    @janice,
    the boot screen shows the various boot kernels and you choose to boot from the one you prefer.
    Once running, you may tell Zeroshell the default kernel to use (menu SETUP, button BOOT, dropdown list BOOTIMAGE)

    All my issues sorted out with v3.8.2

    I believe this is not implemented, as stated on the manual.
    Probably a forgotten part of this project.
    Would be nice to have it done. Would allow me to use the integrated captive portal of ZS. Mobile devices nowadays hunt so much for bandwidth that this is a very important feature to enable.

    https://www.zeroshell.org/radius-accounting/

    Connection Limits
    For each class of accounting is possible to define an upper limit in Megabytes for the traffic generated and the maximum number of hours or fractions of hours for which the user can remain connected. When the user exceeds at least one of the two limits is automatically disconnected and no longer allowed to connect until the counters are not reset. Note that the bandwidth limit in Megabytes per second has not yet been implemented in the current version of Zeroshell (1.0.beta16).

    I just tried with with v3.8.2 and it is not limiting.

    Kudos to Fulvio for putting this project together by the way, I keep coming back to ZS after trying other solutions.

    He is usually very fast and effective with the activations.
    There is no stipulated amount, but being generous helps to improve the project.

    Probably that you have too many connections from one single IP in your network, so it could be serving an DDos attack.

    in reply to: Zeroshell as a PPTP client – possible? #52020

    Hi gurus,

    Today I need Zeroshell to connect to a VPS PPTP server.
    The idea is that other clients dial into the same VPS PPTP server, and reach the Zeroshell LAN network for some remote work needed on a weekly basis.

    I do not see this ZS_as_PPTP_Client option integrated into Zeroshelll 3.8.1
    I am going to attempt to use the Beta proposed in this thread and I hope it works. I will keep you all posted.

    If anyone has a better fix today, I would appreciate some feedback.
    Thanks.

    Well… since yesterday, it started misbehaving again. I am downgrading.
    I have OpenVPN tunnels between 4 sites, maybe the restarts have to do with unstable VPN links, it is the only abnormality I see with this particular Zeroshell vm.

    I will downgrade back to v3.7.1 and cross fingers. Maybe in the meantime, I will restore an existing vm backup and continue checking why this is happening.

    Thanks @montikore.
    Oversight with that one. It did fix it. It’s been running stable for the past 14 hours.

    After switching to v3.8, I downloaded the 64-bit kernel and switched to it.
    It’s fixed now, working and stable.

    Hi group,

    I keep getting random reboots on my ZS, running on Proxmox host.
    version 3.8 keeps rebooting randomly.
    I have tried clean installs, and also upgrades.
    The results are the same.
    Everytime I go back to v3.7.1, it works again fine.

    The vm has the following features:
    2GB RAM
    5GB HDD
    2 x network devices Intel E1000 (vmbr0 and vmbr2)

    Disk details seem good, I can see available space:
    root@zs ~> df -h
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    tmpfs 1011M 16M 996M 2% /
    /dev/sr0 275M 275M 0 100% /cdrom
    shm 1011M 0 1011M 0% /dev/shm
    /dev/vda4 4.0G 3.2G 580M 85% /DB
    /DB/_DB.002 4.0G 3.2G 580M 85% /Database

    Admin logs show the reboots follow no time_related pattern:

    I cannot see a reason for reboot.
    Proxmox vm running the zeroshell does not report error either, it shows it’s up all the time.

    Do you recommend anywhere else to check?
    My workaround is to go back to v3.7.1, but might not be a safe choice.

    Any feedback would be kindly appreciated.

    I have no issues with the same version. How are you connecting? certificate? What do your logs say?

    in reply to: HAVP – DNS error #54211

    sukupandachu
    Participant

    Same behavior in my case. I am using OpenDNS.

    LAN—>local_bind9_DNS_Cache(OpenDNS)—>Zeroshell—>ADSL_Router—>INTERNET

    The only factor I have noticed is that it happens usually during heavy usage (high loads) but I still haven’t figure out the exact reason.

    I do not use ZS for DNS for now, requests are forwarded to a local bind9 server which in turn requests from OpenDNS (208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220). But still I have the same error randomly.

    ***EDITED Mar 16th 2017, to help with Dropbox new Public folder changes***
    Now images displayed as links, not embedded, till I find out how to do it with the new changes in Dropbox.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    Not sure if you still need these hints.

    The main reason for me to start using Zeroshell was QoS.
    It works fantastically well and it is extremely flexible compared to other tools that I did try too. The Zeroshell QoS interface is very user friendly.

    I do not prioritize by machine, but by traffic type.
    Probably if you do it by machine, you are doing it the right way, each one with its own dedicated bandwidth.
    In my case, the only machine prioritized and with reserved bandwidth is my VOIP gateway.
    The rest may use all the available bandwidth at a given time.

    L7 filters might be outdated yes, but prioritizing works well with other aspects of QoS in Zeroshell. Also, notice that with nDPI on the new Zeroshell kernel 3.6, we may use nDPI classification too.

    >>>>>Here below is my setup for HOME.

    First of course, I read the guidelines on how to setup the QoS.
    https://www.zeroshell.org/qos/

    Then I created my own classification scheme. Notice that not only helps to prioritize traffic but also classify reporting, so that you may know what type of traffic use you have on your network. You may even benefit from DSCP too if you want to use it.

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/ittimon4doats4a/Class-Manager.JPG?dl=0

    After that, I assign each class to the interface that I want. In my simplified case, I used the same for upload and download, but may be done differently. The link is 608kb download and 320kb upload, so I setup the global bandwidth on each interface to match that of the link. I used 85% of the max bandwidth.

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/dge3lbprsr92g7g/Interfaces.JPG?dl=0

    Then I go to the classifier and start classifying in order of importance, from 1st to the last rule that I want to have.
    Voice is extremely important to me, I give it top priority.

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/9scfipb4jb6c65v/Classifier.JPG?dl=0

    This is the lower part of my classifier table
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/d8iyl5b9vygc7s6/Classifier2.JPG?dl=0

    I then check it real-time with the statistics link, where I get a realtime snapshot of how it is going.
    It is good to look at it, to make sure things are working as expected.
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/71xloepu617hd7d/QoSStats.JPG?dl=0

    And then, voila! My home QoS is setup and working.
    Again, this is a ridiculous bandwidth we are talking about on this part of the World, as Internet is very expensive here (608kbps/308kpbs) but I can listen to the radio, talk on the phone without interruption while my kids are playing network games on the same Internet line.

    I cannot believe how I did it all these years without Zeroshell.

    **Do not forget to save the configuration profile before and after each modification.

    I thank this community for its existence. And congrats Fulvio, this is definitely a very good product.
