    So no one knows or wants to install packages on ZS without having to reinstall them every single time zeroshell reboots?

    in reply to: Zeroshel and Apcupsd mod #51462

    I’m having same issue as well, anyone know about this?

    in reply to: Does RAIDUS server even work with tomatousb linksys routers? #52185

    I think there’s something wrong with my windows client setup, it seems RADIUS functions fine since freeradius is easy enough to implement, i’ve done some more testing.

    Is there any better guides in setting up the clients on windows using EAP-TLS?

    Not an expert enough on Radius authentication to really help. As I said I followed a cookbook I found. Just did a web search and maybe it was this one: http://www.linuxplanet.com/linuxplanet/tutorials/6737/1/

    Glad to hear my net balance/QoS patch seems to be working for you. I do wish Fulvio would put it in his release….

    Yes but your patch is easy enough to use and install 🙂

    NB is great, when using my newsgroup downloading documentaries I can get around 50mbps or about ~ 6MB/sec

    It definitely does work… I have sucesfully had WRT54GLs, E3000s, RT-n16s, and the g asus router that supports mlppp all work with Radius Authentication and built in LDAP via Tomato… can you walk me through your procedure.. have you set up radius authenticated clients and radius proxy server for the tomatos

    Sure, I just followed some of those guides on the net, but here is the ballpark. I’m just trying to do simple PEAP for now

    -First, created new trusted CA, exported that to .DER file to use on clients.
    -Enabled the RADIUS
    -Added authorized clients, so my router(s) – e3000’s IP address, lets say it’s .105 of the subnet
    -Added a user, myself with password.

    -On tomato firmware router E-3000, wireless AP 2.4Ghz I changed to WPA2 enterprise, AES encryption, Radius server: zeroshell’s admin IP, and port # 1812

    -Clients, I imported the .DER file and put it in the trusted certificates.
    -setup the wireless AP properties: Select Enterprise/radius
    -Set computer authentication, prompt for user/pass
    -PEAP, selected the certificate I imported
    -set EAP-MSCHAP v2

    Then now I try to connect to my router and what happens is I get prompt user/pass then I enter it and it can’t connect, error, doesn’t work etc.

    I check zeroshell, there’s nothing in the RADIUSD logs, just says waiting for request…

    Thanks for responding, this ZS is not easy!

    I finally fixed up most things like your NB patch which works great! thanks and now is just RAIDUS, then maybe VPN for remote access.

    I have a WRT54G2 as well, along with E-3000 and D-link router.

    On the logs I see nothing at all, it doesn’t even seem like the router is trying to authenticate with RADIUS on ZS?

    So I’m not sure what to try next?

    At least some Linksys wifi routers work… I used to have WPA2 Enterprise setup on my WRT54G2 using the Radius server on the Zeroshell box for authentication.

    I had to drop that when my wife got a Kindle which couldn’t handle that type of authentication. Now I’m just doing WPA2 Personal which requires nothing of the Zeroshell Radius server.

    I don’t recall doing much more than following the cookbook that I found someplace on the Zeroshell site. http://www.zeroshell.net/eng/radiusdetails/ might help but that doesn’t look like the one I remember.

    I do recall that I had to look at the radius logs on the Zeroshell a few times to figure out what was going wrong. If you see nothing in the logs, then I’d double check the address the WiFi router is trying to use for the Radius server. I’m guessing if the pre-shared key doesn’t match up that will show in the logs so you’ll know about it.

    in reply to: Using USB drive for main profile storage #52172

    So you’re saying the flash is not good to save the profile stuff?

    But what about the zeroshell boot img file, can that be stored on flash drive and be ok since it’s loaded into ram anyways?

    I think there was some issue with the partition label being GPT or MSDOS

    I’m not sure what the original problem was but now it seems I can format and create partitions on the web interface after I changed the partition label back to MSDOS..

    So I’m not sure why before there was an issue…

    Can you explain which partition can zeroshell deal with? GPT or MSDOS?

    Hi, actually I don’t understand how I solved the problem.

    Basically it seems the SSD I want to use, I need to use “parted” to create GPT label, then after I can format mkfs.ext3, then it seems to work and save the profile…

    If I change the label to msdos then format, it will fail to mount with kernel panic.

    do you know the reason? I’m using 3.2.1 of your version, you said you have 3.2.2 now? 🙂 I will try if it newer..

    Hi can you read my post, I’m having issue with mounting my sdd or something with the file system, Im’ not sure what is going on

    in reply to: CPU load maxed out, why is this happening? Netbalancer #52157

    Well i’ve double checked now and basically the main culprits using TOP to check process use is PPPOE and irqkd or something, I forgot the actual name…

    they both jump around 30-40% on TOP output, I’m not sure if I’m reading correctly but I’ve checked on my ESXi performance monitor and also the the zeroshell graphing thing.

    So total I’m using 70-75% cpu use for those 2 process..

    any reason why? PPPOE uses that much?

    I haven’t run things under ESXi so I don’t know what sort of overhead that adds.

    Zeroshell is basically just a GUI front end that configures a pretty basic Linux system. And the network traffic management (routing, net balancing, etc.) is all done in the Linux kernel. From what I’ve read and experienced, Linux does a pretty efficient job of that. Not as good as high end routers with hardware acceleration of traffic classification and packet forwarding. But pretty good for a general purpose operating system.

    You have faster Internet connections than I but I can achieve 25Mbps using a 500MHz Net5501. Not sure of the CPU load at that point because all my Internet provider claims is 20Mbps so I wasn’t looking for things that could be slowing down my connection.

    How does ESXi deal with virtualized network interfaces? is there OS overhead there?

    Yeah I would think most Linux based systems have little overhead, especially things like this, and extremely stable. My FreeNAS box has been trouble free for 2 years running and I stream bluray quality from the box to multiple systems at the same time. I only have also 1 NIC anyways on that machine.

    So I think ESXi has some sort of major overhead in routing network packets or something? I really don’t know, I originally just wanted to install this right on the machine but I couldn’t get to work on the SSD but I may just install on the USB stick and run the DB off the SSD like before.
