first you need to determine what kind of web server you are running.
lets say you are running apache, in that case you will need to enable SSL on the server itself. you can find a lot of howto’s on the web for setting up a SSL webserver.
once the server accepts secure connections, you can go ahead and forward port 443 (standard SSL) to your server.
hope this explaination helps.
i have not tried this feature but i am pretty sure if you search for session accounting you should be able to find some txt but other than that i really wouldnt know where to refer u.
as far as i know that is called the wall garden option but dont know how to create and remove users without manual input.September 9, 2007 at 7:20 am in reply to: Install zeroshell to hard drive from web interface #45590
i happen to have a partial document on hdd installation for multi OS users.
If only someone could help me finish it?
infact i was thinking about recording a hdd installation video and stick it on youtube.
any help would be appreciated
is there an irc channel somewhere maybe?
first of all your ip assignment table is wrong. If you want your zeroshell box to act as a switch with 4 lan ports dont u think all of them should be on the same IP scope + same subnet
i have been able to deploy a ZeroShell box for a network of 130 hosts. Worked perfectly. I would suggest calculating your server needs by considering 2Mhz & 2MB of ram per connection.
i used a 450Mhz Machine with 256MB Ram for that specific deployment.
i am actually going throught the recompile documentation for one of the other distro kernels. just using it as help for this project. hopefully i will have some luck. will post results soon.
i was wondering if fulvio could give us some notes on compilation outline.
i havent done any kernel compilation for ZeroShell yet but have had some luck with debian. Furthermore you can visit http://www.howtoforge.com and look for kernel compilation tutorials. I have found the tutorials to be very helpful and explanatory.
I am going to lookup some more stuff on kernel compilation (specially for madwifi) and will post as i go.July 30, 2007 at 6:57 pm in reply to: Solution: How to install Zeroshell in Hard drive [WinXP] #45704
the howto is very good. although i have not tried it (since i got my howto to work for me everytime). May be if we make a nice graphical PDF, it would actually look more professional.
ndiswrapper & madwifi capability seems very interesting. I have done some kernel compliation before.
I am going to give it a try and post results.
try and boot from cd with ACPI disabled and post your results.
i tried lessnetworks and found the setup to be easy, a little too easy (too good to be true). You will not need to do any configuration other than signing up on the lessnetworks website and once the system boots you type in your lessnetworks username and password and thats it. However you cannot limit users to your network. Anyone who signs up on lessnetworks can sign on to your WISP (provided that they are in your coverage area). Captive Portal customization is limited. All changes to the hotspot controller are made through the lessnetworks website.
To control users you will need to purchase some kind of premium lessnetworks plan.
I have found ZeroShell to be the best option since it is totally scalable. Once ZeroShell achieves multi-wan capability it will no doubt be the best gateway controller to date.July 28, 2007 at 6:52 pm in reply to: Install zeroshell to hard drive from web interface #45586
i stand by the HDD install idea but ZeroShell setup and configuration requires some Linux familiarity. Its a excellent distro and all good things dont come that easy.
Please follow http://www.zeroshell.net/eng/forum/viewtopic.php?t=329.
Since you are running zeroshell from a live cd, your system might require reboot every once in a while. My ZeroShell box would freeze up every 4-5 days because it was a *POS* computer and restarting it every often fixed this issue.
thats very kool and i am very happy to hear that.
is it possible that we can put together a better howto on this topic with my and your experience with zeroshell.
i am also reading a lot of stuff that would help in putting together a ISO that would help install it on the HDD from a cd.
I would like to invite other people, who are interested in ZeroShell HDD install project, to contribute to it.
ZeroShell is a awesome project and i am definitely a supporter and huge fan now.
