Linux IPFire 2.15 Core 82 Was released

IPFire is a Linux distribution that focusses on easy setup, good handling and high level of security. It is operated via an intuitive web-based interface which offers many configuration options for beginning and experienced system administrators. IPFire is maintained by developers who are concerned about security and who update the product regularly to keep it secure. IPFire ships with a custom package manager called Pakfire and the system can be expanded with various add-ons.

Firewall changes

Disabling masquerading on local zones is now possible to configure on the GUI. If you have got public IP address space this can be used on one of the zones (for example DMZ) and the firewall will not need to NAT any packets at all. This functionality was requested by David Hauser from Technische Universität Wien (Vienna University of Technology).
Timo Eissler also contributed a fix for some Voice-over-IP devices that fail to register after reconnection of the Internet connection. All packets that are sent to the firewall will now be dropped until the Internet connection has been fully established and therefore false entries into the connection tracking table will be avoided.


  • pppd has been updated to version 2.4.7. This release fixes some seldom occurring crashes on some PPPoE connections that use MSCHAPv2 for authentication.
  • gmp has been updated to version 6.0.0
  • mpfr has been updated to version 3.2.1
  • Several fixes for the CGI scripts have been submitted by Dominik Hassler:
    • OpenVPN: The generated configuration files now contain correct line endings.
    • Active connections: IP addresses from the static OpenVPN address pools are now coloured correctly
  • Axel Gembe contributed a fix for correct validation of fully qualified domain names according to RFC1035.
  • Some coding style and minor bugs have been fixed in the ddns.cgi script.
  • batctl, boost, and tracepath are now shipped with the core distribution.
