This lesson explains how to change the GREEN IP Address from the Endian Console.
Change the green ip address from console
Management URL: https://192.168.0.15:10443
Green IP: 192.168.0.15/24
2) Change Root Password
3) Change Admin Password
4) Restore Factory Defaults
Welcome to Endian Firewall Appliance release 2.5-0 (Deployset #0)
[endian] root: bash
When connecting to the serial console you see a menu like the one above. From the console menu type 0 to gain access to the Endian shell, then type login: you will be asked to insert your root password (which by factory settings is set to endian).
When you are logged into the Endian shell, type bash to access the bash shell. To change the default GREENIP you need to edit the file /var/efw/ethernet/settings with nano text editor:
bash-3.00# nano /var/efw/ethernet/settings
Change the GREEN_ADDRESS to your preference like in the example below, in which not only the Endian GREEN IP but the whole green subnet is changed. When finished, press CTRL+o to save the modified file and then press CTRL+x to exit from the editor. Finally, type reboot in the bash to restart your Endian UTM Appliance with the new settings for the GREEN zone.
You see the factory default:
That you can change e.g., to:
- File /var/efw/ethernet/settings is empty or it does not exist: This can happen before the configuration of the zones has been done. In this case, simply add the GREEN_* variables (with suitable values) plus the GREEN_DEV=br0 variable to the file, then reboot the Appliance.
- I experience errors when connecting, but the file /var/efw/ethernet/settings appears correct. You should make sure that the file has owner nobody:nobody, i.e,
bash-3.00# chown nobody:nobody /var/efw/ethernet/settings
No help at all. In Endian 2.5 that file only contains
That file is emply only before configuring the zones, so you probably don't have yet configured the green zone. Simply add the GREEN_* variables plus the GREEN_DEV=br0 variable.
Make also sure that the file has owner nobody:nobody (use chown nobody:nobody /var/efw/ethernet/settings)

If the firewall has just been installed and the network wizard has never been triggered the settings file doesn't exists.
In order to have the default file you have to copy from default location and then edit it:
cp /usr/lib/efw/ethernet/default/settings /var/efw/ethernet/settings
endian does not recognize my network card? Hellp
