How to – Fix the firewall on Vicibox10
So there is a major problem with Vicibox10 where the VB-firewall when used, will totally lock you out the system and I finally figured out how to fix the problem. Its rather simple actually and I hope this helps all of you out there that have been wanting to try Asterisk 16 on Vicibox10.
Step 1 – Edit the VB-firewall file
We need to edit the VB-firewall file at /usr/bin/VB-firewall
- nano /usr/bin/VB-firewall
- scroll down until you see $IPBLACK=’blacknets’; # IPSet blacklist IP and change it to $IPBLACK=’dynamiclist’; # IPSet blacklist IP
Step 2 – Run the Vb-firewall with the whitelist and dynamic list
- /usr/bin/VB-firewall –dynamic –white
The first time you run this command you may get an error, make sure to run it again as you see below:
Step 3 – Change the crontab entry to dynamic list and whitelist
### ViciBox integrated firewall, by default just load the VoIP Black list and reload it every 4 hours
### You can lock everyone out of your server if you set this wrong, so understand what you are doing!!!
@reboot /usr/bin/VB-firewall --dynamic --whitelist=ViciWhite
* * * * * /usr/bin/VB-firewall --dynamic --whitelist-ViciWhite
