    I wish to see more setting in Firewall side in future release.
    1) DDoS attack protection
    2) Layer7 protection
    3) proxy, activeX,Java limit rules similar to Thibor15c.

    Hello, I'm new to this alternative firmware stuff.

    I have downloaded the new Tarifa fw zip file, but there are 3 .bin files in there.

    Which one of them do I have to choose? I guess it has to be the code.bin file, because the other 2 are for the gs versions of the WRT54G series.

    My wlan router is a WRT54GL. Am I right with the code.bin file?

    Also I tried to download and open the user manual, but there appeared a Windows error message "Could not parse the 001Tarifa029.PDF".

    Could someone please upload this manual for me if possible?

    Thank you!

    Thank you for your help, jchuit.

    Yes, I downloaded the file, but firstly it has only a size of 13 kb not of about 766 kb
    and secondly if I open it then this message appears every time:


    I don't know what went wrong and what goes wrong every time.

    Do you have this pdf file? Would you please so kind as to uplod it to this forum.

    Or can I write you a pm with a email address to send me that file?

    Ok I solved the problem. I downloaded the file with internet explorer et voila the pdf has the right size.

    There must have been a problem with firefox. [​IMG]

    Another question: in the manual there is written "This firmware is based on the original Linksys 4.30.7 and 4.71.1 firmware.... "

    My Linksys WRT54GL firmware is version 4.30.4. Is it nevertheless possible for me to use the Tarifa 0.29 version or do I have to upgrade to 4.30.7 first?

    Thank you again

    You can upgrade to Tarifa firmware instantly, if you have a Linksys firmware preinstalled.


    Ps: and in your case, I should use the Internet Explorer for upgrading, just to be sure.

    At the moment, I am not preparing a new release.

    But, the next version will have
    1. SNMP deamon
    2. iptables extensions
    3. maybe some limited ipv6 support
    4. some small changes in the dhpc client/server deamon.

    a beta release

    I don't think a new release will be ready before christmas:

    At the moment, I am preparing a beta release,
    the first beta will contain the new MiniUpnp server.
    see: http://miniupnp.free.fr/

    Good Day Jchuit,

    I am new to 3rd-party firmware upgrade. I have loaded the Tarifa029 firmware to my WRT54gV4 router and up and running. I am trying to tune the WRT54gV4 for bittorrent, reading the manual, do I have to specifically put down the script written in the manual to tune to bittorrent in the rc_startup?

    i.e put down this script into
    echo 3086 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_conntrack_max

    Do I enter the above 2 line of script in 1 line or follow exactly as 2 line script ? Thanks.

    The p2p script

    The default Tarifa setup of the WRT54G with 16 MByte RAM has a max of 1543 connections.
    This should be enough, but if you use more connections (due to p2p) you can increase this value:

    echo 3086 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_conntrack_max

    This will cost you:
    3086 * 352 = 1 MByte Ram memory and some speed, the hashtable is still 1543 and the conntrack value 3086, this means a max of two links (was 1) for each hashtable and this can take a littlebit time.

    You can check the amount of current connections by using slabinfo:

    cat /proc/slabinfo conntrack | grep conntrack

    The unreplied one's will be deleted within 4 minutes.
