Known issues and bugs


Downloading of Blacklists fails on IPcop 2.0.1 or Later

If you install on or upgrade IPCop to 2.0.1 or later attempts to download new blacklists will fail. The 2.0.1 and 2.0.2 versions of IPCop require a recompiled version of the wget downloader program. You can download the newer version from here:

The 2.0.3 and 2.0.4 versions of IPCop include wget, but the Cop+ installer will overwrite it, breaking things. For 2.0.3 or 2.0.4 you need to replace wget with the version that comes with ipcop 2.0.3. You can extract it from the distribution .iso (on linux it's easy) or download it from my site here:

In either case, use WinSCP to copy it to your ipcop box, replacing /usr/bin/wget
Make sure the new wget file has execute permissions (rwxr-xr-x).

Web Browsing Fails

Sometimes web browsing breaks after installing Cop+ or after making changes to dansguardian. Usually restarting squid will fix the problem. Restart squid by going to the GUI page Services - Proxy and hit the "Save" button.

Banned IP List mislabled - Cop+ 3.0

If you want to ban certain IP numbers on your network from ever web browsing, you have to put them in the bannediplist. The link to do this in the GUI works, but is incorrectly labeled "Banned file extension list file" Upgrade to Cop+ 3.1.0 to fix this
