Dear Michael, dear IPFire comunity,
I am a Dummie. I am (unfortunately) Windows based user, who however were able to install Hackintosh to several Laptops without posting dummie questions in Hackintosh comunities. The only post there was “Thank you” to author who provided step by step install proceedure.
Now my second chalange is to built from my 10y old i5 quad core pc a router with Samba, VPN client paid service and download manager.
Im almost there unfortunately not with IPFire, which was for me the most “intuitive” firewall software from all 4 (IPFire, PfSense, OpenWRT, DDWRT) I considered. The problem was to configure VPN Client paid service, for which I didnt find clear Dummie step by step tutorial…
That said I think your wiki is great help for people.
The problem I faced was a VPN Client paid service (I think its called net-net).
I wish I have the same menu on IPFire like on ASUS router:
Step1 Upload *.ovpn file
Step2 Fill Username and Password.
and voila VPN works
To make User firendly intuitive VPNClient tab woud be great.
Samba was understandable however I couldnt get it work the way I needed.
Every from my 4 Firewall software a VPN Client require a lot of configurtion steps which varies from forum to forum from user to user and I didnt find proper guide on IPFire Wiki.
I have found it at the end on IPFire forum, but it does not work well for me and I really needed to get it to work so I looked elsewhere and now Im using something which was much mooooore comlplicated than IPFire but the pages has Great user manual and Guides and with them I was able to get it work (without asking)
From my 20y experience in various forum Communities I learned that Admin reaktions varied. Some of them didnt respond the questions which were already answered and deleted the dummie posts, Some of them patiently answered evrery questons, some of them posted 1 warning, that if comes another dummie question they will be banned…
The way how you will treat Dummies is completly up to you.
I know how bothering dummies are. I hope I didnt bother you much with my post.
Just my 2cents
With all my respect to your work
