Anyone working with the source code?

    Does anyone know of any projects working with the source code for the VPN products? I am most interested in the RVL200, but also interested in others.

    Do you know if the source code is complete?

    I actually started a thread as well where I was looking for information on Linksys VPN products and 3rd party firmware as well. I'll put the link here as well as it relates to your question too:


    Hopefully, we both will find the answers we are looking for. I think the RVL200 could be an excellent product if a 3rd party got involved with creating firmware for it. I'm sure they would be able to bump up the gateway-to-gateway vpn tunnels to at lest 3 and probably 5 as well as even the ssl/vpn connections to about 10 (although 5 works for what I need it to do). If possible, I would like to see advanced settings similar to what's been configured with the PacketProtector (http://packetprotector.org) project. It's 16MB of RAM should be more then enough for some advanced feature. I'm also curious about any word on his Linksys will do like Cisco has done and started making usb ports standard in their routers. This would make all the difference in using Linksys devices to support high-end router featurs such as intrusion detection/prevention, antivirus, etc.

    erm well the firmware is already 15Mbs in size. you'd need to cut down a lot of features already to add ones you wanted. I would also guess adding more IPSEC VPN/SSL clients will hit performance, or Linksys would have added this already.

    Yeah, I did notice that the firmware size was already a bit large. I figured it might have been just been bloated with some bad programing on the developers side. Considering the RVS4000's firmware is 5.05 MB in size. What makes me think this is the fact that the firmware dated 7/27/2006 is 15.4 MB in size but the one dated 9/04/2006 is 14.4 MB in size. I'm not a programmer but tha's a size decrease of about 1MB. That is very telling.
