My query here relates to meeting the minimum hardware requirements to run the Advanced Proxy – Squid, addition to IPCop on my very advancer home network.

Most of the time I am the only user of the internet in our house, there is no business related server here, it is just a standard? What do you think? If you’ve got an old PII sitting around it would work just as well as a mini itx board, and be way cheaper to boot.

Jim Thanks for your reply Jim. If I may ask you another question or two; is choosing to use the same server as a NAS, counter productive? Certainly not 24hours a day though. I measured the draw of several machines. Go with the Pent 2 for CPU power to electrical power advantage.

I just got an Intel Atom based board. I was needing the cpu power to add a photo archive site LINpha on my web server currently the pent 2 I have to say I love the capability of the Pent2. For basic web pages it works great. I am just not happy with the limited options on my current router. I really liked the idea of the passive Celeron less noise and dust intrusion.

It just seemed more sluggish than the Pent2. I did not do any real world test to confirm it though. Also the Celeron was a branded Compaq locked down bios vs. I have one question which I hope fits this thread. Can these old Pent 2 boxes push Gigabit lan?

Do their PCI bus speeds support it? This would not be for disk usage, only as a Gigabit router. It boots up to login in XP Pro’, which is a good sign. I’ll report back any problems or hopefully just my success story.

I think it is working, but I can’t configure it beyond the setup. Which is probably why it was at the garbage dump to begin with I guess. I use IPCop here at home and at work. I have most, if not all, of the addons installed. Never had a single problem. I have approx 7 computers here on at any given time. The real winner for me is the Update Accelerator addon.

The hard drive is overkill but it was the only larger one I had laying around. We have a little over computers running with this. Of course we only have a T1 so I’m not really sure what we could really push through this.

Just some helpful notes Unless a version newer than the one I run is able to do it, IPCop takes over the whole machine, you couldn’t run a file server on it at the same time.

And in my opinion, a hardware firewall should be just that and only that. Thanks for your post Carbm1. I have had my Optiplex running Memtest86 for 2. I’ll let it go all night, if it makes it through the night without failing, I guess I’ll look a prixy further into the machine, replace data cables maybe try different drives in the hope that I may salvage it. First thing I did when I got it home was blow all of the dust out of the thing with compressed air.


Anyway, if its not this machine, I’ll find another for the job. It your first line of defense.

[other] MiniITX & IPCop Firewall with Advanced Proxy add-on? [Archive] – Ubuntu Forums

I run Ubuntu 8. Yes, a firewall is supposed to be secure, eh? I note you only mentioned one NIC, you’re going to need at least two to interface a broadband connection to your local network. I could gain no access via a web browser, so perhaps I misunderstood the instructions somewhere? Anyway, I’m off to bed, I expect that tomorrow I may have a question or two, I hope you don’t mind dealing with a first time user of IPCop?

I read your IPCop blog, it is great, I look forward to being capable of using some of your techniques myself in the future. First I had better work out how to install it properly Sometimes it’s easier if they are quite different, that makes it easier to know which is which.

Should still be able to work with two the same though. Well, this is going to be a bit different from a normal configuration. I’m not familiar with the speedstream but are you sure you need to use the IPCop box on a two seat network?

You are definitely not going to want two boxes act as DHCP servers on the same network, that might even have been the source of your no access issue. You already seem to be using it, reading documentation and asking questions. Boy is this machine noticeably slower than the Optiplex.

I would like to set up the IPCop box to its ability to be a caching web proxy, apart from the other things that it does so well.

Part I: Install IPCop Firewall – Advanced Proxy, URL Filter Add-On

We were all first time users at some point, there is a time tested and proven cure for ignorance. Are you on cable or DSL internet? If you are on cable You should have set a Advancev number Once thats done you should be able to go to http: Which your ISP should provide. The RED should be plugged into your now in bridge mode speedstream modem.

Hope this helps a little We need to make sure your able to ping the box from inside even if the internet isn’t working. IPCop is a great project. I hope you don’t give qdvanced on it too soon. To re-enter the setup just type ‘setup’ at the bash prompt. Have been using a The IP of the speedstream is Arvanced will have to edit the settings in the speedstream again.

I suspect that you will be able to see what are my obvious to you: Well I had my first look around the IPCop browser interface, it looks good, all that is yet to be learned. Of course my IPCop config is still wrong, so I had to reset the speedstream back to defaults, which has taken me about 3 hours to recover from. I have taken notes of the speedstream’s settings, so I should be able to recover somewhat quicker next time.


I really should have had a record of my ISP’s settings for it anyway. It is more complicated than some I have seen. As I mentioned, I advvanced know anything about the speedstream you have but these things usually have a reset switch often it is recessed so it can’t be operated accidently. If it’s there it operates differently from a power cycle reset, the reset switch puts the box back at defaults, that could save you the three hours for more productive testing. I suspect that you will be able to see what are my obvious to you mistakes, which I reckon could cut this process’s time down dramatically Great idea, this discussion has become complicated enough with various hardware that a clear representation of your proposed network could be useful.

Could you work up some sort of description of your network architecture?

For ipco a list, in order of connection, of the hardware and the ipcpp. Something like this could help us visualise the situation Having a graphical representation of your network architecture could be useful for you in the future as it becomes more complex and after it has been a while since you set it up.

It looks like you are getting advnced if I understand your posts correctly, you’ve managed to establish connection from your Ubuntu through the switch to your IPCop box, hang advnced there. You’ve probably already learned a vast amount of new information. Yes, I had to reset the speedstream to be able to access the setup via the browser again. Due to the reset it took me a long time to be able to get the right settings in to make it work again, as it has a quite a complicated setup procedure which I have made note of for future reference like I should have when I initially set it up a couple of years ago.

I agree, things that I once new, have to be learned all over again after what seems to be a progressively decreasing amount of time, as I get older Yes, it really gave me a lift to finally be able to access the IPCop box from the browser of my main machine. I didn’t even know that was in the realm of possibilities, I certainly would procy to be able to remove the speedstream from the LAN altogether if it is possible?

I believe the arvanced your looking for is here: I’m now on Cable and still have no worries. I hope this points you in the right direction. Please let me know and if this doesn’t get you Sorry it took you so long to get the modem out of bridge mode.

The above is a good read
