#4941 closed enhancement (fixed)

Request upgrade of wdiag to v0.10

Reported by: openwrt@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: packages Version: Kamikaze 8.09
Keywords: Cc:


Last August I worked with Josh Carrol (the developer of the wdiag software) to help make it compatible with an additional model of Westell router, and to make the software work on machines with more than one NIC by specifying a listen address rather than just binding to the first interface, this resulted in the 0.10 release of the wdiag software.

I hadn't realised that wdiag was included in openWRT (perhaps it wasn't in whiterussian which I was using at the time) but anyway I see it is included in kamikaze, but the version is still 0.9, I'm sure I could cross-compile a suitable executable from the 0.10 source, but is there an "official" way to request building an updated .ipk that would benefit other openWRT users too?

I'd also be interested in gathering the ADSL stats from wdiag into a format suitable for use by an SNMP agent.

Trivial patch to bump wdiag version to 0.10, tested and working on 8.09 mipsel

Requires a firewall entry under traffic control, advanced rules, to allow the westell multicast stream to be received.

Name=Westell diag

A more specific firewall rule

Name=Westell diag

You could make it completely specific by setting the source IP to the IP of the router itself, or by MAC address.

Is there any reason why this wasn't pushed to 8.09.1 ?

Why is akismet rejecting this comment? Adding more text to try to fool it into believing this is a valid message.
