How do I change dropbear config to add -a?

    I want to enable remote port fowarding (ssh -R), but dropbear isn't starting with the -a option. I've searched the threads here, and some people say their instance of dropbear *is* starting with the -a option -- how do I make this happen? I'm running Tomato 1.25 on WRT54GL.

    In teddy_bear's mod at least, there is an extra tick box to enable "remote forwarding". You could run dropbear manually from one of the scripts, but may also need to write custom firewall commands to allow remote access.

    Wouldn't you just kill the old one and start a new one with the desired parameters?

    (I would probably not do this remotely, and would probably not automate it before testing it interactively. Might even fire up telnetd first, just in case. :))

    (Oh, BTW, "init --help" is less helpful than you might expect. :()

    Oh, Yeah, Victek's mod has a "Remote Forwading" Box too. :)
