Wow, great, thanks. Smile This one worked! The other one I used ( RC4 something or another ) didn't actually leave me with any free space to work with.

Yes and I actually answered your question last time you asked it.

> DD-WRT v24sp1 VPN builds have the JFFS feature removed


I have a question. Aside from not having the "enable jffs" option anymore, how can I tell if this really has been disabled in v24sp1 vpn?

On my LinkSys WRT-54GL, I was using firmware "v23-sp2 vpn" with the MMC/SD card mod and jffs enabled. I upgraded to "v24 vpn" and then to "v24-sp1 vpn" with no issues. Now, even though the "enable jffs" option is gone... as far as I can tell jffs still seems functional. I can use WinSCP to view the /mmc/jffs directory, I have "addn-hosts=/mmc/jffs/etc/block_hosts" as a DNSmasq option (which the system can read from), and I have "Use JFFS2 for client lease DB" checked and that seems to work as well. Huh? :?

I really need these options to be able to write to the /mmc/jffs directory, so I'm a little nervous now about uploading firmware just in case this happens to be a fluke. I was just about to look for v24-vpn firmware that dumped Sputnik in favor of the free Chilispot... but not at the cost of possibly losing jffs. I am stuck.

Code:

ifneq ($(CONFIG_JFFS2),y)
     rm -f $(TARGETDIR)/lib/modules/$(LINUXVER)/jffs2.o

Yes, I understand jffs was commented out in this build. My question was why does it still work after upgrading from "v23-sp2 vpn" to " v24-sp1 vpn"?

Ok, that's a new question. I quoted your last question, and this wasn't it.

It's probably still thinking jffs is enabled because you didn't reset the router before and after upgrade. Maybe you found a loophole.

Frankly, I'm surprised it didn't brick it. Confused

Ah.. yeah I was wondering about that. :)

Actually my WRT-54GL was reset multiple times. The first update process reset it after going from "v23-sp2 vpn" --> "v24 vpn", then the second update process reset it after going from "v24 vpn" --> "v24-sp1 vpn". Since then, I'm pretty sure I reset it several times in order to make a few changes, and just now (24 hrs after the update) I reset it once again just for grins. So far I am still able to read the /jffs directory on the SD card mod using WinSCP, my custom DNSmasq option can still read that directory without a problem, and I'm still able to check options like "Use JFFS2 for client lease DB".

If this is a loophole then it means I'm stuck with this version for a while. There's no way I'm going to risk loosing having the latest dd-wrt vpn release and be able to use jffs with it. :o

Well, the following is not an issue any more. It seems not to be a router/software problem. Sorry for cluttering your thread

Hi,
I've got a problem that maybe isn't the same as discussed here but related with the built you've touched on.

I've got a wrt54gl v1.1 with dd-wrt v24 sp1 VPN on it. Yesterday I upgraded this package to the dd-wrt.v24-10086_NEWD_openvpn_jffs_small, because I need jffs support. VPN generally worked although I didn't achieve my goal with JffS.
It worked by the time I got that - probably stupid - idea to administer the router without being connected to it directly(via VPN). By the 3rd reboot the device blocked, so I only closed the browser window and reconnected to VPN. Unfortunately it wasn't working anymore. I mean I was connected(the client software) but had no possibity to browse web being connected to VPN (not only the network resources I connected to but internet at all).

At first I thought it may be a temporary change in the software on board so I flashed the device with the same package once more - didn't help
So I got another idea - it might be a particular software related issue - so I flashed the device with the official/final version od dd-wrt with VPN (the one I mentioned at the beginning) - without any success Sad.

So I thought maybe you guys have any idea what on earth happened to my router. I can connect but it acts like there were no packets transmitted

Would appreciate your help. (if I should make a new thread on it let me know pls, cause I'm pretty new here)

I'm not talking about rebooting it. I'm talking about a hard reset.

Ohhhh. Well shoot... wasn't aware that you were supposed to do that procedure before and after an upgrade. Hmmm... well everything is working exactly as I want it to so guess I really lucked out on this one. Thanks for the helpful information. :D

It is not a bug. Christ how hard is it to understand? It was intentionally removed!

You can download a small build, like the mini or Eko's NOKAID_MINUS or even the VPN + JFFS build from Eko - all of which have JFFS enabled. For the small builds, ipkg update then ipkg -d jffs install openvpn for openvpn.

You can't have EVERYTHING on EVERY build. Obviously. Would be easier to just ask for a build with VPN and JFFS. I did, and Eko happily provided one within like a few hours.

LOL

Maybe the question was not clear. It's clear from the many posts that JFFS support is not built into v24-sp1 VPN. I was not able to find any specific post saying why this was done.

There was a second or third hand reference to brainslayer taking it out due to a QoS conflict on one thread. Another couple of posts mention space issues.

VPN is a killer build for those of us who have 8MB routers with misfunctional USB storage (wl-500gp v2) since it (with JFFS) would provide 4MB+ of file space.

The most important question seemed to be: Should we expect a mainline VPN build with JFFS support or should we start making other plans?

In case it's not clear, I really enjoy dd-wrt and appreciate all the hard work put into it.

The links to the build with OpenVPN and USB support do not work anymore. Anyone got a working one?

Or any news if there will be a OpenVPN build with USB support in the future?

Thanks!
