    Which updates do you think caused this? In the repos we often don't keep history so it is not always easy to downgrade.

  • I don't know RAID very well, I'm away from home and my only RAID machine is powered off so I can't have a look. I would use commands like:to see how things are set up. Also mdadm has a some commands to help. It is a bit more complicated if you are using the LVM on top of RAID.

  • The Storage Manager does not work properly for RAID, so disregard what you are seeing. The command line is probably better. There is also quite a lot of information in the HowTo's.

    BTW, you only need an SSD for a squid cache if you have a fast line, perhaps > 50 Mb/s, and, even then, if you have a fast line, you might as well turn the squid cache off. Personally I'd have installed onto SSD then put things like flexshares onto RAID (and perhaps backup /etc there as well).

    It should work if you are using /24 subnets on your LAN NIC's and if your router is just being used as a switch (WAN port disconnected) and DHCP disabled.

    Cloudflare is fine for PiHole.

    You will find it hard to get a router with more ports. Just use a switch - either 5 port, 8 port or more. They are much cheaper than routers. You can still use your router for more ports and WiFi.

    Please see the Windows Networking app documentation and a link in it about joining a Windows Workstation to a Samba Domain. Have you done the required registry changes and set the permissions correctly?

    No diagram attached.

    I don't understand how you may have set this up with custom firewall rules. The way I would have set it up with just 2 NICs is to put PiHole on the LAN with a static IP. Then in ClearOS you have a couple of choices:
    1 - In the ClearOS DHCP server settings put the DNS as PiHole. You could also do a custom redirect rule on the INPUT chain redirecting TCP:53 and UDP:53 to PiHole
    2 - In the IP Settings screen set a manual DNS of PiHole. If you do this, PiHole must not use ClearOS as its upstream resolver. It must go directly to the internet.

    I'd possibly prefer 2 as you can still then use the ClearOS DNS screen to set local names.

    This setup would work as well with 3 NICs with the third one being set as a LAN NIC as well. The two LAN NICs have to be on different subnets and PiHole muse be configured with a static IP on its subnet.

    Nick Howitt replied to a discussion, Attack Detector Update

    There is now another update to the Attack Detector app which adds an option to whitelist your LANs. This can be useful when, for example, setting up e-mail packages which often assume the full e-mail address is the username and you get banned when trying to set the user up. Or if you are doing some testing on your LAN.

    As before, you can upgrade with:Note this will not be released next week as I'll be on holiday.

    If enabled, if you are in gateway mode, any LAN (so not HotLAN or DMZ) will be whitelisted as will any subnet covered by static routes using the EXTRALANS parameter in /etc/clearos/network.conf.

  • Do the logs show anything? You can turn on the webconfig debug log:The trigger the error. Then turn off the webconfig debug log by deleting or renaming /var/log/webconfig/debug.log.

    After that, have a look in /var/log/webconfig/debug.log for any obvious error. There are always a few but something may jump out. Don't leave debugging enabled as it will generate huge logs.

    Re: Why web system eject me to the login page with every click?

    I have never heard of anything like this. Are you logged in as the root user in the webconfig?
