    I have DD-WRT v23 (soon to flash SP1) on my WRT54GL which is otherwise stock.

    Is it possible to setup a Radius server on the WRT54GL? Is it possible to run the server off of the RAM instead of JFFS2 in the flash memory? I want to keep my standard version instead of having to move to the mini. The problem being that ipkg's root directory is the /jffs partition (in which there is no space left using the standard version), but ipkg.conf is on read-only flash memory. I wanted to modify the web interface to create a front end for the radius server to add and modify users. Is there a way to edit the DD-WRT configuration web pages or other files in the flash memory such as /etc/ipkg.conf? The binaries I was thinking of using were the OpenWRT whiterussian packages, but are there other better sources that don't require the use of ipkg?

    I posted a longer version of this before on the DD-WRT site forums, and thanks to brainslayer for clearing up my first two questions :).

    I have (sort of) answered my own question and here's what I've come up with:

    To use the OpenWRT FreeRADIUS package you need openssl and openltld. That brought me to the point that many people have come to and stopped which is "Can't resolve symbol 'ctime_r'". The main issue here being that radiusd is compiled for libraries present on OpenWRT, which are slightly different from those present on DD-WRT.

    This forum topic over at OpenWRT helped out, but still came to the same conclusion:

    It would be interesting if DD-WRT and OpenWRT merged. Then you'd have the package system of OpenWRT with the nice web interface and features of DD-WRT.

    Oh well. The only option here seems to be either to recompile freeradius for DD-WRT libraries or switch to OpenWRT.

    Has the situation improved in 4 years?

    Has anyone found a way to setup a RADIUS server on the router with the more current firmware versions?

    You could probably use optware.
