FreePBX Firewall "could not get banned list"

(Mmgg) #1

After installing the firewall module on FreePBX 14 I cannot get it to run. The wizard always crashes with the error “could not get banned list”. I read that the FW requires sysadmin rpm to be up to date. I’m not quite sure if I understand what sysadmin rpm is but yum update sysadmin doesn’t update anything and yum list sysadmin shows
sysadmin.noarch 5.6-5.6.28.sng

So I assumy that the sysadmin module is up to date.

I also tried fwconsole chown which didn’t help.

Any ideas what’s wrong here?

Thanks very much!

Is this the FreePBX distro, if so, why not install FreePBX 15?

Try the following:

fwconsole ma upgradeall
fwconsole chown
fwconsole reload
yum update -y

Why would I install FreePBX 15? This is marked as stable.
I have a feeling that FreePBX is really poor quality so I don’t trust any upgrade.

15 is the latest stable, 13 and 14 will likely become EOL once 16 becomes stable.

The commands I provided are module and rpm updates, it won’t update you to 15.
Anywho, if you don’t trust FreePBX, then why install it? Just so you can troll us?

If you are setting up a new system now, it should be using FreePBX 15. Your sysadmin rpm is out of date, current version from 14 is:

[root@ucc-74657009 ~]# yum list sysadmin
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, versionlock
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
Installed Packages
sysadmin.noarch                  5.6-5.6.47.sng                   @anaconda/2011

I ended up setting up a new system on FreePBX15. Here the firewall is working.

I still have that old system running and I wonder how I can get the latest sysadmin rpm.

[root@pbx2 ~]# yum update sysadmin

Ok, the problem is still not quite solved by moving to FreePBX 15. When I open Connectivity/Firewall it says Firewall is enabled but when I click on Status I get an exception “Firewall is not running”.

Seems like i’m still missing something :/.
