just started playing around with 4.1…seems to work ok so far…I migrated my qubes from a 4.0.4 install and tried to manipulate my “qubes.UpdatesProxy”…apparently it does no seem to be in “/etc/qubes-rpc/policy/”…am I missing something here?
Is it possible that qubes.UpdatesProxy was not created after I only installed dom0 and then migrated the rest?
qubes.UpdatesProxy file should still be there, but I think it’s ignored with R4.1’s new qrexec policy format. You can read more about it here: Qubes Architecture Next Steps: The New Qrexec Policy System | Qubes OS
I had to change those settings myself a couple of days ago, just create a file called
30-user.policy (for example) in
/etc/qubes/policy.d and set up your
qubes.UpdatesProxy rules there. You can read through the
90-default.policy file in the same directory to get a good sense of how the system works.
thanks for the advice…I will look into that immediately.
