Problem: Unable to connect to the SmoothWall web interface.

I am not sure what to check next.

History: Have tried...

192.168.2.1:81
192.168.2.1:445
smoothwall
smoothwall:81
smoothwall:445

I put smoothwall into the host file.

I am able to ping.
DHCP works fine and is assigning.

When SW starts up I DO see http start.

I looked at past posts but they talk about full logs. Being
a fresh load, this should not be a problem.

I have rebooted both systems several time.
(Thats what Tech Support always asks)


- - - - System config - - - -

I have a fresh install of SmoothWall GPL 2.0 beta5 "Orient".

P133 with 16mb RAM
Green: Intel i82557/i82558 pci etherexpresspro
Red: EtherWORKS DE 425
About a 1 gb drive.
cdrom

192.168.2.1 is SmoothWall
192.168.2.100 to 199 is IP range

- - - -

Also: Can you administer Smoothwall without using the web interface ?


Thanks
Monty

1) Did you add your smoothwall's IP address as an exclusion to the proxy
configuration ? (caught me out a few times...)

2) Smoothwall non-web config: Not really... you can a little but not to
any useful point...

If it's your log files, check this shortcut that Fede posted in another
message, it's perfect, you have to to some editing using VIM, shortened to
VI on the Smoothie, but it works, here's the link...
http://community.smoothwall.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1003

And here's a shortcut to a nice VIM cheat sheet, since it's an 'old school'
editor you may need it.....

Try these tricks out, they get rid of some of the annoying logs from the
blaster worm that clog up the log files...fast...

smoothwall does include joe - much easier to use than vim (IMHO),
especially in that it has an on-line help window at the top of the screen

Found The problem.

I did not put in a domain in the SmoothWall setup.

Did not know that you had to put one in. Thought that all you needed
was the just the IP's. I knew it had to be something simple...

Systems up and running great.


What is the best (easy) way to check the logs for trends and then
clear them ??


Thanks all for the help.


Ron
