I followed the link above to download the packages and binaries, but all the files have the same filename and 2007 stamp that was on go6.net before.
Please let me know if anything has changed in the OpenWRT port.
I intend to install this on an WRT54GL, wonder if anyone tried it there ? If so, which version of DD-WRT was used (Mega, VoIP, Standard, etc.) ? I intend to do an ipkg install to retain the slick DD-WRT interface.
Do we know if it will work on the WRT54GL (which according to Cisco is "Wireless-G Linux Broadband Router created specially for hobbyists and wireless aficionados") ? I checked http://nuwiki.openwrt.org/oldwiki/hardware/linksys and WRT54GL has identical specs to WRT54GS-v4 and the latter already has a binary for on go6.net
Please confirm if this is the binary to use. I want to avoid going down the path of flashing with a new binary, then finding it doesn't work and the original router status cannot be restored ... thx.
What you find on the client download page aren't images for openwrt but only packages to be installed on an existing system. The package was built for the previous version of openwrt but people have managed to get it to work on the latest versions as well. To flash your device you have to go to http://openwrt.org/ and get the correct image.
I am confused:
The OpenWRT Readme on go6.net that James refers to states, "Hexago provides prebuilt, full firmware images containing the Gateway6 Client application and all required dependencies, or alternatively, packages with the Gateway6 Client application and the modified web interface".
The firmware images (*.bin) on the go6.net site, that James refers to, are easier to install. Indeed the full firmware installation is explained in Option 1 in the Readme for installation.
So why do I have to install packages and ignore the full firmware option ?
Sorry, I din't think of those since they are old versions of openwrt, whiterussian. Don't know what platforms are supported, check with openwrt which have more information on what release works with which platform. It seems to depend on which revision number of a model you have so you need to make sure.
The gw6c package for the last openwrt release (backfire) is in the backfire repository itself, so just update you package list (opkg update) and then download it (opkg install gw6c). But the are still several issues:
the syntax of the config file is totally wrong: you have to manually convert every parameter setting line, using "param=value" instead of "option param value". gw6c will refuse to start complaining for missing assignements.
the logging facility is disabled by default: enable it and look for the file into /var/log
the client will look for "openwrt.sh" template in the wrong directory, despite that in the config file the gw6c directory is properly defined; the workaround is to look at the log file, to discover where the client expects the template, and then "ln -s" to it
even when every looks ok, the client starts but, after correctly setting up the tunnel, it terminates without further diagnostics (I still have to work on this)
I will post my config file and a further note when I'll have worked out this.
