Installation & Requirements
To install and run this software requires:
* iptables - Commands for setup Linux's low level network filtering
Read the file called INSTALL for generic instructions about using cmake to install software.
After running 'make', a few more steps are needed to correctly install Guidedog.
The Guidedog script at /etc/rc.guidedog needs to be run each time that
a network interface goes up (enabled) or down (disabled). Most Linux
have two directories to control this:
These work much like /etc/rc.d/*. Any scripts (or symbol links to scripts)
get executed when a network interface goes up or down. So to have Guidedog
run we can add some links. First make sure that a file exits at
/etc/rc.guidedog . Run the command (as root):
echo "#!/bin/sh" > /etc/rc.guidedog
Now create some links in the ifup.d and ifdown.d directories:
/bin/ln -s /etc/rc.guidedog /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup.d/51guidedog
/bin/ln -s /etc/rc.guidedog /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifdown.d/51guidedog
When a network interface goes up/down the Guidedog script should run. You can
check you boot message logs and look for a message from Guidedog.
Needless to say, but if you can use a prepackaged Guidedog for your Linux distribution then do so.
