How do I install the Calamaris add-on?

  • Copy the tar archive via SCP to your IPCop or SmoothWall box. Windows users can use WinSCP for this. Keep in mind that SSH must be enabled and you will have to use port 222 instead of 22.

  • Login as root on the console or via SSH. Windows users can use PuTTY for this. Extract the tar archive with the command

    tar -xzf distribution-calamaris-version.tar.gz

    (Replace distributionwith the name of the distribution you have installed - either ipcop or smoothwall - and replace version with the version number of the package you have downloaded)

  • Start the installation with the command

    distribution-calamaris/install

That's it.

I have further questions. Can I send you a mail?

Meanwhile I'm spending more time on answering mails rather than working on the code. For this reason, I provide no more free email support!

However, if you need support, send me a mail with a detailed description of your problem and the statement that you need paid support. I'll contact you for the next steps.

Possible bug reports, feedback and contributions are always welcome to m.sondermann@directbox.com
