    I read on Thibor's site that you can configure the SES button, but I can't find where.

    I'm guessing it's a command you need to run. Anyone know what it is or how to do it?

    I entered "SES button" in the SEARCH feature and WOW there it is :)

    I see my post, but no other specific posts (nor remotely related ones) on SES Configuration?

    This is from the Tofu readme, perhaps it will be of help to you. I can't verify if it works on Thibor because I haven't tried.

    If SecureEasySetup is disabled (Advanced Wireless settings), the Cisco button is converted into a wireless on/off button which is the same thing as doing an "ifconfig eth1 up/down" command. You can also run a custom script by creating one at /tmp/ses_button. Here are a few examples that can be entered in the startup script:


    echo "#!/sbin/reboot" > /tmp/ses_button
    chmod +x /tmp/ses_button

    start/stop telnetd

    echo "#!/bin/sh
    killall telnetd || telnetd" > /tmp/ses_button
    chmod +x /tmp/ses_button

    Yep, Just tested that with Thibor 12 and sure enough, pressing the Cisco logo button shuts down the wireless. Cool.

    Just trying to figure out what those scripts do:
    Writes the reboot command to tmp/ses_button, then allows that file to be run
    Is that command a toggle? ie '||' means do this command, then on the next run do the other one and so on?
