Part 3 - Component Updates

For all that follows the same rules apply as written in the Introduction:

  • The main purpose of this part is to collect and describe several recommendable Component Updates regarding the Copfilter-Addon for IPCop 1.4.2x (abbreviated: V1) and 1.9.x/2.x (abbreviated: V2).
  • If problems occur during these updates, please open a new thread in the Copfilter-Forum or send us (karesmakro, severus, fischerm) a PM (Private Message) via Copfilter Forum.
    Any requests for changes or extensions will be taken in account.

Please note:

  • Some of the updates described are already included since Copfilter version 0.84beta5. Please read the Changelogs.
  • The line informations regarding code changes may not necessarily be *absolutely*, so always use search functions for text or code-passages.
  • This comes with absolutely no functional guarantees!

ATTENTION!

  • Extensive knowledge about the working(s) of the IPCop-Firewall and Copfilter in general, plus extensive Linux experiences are an absolute must for the updates and modifications that are described!
  • This is not for novices to experiment, you need to know what you are doing and what the consequences may be…
  • A full backup, a functioning restore, and the willingness to reinstall a defective IPCop-system are prerequisites!

ATTENTION!

  • This HAVP version is customized for use with AVG 7-Workstation-/Mailserver-/Fileserver-Versionen (with daemon).
  • Please do not use a newer version of AVG!
  • AVG 8.x and 9.x are not compatible with IPCop 1.4.x!
  • Higher versions as AVG 7.X won't run on IPCop version 1.4.er!
  • Only those who still have AVG7 commercial licenses can use them for the duration of the license.
  • If this is the case, please use the adjustments from the forum so that the signature download still work!
  • Therefore: Please don't buy new AVG licenses! AVG support for Copfilter is expected to end in the first Quarter of 2011!

Installation

Log in on the console as 'root' using a suitable client (ssh, PuTTY, …) and initiate the following commands:
(The code paragraphs contain always a single command line, the bold formatted words in angular clips in between are standing for the corresponding keystrokes.)

F-PROT is not installed using an arbitrary directory, but the Copfilter maintenance-script 'setup_util' in
'/var/log/copfilter/default/.

Both files - 'setup_util' and the F-PROT Archive - must reside in '/var/log/copfilter/default/'!


Change directory:

cd /var/log/copfilter/default

[ENTER]

Download F-PROT:

wget http://files.f-prot.com/files/unix-trial/fp-Linux-x86_32-ws.tar.gz

[ENTER]

Check MD5SUM:

md5sum fp-Linux

[TAB][ENTER]

ATTENTION!

1. If you own a F-PROT license this is the latest point to copy the file 'license.key' from '/var/log/copfilter/default/opt/f-prot/[old_version_number]' - otherwise it will be deleted. During an update the old F-PROT directory is removed!

2. The F-PROT-archive must not be extracted!

3. If everything went ok (Download ok?, MD5SUM ok?), you can start the maintenance-script 'setup_util'.


Using parameter -f the installation of the F-PROT archive is triggered.

./setup_util -f fp-Linux

[TAB][ENTER]

(Here: V1-Installation)

Check all outputs for errors!

Since they are no longer needed, the installation directories and the archives are now removed:

rm fp-Linux-x86_32-ws.tar.gz

[ENTER]

On the Copfilter Status page you can control whether the installation was successful (Screenshots show V1-version!):

On the Copfilter Anti Virus page F-PROT can now be switched ON and OFF, or you can trigger a manual update of the F-PROT signatures:

Notes

It's also possible to run IMAP login procedure in ssl mode (which I prefer and also successful running)!

There are only 3 easy steps to do:

Step 1:

  • Go to /var/log/copfilter/default/opt/tools/bin
  • Open DMZS-sa-learn.pl and at Line 39 add:
Ssl => '1',
  • Save and exit

Step 2:

  • Now open imap_run_now.sh from same location and delete the port setting :143 at Line 64 from
'${IMAP_SERVER}:143',/"    \
  • to
'${IMAP_SERVER}',/"    \
  • Save and exit

Step 3:

  • Now add mailserver port in Copfilter GUI → Antispam
  • eg.: mail.example.org:993 or internal network like: 192.168.2.250:993 (or any other port, if you want)
  • Activate “Skip Service Restart” and click on “Save settings (and restart)” button

After this modification you are ready for secure “Bayes Training”.
