OpenWRT PPTP Client – Part 2

Looks impressive:

The default kernel found in Kamikaze 8.09 downloaded from OpenWRT web site is panicing when kernel accel-pptp is used. I cannot provide the output of the Oops message ’cause i have no serial connection to the router (and I don’t want to add one since then I will need serial-to-usb connector as well).

So I went further and used the trunk (at revision 14823), built the image, flashed the router, found that it is far from being dead and tried…

root@gate:~# pppd plugin /tmp/ pptp_server nodetach \
             debug user ****** password ***

No output, but no crash. Ok, logging in for another session…

root@gate:~# ifconfig ppp0
ppp0      Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol
          inet addr:  P-t-P:  Mask:
          RX packets:10451 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:8618 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:3
          RX bytes:12413021 (11.8 MiB)  TX bytes:4034292 (3.8 MiB)

With no error messages in dmesg.

I will test this setup for an evening or two and the third part will be about how to package it the right way.

Here’s the third part.
