> 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.
Ok, that's a new question. I quoted your last question, and this wasn't it.
Ah.. yeah I was wondering about that. :)
It's probably still thinking jffs is enabled because you didn't reset the router before and after upgrade. Maybe you found a loophole.
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
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 .
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)

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

Update: Still not fixed as of V24 SP1
What can I do about this?
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. _________________ Q: How do I do ...? A: Read the tutorials or Search forums
