Installer is ready

After hours of trying to preseed the Debian installer i got the results i wanted. The text based installation is ready now, but for the graphical one i had to start Gimp and swing the brush 🙂 The installation process is reduced to the minimum to allow everybody to install OMV. The only interaction to be done is to set the hostname, a static IP address if DHCP does not work and finally  select the harddisk used to install OMV. Voila, after some minutes OMV should be on the harddisk and ready to use.

While playing with the new firewall WebUI i found out that it is crap because the user is not able to rearrange the rule order. Because of that i had to rewrite the UI the next days to get this working.

Firewall and configuration backup/restore features finished

Step by step the todo list gets smaller. Today the firewall WebUI and backend has been finished. Please note that firewall feature is only designed as client firewall. Everything else should be done by a real router/firewall appliance.

Also the configuration backup/restore feature has been implemented. Now it is possible to create a configuration backup and restore it later.

Add SNMP v3 support

After having some time today and because i do not do things by halves i implemented SNMP v3.

Add SNMP service

Today i added generic SNMP support. The MIB tree can be retrieved only, no write access. Currently only the protocol versions v1 and v2c are supported. If someone needs v3 he is free to enhance the code when it is released.

Update manager WebUI

Additional to many under to hood improvements i have implemented the WebUI to manage the package updates.
