New eBox 1.3.10 installer available!
« on: November 26, 2009, 05:36:44 pm »
Hi fellow eBox users,

We are glad to announce the release of our first installer for the 1.3 development branch.

The main new features of this version are:

- PPPoE support
- RADIUS module
- Webmail (roundcube) module

And many other minor improvements and bugfixes!

You can download it at: http://www.ebox-platform.com/download/beta

Remember that this is beta software and it is not intended for production use.

All these features and much more will be available in the next 1.4 stable version. In the meanwhile, you can help us starting to test the 1.3 version.

Your feedback is really welcome.

Is it ready to be installed? Can I upgrade from my just-tonight installed 1.2.1 version?

What do you mean with "is it ready to be installed"?

As the announce says: "Remember that this is beta software and it is not intended for production use."

So I would say that you should install it only test machines. Regarding the upgrade, there is no guarantee of success. But if you want to help us testing it, go ahead! ;)

That's right, dahdi-modules is only on the CD, we'll try to fix it soon and upload it to the ppa compiled for a newer version of the kernel.

But I don't know why the installer can't find your cd-rom. After the first stage of the installation the cd-rom is automatically ejected. When the installer asks you for it, you should insert it again. (usually it asks for it twice). Do you get any error? Are you using a real machine or a virtual one?

I just wasn't paying attention much. I think I'm good for now. Would having this in my sources.list work to help for testing or is that for 1.2 testing?

## eBox TESTING ##
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ebox-unstable/ppa/ubuntu hardy main

I haven't had much of an issue testing eBox so far since there's a good enough amount of testing so far, but I'm still curious regardless. I want to wait for 1.4, but all the new features being implemented seem so cool.

That url is obsolete (it was for eBox 1.1), the good one is the following:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ebox/1.3/ubuntu hardy main

## eBox REQUIRED ##
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ebox/ubuntu hardy main
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ebox/1.2/ubuntu hardy main

## eBox TESTING ##
# deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ebox/1.3/ubuntu hardy main

More like that and uncomment the testing one to test it? What about 1.4? Is there a testing of 1.4? From what I remember, 1.3 is only needed if you want multiple machines running eBox such as a webserver etc somewhere else and your router function in eBox to be the main machine.

"deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ebox/ubuntu hardy main" is the 1.0 repository, you can also remove it

Regarding the doubts on 1.3 and 1.4, have a look at this: http://trac.ebox-platform.com/wiki/Document/Development/Standards/Versioning

And before starting using 1.3 read this:

There are known issues with virtualbox that may be similar in vmware. In virtualbox you need to unmount the iso just after the first stage of the installation finishes, and mount it again when the second stage asks you for it.

Ok no problem. I'll just wait for 1.4. Seems like eBox is going the Linux kernel route and odd numbers are beta builds.

Hi fellow eBox users,

We are glad to announce the release of our first installer for the 1.3 development branch.

The main new features of this version are:

- PPPoE support
- RADIUS module
- Webmail (roundcube) module


In the eBox-gateway version 1.2 ask "eth1 inet static", enter address
in web-interface eBox pointing out eth1 - external
I picked up PPPOE command "sudo pppoeconf eth1"
Get from Internet Service Provider with "gray" IP address
in web-interface eBox appears ppp0
pointing out ppp0 - external
turn on proxy transparent

In describing eBox version 1.3 officially supports PPPOE and master / slave LDAP
decided to test - to raise ppp0 is not possible
pppoe can be lifted only at the physical interface eth1

Please refine module support PPPOE
and add support module to connect to a PPTP vpn server provider
for "real" IP from my ISP on my web server

What do you mean? Are you using eBox 1.3.10? You have to select PPPoE as the method for the eth1 interface and enter the proper username and password. ppp0 should be raised when saving changes. If that doesn't work please paste here the output of the "plog" command to see if there is any error.

To connect to the server provider in web-interface eBox
ask "eth1 inet static", enter the address and network
pointing out eth1 - external
To connect to the internet via PPPOE to raise ppp0, enter the login and password, specify ppp0 - external
Manually PPPOE rises, but in the web-interface eBox ppp0 does not appear
При любых дальнейших действиях или перезагрузке сервера из /etc/network/interfaces вся информация о ppp0 удаляется
using 1.3.10-1
