...finally did it, openwrt router is working properly,
but you were right,
the precompiled cipe.ipk package has an unneccessary dependency to openssl,
it seems to use it only generating a ueless key for the democonfig. if you
don´t install openssl, an ingorable error is printed by the installscript.
over all, setting up this ASUS WL-500 box was much easier as i expected,
after flashing the base with tfpt (1 Minute incl unpacking), i had to install:
pppoecd_1.0_mipsel.ipk for german dsl
I packed ntp & cipe startup in the existing fw-script.
dnat & state-inspection was already done by default, i added two ipt-rules
for the cipe channel, a static route into the vpn, threw the telnet server´s
startup away, ready.
after spending 20 minutes debugging with the openssh server, i threw it away
and installed dropbear_0.44-1_mipsel.ipk as a lightweight replacement.
I cleaned up the scripts a litte, putting all cipe and vpn parameters in the
nvram for easier reproduction.
Including the 20 minutes i wasted on openssh, the whole thing took me less
than an hour, must say without the wifi-stuff, i have no use for it now,
thinking about buying a box without, but this one was the cheapest meeting my
requirements, much cheaper than the first without a wifi-chip.
the flash now has enough space left for a comlete openvpn with openssl ;-)
A nice additional feature is the vlan capability of the integrated switch,
who knows, perhaps useable in future.
