are most l...

Re: Disable firewall?

Cant do that because the voIP-router has 100 Mbit and my internet speed is 200 MBit :( Now why didn't you say that before? Okay then. Let's work back from this: That could work. But if I uses the bubba the other way around as I tested it with the WAN-side on my network and LAN-side to the voIP. Is ...
