netbase (4.03) unstable; urgency=low
* /etc/services: Added lotusnotes service (1352/tcp,udp). IANA name is
"lotusnote" for some reason. Added former as an alias to the latter.
(Closes: Bug#67778)
* /etc/services: Added x11 ports (6000-6007/tcp,udp).
* /etc/services: Added xtelw (1314/tcp). (Closes: Bug#66705)
* /etc/services: Added pcrd (5151/tcp). (Closes: Bug#61117)

* /etc/services: Added swat (901/tcp).
* /etc/services: Added xfstt (7101/tcp). (Closes: Bug#58457)
* debian/control: Depend on one of ipfwadm, ipchains, iptables instead of
both of ipfwadm and ipchains. Only suggest one of ipautofw, ipmasqadm,
iptables instead of depending on both of ipautofw and ipmasqadm.
* debian/templates: Added Italian translation, thanks to Eugenia Franzoni.

netbase (4.02) unstable; urgency=low
* Correct "smb" to "smbfs" and add a -q to grep in /etc/init.d/networking.
(Closes: Bug#65412, Bug#63288, Bug#65384, Bug#64360).
* Remove dependency on iputils-tracepath. Nothing should be relying on
that anyway.

netbase (4.01) unstable; urgency=low
* netkit-ping is standard, iputils-ping is optional: netkit-ping should
therefore be listed first in the Depends: line or apt-get doesn't
do the right thing.

netbase (4.00) unstable; urgency=low
* The great netbase split. netbase is now Debian native.
* Split into:
ifupdown, ipautofw, ipchains, ipfwadm, ipmasqadm, iputils, net-tools,
netkit-base, portmap
netkit-base builds netkit-ping, netkit-inetd and netkit-rpc. iputils
builds iputils-ping and iputils-traceroute.
* hosts.allow and hosts.deny moved to the tcp-wrappers package.

netbase (3.18-4) frozen unstable; urgency=low
* The ``I'm an idiot'' release.
* preinst: Add a `mkdir -p /etc/network' so that cat'ing to
/etc/network/interfaces (eg) doesn't die horribly. Makes upgrades
from slink die. (Closes: Bug#62958)
-- Anthony Towns <> Tue, 25 Apr 2000 01:53:23 +1000
netbase (3.18-3) frozen unstable; urgency=low
* frozen rationale: This fixes the somewhat important bug 62538, and
reduces the severity of the critical bug 60898 to normal. It also
introduces some new functionality into ifupdown, but does so in
a way that shouldn't affect existing functionality if the changes
are faulty. Various other bugs fixed too.
* /e/n/interfaces: Move sample to /usr/doc/netbase/examples, where it
can be looked at by new installees as well as upgraders. Make it not
a conffile. (Closes: Bug#62538)
* /e/n/interfaces: Add pre-up/post-down examples. (Closes: Bug#61266)
* /e/n/interfaces: If not present, autogenerate a commented out loopback
IPv4 definition in preinst.
* /e/n/options: Make this not a conffile, and autogenerate it from
preinst too.
* /etc/init.d/inetd: Die quietly if inetd isn't available.
* /etc/init.d/netwoking: Die quietly if ifup isn't available.
* /etc/init.d/networking: Correct check for / as an NFS mount.
* /etc/init.d/networking: Don't take networking down if there are
still any NFS/SMB mounts about. (Reduces Bug#60898 to normal)
* ifupdown: Add `provider' as an option for pon/poff in ppp method.
Thanks to Itai Zukerman for the patch. (Closes: Bug#62476)
* ifupdown: Make the IPX family a little tidier. Thanks to Chris
Pimlott for suggestions and a patch. (Closes: Bug#62644)
* ifupdown: Added some other options for IPv6.
* ifupdown: Act on all stanzas for an interface, not just the first.
(Closes: Bug#62628)
* README.Debian: Added. Mentions some stuff. (Closes: Bug#61616)

netbase (3.18-2) frozen unstable; urgency=low
* inetd: For internal services that fork, close everything but
stdout/stdin, and make those point to the ctrl socket and so on
(as per usual exec()), and reset `ctrl' to 0, so you can still use
ctrl legitimately. After this upgrade, inetd isn't vulnerable to this
denial of service attack. During it, it is, but that's difficult to
* init.d/inetd: Instruct start-stop-daemon to consider the inetd pidfile
authoritative when trying to start inetd. Both these fixes are necessary
for: (Closes: Bug#60770)
* init.d/networking: Fixed typo. Ooops. :) (Closes: Bug#61395)
* ifupdown: Actually *do* the early abort that all that code was there
for. (Closes: Bug#50064)
* ifupdown: Get rid of "dhclient" in the `kill' command.
(Closes: Bug#61269)

netbase (3.18-1) frozen unstable; urgency=low
* The "What? We're in a freeze? Let's make as many changes as possible!"
release. (Subtitled: The "Sorry 'bout this, Richard..." release)
* netfilter: No longer included even in the .orig.tar.gz. It's actually
been this way since 3.17-1. (Closes: Bug#54815)
* ifupdown: New upstream release (0.5.5).
* ifupdown: Added pre-up/post-down commands
* ifupdown: Correctly kill dhclient (Closes: Bug#58734)
* ifupdown: dhcpcd-sv has been (kind of) merged into dhdcpcd. (Closes:
Bug#58924, Bug#60097)
* ifupdown: Document /etc/network/interfaces (thanks Joey!) and make
ifup(8) and ifdown(8) more informative too. (Closes: Bug#58680, Bug#60419,
* init.d/networking: Move rc{0,6}.d S-links to S35, giving plenty of room
for killing programs using NFS mounts, and umounting NFS devices and
so on. Needs sysvinit changes to actually be particularly useful, but
still. See Bug#60898. (Closes: Bug#59282, Bug#59286)
* init.d/networking: Check for NFS (or SMB) mounted /, and never shut
down of the network if present. (Closes: Bug#60374)
* /e/n/interfaces: Clarify some of the comments (Closes: Bug#58951,
* init.d/inetd: Check for rpc services in inetd, then check the
portmapper, to avoid needless pauses/errors even if localhost is down.
(Closes: Bug#58951)
* templates: Give more information on format spec of the "What IP
address/ranges?" question. (Closes: Bug#55664, Bug#49548)
* templates: Changed the init.d/network deprecated message to be a bit
less scary.
* config: Only display upgrade messages when *upgrading*. I have no
idea what I was thinking when I wrote that bit of .config.
(Closes: Bug#59083)
* postinst: Actually delete the /etc/init.d/netbase symlinks when using
* postinst: Remove the "[kludge]" note about stopping debconf. The
kludge itself is still there, though.
* preinst: Apparently I didn't actually remove the inetd.conf
denial-of-service checks from the preinst like I said. (They're in
the postinst now). Fixed that.
* control: Added a Conflict: against libwrap0 versions 7.6-2 and 7.6-3,
which are disgustingly buggy. (Closes: Bug#58916)
* update-inetd: Clarify the xinetd warning. Thanks to Josip Rodin.
(Closes: Bug#60666)
* ping6: Correct "unkown" misspelling. (Closes: Bug#56132)
* net-tools: Fix some hwtype structure misdeclarations in
lib/*.c. (Closes: Bug#59377)
* pmap_dump: Made pmap_dump use the address, rather than
the result of get_myaddress. This is to cope with broken firewalling
setups that try to firewall out the loopback interface, and make the
machine unreachable from itself. (Closes: Bug#60517)
* ipmasqadm.8: Added a `this manpage has tables' code at the top. Thanks
to Craig Small.

netbase (3.17-1) frozen unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream bugfix release of net-tools. (Closes: Bug#55011)
(Differences against upstream: got rid of pr_str typo in lib/tr.c)
* New upstream release of ifupdown (incorporates changes from
previous netbases, adds a manpage). There shouldn't be any
semblance of a need for nowebm for rebuilding anymore.
* postinst: The first bit of the postinst is executed twice if debconf's
running. This causes problems for people running slink (ie, using
an old netbase that doesn't stop portmap), who don't have psmisc
installed (and hence don't have fuser, and hence can't kill portmap,
and hence the second run isn't a no-op), because debconf redirects
all the echo's to itself, and doesn't understand them. Got all that?
Thanks to Adam Heath and Joey Hess for noticing the problem and
finding the solution.
* etc/network/options: Created options file for configuring spoof
protection, IPv4 forwarding, and SYN cookies. (Closes: Bug#46579)
* init.d/networking: Made SYN cookies not default. (Closes: Bug#57909,
* Added Build-Depends line.
* ipautofw/ipautofw: Remove i386 binary for .orig.tar.gz
* ipautofw/Makefile: Make the binary depend on the source.
* etc/network/interfaces: Remove ALPHA warnings. (Closes: Bug#58019)
* Take a little more care when matching services.
Thanks to Paul Slootman for the patch. (Closes: Bug#56251)
* debian/templates: Clarify spoof-protection question (wrt 2.0 kernels).
(Actually did this in 3.16-10) (Closes: Bug#51657)
* debian/templates,postinst: Add a note about /etc/init.d/network and
/etc/network/interfaces, both via debconf and as comments into
/etc/init.d/network. (Closes: Bug#47378,Bug#56883)

netbase (3.16-10) frozen unstable; urgency=low
* init.d/networking: Add S15networking links in runlevels 0 and 6 (halt
and reboot) so DHCP and kin are given a chance to die nicely before
being killed. (Closes: Bug#49817)
* Also moved portmap to rcS.d and rc[06].d (41 and 10, respectively).
* preinst; Removed daytime/udp etc question from preinst, moved it to
postinst, so it should only get asked once now.(Closes: Bug#54009,
* postinst: Make sure the debconf and non-debconf halves both do the
same things. (Closes: Bug#57321, Bug#57199)
* init.d/networking/Enable SYN Cookies at boot time, if they're compiled
into the kernel. (Closes: Bug#43402)
* netkit-base/ping: Got rid of the `timestamp_check' stuff.
* cron.daily: Switch to /bin/sh rather than /bin/bash. (Closes: Bug#50525)
* etc/services: Added font-server 7100 (aka, xfs). (Closes: Bug#50886)
* etc/services: Added ndtp 2010/tcp. (Closes: Bug#51119)
* etc/services: Added ipp 631. (Closes: Bug#51956)
* etc/services: Addes kx 2111/tcp. (Closes: Bug#54183)

netbase (3.16-9) frozen unstable; urgency=medium
* Make ifup/ifdown use dhclient/pump/dhcpcd/dhcpcd-sv for DHCP,
depending on kernel version and/or what's actually installed. This
is important for boot-floppies. (Closes: Bug#56020)
* Fix up -n option (which is missing from getopt(), tsk), and correct
the --help display. (Closes: Bug#56910)
* Remove the m68k-doesn't-have-glibc2 kludge, since it now does
have glibc2. (Closes: Bug#56940)

netbase (3.16-8) unstable; urgency=low
* iputils/ping6.c: Did local defines of clear_bit, set_bit and test_bit,
so it no longer needs to include asm/bitops.h. Hopefully this'll fix
it for arm and powerpc. (Closes: Bug#46642,Bug#47522)

netbase (3.16-7) unstable; urgency=low
* Fixed bashism in .config (Closes: Bug#50608, Bug#50675)
* The infinite looping seems to be fixed in debconf (>= 0.2.34). Added
a Conflicts: to help with this. (Closes: Bug#50920, Bug#50545,
* Added a missing ||true in .config which seems to be the remaining
debconf bug! (Closes: Bug#50968, Bug#50977)
-- Anthony Towns <> Sat, 20 Nov 1999 07:14:12 +1000
netbase (3.16-6) unstable; urgency=low
* Update debconf-isms. Should fix the weird crashes and loops on installing,
as well as debconf's random whining. (Closes: Bug#49565, Bug#50369,
* Added ircs service (tcp/994) for SSL wrapped IRC. (Closes: Bug#49848)
-- Anthony Towns <> Thu, 18 Nov 1999 17:45:14 +1000
netbase (3.16-5) unstable; urgency=low
* Remove perlism from postinst. Considering postinst is a /bin/sh
script, this seems wise. (Yeesh).

netbase (3.16-4) unstable; urgency=low

of the error handling. Thanks to Ian Jackson for the report and
patch. (Closes: Bug#45515), (Downgrades: Bug#45944)
* /etc/init.d/networking: "$LOCAL_IPS", not "LOCAL_IPS". Oddly, I seem
to have corrected this locally, but not in the source. Weird. Thanks
to Kurt Starsinic for the report and patch. (Closes: Bug#45793)
* /etc/init.d/inetd: Change usage string to refer to init.d/inetd
instead of init.d/netbase. Also changed description from `base
networking daemons' to `internet superserver'. (Closes: Bug#45923)
* postinst: Cope with `hostname -i' failing. (Closes: Bug#45860)
* debian/rules: Get ipmasqadm docs from the right place.
* TODO.Debian: Update it a bit
* Include arping (ARP ping) from iputils. (Closes: Bug#43911)

etc. Should now actually let you view the non-English pages.
* ifupdown: (debian/rules) touch the various generated source files
so that noweb isn't mistakenly required because patch doesn't
preserve timestamps. (Closes: Bug#43817)

init.d/netbase -- they should mess with init.d/inetd instead

* New upstream version: ipchains-scripts 1.1.2 (was 1.0.2)
* Now includes netfilter; but only in the source package for the time
being. (So I don't know how to compile it yet. Sue me)
* Split TCP wrappers to its own packages (libwrap0, libwrap0-dev, tcpd).
This creates a shared library (and accompanying -dev package) for
TCP wrappers, links the various binaries to that library, adds a
dependency from to, hopefully compiles
better on HURD now, and adds a reference to hosts_options(5) in the
hosts_access(5) manpage.

* /etc/init.d/netbase: Removed.
* /etc/init.d/inetd: Created /etc/init.d/inetd which handles stopping and
starting inetd.
* /etc/init.d/networking: Created networking startup file: rcS.d,
priority 40 (just after /etc/rcS.d/S40network). Sets up spoof
protection and runs `ifup -a' on start, and `ifdown -a' on stop.
/etc/init.d/netbase now does nothing but start and stop inetd.

* /etc/network/spoof-protect: configuration file to encourage people to
actually get spoof protection to work. (Closes: Bug#17424, Bug#39265)
* postinst: Added opportunity to configure /etc/network/spoof-protect.
* preinst: As well as complaining about chargen and echo, complain about
time/udp and daytime/udp also. (Closes: Bug#17424, Bug#39265) (Yes,
these two bugs got fixed in two different ways.)
* copyright: Rearranged the summary in the copyright file and listed
the authors, since they are the copyright holders after all.
* /etc/services:
Changed name of pop-2/pop-3 (109,110/tcp,udp) to pop2, pop3, with
pop-2, pop-3 as aliases. (Closes: Bug#42108)
Added rmiregistry (1099/tcp) service for Java (Closes: Bug#42346)

destination is down. Thanks to Michael Herrman. (Bug#36432)
* iputils: Applied patches to fix some buffer overflow problems. Thanks
to Topi Miettinen for finding and fixing the problems.
