First off, sorry…I can’t see how to post here other than as a reply to an existing post.
I have been using the IPfire Mini Appliance for about a year without any problems. But the other day, in the process of relocating the box, I lost connection to it. Unfortunately my unit came with no documentation and I have not been able to connect to it again. After hours of frustration (googling gives no results on configuration topics) I reset the unit. However I still cannot connect and nowhere have I found what the default IP address and ports are for initial configuration. I have tried the usual 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.1.1 but still no joy. Is there somewhere a manual, howto, or configuration step-list. I don’t remember having this problem out of the box - plugged it in and it just worked.
Also, there are no port labels. I assume that looking at the rear of the box, the Ethernet ports are by default RED, GREEN, BLUE, and ORANGE from left to right, since any other combo doesn’t seem to work My unit has an installed WIFI card which I was using on BLUE). Also there is no documentation on what the blinkenlights mean (other than the obvious power on). I need help on this or it goes into the fail bin. Thanks.
