Was fighting a bit with the new config of dnscrypt-proxy-2. After 10 minutes was able to get it working. The rest works without issues

NG just released a new .80 version that has unspecified "security fixes"

NG just released a new .80 version that has unspecified "security fixes"

I know, but concrete changes (a la "fixes") are unknown. Only guessing. The last GPL codes from NG/DNI are 1.0.2.74. There was 1.0.2.78 and 1.0.2.80 released after that. Most interesting since 1.0.2.78 is changing uhttpd --> lighthttpd for WebGUI. But not the latest version. This lighthttpd is used in ORBI firmware, so of course its use is step forward in spite of not fresh version.

1.0.2.80 vs 1.0.2.78: changes in "cloud" (ReadyCLOUD): they now are using binary '/sbin/cloud' instead of script. Most probably it is these 'security fixes'. Plus changes in lighthttpd certificates (security fixes(?)). But a lot of CVEs are left :cool:

Also some changes in the 'pot' package (2012):

. . .
/************************************************
* functions implemented in POT flash partition *
* Delta Networks Ltd. (R) 2012 *
************************************************/

. . .



see https://github.com/SVoxel/R7800/tree/master/package/pot for details of what is 'pot'.

I cannot say more, because no GPL source codes for .78 and .80:

Maybe the dnsmasq CVE ?

Maybe the dnsmasq CVE ?
Maybe. But not only.

These are rather new discovery (CVE). 1.0.2.80 still using dnsmasq 2.78 so add also CVE-2017-15107.


P.S.

Had to reset the router and restore the settings from backup. It was asking to set the password. I restarted and it was fine for about a minute, then lost all network access. I couldn't even reliably connect to the router login page. Everything works great now. It sounds like this hits everyone eventually. I was lucky to never have had to do a router reset and restore until now.

What are your opinions about to use a Raspberry Pi 4 for a VPN gateway? Would it be faster than straight from the router openvpn?
IMHO, this is the best way to go for VPN. Don’t know about RP4, but such small devices are powerful enough.

I have used pivpn (wireguard) on rp4, works like a charm!
Personally I leave my router (r7800) do the router stuff and use RP for the rest (pihole dns incl dhcp, hassio, wireguard VPN etc.)

Hello Voxel, i am a newbie here, i have followed your firmware documentation to install entware on 81.1sf, i also installed Kamoj add-on too.
Am i need to install kamoj add-on again after upgraded to 82sf? or do i need to remove kamoj add-on first in order to install 82sf?
btw very happy to work with your custom firmware, compare it with official firmware is day and night different.
