    Hi:
    Thanks in advance for this great work!
    Now, I make my question that I haven't found throught the forum.
    Is there any way to use bash scripts in Asuswrt-Merlin firms?
    I know you can use sh scripts but I have some very complex bash scritps I'd like yo use in the router and I'd prefer not to adapt them.

    Thanks

    Thanks. I'd seen this post, but Entware is necessary to install bash and I don't know if to install it is compatible with Merlin firms...

    I think it is. I’ve seen an entware guide floating around in this sub forum.


    I don’t use it so can’t confirm.
