[clug-talk] IPCop upgrade

As a relative newcomer to the Linux\OS Community I started of using
IPC-op 142. Earlier this week I installed an IPCop 1.4.8 box with a few
add-ons. I've added a URL filter, proxy server and a couple of add--ons
that add nice but unessential features. When completed I had a box that
functioned as a firewall, proxy server with individual user
authentication and logging, as well as a URL filter with a base
blacklist and user editable white\blacklist as well as domain
allow\blocking. BTW, the proxy can work in both transparent or
When I set up my first IPCop box it was a difficult task for me even
though I had all the instructions handy. This was a "Dave" thing. Call
it exam anxiety I guess. Anyway by Ver 1.4.8 I have no problem slapping
a box together in an evening and dropping it into it's new home in the
IPCop, for me, is a useful tool that I still have a lot to learn about.
More work with the different rules is next on my plan. As well as
getting an "Orange-as-Green" add-on to work. This add-on changes the
Orange interface into another Green while preventing communication
between the Orange and Green networks.
A couple of questions:
1. How\Is it possible to transfer a list of users and their passwords
from an old box to a new one?
2. Can the addition of users\passwords be accomplished "en masse" from a
pre-compiled list or spreadsheet. The GUI used to enter individual users
that are required to authenticate thorough the IPCop box prior to being
permitted access to the Internet requires the following fields:
Username, Password, ConfirmPassword, and UserType.
dwatkins, mypassword, mypassword, Extended
Obviously a way to just drop this info into a file somewhere is a
simpler than entering each one individually.
3. Anyone got the "Orange-as-Green" Mod working?
BTW, this is running on a P400 MHz box with 512 RAM and a 40GB HDD. CD
and FDD have been removed.
Just some observations and questions,
