Who  : Ben Scott
What : OpenWrt - LinkSys firmware enhancements
Where: Room 301, Morse Hall, UNH, Durham, NH
Date : Monday 9 April 2007
Time : 7:00 PM to 9ish

  For the April 2007 SLUG/Seacoast/UNH/Durham meeting, Ben Scott will
be presenting on OpenWrt and related tools.  The focus will be on
initial installation and configuration, and a general survey of
capabilities, rather than a specific application.  A live demo is
planned.

About the presentation
----------------------

  OpenWrt is "a Linux distribution for embedded devices".  In
particular, it is commonly used as third-party firmware for the
popular LinkSys WRT54G line of SOHO routers.  OpenWrt provides a
modular system for customizing the firmware (embedded software) for
such devices.  It can add everything from SSH to VPN to VoIP and more.

  In addition to the OpenWrt base package, X-Wrt and WebIf^2 will also
be covered.  X-Wrt is a set of additional/updated packages for
OpenWrt, which provide even more enhancements, with a particular focus
on end-user experience.  In particular, it provides WebIf^2, an
advanced web user interface for OpenWrt.

  Ben will bring a LinkSys WRT54G device running stock firmware, and
attempt to demonstrate the whole process of installing and configuring
OpenWrt and X-Wrt.  Come see Ben tempt the Live Demo Gods!
