Updating firewall breaks VPS
The default firewall installation defines PUBLIC_IFACES="eth+ ppp+ slip+"

Virtuozzo's VPSs use virtual interfaces called venet1:1 (for example).

I managed to get the firewall working by changing the definition to PUBLIC_IFACES="venet+ eth+ ppp+ slip+"

Now, however, whenever I make changes to the firewall settings through ISPConfig, the PUBLIC_IFACES value is reset. Is there some place I can redefine this to include venet+ ?

I'm planning on grabbing the CVS repo some time soon (as soon as I've got my server running smoothly) and will start submitting suggested patches to make ISPConfig work smoothly on a VPS setup.

Hi Ben,

the templates for many config files and also for the bastille firewall script can be found in the directory /root/ispconfig/isp/conf/. The name of the basatille master template is bastille-firewall.cfg.master If you do your changes there they wont be overridden anymore.
