Ubuntu Feisty 7.04 manual page repository

Ubuntu is a free computer operating system based on the Linux kernel. Many IT companies, like DeployIS is using it to provide an up-to-date, stable operating system.

        /etc/netscript/network.conf  - interface, firewalling, and QoS configu‐
        ration file.
        /etc/netscript/if.conf - interface setup shell script file
        /etc/netscript/qos.conf - QoS setup shell script file
        /etc/netscript/ipfilter.conf - IP chains filtering shell script file
        /etc/netscript/srvfilter.conf - server IP filter shell script file


        This manpage is a place holder until something better is  written  when
        the netscript itself has stopped changing rapidly.
        Please  see  the  README file in the /etc/netscript directory, and READ
        the configuration files if you need to change them.   Apart  from  net‐
        work.conf,  all of them contain sh (1) shell script functions which are
        there so that various things can be altered or hooked in at  the  right
        place.  Network.conf contains the full network setup details, including
        special interface setup for the likes of ciped/pppd/wanconfig,  and  is
        fully commented with examples given.
        The  firewall/IP  filtering  stuff  in  ipfilter.conf  is the part that
        changed radically with the move to iptables and a  far  better  way  of
        setting  up  the  IP  filtering  rules,  however  the QoS and interface
        startup/shutdown in if.conf have changed but are  backwards  compatible
        with  the  old  2.2.x  ipchains  version of netscript for the interface
        address configuration settings.  You will have to set up the  filtering
        again to use iptables by directly using the iptables commands.
        Also,  the  kernel 2.2.x version scripts are set up so that iptables is
        only run on a 2.4.x kernel, otherwise  IP  forwarding  is  disabled  if
        beforehand you set IPFWDING_KERNEL to FILTER_ON in network.conf.
        This  means  that  when you upgrade a box to a 2.4.x router kernel, you
        should then be able to reboot it and  log  into  remotely  and  upgrade
        netscript  to  the version that will support 2.4.x.  In this situation,
        if you have set old IPFWDING_KERNEL setting to FILTER_ON beforehand  in
        network.conf,  all IP forwarding through the box will also be disabled.
        This means that you can safely remotely upgrade a firewall.


        This    manual    page     was     written     by     Matthew     Grant
        <grantma@anathoth.gen.nz>,  for the Debian GNU/Linux system (but may be
        used by others).
        The author is lazy.  He needs to write btter man pages...
