• Using a Pi as a firewall

    From MeaTLoTioN@1337:1/101 to All on Thu Aug 19 08:37:29 2021
    Hey y'all,

    The other day someone in another of my circles asked about secure OS's on a Pi, and I gave a link to the OpenBSD for arm64 to them, and it got me thinking.

    I wonder if anyone has set up a Pi to be a firewall. It would run as a firewall great I reckon, the only draw back would be the single network interface, however that could be overcome with the use of vlans.

    In OpenBSD the firewall application called "pf" is pretty much the defacto when it comes to enterprise level opensource firewalls in my opinion, and I think it would make a great firewall in any environment, not just in enterprise type setups.


    Aside from running BBSes, what else do y'all run your Pi's to do? I got 4 Pi 4B's here, and I had installed ESXI on them, but since then I haven't really done anything with them... they look cool in their cluster case but I really need to make use of them properly.

    i dont know about that, but i use ufw for its easy handling as my
    standard linux firewall.

    Aside from running BBSes, what else do y'all run your Pi's to do? I
    i have a Raspberry first generation running tor service to provide that
    to the home network via proxy. And one Pi4 for the current bbs and one
    Pi3 for OSMC, Sonarr and nzbget.
    i am happy with brave browser for ad blocking, but i could imaginge
    running pi-hole for network-wide adblocking. maybe i could get rid of
    youtube ads on mobile and xbox that way ;)

    Howdy,

    I wonder if anyone has set up a Pi to be a firewall. It would run as a firewall great I reckon, the only draw back would be the
    single network interface, however that could be overcome with the use of vlans.

    I've wondered if the Pi would be OK for a firewall - I have doubts about its network performance though. (Only because I havent researched it).

    Run it ESXi - you can give it as many network interfaces that you want, but I guess that would impact performance even more... (And yes, I guesss you still need to use a VLAN..)

    Aside from running BBSes, what else do y'all run your Pi's to do? I got 4 Pi 4B's here, and I had installed ESXI on them, but since
    then I haven't really done anything with them... they look cool in their cluster case but I really need to make use of them properly.

    Yeah, I've got 2 Pi 4's but they are not in use at the moment.

    I did have them running all BBS stuff, but then I setup a door game server and used Windows, since that was more successful then dosemu. So the BBS stuff is running on a APU1D (also under ESXi).

    My Pi 3+ is a retro gameboy that my son has (in a Waveshare Game Hat) - I should get that off him and play it...

    I've wondered if the Pi would be OK for a firewall - I have doubts about its network performance though. (Only because I havent researched it).

    I wondered the same, the NIC on a 4B is 1Gbps but I don't know if realistically a Pi can achieve a full 1Gbps - when I try I will know and share the info if no one else does before hand.

    Run it ESXi - you can give it as many network interfaces that you want, but I guess that would impact performance even more... (And yes, I
    guesss you still need to use a VLAN..)

    Ah not a bad shout, I wonder if the OpenBSD image is an ISO or a IMG, I had issues figuring out how to use the IMG file as it's not a bootable image, it's a clone of a disk... never really spent much time on it though.

    Ah sounds nice, is that similar to what Paulie420 has? I think his is called something like the Pi-boy or something. Looks amazing anyway.

    You know how 'smart' I'm not, mL - but ... Jeff Geerling does a lot of testing and the Pi CAN do 1Gbps... theres also 'OpenWRT' thats a slimmed down pfSense type software...

    Another route is to get a Pi 4 Compute Module, and a backplain [small, Pi sized] that has PCI... then you can plug any PCI net card in and... viola.

    It IS capable, but.. it IS also an Arm SBC. They are awesome... its CAPABLE - but the shortcomings, yes. Checkout OpenWRT - I think YOU'LL instantly know more about it than me. :P

    PS, I'm getting the 'normal' 30Mb/sec NAS speeds thru my NFS on a Pi 4 now... I love them for what they are. NOW, if I picked another SBC or... my new server, with faster PCI HDD connections... the Pi has a few bottlenecks is what I mean to say.

    And yea, my PiBoy DMG is specially built PCBs that does what I think Deon has built using his own different HATs. I really love it - and have modified the Raspberry Pi OS to fully work on it; so not only do I have the Gameboy/MAME/C=/Amiga games - I have a Linux box, Pi 4 powered, thats fully portable. I love it.

    I've got a Pi running Pihole as a network wide add blocker it also
    is my networks DHCP server and it runs Wireguard VPN server. Whenever
    I'm out and about my Android phone will automatically connect to
    the VPN.
    Another PI is my networks NTP server which is disciplined by a PPS (Pulse Per Second) signal provided by a GPS locked oscillator.
    I have a dedicated Pi just for Amateur radio digital modes. I've used
    Pi's in the past dedicated just for monitoring our Allstar (Amateur radio use of Asterisk) Network. Also I'm using one as my media player (KODI) connected
    to my TV. Yet Another Pi is an audio recorder that records all conversations
    on our local amateur radio network. All done with bash and spectrograms
    created with SOX
    Oh and I'm using a Pi instead of the "big" computer system when the temperatures get out of hand and I need a cooler solution ;) to
    keep the ambient temp down in here. That one happens to run my
    gopher server as well

    I guess you can say I'm a fan of those little guys

    I have wondered about this recently too. I was going to use a combination of ufw and snort for intrusion detection as a firewall. I have an old laptop I
    can use, but an rpi should be good enough. I was thinking about using a USB etnhernet adapter to provide one of the interfaces for clarity of delineation.

    Just spitballing at this point. Haven't done anything of substance yet...

    Yes it is a nice little unit - and the RetroPi looks really good on it. Probably similar to the Pi-boy too.

    For the 1980's games, it performs well as well.

    I bought an SD card off of Amazon, and it came with 10,000 ROMS - although there are many versions of the same game in different languages - so it's way less than 10,000, but still enough to have fun on.

    I bought an SD card off of Amazon, and it came with 10,000 ROMS -

    Wow 10,000 ROMS, that's enough to play 1 game a day for 27 years and 5 months, give or take!

    Ah I see, is _every_ game like that, or just some? Sounds really great though none the less.

    Actually, I must admit, I've not *actually* checked that there were 10,000 - the Amazon page said there were.

    The other thing to remember with these kind of advertising, is that it has the same game for different machines. So Super Mario for many Atari models, C64, Amega, etc...

    One day I'll get around to cataloging it and then I'll see how many I actually have :)

    Aside from using VLANS (which I'm not a fan of in this use case - sharing uplink and internal comms), you can always use USB 3.0 if the throughput isn't too high.

    Another option that I think would be interesting would be to either mod the device to get access to the PCIe bus and run a traditional dual-port 1GB card directly, or get the Compute Module with an appropriate breakout.

    I don't currently own a Pi4. I've got an original Pi-B running as an ssh jump box, and a couple of Pi 2Bs running miscellaneous things as needed. (SPI programming, etc).

    If you follow Jeff Geerling on YT, he recently linked to a MicroATX backplane for four Pi4 Compute Modules or Jetson Nanos, with an integrated managed switch and shared power via an ATX connector (a pico-PSU would drive it adequately). Here's a link to the blog post: https://turingpi.com/turing-pi-2-announcement/

    Aside from running BBSes, what else do y'all run your Pi's to do? I got

    Time lapse camera. A Raspberry Pi can run off of one of those cell phone chargers, like the big batteries with USB ports in them. What this means is I can drop one in a wilderness area and it will capture stills from about 24 to 30 hours, depending on temperature and the battery I use. This is usually sufficient for my projects.

    You posted elsewhere about the built-in Python HTTP server. There used to be a lightweight server called boa, which is no longer developed. I used to use that on the Pi to create a simple web interface for whatever I was doing or had to monitor.

    I'd find a nice spot, drop the Pi and battery. Then, I'd use the hotspot capability on my cell phone before plugging the Pi in. The Pi would power up, connect to my cell phone, set its clock via NTP (since it is now connected to the net via my cell phone, if I'm in range of cell phone towers).

    But then it would run the boa web server. I could use the browser on my phone to connect to it. I'd see the most recent shot (to check camera orientation), remaining capacity, and I could SSH in and run a menu to set things like "stop capture if between these two times" which I'd use to avoid capturing while it was dark (prolongs battery life).

    This worked extremely well with the v1 cameras. All of the photos I have taken with multiple v2 cameras have turned out grainy for some reason. I have not had time to mess with the camera settings.

    I found out that a simple Tupperware bin with a hole cut in it would sufficiently weatherproof it to capture, say, snowfall.

    (I don't actually expect anyone to watch these - they are not exactly thrilling, but in case you're waiting for something to compile):

    Here is the Pi in action in Flagstaff, Arizona. Flagstaff is in northern Arizona, which is a high elevation and is not desert. I left it overnight in a forest, and there was a nice snowfall.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WgXKzaT0XiI

    Here is a video in the old mining town of Bisbee, Arizona. The first part is driving through the town on a dashcam I had, but the second part is taken from the deck of the Air BnB we rented. Winter weather (this was New Years 2017):

    https://youtu.be/1nortqc8Paw?t=93

    The overlay text is via GraphicsMagick/ImageMagick, which composites text on stills from the command line (in case you've never used it).

    A tropical depression. Someone in the UK was producing rain-proof cases for the Raspberry Pi - nice metallic ones, which they don't anymore. This allowed me, for a time, to stick it right out in the middle of rainstorms.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WM7XOURFSb8

    One of my photographic hobbies is finding sources of water in the Sonoran Desert. It can go more than a month without rain here, and water is scarce, so it is of particular interest. Tucson's Santa Cruz river used to run year round, but unregulated diversion in the Old West days destroyed it. It is in the process of being reconstituted. I wasn't aware of water releases into the river from a local treatment plant (the water is close to, but not quite, drinking water quality), and I am glad the sudden river rise didn't sweep the Pi away!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BneQ5fmTvEY

    More rain, this time from my parents' back yard in Tortolita (near Tucson). Those are the Santa Catalina mountains which rise about 9000 feet above sea level, one of four ranges that surround Tucson.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdIkD8VDKp0

    I got kind of experimental with the compositing. I was able to fetch a weather map and overlay it on the image so you could watch the skies and weather map in real time, along with humidity and temperature. This is a typical summer monsoon from my back yard, facing West. Weather is nuts here. The extreme heat of the day and then sudden temperature drop at night creates a cycle of evaporation and dispersion during the day, then condensation at night as the temperatures drop.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jT0jdMjIaI

    I have had a few Pi's hosed by animal attacks (rodents knocking the thing over then chewing the cable to the battery), and several violent storms. It's great how cheap they are but I remain unhappy with the case options which are rarely targeted toward weatherproofing *plus* a camera port. Fortunately, the Tupperware bin is a good workaround.

    I need time to get those v2 cameras working right.

    That's it currently. I have a couple of extra 3s and a Zero W for future projects and a 3b with a touchscreen I was going to use in my car. Ended up buying a kenwood head unit so I will figure something else for it eventually.

    Howdy! Richard,

    A question - I see in this message that You wrote: "HA gear" and
    "kenwood head unit".

    Is that used for operating a Amateur Radio station or something about
    Pi's?

    I'm not a Pi user, I have only used Windows XP, 98SE, 95, 3.1 and
    Commodore 64 PC's, and know nothing about Pi and the accessories
    used with it.

    I lurk in many echos.

    When I saw the TAGLINE in Your message about the Fat Lady, I thought
    about the Fat Lady DOES get to Sing at the BEGINNING of a Baseball
    Game instead of waiting till the end of the Game.

    Thanks, 73 (Best Regards) de (From) Ed W9ODR dit dit.

    Aside from running BBSes, what else do y'all run your Pi's to do? I got
    4 Pi 4B's here, and I had installed ESXI on them, but since then I haven't really done anything with them... they look cool in their

    The Kenwood head unit is the stereo in my car. Used to use a tablet and then was going to use a Pi with a touchscreen but opted for the Kenwood.

    HA is for Home Automation. Something I've been doing since the mid 90s or so.
