Start Firestarter from GKrellM ? (ppp)
I've been screwing around with this for a week now... I found instructions for using GKrellM's Timer Button (on the 'Net' built-in) to run 'pon' and 'poff' through the ppp0 interface.
I also found instructions for configuring sudoers so that Firestarter could be started without entering a root password. The instructions came from a Firestarter faq somewhere. So that's what I did instead of changing permissions of the executable.
Then over on the ppp0 tab's 'Launch Commands' text box, I entered "sudo firestarter -s".
Well the firewall doesn't open (though the manual says it works without the program visible. So I checked it by going to grc.com and running ShieldsUp, and it fails. If I manually open Firestarter, ShieldsUp reports all ports are stealth. (And I do have to enter the root password...)
I read that Firestarter won't work if the ppp connection isn't there when loaded--and I've found that is true. So I have to get my dialup connection first, but I want my firewall loaded automatically.
Anyone have any suggestions? I'm figuring this is a GKrellM issue, but I don't know what to do about it...
Thanks for any assistance.
