warchief_ryanDoes anyone know how I can have my iptables rules added at boot?02:30
OntologAre there command-line utilities that do the same thing as the Network Configuration GUI?02:34
OntologIn particular, define and apply different Profiles?02:34
warchief_ryanifconfig, depending on what your wanting to do I think.02:36
Ontologifconfig is very low level02:40
Ontologi'm talking about the higher-level 'Profiles' that the GUI supports02:41
ScottKwarchief_ryan: If you configure ufw, it will run at boot.02:41
warchief_ryanI have, but I want to use just iptables02:41
kgoetzdoes hardy still have /etc/rc.local? if so you could put a iptables-restore in there03:22
warchief_ryanwhy would I do that?03:24
warchief_ryanI want my rules added, wont that just restore to default?03:25
kgoetznot if you restore from a dump you made.03:26
warchief_ryanok, how?03:28
kgoetziptables-save and iptables-restore are both <40 line man pages. its not very complex.03:30
warchief_ryancomplex maybe not, but the man pages don't really explain throughly enough, mainly about the process03:34
warchief_ryanlike if its dumping it to somewhere or if ive got to state where to dump03:35
kgoetzafaik its as hard as iptables-save > /root/dump && echo "iptables-restore < /root/dump " > /etc/rc.local # again, assuming that rc.local exists andd is used03:36
warchief_ryank thanks, ill try03:39

khaotikanyone have time to help a complete noob?04:18
lrojashi all04:20
J_5khaotik: we were all noob's at once, just ask you question :)04:20
khaotikwell i would like to attempt to set up one of my machines to run ubuntu server. I have never dealt with any server OS before. ive been using ubuntu desktop for over 1 year.04:22
lrojasi tried installing ubuntu JeOS server on VMWare fusion, but i am not sure if i am suposed to use it only to prepare an appliance or can i use to develop my web app in it... ( care to clarify that? ) but my main question is... Do man comes with JeOS? cause when i try to man something i get command not found04:22
khaotiki have an old laptop i would like to use. is there any limitations or specifications of hardware i should use or stay away from?04:23
lrojasdid i get disconected?04:25
ScottKFor a test server most any hardware will do.04:28
ScottKActually for most server applications hardware is less critical than desktop since you aren't running X and a bunch of heavy apps.04:28
lrojasare you answering me? i am asuming you are answering khaotik04:30
hadslrojas: sudo aptitude install man04:32
khaotikmy bad i had to take the dog for a walk04:33
lrojashads, thanks04:33
hadsJeOS is exactly the same, just a minimal install04:34
lrojasdoes anybody knows if i intend to run the ubuntu server under a VM, installing from the JeOS iso is better than from the regular server ISO?04:34
khaotikthe reason i ask i have an old HP laptop that has 512 MB RAM 40 GB hardrive and pentium 4 1600 Mhz. would that be something sufficient to run on?04:35
jhigueros good night may be you can helpme somebody knows where is magicfab i am loking for him04:36
lrojashads, thanks again didnt realize that you had answered me before i asked my question04:39
khaotikwell i tried installing ubuntu server on it. everything seem to load fine. then when i tried to install a GUI for it it crashed04:44
hadslrojas: No problem04:49
lrojasanybody can give me a sugestion, regarding runing ubuntu server on a Virtual Machine ( VMWare ), should i install it as JeOS Server? or is that only used to make appliances and for more general purposes the standard server is ok?05:16
hadsAs I mentioned it's the same thing, JeOS is just a minimal install.05:17

\shsoren: I'm running between my desktop and my server ;)14:33
\shstrange..after installation the server doesn't boot up as expected...now I "reinstalled" grub from the "rescue system"...and now he finds the devices correctly, but totally wrong from grubs menu.lst now (which was during installation (hd1) and now it's (hd0))..no cold boot done14:34
sorenJust change the boot entry in grub?14:34
lrojashow do i cd into /var/log/lighttpd ? i get permission denied, if i do sudo cd /var... i get cd commnad not found14:38
\shsoren: i did...but something goes wrong during installation via d-i and the final system...I'll have another machine with the same setup tomorrow...so I can check a bit more14:39
\shsoren: btw...do you have any clue how udev setups the devicenames for NICs? It looks a bit strange when the onboard and the other 4Gi NICs are somehow randomly counted...14:40
soren\sh: It's random.14:42
sorenUpon discovering the pci devices, the modules are loaded. The modules's initialisation phases might overlap, and then you get a somewhat odd ordering of the interfaces.14:44
sorenYou can fix it up in /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules14:44
sorenYou can even assign arbitrary names to nics in there. (i.e. you can name them according to function "wan", "dmz", "office", "prod", "test", etc.)14:45
\shsoren: yes..I know, I just thought that it happens via a non-random system e.g. pci-id dependent14:47

Goosemooseanyone know what to set in the preseed file to get the new computers to authenticate users against the domain?20:05
mathiazGoosemoose: have you looked into using the late_command option ?20:06
Goosemooseyeah i just cant seem to get likewise to work right20:06
mathiazGoosemoose: AFAIR the likewise-open package doesn't support preseeding the domain part20:07
Goosemoosethat would be bad, i dont want to manually go join 250 machines to the domain20:07
mathiazGoosemoose: IIRC you can pass the administrator password on the domain-join command line20:07
mathiazGoosemoose: so you can use the late_command option to perform the domain-join and adding likewise-open to the list of packages to be installed20:08
Goosemooseok ill have to figure out the domain-join part, i must have something wrong with it20:08
mathiazGoosemoose: be aware that the preseed will go uncrypted on the network20:08
Goosemoosei used MD5 for the admin user on the machine, I'm guessing domain-join doesn't support that?20:09
mathiazGoosemoose: another solution is to setup ssh public keys on installs and then ssh into the box to do the domain-join20:09
Goosemoosei'd rather avoid that if i can20:10
mathiazGoosemoose: right - it seems the first you'd have to take is to figure the domain-join command line20:11
Goosemooseim going to look on the forums some more20:11
mathiazGoosemoose: once you've got the command line, you can choose where you want to automate it : late_command in preseed (less secure depending on your installation environment) or via ssh20:12
Goosemoosehmm, i just installed likewise-open on a machine via sudo apt-get install likewise-open, but the domain-join command does not exist20:25
Goosemooseis there another dependency?20:25
Goosemoosenvm its domainjoin-cli20:25
sommerjdstrand: pinger20:26
jdstrandsommer: hey20:27
sommerufw has some new options?20:27
jdstrandsommer: I just have a few really small things20:27
jdstrandsommer: 1) ufw has 'status' and 'status verbose'20:27
sommerjdstrand: ah, I'll note that20:28
jdstrandsommer: 2) until case-insensitive profile names are in place, when referencing applications profiles, we should use a capitalized first letter20:28
jdstrandsommer: eg 'Samba' or 'Apache'20:28
sommerokay, are the --update-new options the same?... I thought there were some changes, at least from the one email thread20:29
jdstrandsommer: let's get back to that in just a sec20:30
sommerheh, no problem20:30
jdstrandsommer: you say: "Similar to allowing traffic to a port, enabling an application profile is accomplished by entering"20:31
zulmathiaz: do you have an opinnon on bug #26770120:32
uvirtbot`Launchpad bug 267701 in php5 "php5 session files purge cron job not working outside /var/lib/php5" [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/26770120:32
jdstrandsommer: but there really isn't a concept of 'enabling an application profile"20:32
jdstrandsommer: it's really, just using it, like you might use a protocol name in /etc/services20:32
jdstrandsommer: you use 'enabled' in a few places in there, so the workding may need to change somewhat20:33
jdstrandsommer: does that make sense?20:33
sommerjdstrand: I think so20:33
jdstrandsommer: ok good-- eg "To view details about which ports, protocols, etc are enabled for an application, enter:"20:33
mathiazzul: we should find out why php is creating session in /tmp/20:33
jdstrandsommer: here, just do s/enabled/defined/20:34
mathiazzul: or which module is causing that - and fix it there20:34
zulmathiaz: cool..20:34
jdstrandsommer: now to your previous question20:34
jdstrandsommer: 'ufw app update <foo>' only does something if you used the profile 'foo' in your rulesets20:35
jdstrandsommer: otherwise it's a no-op20:35
sommerjdstrand: gotcha20:36
jdstrandsommer: 'ufw app update --add-new <foo>' will do as above, but will also add a rule to your existing rules if the default application policy is changed away from 'skip'20:36
jdstrandsommer: no packages do that currently20:36
jdstrandsommer: unless you are going to talk about how an administrator can use applications profiles, you might want to just skip mentioning '--add-new'20:37
jdstrandsommer: what do you think?20:37
sommerjdstrand: I think that'd be simpler20:38
jdstrand(it is in the man page)20:38
jdstrandsommer: I agree20:38
jdstrandsommer: it was always intended for maintainer scripts, and possibly for advanced sysadmins20:38
sommerjdstrand: cool, I'll rework that bit20:38
jdstrandsommer: that's all I have. thanks *soo* much for the docs :)20:39
sommerjdstrand: np, thank you20:39
sommerjdstrand: ufw section updated :-)21:11
sommerjdstrand: it may be tomorrow before the changes appear on the website though21:12
