    Dansgardian

    Hi everybody ...

    Ive started playing with Ubuntu and dansgardian ....

    A question that someone may be able to help with is :
    does a linux/dansgardian/squid box need 2 network cards? IE one for incoming traffic and one for outgoing traffic or can the system use one card for both ...
    Sorry if this is a bit basic

    Cheers for now and Merry Christmas

    No.
    Last time I checked Ubuntu had a problem with Winbind, specifically with wrong permissions on /var/run/samba/winbindd_privileged. Have a look if it still does as this will cause you problems. I've actually just set this all up on Debian yesterday. Used the squeeze repository so that I got the latest version of samba so that it can work with Server 2008. No problems at all.

    OK thanks for that ... I'm still at very basic level with all of this ... Ive managed to install Ubuntu and Dansgardian+squid and am at the steep learning curve stage !!!

    So if I read it right the incoming requests from the workstations to the box and the outgoing requests to the internet from squid all route though a single nic?

    Ah yes I hadnt thought of that .... I assume default route is the same as default gateway? That makes perfect sense .....
