Hi Frank, please use English on this site!

Translation/explanation of the issue: after a crash vuurmuur_conf gives the error: vuurmuur_conf: Error: empty or corrupted pid file: '/var/run/vuurmuur.pid' (in: get_vuurmuur_pid). (-1)

Response:

The file vuurmuur.pid contains only the pid's (process ids) of 'vuurmuur' en 'vuurmuur_log' is used by vuurmuur_conf to make contact with those daemons for 'apply changes'.

To solve this error, take the following steps:

/etc/init.d/vuurmuur stop

This could give a error or warning message, but that can be ignored. Make sure the daemons are really closed:

kill -n INT pidof vuurmuur kill -n INT pidof vuurmuur_log

The iptables rules will remain active as Vuurmuur doesn't remove them on exit. Next remove the pidfile.

rm /var/run/vuurmuur.pid

Start Vuurmuur again:

/etc/init.d/vuurmuur start

That should solve it!
