I’m working on Shorewall Script to WAN up/down


(Jose G Jimenez S ) #1

Previously make changes LSM (Monitoring), but in tests with my clients did not have the expected change.

Today reviewing the script Shorewall of NethServer is very different from Original Script of Mika Ilmaranta, and Tuomo Soini

On Monday I will perform on-site testing by disconnecting the ISP, from my client and verify proper operation.

Regards

Hi so you want to disable LSM and write somth new? Or improve LSM? What do you want to achieve balancing or failover ?


(Jose G Jimenez S ) #3

LSM works well, but I’m revising the original script, with that of NethServer.

I’ll be doing some tests on my clients with more than two ISP and validate its operation.

The first tests gave me good results, that means that LSM being fulfilled its functions.

The script validates that the state of a ethX depending on the value and executes the command shorewall.

Regards.

I’m using the original and adapted to NethServer paths.

Try if you have more than one ISP

Regards :coffee:


(Artem Fedai) #7

Great work, but maybe firewall refresh would be enought ?


(Jose G Jimenez S ) #8

Thanks @Nas , but I just checked the scripts and operations. It was not much work :smile:

Really the script does the refresh or better said validating ISPs are up.

For companies that do not have a Department of Information Systems it is essential that this working perfectly, but will have the problem of Internet connection.

Regards


(Filippo Carletti) #9

@jgjimenezs , if I understand the modifications, you lowered the interval between ping checks to 1 second to make the link status detection “faster” and restarted the firewall on link status change.

Concerning the timeout values, we could make them adjustable, but if the user sets arbitrary values lsm could become useless.

Regarding the firewall restart, AFAIK, it’s not needed. You could verify that’s not needed, saving a snapshot of the firewall with the standard script and your modified script.

Could you please describe the problems you had with the standard script? Could you share your configuration?


(Jose G Jimenez S ) #10

Oops. Yes. these values were testing to establish an appropriate value.

Using the script NethServer when the ISP connection is lost, it is in DOWN and UP does not change back.

I run shorewall restart to fix it


(Artem Fedai) #11

i think that after restoring one of the wan connections , traffic does not come thouhgt it , and after restarting firewall all is ok ! it is my Point of view!


(Artem Fedai) #12

Maybe it is better to make POST-UP script that would restart firewall :slight_smile:


(Filippo Carletti) #13

I’ve tested wan up and down events a lot and I never saw your problem.
I think you have a configuration error. The most frequent error is forcing a checkip value that’s unreachable or using the same ip on both connections.
Forgive me if I’m starting from the basics, please show us, if you can, your provider config (db networks show).


(Jose G Jimenez S ) #14

That’s right I have it configured with the DNS of Google. That means that if I place each different IP WAN to verify connection, there would be problems?


(Filippo Carletti) #15

You could let the system auto-discover the checkips it would be fine. Otherwise, set them differently for each provider, keeping in mind that when a link is down the checkip will not be reachable.
You could use 8.8.8.8 for provider1 and 8.8.4.4 for provider2.


(Jose G Jimenez S ) #16

This customer has 3 WAN, provider1 8.8.4.4 and 8.8.8.8 provider2 provider3 another DNS

I will leave the original scripts configurare NethServer and as you say.

Thanks @filippo_carletti
