#8812 new defect

/etc/init.d/siproxd is not recognizing(parsing) wan and lan interface, config file is not in /etc

Reported by: webmaster@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Chaos Calmer 15.05
Component: packages Version: Backfire 10.03.1 RC4
Keywords: siproxd Cc:


after installing the siproxd package, i faced the following problems to get siproxd to work:

/etc/init.d/siproxd seems to be outdated and is not recognizing the wan and lan interfaces.

The configfile /etc/config/siproxd is not parsed correctly.

In my case i was putting it like this:

config siproxd general

option if_inbound 'br-lan'
option if_outbound 'pppoe-wan'

As the result siproxd was starting up and was not able to handle any request because its listening to interfaces that are not existing.

I worked around it by manually editing in the /etc/init.d/siproxd file:

@@ -116,14 +113,8 @@
         include /lib/network
         config_load /var/state/network
-        if [ -n "$IF_INBOUND" ]; then
-                config_get IF_INBOUND "$IF_INBOUND" ifname
-                printf '%s\n' "if_inbound = $IF_INBOUND" >> /var/etc/siproxd.conf
-        fi
-        if [ -n "$IF_OUTBOUND" ]; then
-                config_get IF_OUTBOUND "$IF_OUTBOUND" ifname

         /usr/sbin/siproxd --config "$CONFIG_FILE"
