    Kill / restart dnsmasq from remote web interface?

    Yeah, IOT is hot garbage right now... like I said, I even have some no-name company wifi wall switch that does the scheduling onboard so those can turn on/off on schedule., but these don't. Although these plugs are not a "timer" by design, they're for controlling things with a phone/wifi.. it's...

    Kill / restart dnsmasq from remote web interface?

    Yeah so... Kasa kinda sucks though. I have some light switches where that works because they store the schedule on-device, but they're not Kasa and IIRC Kasa doesn't do the same, it just sends the commands from the app at those times.. but I'll test them, maybe I'm wrong.... really good...

    Kill / restart dnsmasq from remote web interface?

    This is an interesting idea! I'm not sure it'll work since I'll lose connectivity once it's off to turn it back on... but I have several Kasa plugs, I'll test them to see if I can send an on/off combo. That is... in a few weeks when I get back to the router ;_; Would running a firmware update...

    Kill / restart dnsmasq from remote web interface?

    Well darn.. Not a lot of other ideas. I was doing some scripting to log data to /tmp/home/root/. It was running fine, but it had a lot of conditional sections... maybe one of them went recursive and starting filling the memory or maxing out the CPU? Pretty far out of my depth on linux to be...

    Kill / restart dnsmasq from remote web interface?

    I have an annoying situation. I have a remote router that I cannot access to do a physical restart for a few more weeks. What happened is a little confusing - but basically I have two "dnsmasq" processes running at the same time, and I do NOT have dropbear (ssh) running. How did that happen...

    Safer way to run scripts remotely?

    Nice idea! Trying to go the other way might work, I'm already running an sftp so I could scp the data. Limits my ability to interact with it.. but maybe I could also have it pull a "do this" type of file at the same time or something. Very clunky roundabout but it might just work fine for this...

    Safer way to run scripts remotely?

    Ah yes, I was assuming SSH keypair for login but that means leaving the private key with the program of course which is equivalent to storing the username/pass. You're right about permissions - I wasn't sure there were any methods of restricted access to the router to evaluate if those methods...

    Safer way to run scripts remotely?

    I'm setting up a program that runs locally on a desktop, but will SSH into the merlin asuswrt router and dump the current clients list (using arp for now but I might go for something like this https://forum.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=461340). I'm not very familiar with linux, I haven't...
