2007-07-24 14:18:59     uClinux and openVPN on the BF537-STAMP

Bill Fassler (UNITED STATES)

Message: 41883    I see there is some code in the 2007R1 branch for openVPN but I could not locate any documentation on it.  Is this available for me to configure and build for uClinux on the BF537-STAMP?

Message: 41906    I don't think we have tried openvpn on blackfin. It is taken from upstream uclinux-dist. You may have a tried and tell us if there is problem.

Message: 52189    Bill, i have worked with OpenVPN on Blackfin uClinux platforms. It works just like on any other Linux system. Check out http://www.vpx.nu/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=vpn_solutions for details on how to get started and how to crosscompile it from the sources. regards Hans

Do we just need to upgrade the openvpn in the existing uClinux-dist? (2005.11.02 -- Version 2.0.5 is in the dist, but it is kind of old).

 

And on 2008R1 and trunk - with mdev - the /dev/net/tun should created dynamically - shouldn't it?

Message: 52744    Yes, upgrade to 2.0.9 since it is tested and i believe it is the latest stable release. There is a 2.1rc-something out also but i have not tested it. Someone should give it a spin. Note that my build was a static one and the resulting binary ended up around 1 meg if not mistaken. I would try to add more --disable options to the configure string to make it more slim for the purpose. I guess it could(should?) be built dynamically vs uclibc and libssl nowdays. Bill, keep us updated and dont hestiate to ask for help around the building process. /Hans
