Hello all,

Mostly inside the rc.firewall script I use to autodetect the NIC ip addresses by:
Code:

EXTIP="`$IFCONFIG $EXTIF | $GREP 'inet addr' | $AWK '{print $2}' | $SED -e 's/.*://'`"
## or
EXTIP="`$IFCONFIG $EXTIF | $AWK /$EXTIF/'{next}//{split($0,a,":");split(a[2],a," ");print a[1];exit}'`"


I've noticed after a fresh install of SMS64 2.0.5 that ifconfig has changed it's answer format.
A quick workaround is to use:
Code:

EXTIP="`$IFCONFIG $EXTIF | $GREP 'inet addr' | $AWK '{print $2}'`"


I have to mention that the basic firewall script I use, is rc.firewall-iptables-stronger ver 0.88s from tldp.org
