Restore to MY settings (a little bit like change "factory defaults")

    I have to place a few routers in a "public" place - and I'm pretty sure, that some day, someone will reset the router.

    Is it possible to use MY settings, even when the router has been reset?

    Yah, pretty sure that's not what he meant. He wants the default configuration after a reset to be his settings, without him loading his backup file.

    That way when someone hits the reset button, the downtime is just until the router reboots, instead of until he notices it is down and loads his settings. Not to mention the security problems of having someone able to reset to the original factory settings...

    Ah, I see...I definately can't help with that:smile:

    When a hard reset is done, the initial NVRAM settings are taken from the CFE.

    You could create a custom CFE and flash it onto the routers via the JTAG interface, but it's not a trivial process.


    It might be easier to look at some way of physically securing the router, maybe in a box (although you'd have to be wary of overheating), or by supergluing a piece of plastic over the reset button.

    Isn't it possible to change the settings right on the PC/in the source - and then flash it (the normal way, just like flashing Tomato "normally")?
