Useful applications and Optware packages that I run on my Asus RT-AC68U router


This is a list of scripts and Optware packages I am currently running on my Asus RT-AC68U router:

  • nano – pico like text editor (ipkg install nano)
  • vim – text editor (ipkg install  vim)nano is easier to use
  • htop – an interactive process viewer (ipkg install htop)
  • atop – a better top with history monitoring (ipkg install atop)htop works better and offers more information
  • mc – Midnight Commander File Manager (ipkg install mc)
  • transmission – Lightweight BitTorrent client and daemon, with web interface bundled (How to install transmission for Optware on Asus RT-AC68U router)

These scripts and Optware packages I am planning to install:

  • Adblocking script
  • P2Partisan mass IP blocking script
  • Ipkg-web utility too much of a mess to set it up. It will break more then it will fix.
  • Syslog-ng utility (+ libol support library) + logrotate; cannot be used with RT-AC68U, as the default syslogd cannot be deactivated.
  • metalog – Modern, highly configurable syslogd replacement; cannot be used with RT-AC68U, as the default syslogd cannot be deactivated.

A list of all Optware packages, sources and dependencies (not all of them are useful or compatible with RT-AC68U).
