Install order: Dansguardian + Squid3 + Snort (?)



  • 2.0.2-RELEASE (amd64)

    I keep doing something wrong… I currently have Dansguardian (2.12.0.3 pkg v.0.1.7_3) and Squid3 (3.1.20 pkg 2.0.6) installed.  When I try to enable Snort (2.9.2.3 pkg v. 2.5.4) everything comes to a halt.  I'm thinking I have an issue with the install order.  What is the preferred method/order to installing all three packages?  Do I configure each package after installing, make sure it works, then install the next package or do I need to install, configure and enable the packages all at once?

    Thanks.



  • try snort -> dansguardian -> squid



  • Hello marcelloc,
    Thank you for your assistance.
    I've installed Snort, configured it, and it is running.
    I tried to install Dansguardian but the installation process seems to get stuck at:

    Checking Dansguardian Blacklists... One moment please...
    Found previous blacklist database, skipping download...
    

    Nothing happens.  I've let the system sit for about 10 minutes and no change.  Do I have to manually delete some files and then retry the install for Dansguardian?

    Thanks



  • delete /usr/local/www/blacklist.tgz



  • /usr/local/www/blacklist.tgz does not exist. (?)

    I do have a blacklist.tgz at:
    /usr/local/etc/dansguardian/lists/blacklist.tgz
    /usr/local/pkg/blacklist.tgz

    Thanks.



  • So I delete /usr/local/pkg/blacklist.tgz then try to do a package reinstall.  Snort then stops working and pfS thinks the package is installed but it does not show up in the Services menu but it is visible under Installed Packages.



  • First install and configure Squid. Then install Snort and ensure the config is working. Reboot is recommended. Once you confirm everything is working.. in the end install Dansguardian.



  • Is there a preference as to whether I install Squid3 or Squid?

    Thx.

    EDIT:  So far so good.  Squid3 and Snort are installed, configured, rebooted a few times, and it's still working.  I'll try Dansguardian a little later tonight.

    EDIT2: And it's a no-go.  When I try to install Dansguardian I get:
    Checking Dansguardian Blacklists… One moment please...
    Found previous blacklist database, skipping download...
    so I delete /usr/local/pkg/blacklist.tgz and then I get:
    Checking Dansguardian Blacklists… One moment please...
    Fetching blacklist

    and it freezes.  How can I specify which blacklist to initially download?  I have a feeling I've downloaded the bigblacklist.tar.gz too many times (URLBlacklist.com) this week and their SQL server is now freezing me out.   ???

    Thanks



  • Is there a log I can look at that will help me ascertain the cause of the freeze during install of Dansguardian?

    thx

    thx

    ping…

    Any ideas, anyone, on how to get past the freeze/stuck when installing Dansguardian?  It will get stuck if there is a blacklist already on the system (from a previous install attempt) or not.  Any fresh install or even a re-install will result in a stuck or freeze situation.

    Thank you.



  • just do a clean install of pfSense. Then install Squid, after that Snort.. reboot and install Dans



  • Alright. Painful as it was I did a fresh, clean install.  Installed squid (not squid3), then snort and finally Dansguardian.  I also  rebooted between each package install.  The Dans GUI didn't show up on the webconfigurator menu so I then reinstalled the GUI portion.  All good now.  Thx for the assistance.
