Thread: FYI: Precompiled rsync, thttpd and vsftpd

  1. #1

    rsync support ?

    Has anybody tried to get an rsync server active on the router ?
    This could promote the router to a backup server.

    FYI: Precompiled rsync, thttpd and vsftpd

    Maybe useful for others:

    http://www.wingding.demon.nl contains precompiled versions of rsync for remote backuping, thttpd for webserving with CGI support and vsftpd for simple and secure ftp server.

    Disclaimer: Works for me (TM).

    Therefore I added 'netcat' to the collection

    Where could we find thttpd and vsftpd before? From OpenWRT packages? I extracted tcpdump and strace from them, which are useful.

    vsftpd has been compiled for WL-HDD (In jockey's firmware if i'm not mistaken).
    thttpd was available with PHP 3 and 4 support here: http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=495

    rsync & ssmtp

    Link down? That's strange, it just resides at my provider. Be sure not to forget the 'www.' part in the link.

    Ok, attached the rsync binary.

    New on http://www.wingding.demon.nl/ : ssmtp, to mail data. For example log files, ...

    It's already available on my mail tools but I like the way you organise information on your webpage.

    WL500g package manager

    A central repository for WL500g packages would be nice. Nothing fancy, just a list of package-version.tar.gz files (with absolute filenames!) to start with. Or create our own ipkgs?

    What should the default directory be for the applications? --prefix=/usr/local ?

    Well, the WIKI system is a nice place to start. Info on HOWTO configure and use the packages can be stored and updated there by the users from this forum.

    You can PM Antiloop with packages and he will make them available in the download section.

    Add listen=YES at the end of your /etc/vsftpd.conf

    Make sure you have a user called ftp

    Running rsync or xinetd?

    Hi!

    Did anybody manage to have rsync and/or xinetd running on a wl500gx? I have other packages working (such as samba, dropbear and svn) but did not manage to get rsync and xinetd running.
    I installed it with:
    $ ipkg install xinetd

    and, after executing
    $ /opt/etc/init.d/S10xinetd

    I can't get the daemon to show up in the process list (ps).

    I'm using oleg's latest (excelent work).

    Cheers,

    /rp

    rsync --daemon brings mem-overflow but via ssh it works ... ?!?!

    Hi.

    I have a WL-HDD with OLEG 1.9.2.7-7e and rsync --version = 2.6.8 installed via ipkg.

    First I tried simply to use rsync via the builtin dropbear ssh-daemon, but I got 80-90% dropbear on the cpu and so 10-20 were left for rsync... :-(
    And as like this the transfers were to slow and I don't know if there is a way to speed things up using some special SSH (encryption?) options, I decided to give pure rsync a shot.

    It took me a while to figure out, WHY rsync --daemon did NOT want to start... until I added the "address = IP-ADRESS" to rsyncd.conf, because (I suppose) the rsync --daemon call got confused with the lots of interfaces this OLEG firmware kernel provides: br0, eth0, eth1, eth2, lo (but only br0 has an IP address).

    And now that rsync --daemon does NOT quit directly anymore... I instantly have the next problem ... but this time I think I need some help:

    If I call rsync from my windows-box (rsync version 2.6.8 protocol version 29) (=cwrsync) as follows:

    rsync -rutL --delete --exclude "/RECYCLER/***" --exclude "/System Volume Information/***" /cygdrive/d/ tormen@10.10.10.222::windata/

    I get the following output on the windows (SENDER) side:
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    rsync: read error: Connection reset by peer (104)
    rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(610) [sender=2.6.8]
    ---------------------------------------------------------

    And on the WL-HDD linux (RECEIVER) side in the rsync --daemon logfile:
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Sep 2 02:50:10 rsyncd[171]: rsyncd version 2.6.8 starting, listening on port 873

    Sep 2 02:52:04 rsyncd[175]: connect from WINDOWS-BOX (10.10.10.28)

    Sep 2 02:52:04 rsyncd[175]: rsync error: error allocating core memory buffers (code 22) at util.c(120) [receiver=2.6.8]
    ---------------------------------------------------------

    I tried already to freshly boot with only the necessary processes, but it did not work.
    Maybe my RAM-fs is too full? How can I decrease the size?

    And WHY does the rsync work via ssh???

    What else can I try or do?

    For any help or hint I would be really glad, because I have no idea for the moment what else to try...

    To maybe help you answering me I added parts of /proc/cpuinfo and the /proc/meminfo output at the end of this posting.

    Greetings,

    tormen
