Linux firewall failover

Hello,

I'm looking at an option to deploy a couple of Linux boxes as our main router for HA (after the power supply of our SonicWall fried itself on the night of a non-working day). This morning I though it would be neat if the standby firewall node could replicate the connection tracking info from the primary node and a quick search shows that a couple of people have already beaten me to it - enter contrackd ( http://people.netfilter.org/pablo/conntrackd/, announcement in http://lists.netfilter.org/pipermail/netfilter-devel/2006-May/024548.html ) and ctsyncd (blog in http://gnumonks.org/~laforge/weblog/linux/netfilter/ct_sync/, SVN in https://svn.netfilter.org/netfilter/trunk/netfilter-ha/ct_sync/)

conntrackd came later but seems to be more active and feature complete than ctsyncd (e.g. using both firewall nodes at once to double the bandwidth), it's not packaged for Debian yet (it's in some ITP list and debian already has "conntrack") and appears to be still in experimental state.

Does anyone here have experience with anything like this?

Cheers,

--Amos

Any Linux application which knows to import Freehand 9 files?

I am asking, after a Google search failed to turn up anything suitable.

I am looking for an application, which is capable of importing Freehand
9 drawings and making them available (as image files or, if possible, as
vector files) for standard Linux image/vector editing applications.

Is there such a thing at all?
                                         Thanks,
                                              --- Omer

Linux Friendly ? - Musings

Hi All,
 
I had an idea:
 
I wish we had a portal - say: http://www.linuxfriendly.org.il (which is free, BTW) - where any GNU/Linux Israeli user could go and get info about any product / service / web site etc. that is Linux friendly.
 
We can also have a category or indicator to let us know how-linux-friendly it really is, i.e.: if some areas of the web site are completely Linux friendly - there's a "complete" indicator (green bar?) and if some other part or area is complete - another indicator and so on.
 
We can use such a site to centralize the info and also to pressure the companies to go ahead and fix what's missing (nobody likes to get a bad grade in a publicly available site).
 
We could, maybe, find a way to reward companies with "all green" status - like promotions in Israeli Linux related sites, conventions etc.
 
Of course I have a lot more to say about it - but I will let you comment a bit first.... ;-)

A workaround (and not a solution).

1. Find the file name.
$ apt-cache show user-he | grep Filename
Filename: pool/main/u/user-he/user-he_1.0.14_all.deb

2. Find the repository
$ apt-cache policy user-he
user-he:
  Installed: 1.0.14
  Candidate: 1.0.14
  Version table:
 *** 1.0.14 0
        500 http://mirror.hamakor.org.il unstable/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

3. Do some combination to build an exact URL.

If you want a straight solution, you'll have to build something on your own.

Why? That's perfect.
I have several sources for ffmpeg, querying apt-cache I get
medibuntu.sos-sts.com that's exactly what I needed.

$ apt-cache policy ffmpeg
ffmpeg:
  Installed: 3:0.cvs20060823-3.1ubuntu4+medibuntu2
  Candidate: 3:0.cvs20060823-3.1ubuntu4+medibuntu2
  Version table:
 *** 3:0.cvs20060823-3.1ubuntu4+medibuntu2 0
        500 http://medibuntu.sos-sts.com feisty/free Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     3:0.cvs20060823-3.1ubuntu4 0
        500 http://il.archive.ubuntu.com feisty/universe Packages
        500 http://archive.ubuntu.com feisty/universe Packages

RE: Linux firewall failover

If you do not limit yourself to Linux, you can easily use PF
(pf+pfsync+CARP) to do the job.
