Hello Peter

what's about the software only version of EFW enterprise ?

Thomas
----------------------------

I would be seriously interested in a software enterprise version.  The
Hardware version is simply too pricey, for the Endian solution, and who is
going to support the hardware in South Africa?  I would really like to see a
software version that we could purchase at a reduced price, and have support
available on a pay per usage basis, you could offer support only for systems
running recommended hardware to help the support staff.

Any thoughts Peter?

Re: To Peter: software only enterprise version

Infact I too was looking for the Enterprise software only version, but I was 
told that it is not there now and will be an option later on.

Coming with a software only option for Endian Ent edition will be a very 
good move for the company as well as users like us from foreign countries. 
It is a win-win deal.

Regards,
Ahamed

Firewall reliability

I have a PC with Endian installed on it. It's been running OK most of the time, but on Friday we lost internet connectivity.

I could connect to the firewall through the web interface, however, I was unable to ping anything on the internet side of the firewall - including our internet router.

Rebooting the firewall PC didn't fix the issue.

I called our ISP who confirmed that they could see our internet router was online OK.

In the end I fixed the problem by shutting down the firewall box. Removing, then re-seating the red NIC. The firewall then worked OK.

I know this is a strange issue and I don't expect anyone to know what caused the problem. However, I need to have an ultra-reliable firewall (we're soon going to put all our phone calls through the box as well as internet traffic (VOIP system)).

I'm considering the following courses of action...

1) Replace the PC for something more reliable. Can someone suggest an ideal unit to run Endian on?
2) Buy an Endian appliance
3) Buy a different sort of hardware firewall
4) Do nothing, hope I don't get any more problems!

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Al

Port 53 open

I did a port scan on my PC using grc.com's Shields UP service.

It found that my port 53 is open. Is this normal? I can't see anything in the firewall config that would open port 53.

Re: Port 53 open

DNS is port 53.

Re: Load balance - how to do?????

Hi,

I read in one of the messages of the list that the possibility exists of 
doing the load-balancing with two or more link´s.

I also read that in the product appliance of Endian he allows the Multi-WAN 
load-balancing of WAN.

See what is written in the site of Endian:

9. Advanced Networking
Endian Firewall provides advanced network features that ensure network 
functionality, redundancy and speed. Network Setup Wizard enables you to 
easily and proficiently setup your network using separate security zones. 
Multi-WAN load-balancing, high availability, VLAN support, interface 
failover, and traffic shaping allows you to effortlessly manage network 
resources while smoothly moving traffic through your network.

Because this service is not available in the version open-source?

I use Endian and I appreciate a lot. I need that this works without 
problems.

Can you help me?

Thank you

Marco Aurélio

This option is not available in the current version, but Endian claims that 
it will be in the future versions.

I've asked this as well and never received a response. This is **critcal**.

A tutorial would go a long way in getting me to use Endian more and more.

Re: Port 53 open

Thanks Dave

Sorry for my ignorance, but why would it need to be open on port 53?
Doesn't it only need to allow outbound connections?

Cheers

Al

Re: Port 53 open


Hi Al,

No need to be sorry. We are all at learning here together.

Typically yes, 53 ought to be closed off on RED. At least insofar as it forwards
requests to an internal IP (unless that's the plan).

If Endian is your gateway it's likely looking up IP's for your network so

clients can resolve domains. I'm not certain on that...perhaps someone else

in the group can comment.

HTTP timeout

We have a site that we use regularly throughout the day. We regularly get server timeout errors from Endian when browsing the site.

Is there a way that I can increase the timeout period? The site is HTTPS if that makes any difference.

Cheers

Al
