I am trying to run Firestarter firewall but keep getting the message ETH0 is not ready.
This problem has been highlighted by others but is there a simple way of sorting this out, answers in other forums are wide and varied. but it's not clear if they have been successful.
It is obvious form this that the interface that you are actually sending your data over is wlan0 (some local interprocess data is going over lo, but you can ignore that for the moment).
Is this what you are trying to do (ie, use the wireless connection, wlan0 for your connection to the outside world)? Or, is it the case that you are trying to use the wired connection eth0 for your connection? In the former case, you have to configure the firewall to use wlan0, in the latter case, you have to find out why you are getting the error message with eth0 (complete WAG: do you have a working driver for your ethernet card?).
Thanks, that has sorted it out (almost) It's up and running but I now get a message "failed to open the system log, No event information will be available"
If I try to reload it I get "error reading system log (null) file does not exist.
The firewall is running as I can see the outgoing address.
Any further thoughts on this.
