For posterity sake, this is what worked (please correct me if I'm adding 
something that is incorrect or potentially dangerous). On sys-firewall, I 
added this:
sudo iptables -I FORWARD 2 -s 10.137.0.0/24 -d 10.137.0.0/24 -j ACCEPT

Then, on each qube I want to allow network access, I added this:
sudo iptables -I INPUT -s 10.137.0.0/24 -j ACCEPT

It seems to work just fine. Thanks for your help, unman!

Sorry for the top-post. I always forget that about Google Groups.

The command you listed:
iifname "vif*" oifname "vif*" accept 

Is that a proper iptables rule, or are there placeholders in there that I 
need to change specific to my system? Since iptables syntax is rather 
unclear to me, I want to be sure before I go running things in my 
sys-firewall. Shouldn't it be something like this?
sudo iptables -A FORWARD -i "vif*" -o "vif*" -j ACCEPT

Then, in each one of my client qubes, I would run something like this:
sudo iptables -I INPUT -i "vif*" -j ACCEPT

If you could help me get the syntax right, that would be *super* helpful! 
Thanks!

Re: [qubes-users] Full networking between VMs

2020-03-17 Thread arthur . summers
Qubes is the only well-maintained type-1 client hypervisor that exists as 
far as I know. I tried XenClient earlier in the decade, and it was an 
awesome product in my opinion. However, it ceased development.

I think my use-case could be accomplished via iptables rules, but as I 
mentioned, I've never been very good with those rules and don't use it 
enough to have become proficient. This page is a good starting point and 
specifically mentions my use-case:
https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/firewall/#enabling-networking-between-two-qubes

However, rules have to be added to sys-firewall *and* each VM on a per-IP 
basis. I would think there is a way to add a rule to sys-firewall that 
would open networking between all VMs by using CIDR blocks. Yes? No?

For those still concerned with security, it would always be possible to 
have two sys-firewall VMs: one to provide the default isolation and one to 
allow networking between systems. That would be a great setup, but I just 
don't know how to do it.

[qubes-users] Full networking between VMs

2020-03-16 Thread arthur . summers
My use-case for Qubes is largely to help segment my work/personal systems 
as well as allow me to run VMs for development. That second part is a bit 
of a challenge, though. By design, whenever I spin up a new VM, I have to 
explicitly allow ports between the VM and my existing systems. I 100% 
understand why this is the case from a security perspective. However, for 
my use-case, I'd like the sys-firewall to behave more like a traditional 
hypervisor like ESXi.

With full acknowledgement that my question goes against the default 
security principles of Qubes, what firewall rules would I need to configure 
to allow full networking between my VMs? By no means am I an iptables guru, 
so I need a little help . . .

Thanks!

[qubes-users] Convert template-based VM to standalone?

2020-01-08 Thread arthur . summers
Say I have a template-based VM, and I want to "fork" it to be standalone so 
that it's no longer based on the template. I know I could just create a new 
standalone VM from a template and copy files over from my home directory . 
. . but is there a way to just convert the existing guest from 
template-based to standalone? Is there something I could run from the 
command line?

Thanks!

2019-12-18 Thread arthur . summers
So, I managed to get the instructions to work (albeit with a few 
modifications - I'll post them when/if I can figure out the GApps issue). 
However, I'm having issues whenever I try to include and compile GApps. I 
can confirm that Android-x86 will build successfully on its own, but when I 
include GApps in my device.mk, I get a lot of these after every GApps app 
build:

End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not a 
zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the latter 
case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on the last 
disk(s) of this archive.


I then get these for each app before it all fails:

Unable to open 
'out/target/product/x86_64/obj/APPS/PixelLauncherIcons_intermediates/package.apk'
 
for verification


I've got the complete log, my device.mk, etc, but does anyone know what's 
up?

Are the instructions in the first post edited and updated, or are there 
more recent instructions which should be used? I'm personally interested in 
an image with GApps (I downloaded the nogapps ISO and tried to somehow 
install GApps, but to no avail - I wasn't sure if the image provided up 
near the start of the thread was functional). If there are updated/verified

[qubes-users] Overriding Spectre/Meltdown mitigations?

2019-08-11 Thread arthur . summers
My use case for Qubes is less security-focused and more 
separation/compartmentalization of systems-focused. If XenClient was still 
a thing, I'd be using it. I even tried to hack at ESXi to get X11 running 
and maybe use it as a client hypervisor, but no luck.

That said, while I take security seriously, I also weigh it against things 
like risk and performance. I recently upgraded my BIOS to take care of an 
issue I had with my fans going at 100% after resuming from suspend:
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/qubes-users/hkj5BkR8Z8E

Here is the BIOS I flashed:
https://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04/drivers/driversdetails?driverid=MJ0KC=W732=precision-m6800-workstation

However, the new BIOS appears to allow kernel modules that address the 
Spectre/Meltdown vulnerabilities to run . . . and WOW, did my system get 
slow. Running updates on one of my templates resulted in the VM crashing 
repeatedly and never successfully updating. VMs are regularly taking up a 
large percentage of CPU. I added the nospectre_v1, nospectre_v2, and 
nospec_store_bypass_disable kernel parameters, and that seemed to help 
somewhat, but I have two questions:

   - In GRUB, do I add those kernel params to the multiboot /xen- line, 
   the module /vmlinuz- line, or somewhere else?
   - Are there other modules that I could disable to improve performance?

Obviously, I completely understand that this is not recommended and goes 
against the purpose of Qubes as an OS, but from a risk perspective, I'm 
willing to take the trade-off for a bit of extra performance.

Thanks!

Re: [qubes-users] Re: Changing the clipboard shortcut in 4.0 doesn't work

2019-08-11 Thread Andrew "Arthur" Summers
. . . I need to turn over my MS in Information Systems and my BS in
Computer Science. I don't know how I overlooked that - probably because
I've been doing PHP for the last few years, so I only notice // and /**/ as
comments? Sigh . . . I'm sorry for being a bother . . . Thanks, though!

Re: [qubes-users] Re: Changing the clipboard shortcut in 4.0 doesn't work

2019-08-10 Thread arthur . summers
Sorry - I don't use Google Groups enough, so I just hit "Post Reply" 
assuming that it would be smart enough to put the reply in the right place.

I looked at the XFCE keyboard shortcuts and window manager keyboard 
shortcuts, and Ctrl-Alt-c/v aren't in use. There might be another place to 
look, but those are the main ones off the top of my head. However, I'm not 
sure if this is a window manager issue since the keyboard shortcut is 
controlled by the Qubes Clipboard program (qui-clipboard).

I don't know enough about the Qubes internals to trace how it picks up the 
setting from /etc/qubes/guid.conf (and why it isn't accepting my values 
after I changed them). I tried doing a recursive grep to find any other 
places where the default shortcut may be set, but it got a little 
mind-bending.

I'm happy to provide more details from my system, though - my fingers just 
really want to use my custom shortcut because they've been confused ever 
since I upgraded. ;-)

[qubes-users] Re: Changing the clipboard shortcut in 4.0 doesn't work

2019-08-03 Thread arthur . summers
Any thoughts, here? My fingers are trained to use "Ctrl-Shift-c" and 
"Ctrl-Shift-v" for copying from the terminal and pasting without 
formatting, and it's getting to be quite bothersome that I can't change 
this shortcut using the instructions in the docs. I'd really like to figure 
out what's up.

Thanks!

[qubes-users] Re: Fans at 100% after resume from sleep; laptop gets VERY hot

2019-08-03 Thread arthur . summers
Interesting - I would have thought that this was a Qubes-y issue:
https://askubuntu.com/questions/948025/high-fan-speed-after-suspend-only-on-ac-16-04

I haven't tried updating my BIOS, but just now, I tried doing this in dom0:

sudo sh -c "echo auto > /sys/bus/pci/devices/:00:1f.[X]/power/control" 
(where [X] represents every device pointer in that directory - it differs from 
system to system)

Worked like a charm . . . for now, at least.

As a follow-up because I see this has been asked at-length both here an on 
GitHub: I tried changing this to "Ctrl-Alt-c" and "Ctrl-Alt-v" in 
/etc/qubes/guid.conf (using that syntax and capitalization EXACTLY). Is my

[qubes-users] Changing the clipboard shortcut in 4.0 doesn't work

2019-07-24 Thread arthur . summers
I prefer to use a different shortcut for the Qubes clipboard because 
Ctrl+Shift+V is an existing shortcut for "paste without formatting" in most 
applications. However, I've tried editing /etc/qubes/guid.conf and 
restarting my VMs (I actually restarted my whole system), but no luck. I 
figure something changed now that the clipboard is a standalone 
application, but I'm not sure what needs to be modified.

Thanks!

[qubes-users] Fans at 100% after resume from sleep; laptop gets VERY hot

2019-07-18 Thread arthur . summers
This was an issue on 3.2 and still on 4.0. My system runs just fine normally, 
but if I put it to sleep, the CPU and GPU fans run at full, and my laptop gets 
rather hot. Looking at top doesn't show anything unusual, and none of the VMs 
are suddenly using a lot of CPU. I'm not exactly sure what's up.

I'm gonna necro this. I'm on 3.2, and I have the same problem. I actually 
couldn't get Remix to boot, so I used vanilla Android-x86. It boots, but no 
mouse. I also tried ChromeOS images by ArnoldTheBat, but those wouldn't boot, 
either. I've had a lot of problems getting HVMs to work (probably PEBKAC, but 
that's why I've never been a huge fan of Xen). Any settings I can fiddle with?

[qubes-users] Unnecessary things in dom0/templates?

2016-08-25 Thread arthur . summers
I just updated dom0 and saw a few packages - avahi and openssl - that made me 
curious as to why they are there. I'm all about having a lean system, so I 
remove things where and when I can. If there's a reason for these things being 
there, then that's cool, but since dom0 is network-isolated, that struck me as 
a little odd.

I'm also curious to know if other people have thoughts on certain packages and 
why they're included (in dom0 or in templates), so feel free to list them on 
this thread.

[qubes-users] Re: What do you think about the idea of a FileVM?

2016-08-02 Thread Andrew "Arthur" Summers
I'm seriously taking this thread on a tangent, but are there any FOSS GUIs
that have been specifically built for Xen? Heck, any free proprietary GUIs?
I see paid options, abandoned projects, and cross-hypervisor solutions
(those don't tend to be great), but one reason I never delved into Xen is
that I couldn't figure out a good, free, standard GUI for management. I
figured that's one reason Qubes built one from scratch, but something
pre-existing would likely have OVA import functions.

Alright, now I'm starting to ramble...

2016-08-01 Thread Andrew "Arthur" Summers
Does Xen have a native import/export format? I'm WAY more familiar with
VMware offerings (which handle loads of formats), but if there's a way to
add OVA import to Qubes down the road, I'd be in love. Heck, if there's an
add-on or a command to run from Dom0 that I could use now, I'm down.

Re: [qubes-users] 3.2 RC2 - laptop screen lock bug

2016-07-31 Thread Andrew "Arthur" Summers
I attached the output of dmesg after I removed the "fix" I made. I also
included the output of lspci. Marek would probably know in better detail,
but it seems like the sound card's misconfiguration is causing the system
to wait for it to respond. Since it never responds, the system doesn't
sleep, there is a bit of a delay during startup/shutdown, and I obviously
have no sound.

Re: [qubes-users] Re: Qubes 3.2 rc2 has been released!

2016-07-31 Thread Andrew "Arthur" Summers
Awesome! I figured going through the release notes would be the best thing
to do, but I imagine that there are some more specific tests that the team
would like to have executed. I'll wait for Marek to respond first.

Note that for me, I couldn't get the installer for RC1 to load. 3.1 worked
just fine, though. So far, the only big difference I've found is my
soundcard not being configured correctly, and it caused things like standby
and resume to not work right (already reported, but happy to provide more
details - just ask).

Re: [qubes-users] Change HandleLidSwitch value in the installer?

2016-07-29 Thread arthur . summers
Actually, neither of those situations - the way post-install is set up is 
perfect. This is what I'm referring to Right now, if I fire up the installer, 
click "Begin Installation," and decide to close my laptop lid while the 
installation runs, the system goes to standby. :[ Boo!!! Usually, the USB fails 
to reconnect, and the installer breaks. That make more sense?

[qubes-users] Change HandleLidSwitch value in the installer?

2016-07-29 Thread arthur . summers
So, I'm glad that HandleLidSwitch is set properly after an install to keep 
laptop systems from going to sleep when closed. I always forget about that on 
new installs of different OSs, and then I have to remember how that flavor of 
whatever system lets you disable the setting.

HOWEVER, could that be disabled in the installer? It's happened at least three 
times that I've closed the lid without thinking, the system goes into standby, 
and on resume, the USB hasn't reattached properly, so I have to start over 
again. Not a HUGE deal, but it is certainly a bit frustrating . . .

Much appreciated!

[qubes-users] Re: What do you think about the idea of a FileVM?

2016-07-29 Thread arthur . summers
I agree with the idea of having an option for a storage VM, but my agreement 
goes a little deeper (and forks a bit). I know that the primary goal of Qubes 
is security, but there are a lot of different use cases for it. I use it 
because I like the compartmentalization provided by VMs. Security is almost a 
secondary for me - I wanted a bare-metal client hypervisor. Since XenClient no 
longer exists and no other offerings are well maintained, I landed on Qubes. 
For my purposes, sharing storage would be great, but baking it in DOES defeat 
the primary goals of the project.

Personally, I'm a huge fan of Turnkey Linux (http://turnkeylinux.org), and I 
use their stuff regularly to stand up infrastructure components or for testing. 
They have a fileserver VM, and it's pretty beautiful. Actually, all of their 
stuff is pretty beautiful. However, unless I missed something, I don't see an 
easy way to import an OVA/VMDK into Qubes. If that existed, I'd be happier than 
a dog with eight legs (yes, I said that). This would solve a lot of use cases, 
simplify the creation of third party HVMs, and still maintain the goals of the 
project.

Thoughts?

[qubes-users] 3.2 RC2 - laptop screen lock bug

2016-07-29 Thread arthur . summers
I'm happy to report that the issue I experienced below is gone, so I was able 
to install RC2. The AMDGPU drivers in the 4.4 kernel make a HUGE difference for 
dual monitors, so I'm excited!
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/qubes-users/uUwBy6RIUHQ/KESMemrcBQAJ

However, I'm having an issue when I close my laptop lid, reopen it, and then 
try to unlock the screen. The screen freezes for a good 60 seconds before 
letting me use the mouse or keyboard. This isn't after a standby, and it 
doesn't occur every time the screen locks - ONLY after I close the laptop lid 
and reopen it. Here is the pertinent dmesg:

[qubes-users] Debian VM isn't persistent for me

2016-07-23 Thread arthur . summers
I created an AppVM based on the Debian 8 template. I DID modify the template to 
add the Google Chrome repository and GPG key, but otherwise, I did nothing. 
Now, whenever I shut down my AppVM, changes seem to be lost - Chrome starts up 
fresh with all settings reset, and the keyring pops up to ask me for a 
password. Since I just did a fresh install of Qubes yesterday, I'm considering 
just reinstalling, but this is a little odd...

Re: [qubes-users] Trouble installing 3.2 RC1 - rdsosreport.txt below

2016-07-10 Thread Andrew "Arthur" Summers
Sounds good. I just hoped to give a little feedback on RC1 for your team. I
also wanted to see if 3.2 handled my graphics card a little better with
dual monitors - I get some choppy redrawing artifacts with 3.1. Regardless,
making sure that the installer doesn't have issues is a far bigger
consideration for release. Let me know if you'd like me to try something
else or provide further information!

[qubes-users] Trouble installing 3.2 RC1 - rdsosreport.txt below

2016-07-10 Thread arthur . summers
The installer for 3.2 RC1 doesn't load and drops me to a prompt. 3.1 loaded and 
installed just fine. I'm not a Fedora guy, so I'm not really sure why anaconda 
fails to load.

Sorry for plopping the log inline - I don't see an attachment button when 
starting a new topic.

Thanks for any help you can give!

Re: [qubes-users] Add options for making performance tweaks/enhancements with disclaimers?

Wow, that was fast . . .

First, I was just using the full screen thing as an easy example because it's 
something that I /know/ can be modified. I didn't want to suggest something 
that isn't an option since I'm a Xen noob.

With that said, I'll pose some options as a Xen/Qubes noob. Doesn't Qubes 
isolate memory and vCPUs between VMs instead of allowing for shared resources 
(which I believe is something that Xen does)? Things like that is what I'm 
after, I suppose.

I'm sure you're sick of hearing it, but man, I really wish my FirePro card had 
support under Qubes or that I could "sneaker-net" the appropriate drivers into 
dom0. ;)
