Just wanted to say thank you. Nick, your one line was the fix, started working as soon as that line was in. We also followed your recommendation and removed the state types.
Apologies for the months delay, but as this is a production system, we don't get many time windows to do testing. Now the firewall rules and VPNs are sorted will be on to the AD integration.
Suggestions all very much appreciated.
I currently have a firewall running on 6.8 that only allows smtp communication from our LAN exchange server (10.1.5.32) to our mail host (Fuse Mail IP range), and from Fuse Mail to the Exchange server.
The working rules on 6.8:
The rules created on the 7.2 system (changed eth5 to ens160):
I don't seem to be able to receive mail, so it is like the rules aren't working - has the syntax changed more than just the LAN ethernet name (it looks like the ppp0 has the same name).
I tried specifying our our external IP using the below, but didn't make a difference:
any guidance would be much appreciated.
I haven't installed the IPSEC VPN on 7.2 before, but the market place (or yum from CL) seems to indicate that the package installs successfully, however the gui returns an error suggesting that it is not running. (I'm not with access to the 7.2 system at the moment, so can't post the exact error message, but will when I next have a look). Has anyone else found that the gui doesn't load, or that something simple such as a service start is required?
Sorry I can't provide any more detail such as the service status at the moment.
Update - I had another hour with the Clear Box this weekend, but didn't get much further.
1) Booted with the CF card and SSD containing the installed image - flashing cursor with no activity. No GRUB menu on escape key from power on (presumably if GRUB was fully installed on the SSD this should have come up).
2) Changed BIOS boot order to CF expecting to see the installation screen - booted to GRUB rescue command line
3) Wiped SSD partitions on other PC in hope that CF would view as new install - same GRUB rescue command line
4) Removed SSD to leave only CF card - GRUB rescue command line with error about missing volume.
AFAIK I haven't changed any of the files on the CF card, therefore I expected it to behave like an installation CD, and boot from this (as it presumably did on the first boot).
If anyone could provide me with some pointers / things to try it would be much appreciated.
I installed a new SSD and compact flash card with the 7.2 image (supplied by Clear) into our existing Clear Box 300. The installer loaded and I selected 'full install'. The graphical installer completed and rebooted. On the reboot the system presents a back screen with a white flashing cursor and nothing more.
My thoughts are do do re-install, this time selecting the 'custom' install option and see if there was anything I could adjust like graphics resolution (perhaps to start with getting a CL)?
Has anyone experienced a similar issue? or if they could provide a pointer to get me started it would be much appreciated.
Hi Drew, not sure of your wimax unit, but I know that some cable company modes work with a single registered MAC, and it could be that if your laptop was 'setup' you may need to spoof that MAC onto the WAN of your COS. It might also be worth re-starting your wimax once the COS is plugged in, as it may have allocated the address to your laptop, and not want to give out another.
I thought I would restart squid, but the service didn't respond to the stop command so I used kill -9 and then started it.
It now appears to be working as expected. I will keep monitoring it for a few days to confirm.
