    Guessing this is using the Server edition, not the Dektop edition?

    Yes but I have found it better and to add the desktop you just apt-get install ubuntu-desktop and its there. I like to decide what to install Can do a desktop version if you like. but that way i only need one ubuntu disc and if i want a desktop i can put it on simple. But most of the stuff i work with I use server and remote to it.

    Re: ubuntu How to on WIKI

    How goes your work on the guide.

    I recently started work on this as a side project myself. I had it all set up and working with the version 2.8 of dans guardian from the repositories but upon trying to enable authentication I discovered that requires version 2.9 which needs installed from source and its all gona a bit pete tong from there

    I think I have everything configged right but the startup script seems to have an error. A step by step guide would be handy. On the bright side I've learnt loads about Linux the last couple of days doin this and enjoyed it.

    I had a similar problem and used ident as a service on the clients and it just works.

    No problems.

    Re: ubuntu How to on WIKI

    OK please can I have a guinea pig or 2 to try out the how to ubuntu done and webmin done I know they are very basic but they are meant to be simple see what you think dansguardian is on the way. Any comments good bad or ways to improve please pm me as i don't want this thread filled with thing like you spelt webmin wrong. I still want to know if i have just pm me. There are screen shots but due to restrictions on wiki at the moment I cant put them up but am looking of a way around that. All comments will be taken note of and implemented if its possible.

    I'll have a go for you. If I set the machine as you instruct - then hopefully should make the install of DG according to your guide run smoothly

    Re: ubuntu How to on WIKI

    Another guniea pig reporting in.

    I'd already done a fair bit of trial and error learning myself with 7.1 server but in the intrests of consistency when I follow your guide for dansguardian I went through you 6.01 + webmin guides today and all seems totally fine. You have a little bit of repition in it static IP near the end of the server one and open-ssh repeated in both but it doesn't hurt to rerfesh the ssh part I think. Clear and concise guide thank you. I look forward to following the dansguardian one.

    Will you be doing dans guardian with AD integration or with ident for user based logging and filtering? I've been experiementing with AD integration with varying results myself. In cluding a hilarious mess up I related earlier were I had the linux box authenticating its own local user logins via AD

    Re: ubuntu How to on WIKI

    I will start with the easy one Ident as i can do that one at home and then i will also do ad integration as I will do this at work. I have also been told to do a linux updated version so after i complete all this it will be back to the drawing board for newer versions of ubuntu. I know I have nothing better to do and this is keeping me busy and i love it.
