guarddog on MDK 2005LE plus

Recommended Posts

EDIT: 21MAY05 It is best to download latest Mandrake rpm Guarddog from author

on page http://www.simonzone.com/software/guarddog/#download


and install it by clicking on it, then start it (from menu,system,configuration,guarddog) and set your parameters - only then are you protected.


Ignore the patch below. (it is still needed if you get guarddog from Mandriva easyurpmi)


a note on guard dog - MDK10.2, MDK2005LE and after - don't forget - after you have installed guarddog and set up the parameters the way you want them,


if [ ! -e /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup.d/10Guarddog ]; then
 /bin/ln -s /etc/rc.firewall /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup.d/10Guarddog
if [ ! -e /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifdown.d/10Guarddog ]; then
 /bin/ln -s /etc/rc.firewall /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifdown.d/10Guarddog



otherwise it won't activate on reboot. guarddog prob. Code from Rolf Pederson.

I upgraded from guarddog 2.4 to 2.5 recently and I got a similar problem.

I got both rpm packages from the author's website and I have Mdv2007.


All outgoing connections will work but the ports I opened on my machine don't work when I start the ADSL connection. After the adsl connection is up, I have to start guarddog and press the "apply" button before these ports will work. I use rp-pppoe to start my adsl connection.

This was not a problem at all in 10.1


The two symlinks kristi mentioned in the previous reply are all present on my machine and point to the correct destination.

Any ideas?
