i'm still noticing that after a fresh upgrade with default settings, the router seems to be maxing the cpu out trying to connect to internet with a default connection that obvously doesn't work. It takes several minutes to enter right ISP information and connect since routers cpu is so maxed out the router web interface is border unresponsive and takes forever to do anything. been happening since 2.93 on both Dlink G604T with psp bootloader and Solwise with 1350 chip. Goes away as soon as right ISP information is entered and it can actually connect. I don't know if it's stuck in endless loop with default settings or what but it's certainly troublesome.

Yes, it is trying to connect with default settings, and this will continue until the correct settings are entered. The problem disappears if the rj11 lead is only connected to the router after entering the correct ISP connection settings.

Hopefully, yes. And, hopefully, we have built all that is necessary to do this into the firmware.

Dunno. You or someone else will just have to figure it out and tell the rest of us. ;)

One more question, can openvpn on router act as a client?(i looked at the pdf but it only mentions about server) It seems to be easier to use it to connect to my vpn provider than pptp.

Thanks for the update.

Question about block_rebind.sh. I've tried running it via autoexec.sh, RT_cmd_1, and RT_init_1, but for whatever reason, it never runs those ways. The rt_commands.html document mentions that only a subset of scripts can be run at startup, so is this not one of them? It isn't listed as one of them, but it's not listed higher up in the overall list of scripts either.

Have you tried the full paths to the commands?

Code: Select all

setenv autoexec.sh /usr/local/bin/block_rebind.sh
By the way, this should achieve the same effect (not using iptables, but rather telling the http server to only accept connections from one IP address (e.g., 192.168.1.1).

Code: Select all

setenv http_addr 192.168.1.1

Assuming that the log file is that of your client:
1) Your config file contains "dev tun" instead of "dev tap"
2) Your config file doesn't contains "ns-cert-type server"
3) For client configuration problems you should visit "http://www.openvpn.net". I think this is not the right forum to provide information on OpenVPN problems itself, but for OpenVPN on the router.

That shouldn't be a problem. I know that it is possible with a FritzBox, a very common modem in Germany. But because we tried to make OpenVPN on this firmware as easy as possible for the user we provided only config files for the "modem as a server" scenario. To make it work to act as a client you need to modify the .ovpn configuration files on your own.

To be honest, and as TafnaSM has indicated, we've only been concerned with the server side of things on the router. We can answer questions about the server side, since that is what we aim to support - hence the helper scripts that we have included. As for OpenVPN as a client on the router, I doubt I can be of much use there. It would be better to go to the OpenVPN forums.
