    thanks, what are the dependencies needed for this package? i'm gonna test this and install manually all the dependencies first…

    try just lippcap if it works, I'll push a fix to install process on 2.0.x.

    amd64

    i386

  • thanks! will test later and post results…



  • very Thx For who made this package alive :) AND THX FOR PFSENSE ITS FREEEEEEEEEEEE :) AND VERY HELPFUL :)



  • about the libipcap: its there on 2.0.x: /lib/libpcap.so.7
    I have linked /lib/libpcap.so.7 to /lib/libpcap.so.1 and the binary from the v0.1 package is happy.
    so, you can either create the link when you install the package or compile the bin to use /lib/libpcap.so.7

    there are some issues with the webgui: sorting (moving things up or down) is not permanent and there are empty entries shown for previously deleted mac/ip address sets.
    otherwise, nice package! I hope it's still being worked on. :)



  • two more things I would like to suggest:

    1. drop root privileges (add '-s nobody' to the startup parameters).
    2. don't use '-u 300', instead send SIGHUP to the process to reload the config when the user clicks save.


  • I'll take a look on it as soon as time permits.



  • Hi,

    I have a problem with ipguard. I guess it is not working with DHCP. In my network, I have allocated IP addresses for WIFI clients ranging from 172.16.4.150-172.16.4.250 but when I run ipguard, wifi users can't obtain IP addresses. Can anyone help me please. Thanks.



  • Hello there,
    I'm Using Ip guard on my pfsense captive portal to to restricted user for change ip address, here's my scenario :

    –----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Internet ----------WAN (20.20.20.221/24)* pfsense (captive portal + Ipguard)*LAN (192.168.1.1/24) ---------------- client PC

    My ipguard rule :

    on wan 00:0c:29:ed:61:11 20.20.20.221 Pfsense WAN Interface
    on lan 00:0c:29:ed:63:1e 192.168.1.1 Pfsense LAN Interface
    on wan 00:00:00:00:00:00 20.20.20.0/24 WAN Net
    on lan 1c:65:9d:b9:4f:f5 192.168.1.90 PC Manager

    another my firewall rules:

    allow LAN & WAN to any rule

    I'm using dhcp client for another client, and mapping dchp static for special client


    my purpose is to block another client with dhcp to using PC manager Ip Address using static IP on 192.168.1.90

    the problem that i face is another user using dhcp client can use the PC manager Ip address with changing their ip address to static and using PC Manager Ip Address.

    How can I can create best ip guard rule with this situation?
    can anyone hel me. Thanks



  • Ipguard is great! Tried it yesterday and is really what I was looking for. I have a suggestion though. Say I have a network client that I want to restrict to a single IP but I want everyone else to get IP through DHCP on the same subnet. It would be nice if overlapping rules were supported and followed priorities. Example:

    00:00:00:00:00:00    192.168.0.0/24    Everyone is able to get any IP in this subnet
    00:0c:29:ed:61:11    192.168.0.150    This computer can only get this IP. So this rule has a higher priority than the first one.

    I tried configuring that way and it didn't work.

    As an alternate scenario I could try to register every single client's mac address but it really is a big annoyance. Hope the above could work.



  • @axaios:

    I was hoping you could describe what you are doing with it. I've tried using if several times and have never been able to get it to work the way I expect - I ended up creating custom IPFW rules…

    What I want:
      1.) allow dhcp to assign dynamic IP addresses (i.e. not turn on feature to deny unknown clients).
      2.) block all network access for any client that uses a statically assigned IP address.

    For example, my XBox gets a statically assigned address. If another mac tries to use the same IP address, I want to block them from the network. Is this possible? When I've tried this with IPguard (by adding the mac and IP of the XBox), the second client (stealing the XBox address) seems to work just fine.



  • I badly need in ipguard for old 2.03 pfsense. Where can I get it (as pfsense package)?
    Right now there is no ipguard package in the list of available packages.
    Thanks in advance.



  • Some news regarding removed packages from 2.3: https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/2.3_Removed_Packages . I also regret that ipguard was not included in pfSense 2.3.
