Core update 157
Hello to all! I am new to this forum and also new to IPFire, but I just love IPFire a lot even using it for just a few days already. I absolutely love the IPS capability that can run on a tiny SBC although I it is only for my own project and low traffic uses.
I installed IPFire successfully (well, blue interface still not appeared) and the red0, green0, IPS, firewall, watchdog, all running fine.
However, whenever I power down/reboot the Nanopi-ri, the red0, green0 interface will change the mac addresses differently than previously configured in the IPFire network admin interface, so the start up message will show red0 and green0 not exists
I digged into varies discussions including:
- hardcode the mac addresses in /etc/network/interfaces config file
- add ethaddr=xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx to the uEnv.txt in the boot partition
they all seems not resolving the mac addresses changes issues.
I now have to permantely open the box in order to access the debug UART (I cannot access the front panel UART even by changing the console=ttyS1/S0) and config the mac address in the network interface so this box cannot be turned off, use it as portable firewall.
I really appreciate any help and shredding some lights to my little problems. Thanks a lot in advance!
