Hello! I am a new IPFire user. Installed ipfire-2.25.x86_64-full-core142. Everything went smoothly, but during the initial setup I did not see two very important and one critically necessary setup:
Important: 1) I want to configure the link aggregation in the home network - combine 2 network interfaces into one, 2) I want to set the operating system to RAID.
Necessary: in order for the network to work, I need the ability to manually specify the MAC addresses of network cards (at least in the red zone).
Another point - choosing IPFire with the idea of complete control over the equipment, I noticed that without my explicit instructions the firewall is trying to reach out (this is just what I noticed on the command line without connecting to the network and additional tricks) to the 0.ipfire.pool.ntp.org site.
In connection with these issues:
- How to specify the desired MAC ?
- Means for RAID and link aggregation ?
- How to gain control over your equipment, which is designed so that no one gets into where it is not necessary without my permission? In other words, how should I act, starting from the installation, to be sure that the system designed to protect my network will not fly away the information before it is installed?
