    Hi all!

    I have a weird problem with cron job in Tomato.

    Here is my script:
    cru a doraemon 15 9 * * 0,6 ether-wake 00:19:66:15:1B:4A

    cat << "EOF" > /root/.profile
    alias a='alias'
    alias c='cat /proc/cpuinfo'
    alias dir='ls -laF'

    But when I rebooted the router, the cron job list becomes:
    15 9 etc home mnt script_init.sh var etc home mnt script_init.sh var 0,6 ether-w ake 00:19:66:15:1B:4A #doraemon#
    45 10 * * * ntpsync --cron #ntpsync#

    There seems to be a problem but I can't figure out where.

    Thanks in advance.

    As usual I have jumped the gun again by posting without researching myself.

    Let me answer my own question.

    I'm supposed to use:
    cru a doraemon "15 9 * * 0,6 ether-wake 00:19:66:15:1B:4A"

    with the double quotation marks.

    I'm sorry for the inconvenience caused to u all. :redface:
