    Is it possible to make the WRT listen on a port for incoming tcp connections and handle them the way xinetd does on a regular unix box?

    I've got a small bash script which acts as a "blackhole proxy" in combination with no-ads.pac to block advertisements/banners etc. ( and

    I know it is possible to run this script on a linux based machine with (x)inetd running, but the WRT doesn't have this afaik. Is there another way? Perhaps using sveasoft/other hacked firmware?

    found a way through the "nc" command and some simple sh scripting, not optimal yet, but I'll publish it whenever it is good enough ;)
