Untangle Club - Page 14

post #131 of 207
Quick question, and I feel that I might get the answers I seek here. I am putting this on a p4 rig and I had two questions.

Is there a remote management feature on Untangle, so that I can just have a power cable and two ethernet cables in it(after I get it installed of course) and not have a dedicated monitor, keyboard and mouse taking up space?

I have a repeater bridge set up from my wrt350n DD-WRT Linsys router to my wrt54g DD-WRT linksys router with DHCP turned on on the 350n and off on the 54g, when I disable DHCP on the 350n while installing Untangle(or by just having DHCP on the Untange rig and not on the router), will that mess up my repeater bridge?

thanks in advance for your help.

Once you initially set it up you can do everything through the web client by entering the ip address in your browser.
I literally just started playing with it a few hours ago but I am using a VM on win 7.

Due to the wiring scheme in my house, my main has to be wireless, and the furthest pc from the router at that. So I think that would not work well. I just picked up two dell comps from a friend, who got a bunch of them from a school that was getting rid of them. They are only missing HD's and ram, which isn't bad. One is a p4 3.0ghz and the other one is a Pentium dual core at 2.8. they both have pci x16 and x1 slots, so they should be prime candidates to try this on.

So how long does it take to boot on a p4?
Cause I gave it 2 cores and it would take forever on my VM.

I want to try another one of these firewall distros very interesting, not sure which though...

My P4 3ghz w/ 1GB of ram took like 15minutes to boot everytime. I eventually got fed up with it hours after I built the machine.

Untangle is meant for small businesses and security. It has the crysis of system requirements compared to other firewall distros that only need a P2 class CPU w/ 32mb of ram. It does have the best security and features a free firewall distro can offer, but for home use there are much better solutions.

Not using it for home.

Going to set it up for a small business but before I mess with it over there rather learn it here on a VM. The free version of Untangle has basically everything I want.

Mine takes 10-15 min to boot, and i have it on a pentium dual core ~2 Ghz with 2 GB of ram in an old asus maximus extreme. It really helps torrenting speeds when you let your torrent app make unlimited connections, a regular router would bog down terribly this one does it at 25% cpu usage lol.

I'm a huge untangle fan and i wish my business customers would realize the value and pay for me to install them lol.

Hey guys, just got it set up on a box,
I enabled the dhcp server, and have 1 ethernet connected to my rig which goes through my wireless via internet connection sharing. The other ethernet is connected to a switch and then to my spare pc. Thing is, the spare pc wont connect to the internet, I can run ipconfig /renew but it says something about there being no DHCP servers.. any ideas?

well to be fair my P3 w/ 256mb of ram handles almost unlimited connections as well, i have it set to 10k but i doubt it's using that many connections. haven't monitored the CPU usage but i'm sure it would only use 5%-15%. I'll check the next time i have some torrents on.

best of all pfsense only takes... 30 seconds to boot? I get to recycle some computers i have collecting in the dust too

If you have no DHCP server running, wouldn't it be a big hassle every time a new computer connects on the network? might want to get that running...
