no OpenSSL? I have checked the precompiled binary of CIPE anncounced in the
First thing to look for is the depends (see
http://openwrt.alphacore.net/Packages) - it lists libssl (which normally
means you have to install 1.2 Mb of openssl.
If CIPE does not use that openssl lib, I'am happy to give it a try because
of the very small footprint you mention :)

OpenWRT is mainly for the WRT54g from LinkSys and equal broadcom devices.
I'am still looking for something like CIPE for my OpenWRT based
Freifunk-Firmware. Hence my question: How many flash space do you need to
install CIPE and the dreaded openssl lib?
Sorry, don´t know already, still preparing,
i´ll get the first router this late afternoon.
Why openssl ? As far as I know CIPE doesn´t need it.
And yes: I'am interessted to run CIPE on my WRTs, but I'am concernd >
I believe one of the major reasons to use CIPE on this kind of boxes _is_
low flashmem consumption.
My standard (production-, on LinuxPC-) configfile with comments & key is
about 1K, on PC the kernel mod is 34k, the executable is 80k. That´s 10
times less than OpenVPN uses (see below).
Here´s a list of the precompiled bin modules i already found @

My openvpn (test-)config (On PC) without comments & required clients certs
are about 12k.
If i won´t get it running properly up to Sunday, I will try to get openvpn
(which needs openssl) running on this box.
