Tomato... SD Mod?

    I have looked all over the net and find no references to tomato and the SD Mod. I did try DDWRT but their firmware is so bug ridden I am amazed it stands at all. Any assist or direction to this would be most appreciated.

    Thanx.

    I haven't thought about it... sounds like a good idea SD Mod needs a module to be compiled for it to work.
    SDMOD sources are here and the relevant page on Openwrt Documentation is here
    of course you are required recompile the firmware which shouldn't be too hard because it's only a couple of modules...

    Till now ...... NO CHANCE
    The only way is to make a MOD and share it with the comunity or donate a lt of money and maybe Jon will do it :biggrin:

    While I currently dont have a linux box active to compile on that sounded dangerously like a challenge >:)

    I think that if I'll mount the SD in /cifs1 or /cifs2 it could trick the GUI writing the logs on the SD card.
    I'm thinking about doing the Mod, if I will I'll post my sources
    :grin:

    Is there a tutorial anywhere on compiling Tomato? I'd be more than happy to give it a go... but if anybody should happen to experiment and get a version with the SD drivers built in I'd be tickled to death if they would share... that is the only reason I have DDWRT on my 2.2.. Tomato is just more stable IMHO

    Roadkill I like the CIFS idea... and a script could set the save point to the SD location for the bandwidth stats...

    this is the SD/MMC Howto from Openwrt wiki.
    cifs mounting is the simplest way because everything in the gui already exists..

    Hi. Sorry for taking this topic alive after half a year :) but did you make this mod and use in tomato? I'm very interested about this sd mod ang logging connections of my users for my security. When for example someone gets banned data from network I will have a proof for police who has made that. If not they would probably take me to jail :wink:
    Could you tell me how to make it alive in tomato from start to the end ? Big thanks

    okay
    you should download the source, compile the module and add mmc support to the kernel
    I advise to mount mmc in /cifs2 since implementation for that already exists
    if you want I can add it to my todo list for next version
    :grin:

    it would be great if you could make such version with working card mod. Compiling is too high step for me :wink:
    About this mounting, you said that I should use cifs 2 but what path I should write there and how to start logging on this card connections? Could it make one file per day and after for example one month send to my computer or to ftp server ?
    Thanks for fast reply :smile:

    well I'm not too sure what you want to log onto the mmc card but Tomato can log all statistical data amount downloaded to cifs so it should act the same for a card...

    I want to log connections of computers in lan to the internet. Who was entering to which ip in the internet. I make it now by the wallwatcher but you know that i must have computer on to make it. I want to make it the same but on mounted card in WRT all the time.
