Coyote Linux & BrazilFW firewalls are based on modular system of packages. You can download and install aditional packages and configure system to suit your needs. There are many packages available out there. Through time i have also created some packages which are available in packages section of this website. Every package has to be installed before using it. If you use floppy based distribution it's quite easy to install new packages, but it can be harder to install them if you are using HDD or Compact Flash drive.
If you are using floppy disc as your boot device, your task is quite easy. All you have to do is...
Your task is little more difficult with HDD or Compact Flash based BrazilFW distribution. Also look at Remote package install how-to because with this configuration it's easier to install packages over network. But of course it's also possible to install them locally if you don't have remote access or you don't want to install over network. You will need floppy drive and one clean formated 3.5" floppy for local package instalation.
Copy installed package to blank formated floppy disc.
You can logon either locally or remotely through ssh, it's possible to use both options. If you logon loacally, please exit configuration menu by using "q" option. You should now see command prompt
You will copy installed package to temporary location on you coyote linux in this step. First mount flppy drive to /mnt
brazilfw# mount /dev/fd0 /mnt
The floppy should be mounted now, you can see what files are there...
brazilfw# cd /mnt brazilfw# ls scp.tgz
In this situation there is only one file names scp.tgz, and it's secure copy package. We will copy this file to it's temporary location to /tmp. Subtitute scp.tgz with your installed package name.
brazilfw# cp /mnt/scp.tgz /tmp/scp.tgz
Now when the file is copied, unmount floppy drive
brazilfw# cd .. brazilfw# umount /mnt
We will mount boot device in this step (assume you have system instaled on IDE primary master) and copy package to boot device root directory.
brazilfw# mount /dev/hda1 /mnt brazilfw# cp /tmp/scp.tgz /mnt/scp.tgz
Now when the package is in it's final location we can unmount boot device and reboot router for changes to take effect.
brazilfw# umount /mnt brazilfw# reboot
