  2. unpack the archive with the command 'tar -xvzf Vuurmuur-0.5.68.tar.gz'
  3. enter the directory Vuurmuur-0.5.68
  4. Now run the install script: ./ --install --defaults (this will use the default locations, /etc/vuurmuur for the config /usr/bin/ for the binaries, /usr/share/vuurmuur for misc files and /var/log/vuurmuur for logs)
  5. After some waiting you should get a success message.


To install Vuurmuur as a service copy the init script from e.g. "/usr/share/vuurmuur/scripts/" to "/etc/init.d/". To add and autostart the service type "chkconfig --add" and "chkconfig on" Then start Vuurmuur "/etc/init.d/ start"

At last you should install the logrotate skript. Simply copy /usr/share/vuurmuur/scripts/vuurmuur-logrotate to /etc/logrotate.d/
