Infoseclabs part II

Now that the server hardware is put together, I needed to set up and configure my firewall.

 

I found a great article Ben Miller wrote on installing OpenWRT onto a raspberry pi http://computers.tutsplus.com/articles/installing-openwrt-on-a-raspberry-pi-as-a-new-home-firewall–mac-55984, which worked wonderfully for me.

 

I configured my Raspberry Pi, which I named PiWall, to be a cascaded router on the AT&T modem/router.  I had purchased a block of 5 static IP’s as well for e-mail, web servers, sftp, etc.

 

Here I gave the PiWall a DHCP reservation on the modem

I set up the PiWall for DHCP on the WAN interface and gave it 192.168.50.1 for the LAN.  I picked 192.168.50.0/24 for the IP scheme on the LAN interface.

 

Having picked my IP scheme I went on to set up the firewall with some basic rules, which included egress filtering.

It was now time to start setting up VMWare.  I made a bootable USB stick and started the installation.
