Firewall Addons for ipcop

The addons server for ipcop is the best way to install dansguardian content filtering. It is called copplus in this context. There are many versions of danguardian installers available on the Internet, and installing an improper version can cause serious compatibility problems with ipcop.

To install, get the Addons installation file to /tmp on the ipcop machine.

From an ssh terminal (the version number in the file name may change):

cd /tmp

tar vxzf addons-2.3-CLI-b2.tar.gz

cd addons

./addoncfg -i

Download the copplus installation file to your local computer. On the IPCop administration page, click on the ADDONS tab, and choose ADDONS. In the bottom section, click on Choose File and choose the copplus file you downloaded, and click Upload. Copplus is > 10MB, so it will take a while. Be patient. It says a reboot is not required, but it was for my system to begin working properly.

Now the kids are safe from google!
