#1907 assigned enhancement

easier initial installs

Reported by: jogger Owned by: sadie
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.9.36
Component: installer Version: 0.9.28
Keywords: network install Cc: Meeh
Parent Tickets: Sensitive: no

Description

to promote 24/7 installs and provide easier access to remote machines the installer (at least for headless installs) should ask for hosts allowed to access the router. This information currently resides in multiple configuration files.

if the machine is detected to be on a private subnet, the installer script should default to enable access to console, tunnels, apps etc for this subnet with the option for the user to override by individual addresses. (network prefix/address for ipv6)

This way the user could directly start working with the console after the install without fiddling with multiple config files.

Not a bad idea, but one that could be difficult to implement due to the distributed nature of our bundled apps and interfaces. Not sure if the installer is the right place either, but a console config page might be easier.

Might be a feature very people would use though, so cost/benefit could be high.

For people sophisticated enough to be doing remote installs, I'd expect them to be doing their own configuration settings and distributing those in some automated way.

Just to note,the I2P router console works on a network, it is not easy to allow only a few hosts to that network (thats the task of a firewall, not I2Ps part).
So, setting all configs would be a nice feature, but fiddling with firewalls is nearly impossible for I2P (esp. on different systems).

str4d is working on a setup wizard, on the roadmap for 0.9.31, perhaps this would help
