Search ?



  • How can I search the forum for my own posts ?



  • Click on the top-middle search icon :

    or click on the top right icon, your "avatar" :
    29a14ca6-bf37-4042-aa95-e2e06764f69b-image.png

    You could also use any web search engine, like site:forum.netgate.com bgroper



  • @Gertjan
    Thanks for reply.
    I'm laughing at self because if I can't remember how to do this, I'll not be able to search for your answer. :-)
    Ah, the joys of ageing.



  • I made my two images "clickable" ;)

    You can do it !



  • @Gertjan
    Thanks for the encouragement.
    Now I just wish I could post a new question about OpenVPN.
    Sadly I keep getting the akismet annoying pushback. D'oh.
    Any clues or workarounds to bypass that irritant ?

    Do not copy-paste URLs like https://www.somesite.tld/somwhere but break it up like

    https:// www dot somesite dot tld slash /somwhere

    When you need to show an image, just copy the image first (Ctrl-C) past it in your message using (Ctrl-V).

    Post first just the text, as you saw that works just fine.
    Then, edit your post using :

    068901f5-2e99-46eb-b15a-fecd1db0f962-image.png

    and (try to) add more details.

    You will be able to post without limitations as soon as you earned your 5 reputation points. I gave you one already just now.



  • @Gertjan
    Thanks, one down, four to go.
    I wasn't trying to include any links or images.
    Just a cut-n-paste of a paragraph of text describing my question/s regarding OVPN.
    Actually, back in the day, I was a moderator on the (old) IpCop (also originally based on m0n0wall) forum.
    So I understand why, and am quite sympathetic to the efforts to push back the spammers.

    This forum protectio system (Kismet ??) is also using a list with known 'no-no' words.
    Like admin root vpn etc etc etc. Not only sex viagra etc
    Make them look like r*ot admin vpn etc and you'll fool the protection.

    edit : I've been using M0n0wall and IpCop for a while., somewhere in the beginning of this century.
    Like you said : ageing ....
