[SOLVED] AutoSSH support?


My current workflow uses SSH tunnels a lot to work around firewalls and questionable ISP policies. To ensure the tunnels stay up, I use autossh, which reconnects the session automatically if it drops.

Hence, the questions:

  • Is autossh available among the Omnia packages?
  • Did anyone try it?

P.S. I’m asking because I don’t have my Omnia yet.

as I just checked on my Omnia its repositiries doesn’t contain autossh package but sshtunel that should be functionaly identical (as writen here https://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/autossh) and as you know Omnia is OpenWRT based router so if you want specificaly autossh you can get that package from alternative source (other repo, git and so on).

And to your second question, I didn’t tried it so I’m sorry but I can’t give you more details about this.

Which SSH server does the Omnia use? Dropbear (the one used by OpenWRT) or openSSH?

The real stuff.

root@kukuzi:~# /usr/sbin/sshd -BLUBBER
/usr/sbin/sshd: unrecognized option: B
OpenSSH_7.2p2, OpenSSL 1.0.2h  3 May 2016
usage: sshd [-46DdeiqTt] [-b bits] [-C connection_spec] [-c host_cert_file]
            [-E log_file] [-f config_file] [-g login_grace_time]
            [-h host_key_file] [-k key_gen_time] [-o option] [-p port]
            [-u len]

Ok then, I guess it will just be a matter of installing sshtunnel. I’ll report back once I have findings (my Omnia just arrived today).

Set up sshtunnel, all working as intended.
