help with syslog messages from ddwrt router
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 20, 2009
Hi all, i'm back again. Its hard to believe that I've been using Ubuntu for 6 months straight now. I'm getting better, but I apparently have a lot more to learn.
So, I've managed to flash my linksys router with dd-wrt firmware, which now works wonderfully, instead of going down when too many tcp connections are happening.
I've been playing around with the syslogd service on my router, and I'm not having any trouble receiving the syslog messages, they appear just fine in /var/log/messages, the catch-all log. I also tried to set a custom rule in my syslog.conf file, so it would write the router's logs to a seperate file for later perusing, and not having to dig though days of /var/log/messages. But I'm not sure of the syntax. I've read the man pages, and google'd my butt off on this one, but I can't figure out how to get log entries to go to /var/log/router.

how do I tell if my ddwrt router turned switch is the bottleneck

Its is an asus rt n16 tuned into a switch and wireless ap. I can never seem to get better than 30 Mbits/s, even though the router cards are gigabit the tx is gigabit and the rx is gigabit. Also both machines are fairly new using at least sata 1 if not 3 hdds and intefaces. Furthermore, I have been watching cpu on the rx box and it is not even at half. The transfers are over smb2, since there seems to be something wrong with nfs right now. I understand overhead, but 30 out of 125 seems a little low.
I am thinking maybe the dated firmware on the switch may be the problem. Firmware: DD-WRT v24-sp2 (08/07/10) mega. But I can find little to no info on how to check this.
This is the closest thing I can find.
nvram show | grep vlan.*ports
size: 23135 bytes (9633 left)
vlan0ports=1 2 3 4 5*
ping_ip=nvram show | grep vlan.*ports
vlan1ports=4 3 2 1 8*
also I appologize for the ddwrt, but it is the only one I know how to install. I am trying to work on this :-)

How to get my computer a static IP from linksys router
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 15, 2009
just bought a (linux-based) linksys router. First impression is really good, it seems to kick my old d-link routers ***
There's one thing I haven't quite been able to figure out yet: how do I forward ssh connections to my computer.
I found the place where to forward connections on port 22 to some local IP, but how do I assign a static IP to my computer, so I know which IP to forward it too?
Thx in advance
[SOLVED] Moving drivers from MacOSX to linux (ddwrt) router using Terminal (SSH).
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 10, 2011
Wireless Router: Asus WL-520gu
Firmware: DD-WRT v24-sp2 (08/12/10) mini-usb-ftp (SVN revision 14929)
Computer: Macbook Pro (OS X 10.6.8)
Connection: Mac <ethernet> Router
In Terminal.app, I SSH into the router, put in my pass and I see the dd wrt welcome text, etc
# cd /jffs
# mkdir kmods
# cd kmods
# mv /Users/Home/Desktop/acm.o /jffs/kmods
# mv /Users/Home/Desktop/usbserial.o /jffs/kmods
# mv /Users/Home/Desktop/ftdi_sio.o /jffs/kmods
(The files are sitting on my desktop)
Then I put this script into both the "Commands" tab of the router's web GUI and into Terminal.app to be safe. In the router's GUI, I hit "Run Commands" in the GUI, then "Save Startup".
1) I have no experience with using command lines, and I feel that my "move" commands are the problem. The

Getting logs from a remote syslog
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 10, 2003
I've asked a similar question in another thread but i've realised that i've not understood the whole concept of syslogging.
Anyways, what i want to know is how can i get logs remotely from a syslog daemon.
I have a Linux box and a Cisco server which generates logs via it's syslog daemon. How can i make my Linux box read these logs? I thought that there exist "syslog clients" but i googled in vain. So i came up with the conclusion that they do not exist, and therefore i must take a different approach. Thanks in advance. Ganni.
