VPN support in PadOrbiter
« on: September 09, 2009, 09:26:28 am »
I have just started using PadOrbiter (Fantastic Work Thom!!)

I was just wondering, as VPNs are now built into core, would it be possible to have support for VPNs & possibly multiple saved WIFI conenctions in PadOrbiter?
It would be awesome to be able to take it to work (for example) & still have full control of my house.

Would there be enough room left for this?
What does everyone else think?

Josh

I think there are quite a few extra packages in the image file, Thom.  I was able to cut quite a bit out when I moved the 336 image to the 360.  I'll admit that I did it mostly accidentally, but I did end up with significantly more free space.  The thing isn't on right now, so I can't get you a package list from work.  I'll get it tomorrow night if you'd like.

Now, I'm not sure if it's enough free space, but it might give you a better chance.  I'm not sure how much I ended up with off the top of my head - it's been several months since I looked at it.

If someone could get PPTP installed and added to the webpad image, I'll assist with configuration.

Assuming there is enough space on the device (and this is probably not a valid assumption), the installation is pretty easy.  SSH is open, so just "ssh root@{the device IP}", password "root".  Something has filled up 100% of the flash on my unit - not sure what did that - but I did have some free space before, and it was more than Thom's standard image.  I'll get my package list for you.

Instead of VPN, would it be easier with SSH tunnel?

Might be...  I'm fairly sure the regular Debian OpenSSH package won't fit though - lots of dependencies that are large - so you might have to do some extra work on that front.

I installed pptp client on my webpad. Just clear the logs to get some extra free space(/var/log).

run:

Code: [Select]
apt-get update
apt-get install pptp-linux

man pptpsetup

lol. Just demonstrating that pptp client can be installed and used if anyone really wants to. I have other stuff that I want to see more, so this feature will take a back seat.... unless someone wants to donate and motivate ;) J/K
