Tinyproxy on toastman

    Hi there, i want to install Tinyproxy in my Asus RT-N12.
    My JFFS only have 3904KB.
    I tried to install optware but failed because not enough space on JFFS.
    So i decided to use CIFS method.
    My question is:
    1. Can Tinyproxy fit into JFFS?
    2. Do i need to connect to CIFS all the time after install Tinyproxy?


    p.s The reason to use Tinyproxy is to block https for some site since access restriction can only block http.

    Try Entware instead of Optware. The executables are smaller than Optware's.

    Looks like the only dependency on Entware is the libc package. 3.9MB should be plenty for tinyproxy itself. If it's not enough to perform the Entware install, then install to cifs or usb and copy only the needed files to jffs.

    I was considering telling him to install Entware, but I have no idea if it'd work reliably via CIFS/SMB due to potential differences in file permissions and overall filesystem behaviour. He can't do USB because the RT-N12 lacks a USB port.

    Another possibility, if HTTPS was the sole focus, would be to make some iptables rules that use the xl_string.ko module to match specific strings within the first N bytes of each packet destined to TCP port 443, though false positives are always a possibility. But that's all discussed in the (slowly becoming infamous) access restrictions thread.
