    Default File download

    Hi... I used UT server to browse and download AVG virus update. I'm having a hard time where to get the file. I have seen it saved somewhere in desktop but no idea how to fetch it.

    Thanks!

    why on earth are you using the UNTANGLE box as a desktop browser and downloading anything??

    use a desktop for a desktop and let untangle do its thing. you should NOT be using it as a desktop

    I've done what the OP is asking, it's really quite easy and if you need to disinfect a box and Untangle is the only machine around... can be handy.

    However, manually mounting a pen drive is NOT something we can really discuss on these forums. That's a class, a hand holding session. Something that I can teach you in 10min if you were here physically with me, but the screen captures and video instruction required to do that over the Internet? Too much on volunteer time... sorry.

    Ok, I'll be helpful here.

    The method for mounting a USB stick on untangle is the same for Untangle as it is for almost any linux distro.

    Insert the USB stick.

    run
    Code:
    dmesg
    the last few lines of output should talk about inserting some USB device with information about the device name and partitions.. It will be something like /dev/hdc1.

    run
    Code:
    mount /dev/hdc1 /mnt
    where the /dev/hdc1 is whatever dmesg spit out.

    you should now be able to copy to /mnt (maybe, it depends on how the USB stick is formatted, if it's FAT or one of the FAT variants, you should be good to go..

    But really, don't browse the Internet from your Untangle.
