    Routing DNS over VPN

    There's a comment in the link I shared: says doesn't work when you specify a source IP. Perhaps that's your situation. The link suggests to only specify a destination IP.

    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.2_6 is now available

    AX86U dirty flash from 386.2_4 to 386.2_6 yesterday. Everything working as expected - WiFi good for both 2.4G and 5G devices. Thanks Merlin. UPDATE-2: had to reinstall Bowers & Wilkins Z2 (AirPlay) speaker to connect to the router on WiFi 2.4GHz, and reboot the router to get this working as...

    Router responding on WAN TCP ports 80 and 443

    Agreed. I confirmed it's my OVPN Server settings that cause port 443 to be open. Thus I deleted my post as it's off-topic. Thanks - interesting post.

    CakeQOS CakeQoS-Merlin v2.0.0

    I would try the Ooma voip on a static IP, and load that static IP address as a Local IP in the rules without specifying any ports (I've been doing this with a Siemens VoIP gateway that uses similar ports with FreshQoS/FlexQoS and now Cake). UPDATE: I removed the Local IP rule for my Siemens...

    CakeQOS CakeQoS-Merlin v2.0.0

    Thanks - that works perfectly. UPDATE: just realized that the default priority queue diffserv3 doesn't include the category "conferencing" which is default category for the given well known iptables rules - so I changed them all to "voice" category. All seems to work fine.

    CakeQOS CakeQoS-Merlin v2.0.0

    Thank you for this!! Installed on AX-86U running 386.2_4. Can I inspect the iptables from the command line to see the rules? I tried this command (but do not see the static IP for a VoIP gateway that I assigned as a Local IP to Voice category): iptables --list

    Blackfin firmware loading

    Simply trying to understand why the WiFi was not working (WiFi stopped supplying internet, but could still access local network).

    Blackfin firmware loading

    AX-86U running Merlin 386.2_2. Found my Router was not providing internet connection over WiFi. I could log in to the Router GUI, and the router stated internet connection was up/working. Did a power-off manual reboot and all good. Looking at the logs for failure, this happens nine hours...

    OpenVPN can access router, but not local shares on lan, what am I doing wrong?

    For the original poster, I got something similar working on two Merlin enabled routers (thanks to xtv for describing avahi) https://www.snbforums.com/threads/creating-a-service-with-merlin-avahi-daemon-invalid-host-name.72111/#post-684744 Requires confidence working on the command line through...

    creating a service with Merlin Avahi daemon : invalid host name (FIXED)

    Got this working over my two OPVN connected Merlin routers for remote connections to two home NAS devices supporting SMB and TimeMachine. Two routers are running Merlin 386.2_2: home router AX-86U with Domain Name "lan" has NAS and OVPN server set up for LAN only. remote router AC-66U_B1 with...

    creating a service with Merlin Avahi daemon : invalid host name (FIXED)

    Creating a hosts. file in /usr/tmp/avahi, and .service file in the /usr/tmp/avahi/services folder then restarting the mDNS service is successful with a NAS SMB service on another subnet: the service group name then appears in the network folder in Mac - which is great. Then clicking on this...
