System Prep

  • apt-get install tcng xtables-addons-source xtables-addons-common nbtscan linux-headers-$(uname -r) automake libtool libfile-tail-perl libtext-trim-perl libdatetime-format-mail-perl libnet-sslglue-perl
  • Note: as of Apr2014, tcng must be installed from wheezy (update sources.list && apt-get install tcng/wheezy)

Configure Traffic Control

Install and Configure Bandwidth Accounting and Reporting

  • m-a prepare
  • m-a a-i -t xtables-addons-source
        1. NOV7/2014 - build fails. $(ln -s /usr/src /tmp/buildd); $(m-a a-i -t xtables-addons-source); let it fail; $(cd /usr/src/modules/xtables-addons; ./configure; make; make install)
  • echo xt_ACCOUNT >> /etc/modules
  • modprobe xt_ACCOUNT
  • depmod -a
  • vi /root/scripts/
  • crontab -e
    • 9-59/10 * * * * PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin; /usr/bin/perl /root/scripts/ <= Note: on large networks this can take a few minutes to run, and it needs to complete it's data collection before 00:00, so you may need to set it to start at 58 or 57

Finalize IPTables Configuration

  • vi /root/scripts/iptables-restore
  • iptables-restore < /root/scripts/iptables-restore
  • iptaccount -a <= Make sure these three lines show up:
    Found table: wan
    Found table: computerisms
    Found table: pubaccess
  • From worklian:
    • telnet 25 <= Make sure you can telnet to ports 25, 80, 443, 587, 993, 995


  • Aug30/2014 => module-assistant fails to build xtables-addons. after it fails do:
    • cd /usr/src/modules/xtables-addons/
    • /bin/bash build-aux/missing autoconf
    • ./configure
    • make -j1
    • m-a a-i -t -O xtables-addons
