Hey,

I just setup an untangle box at home.
It is acting as my router/security and what not.
I have it running on an old box, nothing special but it seems to be doing the trick

I am still working on the security side of things. I am working on the firewall currently trying to get it to properly protect my network.

Good to see people supporting this software though - its awesome


Cheers
For Fun

OK going to Untangle as a firewall. I don't need any of the site blocking,record keeping features. I just want to better protect my home hosted (hosted by Apache on a Dell Dimension running XP on static IP's) web site. Here is how things are currently setup (and work quite well but not so well protected).

Internet>>>>ActionTech1000 Modem>>>>TrendNet switch>>>>Dell with Apache and web site, networked with the Dell is a assembled AMD machine (I work on my web pages on the assembled machine and access my htdocs folder on the server and put my pages in htdocs,everything works fine.

My ActionTech1000 modem is configured to either its self to hand out IP's or it instructs the ISP to hand out the static IP's I bought. In the "select IP type" of the modem setup I select "block of static IP's". I have 8 static IP's one is reserved for the modem,one is my gateway address and one is called "Reserved Broadcast' (I have no idea what this is).

I leave Internet Protocol TCP/IP (inside of the OS on each machine) set to "Obtain an IP address automaticaly along with Obtain DNS server address automaticaly.

When I do an "ipconfig" of either machine on the internal network (the web server and the asssembled rig) I see that one of my 5 left over static IP's are assigned to each of the 2 rigs. Of course the ethernet switch is just a switch and does not get an address.

So after all this how is Untangle going to work in my setup? I would think the Untangle box will get one of the three left over IP's? perhaps? I believe the proper place for the Untangle box is after the modem but before the switch.

Will I still leave my Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties set to "automatic" as they were before the Untangle box was put in after the modem but before the ethernet switch?

Will port forwarding have to be enabled inside of Untangle? I wonder how Untangle will affect how I have Filezilla setup.

All I want out of Untangle is it to act as a hardware firewall, any other features would just be a blessing.

So there you have it men, my hardware for Untangle has not arrived yet (e5200 2gb with 2 extra NIC's in the PCI slots) so I am still in a planning stage. If anyone sees a problem it would be most appreciated if you point it out, I will humbily accept any direction. My site is educational (my education) and it is not at all critical for it to always be up. This is simply a configuration and techniques learning experience for me.

Modem -> Router -> Untangle -> Switch would be the easiest, unless wanting to use untangle as a router aswell.


Just 1 cable from the router into an NIC, and then another from the switch, and a 3rd for DMZ which is obviously optional.


Port forwarding will still be handled by your router, it should change nothing to your existing network's setup.


EDIT: Oh, you got no router. Yeah Untangle can handle port forwarding and DHCP if you like.

Marma, You have laid to rest my fears that either Untangle could not be used as a firewall of the hardware type and that setup would be exotic and complicated. I take your instructions as approval to proceede. +rep.

One last thing, as you may know Untangle does offer customer support. I believe it's 25.00 per month, I have no details on how complex your questions to Untangle customer support can be, and how many a month you are allowed.

Should my plan be to give setup my best shot on my own ("on my own" would include asking OCN Untangle Club for help) or subscribe for a month or so?

I was really worried Untangle could not be set up in a way to help with site protection due to the way my IP's are handed out.

I am taking this type of set up (somewhat advanced for me at this time) one step at a time and I use it to build for the future, which is using more complicated equipment and techniques.

Add me please. Happy Untangle user here.

Running on a dedicated AMD Athlon 800, 768 MB RAM, Shuttle AK12 v1.1 motherboard. Single 100Mb/s full duplex adapter till I buy a second one. Serving up to 7 computers simultaneously.

CPU usage hasn't gone past 2% and there's about 200MB RAM free. For anyone interested, after installing many services the installation still takes up about 1.5GB of hard disk space. On my (ancient) configuration it takes about 7 minutes to boot or so; but who cares? Re-router mode seems to be affecting pings although browsing is smooth and download speeds remain unchanged for my crappy DSL.

All the filters and services are working great; all I need to do is buy a new fan cause this thing's fan is *noisy*.

Yeah, it does take forever to boot... but it's worth it. With my Motorola router my ping is like 70 in games, with untangle it's 35-40.

Scratch that 7 minute boot. It just took the thing 30 minutes to boot and now it's not even working My modem/router really doesn't like playing with it.
Edit: I got it up and running again.

Awesome, just setup Untangle for protecting my Senior Project Server, and it works great.

I had to set it up in a VM as a Virtual Appliance, gave it 2 NIC's, both physical NIC's, and used one for incoming, and one for outgoing.

I did run into an issue or two; it had to manually update Gcc, but other then that it went in pretty nicely.

Before I install this is there a web gui I can access this from? I will be putting a faceless computer between my modem and router but the computer will eventually have no monitor, keyboard, or mouse when finally setup. It will then be put in an area that I will not be to install these things easily (behind a couch).

I hope so I will need to clear this with my roommate (he should be fine with it he sells IT anyway) but I think this will help us having a wii, 360, ps3, desktop computer, and two laptops.

This will be all on my System labeled Untangle Server. It sounds like any decent HDD will do the trick I have an old 36gb Raptor doing nothing that I would like to use. Ok?
