No DNSCrypt for Tomato Shibby Mini-IPv6

    Hi, I'm running Shibby's tomato-K26-1.28.RT-MIPSR2-101-MiniIPv6 on my WRT160N v3, and found that it does not have a web GUI for DNSCrypt. Also dnscrypt-proxy binary is nonexistent on the firmware.
    Other than that, I think Shibby is great. :)

    Entware offers dnscrypt-proxy:

    root@gw:/tmp/home/root# opkg list | grep -i dnscrypt
    dnscrypt-proxy - 1.0.1-1 - dnscrypt-proxy is a slight variation on DNSCurve.
    dnscrypt-proxy-hostip - 1.0.1-1 - A tool for resolving a name before dnscrypt-proxy. It should help fighting the chicken-and-egg issue seen on routers, where dnscrypt-proxy requires
    There is no GUI interface for this software. You would need to write it yourself, though my recommendation would be to get used to using a CLI.

    Sorry, I should have been more clear: I meant a native GUI to the software (dnscrypt) itself, as in the daemon running its own webserver, etc...

    You're absolutely 100% right -- it's hard to discern without reading this thread thoroughly, but Shibby did add GUI adjustments for dnscrypt. The only conclusive screenshot I could find is here, from March 2012; I imagine the GUI has improved since then...? But I don't have a way to confirm (I don't run Shibby builds). If you run Shibby, maybe you could put up a screenshot of what the dnscrypt GUI bits look like so folks (including me :) ) would know/learn.

    I went to the same page as the se7six guy (Basic → Network), however the setting to enable dnscrypt is missing, along with the dnscrypt-proxy binary. I'm running the latest build of the mini-ipv6 release.

    I imagine the Mini-IPv6 builds don't include any "extra" software (per se) due to keeping the firmware size down, so that probably explains both things. Try a different build (Ext, etc.).
