    AdGuardHome IPTables blocking TLS port 853 from other hosts

    While testing out an AdGuard Home instance on a Docker container, it failed to reach upstream TLS servers. Upon closer inspection, I traced the packets back to the AX86U router IPTables. There is a chain called "DNSFILTER_DOT" that is blocking any packet on port 853 that is not destined for...

    LAN port isolation HTTPS (TLS/SSL failure)

    Hi all I isolated a LAN port on a AX-88U using the method as described here by Renjie Wu. Props to you sir. It is used to isolate some equipment (cameras and NVRs) that belong to the neighborhood I live in. It worked like a charm for a while but...

    Secure method to share video files (sftp or AiCloud) with non-tech friends

    Hi, Errata: I would correct the title: (other than sftp or AiCloud) I'm looking from you folks to give some ideas for a secure file sharing method using the standard daemons available with Asus or Merlin firmware. I'm not into using command-line configs like vsftpd through entware or similar...

    FTPS / FTP TLS WAN access broken again?

    Just noticed yesterday that my brother couldn't reach my FTP share over TLS, this has been working great for a long time. I found this old thread where DATA ports weren't dynamically opened, and I'm having the exact same symptoms as described in the old thread. @RMerlin refers to a fix in the...

    Unable to connect to AP from firefox

    Hi, this is for a RT-AC68U from both windows and Mac with firefox. It shows in status bar the message "making TLS negotiation with xxxx" and ends with time exceeded. But, I can connect from Safari (from the Mac) and also with Firefox from another Linux machine. Any idea about what the problem...

    Using DNSSEC & TLS together?

    Came across an older blog post that mentions DNSSEC is pointless when TLS is set up correctly. I know when I've configured my DNS for Cloudflare, it constantly throws errors about DNSSEC not configured or supported by upstream DNS servers. So my question is, assuming I'm using TLS correctly, do...

    Can't access Asuswrt-Merlin login via HTTPS

    Is there a browser configuration that needs to be made when you configure Asuswrt-Merlin (currently 384.4_beta3) to be accessible via https://<router's ipaddress>:8443 ? Using Firefox 58.x and 59.0, the browser displays the following and eventually times out.

    Any plans to support more TLS Crypt ciphers for OpenVPN?

    They started blocking VPNs where I live and it seems like tls-cypt seems to be still working when used with TLSv1.2/TLS-ECDHE-RSA-WITH-AES-256-GCM-SHA384 (That's why my phone used automatically to get access to the VPN). I tried looking for this TLS cipher on asus merlin (I am using the latest...

    FTPS / FTP TLS does not work in 380.67

    Hi Folks, I am trying to make use of the new feature FTPS (FTP TLS) in 380.67 version but without success. I enable the TLS for the FTP and also the access from WAN and when try to connect to the router's FTPS service from a remote location with FileZilla client, the connection is established...
