Does any firmware make use of ip_conntrack modules?

    Hi all,

    I want to use my router (wrt54gs v.1.) to chat on irc. Therefore I need two things to work:

    1. Ident requests ... although I have disabled the option to filter ident requests in the router's security menu, I still need to add a port forwarding rules or a port triggering rule for ident requests to be answered by my computer. According to linksys support, disabling the filter option should suffice. But I got this working with port triggering so not such a big problem.

    2. I also want to be able to send files via dcc. Therefore I could add port-forwardings for certain ports that I then use for dcc sends. But I want to be able to dcc send from virtually anny IP in my network, so addning static forwards is my last resort.
    I understand, that linksys is a linux based firmware with a more or less standard kernel. Why don't they mak use of the ip_conntrack modules then? AFAIK ip_conntrack_irc does exactly the job I am searching for.

    Is there any firmware that uses this option to make dcc (and maybe even ident) a purely dynamic thing without having to add static rules?

    Help would be appreciated.

    there is a place far away where the complete kernel can be loaded into a wrt54g and all is good. but it is not here.

    the router firmware is open source and this means that you can re-compile it to do whatever you want.


    i had an offer from a guy that runs a site to recompile my firmware to include the chat module for using a serial port

    i think it was theforestnetworking.com , it was. anyways of course expect to pay the man for his time he is pretty good.

    this should solve yur prolem.


    alternatively you could ask a developer from either dd-wrt or sveasoft or whatever to do it for you, gratis. but dont expect them to do it now or in the near future.
