Processes running from status page.



  • Hello,

    I'm running 1.0.1 on a Soekris box and under the status page there is an entry for processes which lists "nfsiod" as running. I understood that NFS and Firewalls were a bad mix. I know that nfsiod deals with a client process, but why have it at all on a firewall box?



  • nfsiod?

    Maybe I'm thinking too paranoid or have been reading up on the wrong stuff. Perhaps someone could tell me what services could or should be run on a firewall? In what scenario could I safely mount and use remote file sytems on a firewall. Would cifs be better than nfs?



  • I'm now running this snaphot:

    FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE #0: Thu Jan 25 16:36:19 EST 2007
        sullrich@builder6.pfsense.com:/usr/obj.pfSense/usr/src/sys/pfSense_wrap.6

    and don't see nfsiod running anymore. Any comments to this or earlier posts would be appreciated.
    Also another question - if I save my config, reflash should the RRD graphs be reinstalled with the original config when "All" is selected for the backup options?

    many thanks for a great fw

    RRD-Graphs are not stored in the config.xml so you'll lose this information on backup and not overwrite this information on restore.
