EXE on Linux

So, anyone know a good method, I tried wine but it failed when I wanted to run D-Guard so I can protect from DDOS.

Any ideas?

    Try mono if it's written in .net .... otherwise you are SoL

    Try iptables.

    Edit: It probably won't work in linux anyway since windows network interfaces are different than linux network interfaces. This is too OS specific.

  • Get software that runs in linux/is an OS

    There are plenty of them.

  • Oh look, it's @ajones again...

    Why would you want to run a Windows DDoS firewall on Linux? Just use one that is made for Linux.

    Why not get one for LInux based systems?

    Alternative suggestion: Why not just use Windows?

    From your post it sounds like this is for your home machine. Do you really need to go to extreme lengths to protect from DDOS at home?

    Oh wait, HackForums dude again. Apologies.

  • From what it sounds like, I think his Linux server is getting DDOSed and Windows firewall is the only thing he knows how to configure...

    Including DDOS tools? Man that's risky :)

  • You clearly cannot comprehend my question.
    D-Guard used to support windows, linux since then they removed the linux downloads, only way is to run the exe on linux.

  • Get a windows vps instead.

    So they used to support both and now the only way is to run the Windows copy on Linux? Makes perfect sense. My computer used to support CDs and floppy disks, but I took out the floppy drive, now the stupid CDROM won't take the floppy disk. Anyone have an adapter to make it fit in the tray?

    You clearly are not very intelligent. There's no way this will work.

    Linux is a totally different beast. Not sure that you can have 'ddos protection' with a windows program on a linux machine.

    Just because they had a linux download at one time doesn't mean the windows version works with linux.

    Not sure how that is relevant... I already googled it and looked at the product.

  • Keep in mind that tools like Wine and Crossovers actually runs a BASIC/Minimal Windows-like api stack, not a full featured Windows OS. This means that WINE cannot interface with the lower level linux subsystem, where a firewall would run. In english, this means that this sort of application is not a candidate for being ran on Linux.

    WINE based applications also have MUCH higher respources then if it were ran on a native Windows Machine.

    You would need to try to find a linux DDoS Solution, and there are many.
