    Default virus blocker with debian

    Hello everyone

    I tested utangle and the functions in the free versions are good. But utangle needs 800MB RAM in my testvm. If I am right, utangle is based on debian.

    Does anyone know, how utangle makes all this functions on debian, for example the virus blocker. I think if I can make the same functions on a tiny debian without the webgui and other stuff, I can safe RAM but have the same functions.

    Does anyone know, how utangle technically works on debian? How its build up on debian with clamav etc. For example just the function virus blocker.

    Cheers

    Debian+Clamav is not = Untangle.

    you will not be able to reproduce what untangle can provide with a debian install without some serious dedication to a project. as dwasserman said, Debian+Clamav doesnt not = untangle...

    you are thinking about this the wrong way.

    Yes I know, but I don't need all the functions of untangle ;-).

    I mean, at the moment untangle is a black box for me. Untangle can block viruses, but I have no idea how it works technically in Untangle.

    I think Untangle uses a lot of other software for example clamav or a proxy. So I can use this software too and make my own built operating system, which doesn't use 800MB RAM (but it wouldn't has all the functions of Untangle).

    Is there any documentation, how untangle works inside to provide the functions?

    Don't worry, the target is not to create another operating system like Untangle to provide it to someone else...

    You can test a basic rack in untangle with only a few app instaled, but to be honest, time is money, add more memory to your vm envoirment.

    Yes, add more RAM would be easier... but I would like to learn something and I am interested how it works behind. For a user, Untangle is perfect, for someone interested in technical and someone who as time, not. ^^

    So is there a good documentation of the inside of Untangle?

    Also, surely you wouldnt ask these types of questions in an Untangle forum

    Try a Debian / Linux / Clam forum!
