It's seems is much more difficult to use a reconnect script that running pYload from scratch...

I'm trying to use this simple script:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
killall pppd >/dev/null 2>&1
sleep 5s
pppd file /tmp/ppp/options.wan0 >/dev/null 2>&1
sleep 5s
ping -c 1 www.heise.de >/dev/null 2>&1
As I wrote before, to change my IP address I simply need to disconnect and reconnect my WAN if, cause my PPPoE connection is completely handled by router (modem is bridged).

If I run manually this script line by line it works fine.
Putting it into a sh file (with +x) I have redirect errors for every line contiaining >/dev/null 2>&1.
Changing every >/dev/null 2>&1 in >/dev/null2>&1 no more errors, and running this script from sh works fine, my IP address is changed everytime I start this script.

Now...
I configured pyLoad to use this script, enabled reconnect, and used the full path for Method.

I've tried to donwload a multiple-file from EasyBytez and this is my log:

Code:

As you can see it seems that the script is started but the IP doesn't change....

Why if I run from shell the script my IP changes and this doesn't happens in pyLoad ?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.
Should be an easier way to restart wan with a single input like "restart-wan" but I can't remember now.

ASUS RT-N56U

Works like a charm on ASUS RT-N56U with custom firmware 3.4.3.7-072

For newbies like me just a tip:
install openssl-util using opkg to generate ssl keys.

pyLoad with ExtractArchive Plugin and miniDLNA pointing to pyLoad downloads folder is awesome to watch tv series and movies.

Thanks for the excellent tutorial.

No more access to WebUI after Firefox 33 upgrade

I had to downgrade to FireFox version 32.0.2, cause 33 doesn't allow me to connect to my local PyLoad/Entware installation using https with the following error:

Code:
sec_error_invalid_key

**** UPDATE ****

I've just found a way to solve this problem.

Follow the tutorial in the first post, but at step 4, change the ssl keys creation code as shown here:

Code:
/usr/sbin/openssl genrsa -out ssl.key [COLOR="Red"][B]1024[/B][/COLOR]
/usr/sbin/openssl req -new -key ssl.key -out ssl.csr
/usr/sbin/openssl req -days 36500 -x509 -key ssl.key -in ssl.csr > ssl.crt
Then reboot your router.

Now I'm again able to access to the PyLoad WebUI from Firefox 33.

Ntfs will never work reliably on linux.
Thanks for the response; 2 questions:
  1. How can I tell the current formatting of my attached HDD? I believe its ntfs and works flawlessly?
  2. If i try installing pyload with ntfs will it work, just not reliably?
Thanks!

1) Check with "mount" command
2) Try and see

Lot of problems in the last days...
Freshly reinstalled but at first system check, py-OpenSSL is missing.
Manually installed but I'm not able to connect using HTTPS to my pyload GUI...

Hello TeHashX,

On step below i got "error"



After run this all of the questions are skipped (i can't enter values). All fields left blank and without any errors openssl command stop working.
What can i do in this situation ?
Thanks for any reply.
This is openssl utility from firmware. I've updated pyload to last available revision and made some dependencies optional (including openssl-utils). Pyload package will show following note after installation:
Code:
opkg install pyload
...
Configuring pyload.
Please install optional pyload dependencies first.

* for SSL connection with WebUI:
opkg install pyopenssl openssl-utils

* for several hosters, ClickNLoad feature:
opkg install duktape

* for captcha recognition for a small amount of plugins:
opkg install python-imglib tesseract

* for RSDF/CCF/DLC support to decrypt container files:
opkg install python-crypto

* for using ExtractArchive plugin:
opkg install unrar unzip

And only then configure pyload by
pyload --configdir=/opt/var/pyload
If last Entware update broke SSL WebUI, run:
Code:
opkg --force-depends remove pyopenssl
opkg install pyopenssl

Code:
[email protected]:/tmp/home/root# opkg install openssl-utils
Unknown package 'openssl-utils'.
Collected errors:
* opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package openssl-utils.
And this should be an error in filename i think, it should be openssl-util instead of openssl-utils.


Code:
[email protected]:/tmp/mnt/MYASUS/entware/share/python/pyload# python pyLoadCore.py --changedir --configdir=/opt/etc/pyload/.pyload
python: can't open file 'pyLoadCore.py': [Errno 2] No such file or directory
[email protected]:/tmp/mnt/MYASUS/entware/share/python/pyload#
This because pyLoadCore in not installed in /opt/share/python/pyload but in /opt/share/pyload
Finally.... S51pyload should be edited to use the correct configdir.

After that... my pyload starts, but I'm still unable to connect using https from Firefox...

Code:
(Codice di errore: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long)
http connection works fine.
pyload client on my Android phone seems working fine with SSL...

This is drivng me crazy...

Going a little bit out of topic... after all these troubles, now I'm not also able to run amule due to a missing libcrypto++8...

Please read tips from pyload carefully.
Can you please be more detailed ?
I cleaned my entware installation, installed pyload and relative deps, as suggested by pyload after installation.
Then I changed config dir and followed the tutorial in first page, but using /opt/share/pyload instead of /opt/share/python/pyload.
pyLoad cfg has been done using my configdir /opt/etc/pyload/.pyload instead of pyload --configdir=/opt/var/pyload.
Installed pyopenssl is 0.13.1-1, pyLoad 0.4.9-20150804-1.
No success also cleaning pyopenssl deps...

Try install it from scratch too.
Code:
[email protected]:/tmp/home/root# opkg update
Downloading http://entware.wl500g.info/binaries/entware/Packages.gz.
Updated list of available packages in /opt/var/opkg-lists/openwrt.
[email protected]:/tmp/home/root# opkg list amule*
amule - 2.3.1-1 - A multi-platform eMule-like ed2k client
amule - 2.3.1-2
[email protected]:/tmp/home/root# opkg install amule
Installing amule (2.3.1-2) to root...
Collected errors:
* opkg_download_pkg: Package amule is not available from any configured src.
* opkg_install_pkg: Failed to download amule. Perhaps you need to run 'opkg update'?
* opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package amule.
[email protected]:/tmp/home/root#
What the hell means ???
Is available after a package list update but not availabe for download ?

Thanks again for your help
