Easy Firewall Generator and WIFI


Will the Easy Firewall Generator with INET_IFACE="eth0" protect a WIFI connection using wlan0?

Thanks for any help.

No, it will not, use "+" instead to cover all interfaces.

Thanks. That solved my problem. The "help" led me to believe that I could only enter eth0, eth1, eth+, or ppp0 etc.

I had to google for help on entering the correct conntrack commands in the rc.firewall file. The state match was obsolete. It seems to work without errors now.

If you could post the corrections, that would help others.

The corrections are probably those discussed here. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...1/#post4900643
Was an up to date version of EFG used?

I didn't know there was a new updated EFG. It works correctly now.
Thanks
