Proxmox VPS/Cloud

Postby mitgib » 5th October 2015, 4:05 pm

I am looking to enable post create functions on the nodes to enable tun/tap, pptp, fuse ... The list could go on, I'm a bit upset to see modulesfactory, which is less that half the cost, when you factor in their module also does the job of IP Manager, has this, and enables DHCP for KVM containers so clients do not need to manually number their VPS

Here is community submitted code to run DHCP on the proxmox nodes, then the WHMCS machine edits the config file https://modulesfactory.com/forum/index. ... networksh/ and their wiki https://modulesfactory.com/knowledgebas ... r-KVM.html

It would seem if you are granting access to WHMCS to ssh to the proper proxmox node you could extend this as well to add/remove tun/tap, pptp, fuse, gre any number of functions that need to manually preformed

Some scripts I use with SolusVM from before they supported tun/tap from the UI and also provide gre for OpenVZ
Code: Select all
#!/bin/sh

VPS="$1"
 for VPS in $VPS; do
  vzctl set $VPS --features "nfs:on" --save
  vzctl set $VPS --features ppp:on --save
  vzctl set $VPS --features ipgre:on --save
  vzctl set $VPS --devices c:10:200:rw --devices c:108:0:rw --device c:10:229:rw --save
  vzctl exec $VPS mknod /dev/ppp c 108 0
  vzctl exec $VPS chmod 600 /dev/ppp
  vzctl exec $VPS mknod /dev/fuse c 10 229
  vzctl set $VPS --capability net_admin:on --save
  vzctl set $VPS --capability net_raw:on --save
  vzctl set $VPS --capability sys_admin:on --save
done;


Modules are needed for the node as well, from a CentOS 6 node

Code: Select all
# cat /etc/rc.modules
#!/bin/sh
#
# This script will be executed *after* all the other init scripts.
# You can put your own initialization stuff in here if you don't
# want to do the full Sys V style init stuff.

modprobe tun
modprobe fuse
modprobe iptable_nat
modprobe ipt_recent
modprobe ipt_REDIRECT
modprobe xt_connlimit
modprobe ppp_mppe
modprobe ip_gre
modprobe ipt_MASQUERADE
modprobe ipt_MARK
modprobe ipt_mark
modprobe ppp_async
modprobe ppp_deflate
modprobe zlib_deflate
modprobe ppp_generic
modprobe slhc
modprobe crc_ccitt
modprobe xt_state
modprobe ip6_tables
modprobe ip6table_filter
modprobe ip6table_mangle
modprobe nf_conntrack_ipv6


Which can easily be done on a proxmox node
Code: Select all
# cat /etc/modules
# /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
#
# This file contains the names of kernel modules that should be loaded
# at boot time, one per line. Lines beginning with "#" are ignored.
# Parameters can be specified after the module name.

tun
fuse
iptable_nat
ipt_recent
ipt_REDIRECT
xt_connlimit
ppp_mppe
ip_gre
ipt_MASQUERADE
ipt_MARK
ipt_mark
ppp_async
ppp_deflate
zlib_deflate
ppp_generic
slhc
crc_ccitt
xt_state
ip6_tables
ip6table_filter
ip6table_mangle
nf_conntrack_ipv6


I am not good with coding, so why I do not mind paying for someone else to do so, and I am surprised these basic needed functions are not in the Modulesgarden module to extend the functionality and worth of the module.

Hello,

Thank you for sharing these great ideas and for sending us detailed information about them. We will discuss them internally for sure, see what can be implemented in our modules and schedule the updates. But first we will focus on compatibility with Proxmox VE 4.
