    Thibor -

    Thanks for the update. Everything on MY wish list seems to have finally made it to your firmware. However, I have found a bug in 13d.

    In the port redirection tab, when I enter an external and internal port and save the settings, the firmware will swap the values IF the external port number is greater than the internal value. Try to forward port 8000 to port 80, and then save the settings. When the config screen comes back up, the values will be reversed.

    EDIT: I also tried to redirect external port 3000 to 3389 for remote desktop. This, also, will not properly forward an external port to a different internal port.

    it truly does reverse the ports, i'll fix that asap

    OK, I've uploaded Thibor 13d and flashed my router with it. I did some playing around with the P2P QoS setting and it seems to work nicely.

    HyperWRT seems to be rapidly nearing perfection. Thanks for another great release. :thumb:

    PS: Just curious, how exactly does the block port scans firewall option work?

    Update: Well, I didn't try the new port redirection. ;) I guess we should expect a Thibor 13e soon?

    Update 2: Thibor 13d removed until a fixed version is out.

    I'd be great to integrate SNMP , and I need for my French ISP Free,this protocol to connect , RFC 1483 Routed
    thx :thumb:

    Well, I don't use SNMP, but you may want to look at this thread.

    13d fixed and re-sent to the usual places, as well as my website. Portscan blocking uses the iptables target "psd" and detects a portscan attempt and then blocks it.

    Thibor Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    Kamui: i'm not going to integrate rfc1483routed into hyperwrt. my adsl modem uses rfc1483bridged or routed and then the wrt uses pppoe to connect. i've already stated that i MAY have a look at SNMP, re-posting isn't going to make me do it.

    Thanks again Thibor! Up and running on my GSv4, and it seems the drop down menus are now displayed correctly using Opera 9, instead of displaying Capture before the menu options.

    Hope you don't mind the gumby question, but what does the Filter P2P Applications do...?
  14. bcat

    bcat Network Guru Member

    OK, the fixed Thibor 13d build is uploaded.

    @Thibor: Any idea when the source code will be ready?

    See this thread about integrating SNMP into the HyperWRT firmware versions. It's something you can do yourself.

    You should also remember that the HyperWRT firmware tries to stay as close to the official Linksys Firmware as possible -- so you won't find alot of features (bloatware) that the majority of people don't use.

    If it's a feature you really need, maybe you should look at the dd-wrt firmware.

  17. Thibor

    Thibor Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    sources will be packaged today. "Filter P2P Applications" in the firewall page does exactly that, it blocks p2p both incoming and outgoing
  18. nex666

    nex666 Guest

    it is only possibly to block p2p in general? how can i block p2p just for one pc or a ip range?

    thx ^^


    i found it out on my own already... i used the following iptable rule:

    /usr/sbin/iptables -I FORWARD 1 -m iprange --src-range -m ipp2p --ipp2p --bit --apple --winmx --soul --ares -j DROP

    What is the difference between Port Forwarding and Port Redirection? Both are under Applications and Gaming. The help is the same for both. Just curious as to whether the Port Redirection does something that Forwarding doesn't do.

  20. RonWessels

    RonWessels Network Guru Member

    Port forwarding maintains the port number. So an incoming request on port 999 gets forwarded to the appropriate internal machine on port 999.

    Port redirection allows the port number to change. So you could set up incoming requests on port 999 to get forwarded to the appropriate internal machine on port 1001.

    If you set up port redirection to have the same port number, you have essentially duplicated the port forwarding function. The reason both are there is because port forwarding allows ranges to be forwarded, thus reducing the number of entries.
  21. MarkA

    MarkA Network Guru Member

    Are you saying that you could set up the same ports to be redirected to different machines depending on which ones are requesting the info. I understand that Port Forwarding can only do so for 1 machine at a time. Does Port Redirection overcome this limitation so 2 or 3 machines could be using p2p at the same time?


  22. Thibor

    Thibor Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    you can forward port 2234 for example to port 80 on
    and port 2235 to port 80 on
    and port 2236 to port 80 on
    you see?
  23. MarkA

    MarkA Network Guru Member

    I pretty much see . . . Would the external port be 80 and the internal port be 2235, or vise versa? This is a really cool feature. I haven't seen this on on other firmewares. Thanks for the reply.

  24. Thibor

    Thibor Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    the external port would be 2235, internal would be 80

    Most of the other firmwares (DD-WRT and Sveasoft) had it for a long time. That was the main reason why I didn't consider HyperWRT. But once I learned how to do it using script, I've not looked back and been using Thibor firmware for the past 2 months. I can only say that Thibor HyperWRT is the best firmware of all of them - the most reliable.
  27. MarkA

    MarkA Network Guru Member

    I think so too. I used DD-WRT. I must have overlooked this function. But that's a great tool for a network. I really like the speed, that is, the download speed. The firmware seems to squelch my upload speed quite a bit though: I can't figure out why.

  28. MarkA

    MarkA Network Guru Member

    Question: What would be the external port of P2P apps, such as Bittorrent and Limewire? Port 80 is http, correct? That's the only thing I can think of at the moment I'd use Port Redirection for.

  29. Kamui1407

    Kamui1407 Network Guru Member

    Sorry to bother you with that , but can you tell me why you can't integrate rfc 1483 routed and IPOA ? , because I use a Thomson ST530v5 Adsl 2+ Modem/router behind my WRT54GS, I don't want to use the ST530v5 router features :(
    and use double NAT , and my ISP accept only IPOA or RFC1483 Routed connection so with PPPoE I can't connect :cry: :sad:

    Thx :thumb:

    Which Modem did you use ?
  30. Thibor

    Thibor Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    i didn't say i COULDN'T, i said i WOULDN'T. i use a safecom adsl modem(don't recall the model number offhand). the sources are available for modification. if you want the feature, implement it. that's been my standing all along, if there's a feature you want; do it yourself. if you don't possess the skills, learn how. that's what i did. necessity is the mother of invention, after all

    Upgrated my WRT54G ver.4 from tufu 13c to Thibor 13d. Everything that I have tested is working just fine, including Afterburner :cheer:

    Mybe the readme could be updated to state that this firmware works out of the box in WRT54GS Ver 1 to 4, WRT54GL and WRT54G ver 4,.
  35. Thibor

    Thibor Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    i won't update the readme, my firmware is for GS's. it works on G's and that's good but i won't support it
  36. prowler1968

    Thibor -

    After using a few of the most recent builds, I found things that I missed from other 3rd party firmwares.

    Wake On Lan - you integrated iamqwerty's WOL function.
    Port Redirection - You added that feature at my request (BIG Thanks!)
    DYNDNS periodic Update - Again, added that feature at my request.
    SSH - Another great feature added!
    Parental Control - You went back to the 4.x series Linksys firmware and integrated that back in.

    I know that this is your "hobby", but to those of us in the HyperWRT community, this is the difference between a basic router and a router with high-end functionality. Your firmware is quickly becoming a feature contender with the other 3rd parties.

    What type of update cycle do you have? Now that we are on build 13d, will you progress to build 14? Do you add a 13e to fix any remaining problems in the 13d, or is that fix plus "extras" rolled into build 14? Is there both a 13e and a 14, only 14 getting the "new features"

    Thanks for your great work! This is the most stable firmware that I have used, which says a lot about the quality of your work!
  37. Thibor

    Thibor Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    update cycle? really, come on. like you said; this is my hobby and i don't think that far ahead. there is a 13e or 14 depending on the label i feel like giving it at the time. there aren't any problems with 13d that i am aware of...yet but 13e(or 14) is on the way. exras for the next build is a "Role" label in app based QoS for setting whether the port listed is "Server" or "Client". i've found that setting the p2p port there is f***ing useless as bittorrent in particular uses any port the user defines, so i added this. setting "Server" with p2p makes qos tagging much more efficient than before. hmm, that's about it really although i MAY take a look at extending the DYNDNS code
  38. prowler1968

    prowler1968 Network Guru Member

    Maybe update cycle is the wrong term to use in this case. I just wondered if you typically tried to get a "final" build before moving on to a new series. I tried 13 (original built on the 1.x series firmware, which you replaced with another 13 on 4.x), another 1 or 2 of the builds in 13 (one in which I found the port redirection bug), which you quickly fixed and have updated to 13d. Now running great, btw. It's hard to justify a "pre-final" build for my office network. Home, that's a different story!

    I enjoy trying your various builds and giving feedback identifying problems that need addressing. I'm no programmer, but I can contribute with a bug report or contribution $$ . In return, you've given me firmware which is measurably better than Linksys stock, and you've added functions which I have personally asked to see.

    Thanks. I look forward to the next build! :cheer:
  39. Thibor

    Thibor Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    there have been a number of builds i would've been quite happy to slap a final sticker on. most of the bugs that have cropped up have been very minor(except the reversed redirection)

    Thibor why is your PayPal Donate button that is on the top left of your homepage so small? People that are blind as a bat might miss it. If others click on it and donate will it get bigger? :)

    Is it just me.....

    twice I have installed Thibor13d and twice after setting it all up I save the config. Then I cant log back into the router either from the web interface or through telnet :|

    My new password nor the "admin" password work.

    WRT54GS v1.1
  44. Thibor

    Thibor Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    the code regarding the admin password hasn't ever been changed from default, so i couldn't say why it's not working. try resetting to factory defaults and see if it helps. i've not heard of any similar issue with any previous release though so it's likely that it's local.

    Hi !

    I'm currently using thibor13d firmware and It works very well ! Thank you for this greet firmware.

    It's been 2 days I'm using thibor13d and I noticed that the free ram space is continuously decreasing. 1 day ago, I had about 3000 Kb of free space and now I have 1800 Kb.

    What will happen when It will be at 0 ?

    Futhermore, why some services are not killed when I disable them in the web interface like dsnmasq and syslogd ?

    WRT54GS V4 with thibor13d
  46. Thibor

    Thibor Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    dnsmasq is also the dhcp server so if you're getting dhcp from your router, it's necessary. it also serves as the dns forwarder when dnsmasq isn't acting as a caching server
    i can confirm syslogd still running when log_enable=0; i'll rectify that, thanks for pointing it out.
    i have never seen free memory get to 0, as time goes on the wrt buffers the memory, it's not actually in use. other firmwares like alchemy had the buffers up to around 5 meg. besides that, there is a long known memory leak in the http daemon, the more you use the web interface, the less memory you have...but again, i have never seen it use ALL the available memory. Thibor13e is now very nearly complete and i think i'll be leaving the GS alone after this for a while as my SL54GS's will be arriving soon and i can't wait to get my grubby little mitts on them.

    EDIT** if your syslog is running when accepted and denied are unticked it is due to either:
    1. the syslog IP address is filled in, router messages only will be sent to the specified remote host.
    2. log_file=1, router messages only will be logged to "/var/log/messages". you will need to do "nvram set log_file=0;nvram commit"

    Thats great news about the WRTSL54GS its a cool lookin little router along with a usb port. I can see alot of potential for cool little services.

    13d feature?

    Is it me or is there something wrong with the logging screen? I can't find how to enable the log buttons!

    It's your version of this screen I am questioning:-

    PS The dyndns was the reason I upgraded, the static DHCP, Site survery usage logging etc are all added bonus - and basic functionality stable as a rock - great work Thibor!

    Thibor, does 13d for GSv3.0 have the built in BT fixes inside it?
  50. NateHoy

    NateHoy Network Guru Member

    callous -

    Yes, I am running Thibor 13d and using BitTorrent and having no problems at all. Works great. No need for a startup script, though you may find that playing with the settings in one can optimize your setup somewhat.

    Re: 13d feature?

    Umm.. just select the enable radio button and the incoming/outgoing buttons will enable themselves. With logging disabled, the two buttons would be useless.

    Fedorov Network Guru Member

    Thibor, just wanted to say thanks for this great firmware release - my local PCworld still has WRT54GSv4 models so I decided it was time to replace my ageing 2yr old Belkin which has been flawless.

    Flashing from the original 1.05.03 firmware worked fine (on 2nd run from within the linksys web interface).

    It's been on permanently for the last week with no issues whatsoever :)

    Keep up the great work please - I shall pass on my donation soon as I get chance.

  53. mstombs

    mstombs Network Guru Member

    Re: 13d feature?

    This is what you do in the Linksys firmware and that's what the help text says BUT, in Thibor13d you have to select either

    Connection Logging:
    Accepted or Denied

    and then

    Save Settings

    So re my original question -it was me, and I can get it to work, just wasn't that intuitive!
