In Topic: Krack WiFi Vulnerability Upgrade (1.03.6i)

3 weeks ago

I cleaned up a bunch of old devices off of the GUI, rebooted, ran the patch and viola! I'm running on 1.03.6i

 

Thanks for the attention to this issue. Hopefully the big companies are updating their firmwares as well.


In Topic: Power loss and loss of settings (device manager and time)

Set whatever you want, reboot using the reboot button in misc settings and your settings will save. Cutting the power will cause a loss of settings.

 

To fix your time (I have no idea why you'd want to do this anyway) go to time, click in the box that says "select time", click set and then update.

 

Ah, didn't know a reboot was needed for the settings to be retained. Based on what I've read here I thought you just need to tick enable cookies.

 

I like the router time to match my local time for troubleshooting, like my VPN disconnect issue.


In Topic: Router log file access?

It seems that the R1 needs to store the username and password in order to log in initially. Or is it used then thrown away? Or is it in /tmp/login_credentials.txt ?

 

Is there a console that the user can invoke?

Another reply from VIA regarding the config script:

 

 

The daily disconnect you are experiencing might be resolved by switching your connection from UDP to TCP. Here are the available port/encryption combinations to try:
TCP
If you're using AES-128-CBC, please use the following settings: TCP 502
If you're using AES-256-CBC, please use the following settings: TCP 501
UDP
If you're using AES-128-CBC, please use the following settings: UDP 1198
If you're using AES-256-CBC, please use the following settings: UDP 1197
 
Additionally, you are using auth-user-pass without specifying a file location. This command should be used with the specification of a file path that points to a text file containing your user name on the first line and your password on the second line. An example of what this command might look like: auth-user-pass /tmp/login_credentials.txt

 

I'm not sure the UDP or TCP is really causing the disconnect. I do not know what the path to the login credentials will be on the R1. Is this information that Fraser or you can provide?

Ok, PIA is now claiming (after I pointed out the error in the log file) that

 

 

In the config file you are missing the path to password user name file

 

Which is shown in this error in the R1

Fri Sep 15 02:35:01 2017 ERROR: could not read Auth username from stdin

So, if Fraser could take a look and let me know how to specify the path (if possible) I would appreciate it.

 

For now I'm running the PIA client on the relevant PCs rather than use the R1 capability.

 

thanks
