I can connect to the router with Putty, but not with FileZilla even though it's configured to use the keys. The error is "Received unexpected end-of-file from SFTP server" and I think it's got something to do with a lack of sftp support by Dropbear. Can anyone confirm?
As far as I know FileZilla uses SFTP protocol. You should try to use SCP protocol (e.g. with WinSCP).


One other question. I added a crontab entry to perform a wget in order to keep my Dynamic DNS up to date from freedns.afraid.org. I have it send its output to a logfile in tmp and don't think it's running. The file never appears.
I recommend to use cron from Entware. It is not so difficult to use Entware downloading initial setup tar from my site. Also, you can use with Entware e.g. ddclient:

https://sourceforge.net/p/ddclient/wiki/Home/

It is perl script (i.e. installation of perl from Entware is needed). I use it w/o problems with freedns.afraid.org.

Thank you. I have a Synology Diskstation. It has a DynDNS client built in, so I just used that instead.

So consensus is to stay away from this version due to issues with the .38 FW?

I'm working with Voxel on this speed issue. So far v.34SF seems good for me.

As we proceed, I'll make results here. There seems to be some issue in the onboard speed testing program in later versions. I believe were trying to narrow down where it comes it at and maybe find a solution.

So consensus is to stay away from this version due to issues with the .38 FW?

Speed issue is only with QOS? I don’t use that as I have 1GBps and there is no need for QOS with those speeds.

Speed test.net app in the QoS UI which possible could effect it. If your not using QoS then I wouldn't worry about it.

All of this is during peak hours here, 5pm time frame so there maybe SOME congestion involvement. Not seeing any where near 200Mb though.

VPN information is located under Advanced/Advanced Setup/VPN Service.
Information about setting up VPN Clients is contained there in.


Where is the OpenVPN client on this firmware? All I see is an OpenVPN server.

Hey.

My QoS Dynamic Settings on R7800 keep resetting when I reboot router. Like the device priority settings :(

What version of FW are you using?
What browser are you using to set priorities? Try IE11 or FF.

Im using the latest Voxel firmware and using Safari to set it, I can set it fine, its just when the router reboots it loses it setting

has this always done this before using other versions?

Might try a factory reset and set up from scratch then set up the priorities. Save a router config to file. Then reboot and see what happens...

Able to login to Telnet using Putty but when starting the OpenVPN client it fails. What I did...

1) create a folder (openvpn-client)
2) put my xxx.ovpn file inside openvpn-client folder
3) changed "auth-user-pass" to "auth-user-pass /etc/openvpn/config/client/auth.txt" on xxx.ovpn file then add my OpenVPN login & password in 2 columns below it
4) added the security certificate code at the bottom of xxx.ovpn
5) login to telnet & issue command "/etc/init.d/openvpn-client start"

Did I missed something?

User id and password should be on 2 different lines (not 2 columns), like:
myname
mypassword

Please provide the log-file if you does not succeed.
It's really easy if you put it on a USB-stick.
After first reboot you can remove the USB-stick . It is only needed at one boot.
If not working try to "reboot" 2 times from within the Netgear Internet GUI.

You should check the log of your OpenVPN. /var/log/openvpn-client.log.

Also please check new article regarding OpenVPN client install, it could be helpful. Guy could customize his installation.

Immediate test after reboot is not quite OK. Better to wait 2-3 min. So now it is OK for you as I guess, and I can publish this version.

Well, why not ;)? You may update your QoS if you did not feel problems with latest QoS. Old QoS is added rather for people who report QoS crashing.
