    YazDHCP - alpha - Extended DHCP management script

    I was *just* going to suggest what a great opportunity it would be to build some kind of config editor into the GUI for those of us who aren't too familiar with using these methods, and since I just went through this exercise to dump my vpn custom config into an openvpnclient1.postconf file...

    VPN Custom Configuration space limited after upgrade :(

    I'm definitely no expert, and didn't quite understand what @RMerlin clarified, but I believe it's more of a physical NVRAM limitation that is present on the AC86U, but not, on let's say my older AC3100... because I was running the same firmware on both hardware platforms. But huge thanks to...

    'Cosmetic' OpenVPN client bug: VPN's public IP not updated after changing VPN server (in 384.19 / 386.1)

    Same issue for me on 384.19 on the 86U... it's been like that for a while, and don't trust the output. I typically just head over to https://www.iplocation.net/ to see what I am and where I'm at.

    Can't Login to GUI

    So here's a quick update... I just recently acquired a brand new RT-AC86U, and loaded Merlin 384.19 on it from scratch, reconfigured everything from scratch, and only have absolute minimal functionality running. I can't get past about 4-5 days before I'm greeted with the blank GUI. For the...

    VPN Custom Configuration space limited after upgrade :(

    I actually took a lot of notes from this thread: https://www.snbforums.com/threads/expressvpn-merlin-384-15.61656/#post-548393 -- because I was experiencing many of the same issues mentioned here with ExpressVPN... many of these settings in the config along with some of the GUI configuration...

    VPN Custom Configuration space limited after upgrade :(

    Absolutely... I tend to have a lot of hosts in there to perform a remote random when I force a reset on my VPN... my original config looked like this: fast-io server-poll-timeout 10 remote usa-newyork-ca-version-2.expressnetw.com 1195 remote usa-sanfrancisco-ca-version-2.expressnetw.com 1195...

    VPN Custom Configuration space limited after upgrade :(

    I recently upgraded from an RT-AC3100 to the RT-AC86U, and wow... made a WORLD of difference from the VPN side of the house. My speeds have been 5x-6x better than what the 3100 was giving me on ExpressVPN. Only one main drawback that I have not been able to resolve -- ie. for some reason, the...

    Cron job to reset VPN in slot 1

    Ahh. I was trying to figure out why nothing happened at 1am according to the logs... ;) Good call... it's been rebooted now... let's see what happens tomorrow!

    Cron job to reset VPN in slot 1

    Thanks a bunch, Colin! That was super helpful! Learned all about how VI is very unuserfriendly, and how nano was much easier to edit files with too... ;) I really appreciate this... will check the logs tomorrow AM and see how it fared!

    Cron job to reset VPN in slot 1

    Yes, thanks -- that does the trick! So is it just a matter of running a command like: 0 01 * * * /jffs/scripts/service restart_vpnclient1 ?? And this will survive a reboot, right?

    Cron job to reset VPN in slot 1

    LOL.. thanks! So much for being proactive and using the Crontab expression editor! :)

    Cron job to reset VPN in slot 1

    Hi All, I'll admit... I'm just not good at this scripting stuff... but what I am looking for is your help/advice on what it would take to automatedly run a cron job at a specific time each night to simply stop/start or restart the VPN client in slot/instance #1. I figured out that the cron...

    Can't Login to GUI

    That's a great idea... I've moved it up from 3 to 5... 6 was just too much unnecessary chatter... but nothing to report as of yet. I have also disabled regular cache flushes based on some other threads that were saying that perhaps the httpd service is unable to read or losing cached settings...

    Can't Login to GUI

    I can't speak for those not running a VPN Client, but I really think OpenVPN has something to do with it. After a reboot, the VPN traffic is speedy and getting good rates... after a week or so, it drastically slows down and am only pulling about 5Mbps up and down... the CPU seems to be pegged...

    Can't Login to GUI

    Well I spoke too soon... again back to the dreaded unable-to-pull-up-the-GUI-page after a good 1.5 weeks. ;( I'm going to have to let the true bug hunters go after this one...
