Unofficial E2guardian package for pfSense



  • @pfsensation
    Hi, I was busy past two weeks and I tried to install 2.4.4 again and I can see real time traffic. E2g is working except "weighted phrases". I went trough working configuration(2.4.3) and non working(2.4.4) and I couldn't see any difference.
    The only difference is in log,
    2.4.4 I have this error:
    Nov 25 20:47:12 e2guardian 97044 I seem to be running already!

  • @pfsensation ,

    Is there a progress on the content scanner fix ?

    I've already asked @marcelloc to have a look into it. He believes it could be an ICAP issue, I'm not sure if he's had a chance yet to try implement a fix.

    @pfsensation i leave all lightsquid settings as default (should be fine i guess) but when i try to configure squid and turn off its transparent proxy and mitm (this is interfering with e2guardian so...) lightsquid doesn't log anything.

    i dunno, maybe i need to make lightsquid listen to e2guardian ? anyways, i set my e2guardian to keep 20 log files.

    You shouldn't have transparent proxy on Squid anyways. Set E2 Guardian log format to Squid and make sure you install the custom Inc file so that light squid listens to E2 Guardian. It's higher up in this thread.

    Which ports are you running E2 Guardian on? Are you using other packages like pfblockerng?



  • @pfsensation
    Hi
    I am using default port 8080 in direct connect widhout squid, no transparent mode and fresh install, only E2g and sarg on VMWARE. Like I sad I vent trough working config step by step several times and I didn't find any difference, it should be something in E2g.

    Regards

    Which interfaces are you listening on? Make sure it's set to LAN and localhost. I run my system in VMWare ESXi without any issues.



  • @pfsensation
    Hi
    I have set to both, are you using "phase list" filtering.

    0_1543420915226_28_11.png

    Of course, I use black list and phrase list. Phrase based filtering is actually one of the core functions of E2 Guardian and what makes it vastly better than other systems like SquidGuard. I'm on 2.4.4 and haven't had those issues and doesn't look like anyone else has either. So I'd be interested to know why it would happen.

    Are you running just vmware work station or ESXi?

    Edit: put the HTTP workers up, I have mine at 3072.

    System working but e2guard access.log not working. I did port 8081, 8082; result same. Why?

    System working but e2guard access.log not working. I did port 8081, 8082; result same. Why?

    Can you check var/log/e2guardian/access.log and see if it's updating there?



  • Not update. New access.log zero byte. But when I restard pfsense system, e2guard log working.



  • And 3-4 days later again stop.



  • 0_1543990498177_0d335c3f-0fde-4caf-bc44-4c4d9ab236d0-image.png

    so far so good, the only problem i encounter is each day when sarg stops logging, i need to change time format to American or European then force refresh for sarg to continue logging. its a little hassle but still it works.

    0_1543990693231_ecea3ffe-6613-474f-89ae-e68a0dda3bb4-image.png

    btw, till now i still can't figure out how to use the Users tab on E2Guardian or do i need to use LDAP?, need help with this one thanks.

    what I've tried so far is to use PFSENSE\(Group name)
    (Group Name)\(Account Name)
    PFSENSE\(Group Name)\(Account Name)

    ^ Doesn't work

    Clear the logs file manually, restart E2 Guardian and let me know what you've got your log rotate settings set as. It's been brilliant for me and working without any issues.

    Although I personally haven't used that specific configuration, and I just use groups. You may need to enable a different authentication method to be able to use the users tab. What authentication method have you currently got enabled?



  • @pfsensation ah i see! I was only using local users lmao. I'll try to configure freeradius first, thanks for the info!

    Nothing yet unfortunately. @marcelloc Have you had a chance now to take a look at this problem?



  • UPDATE

    Hello folks,
    I´ve been testing E2Guardian+SQUID with SSO NTLM and it is working REALLY fine.
    There are some small/cosmetic issues, but at all, it's working fine.
    Issues that I could get so far:
    *The LDAP search group/users mechanism has some issues. It seems the script created by the package (see crontab) doesn't have the proper env setting. I tested it assing "sh -c" in front of it, and it resolved the issue.
    *The e2guardian service sometimes got stuck.the GUI start/stop/restart icons doesn't work and you have to kill the PID from shell console. It seems it's something related to the "save/apply" process after the LDAP update script runs. I am still investigating.

    The e2guardian is "really" better than "squidguard" - There is no comparison! Forget about squidguard,

    Hope that helps,
    Fabricio.

    Most of us have known or have come to know how much of a broken mess SquidGuard is. E2 Guardian filtering is much more advanced and granular.

    I suggest you report the issues on the E2 Guardian Github page for quicker response/fixes. Thank you for the update, and I'm glad you've got it working with LDAP!



  • @pfsensation hi there!

    It seems the issue is related to the pfsense package only (Web GUI -PHP code). There is nothing wrong with the E2guardian binary package at all, so, I could not report it at the e2guardian forum I guess.
    Anyway, YES, people should simply forget about squidguard... I am very happy and excited with the results of E2guardian as a Content Filter and etc.
    Still investigating the issues with the service/ldap package.

    Thanks!
    Fabricio.

    Sorry, I meant @marcelloc has his own Github page for E2 Guardian on pfSense issues.

    Can you share a screenshot of sso ntlm settings?



  • @susamlicubuk
    Sure. Here it goes.

    Keep in mind that I have it like: USER --> E2Guardian --> SQUID --> INTERNET
    I have SAMBA in the background (for NTLM)

    Here E2Guardian Config:
