Installation and Upgrades / Re: need help firewall and Squid
« on: December 01, 2008, 04:07:18 pm »
Thanks all,
     I am using DD-WRT until I get this eBox setup.  It has eth0-4, I installed a 4 port NIC so that I could put the kids computers and Mine in separate networks.
Is there a way to setup squid on a per interface/NIC basis like DHCP?

Hi all, I have 4 kids on a bunch of different computers spread out all over the house.  I need to  set up some quite restrictive rules about which sites that they can conned to.  I see no way to access the Squid module that my reading said handled most of the web filtering.  I'd love to be able to set up filtering for them in two sets of rules, one for during school, and one for after school.  Also, I'd like to have my wifes and my systems have free range of the INTERNET.

Please give me specific instructions, as I have not  been on a UNIX like  system since the early 90's
I do have a SSH program on my workstation so I can login to the box.  but only remember a very few of the command line commands.

probably an easy quesion for you guys to answer but how do I monitor the DHCP clients that have gotten addresses form my ebox?
also how do I deal with laptops that have one host name and connect sometimes with a wired connection and sometimes via one of my APs?  the problem is that they have two MAC's and one name.

My eBox has eth0-eth4.  I use eth0 as the wan connection and that will be a DHCP Client to my ISP.
Eth1 ( is my normal home domain, and eth2 ( is my DMZ where I will be putting some other servers.
eth3 and eth4 will be used for testing. 192.168.3 & 4 respectively.

Also how do I tell the DHCP clients that they need to get NTP from the eBox

Also How do I tell the DHCP Clients to go to eBox for DNS and as a network gateway as well.

I sorta expect that when I install the eBox as the gateway and configure eth0 as external that it will handle the DNS and gateway issues automatically by setting those values in the respective DHCP Server as 192.168.x.1.  Am I wrong?

I fixed the Ping issue, Really stupid, windows firewalls.....

The eBox live CD system still won't respond on web interface except to the http://Https://localhost/summary/index Please help

If I have a network of 92.168.1.x and a Net mask of then they would be in CIDR Notation, RIGHT?

Installation and Upgrades / Probem with eBox live CD test installation

     I did a lot of research and decided to try eBox as my first project.

     The CD boots and comes up to the https://localhost/summary/index on the attached monitor.  I can ping the box but it can't ping anything else on the network but the two DD-wrt routers in the house.  I have not tried to ping outside of the house.

      I can not get the https://ipaddr/eBox to respond.

     I most likely did something really stupid.
please help, I don't know UNIX so all of your help is really appreciated.
