WRVS4400N GPL Code Files Contain No User Interface htm Files

    While looking for the htm files on the WRVS4400N, I decided to look in the GPL Code. Because the GPL License from BusyBox does not include the user interface, all of the user interface pages are not there. If anyone has a listing of the htm pages in the WRVS4400N v1.00.15 or v1.00.16 Firmware, please let me know. This is because several of the htm files on the unit which are needed for it to work properly are not called from the upper pages (htm). The unit uses scripts to call the pages and hide the page names from the user.

    IPSec seems to be by: FreeS/WAN
    Open Operating System: BusyBox (Small Operating of Unix Utilities built on a Linux Platform).

    there is quite a few units that use scripts to generate the webgui pages when being accessed by the looks of it.

    Simulator htm Comparison plus blah blah blah

    Since the simulator (mentioned above) is unable to save VPN configurations, the advanced button is ineffective. I checked for other htm's directly and found that updates in version 15 and 16 are not in the simulator which are the same ones missing from the top pages in the version 16 release. Interesting. I am beginning to wonder if I need to start a list of recommended updates for version 17. My concern is that Microsoft is releasing SP1 for Vista in the first quarter of 2008. This may have the effect of either delaying version 17 or making a release of version 17 only effective until the release of Vista SP1. One of the areas of focus of Vista SP1 seems to be VPN authentication and VPN to Firewall Compatibility. I am really hoping that Linksys is working directly with Microsoft and making full use of their parent company (Cisco). Remember that Cisco worked jointly with Microsoft to develop much of the VPN standards and functionality available between routers and windows operating systems today.
