Where's the logfile?

Post by chuser »

I had an issue where my connection was not responding. I couldn't find the option to view the logfile anywhere. Sometimes my provider decides there's an issue with my account and cuts me off, and I'll get a "password rejected" message, so I know to call them. This time, it was the new neighbors unplugging my connection. But I couldn't see where to view the logfile, which option is it under?

Device Name:Gargoyle
Gargoyle Version:1.12.0
Model:NETGEAR WNDR3800

You can install the "logread" plugin if you find the GUI easier to work with.
Otherwise on the command line, the "logread" command does the same thing.
Note that the log is rotational, so it will only show you the last X minutes or hours depending on how much information is being posted to the log.

Where can I find this plugin? I can't find it on this site or by search.

Go to the System -> Plugins page on your router and install it from there.
Alternatively, use the command line option.

1. You must be connected to the Internet with a router!
2. Press the "Refresh Plugin" button (this will load more plugins from the Internet).
3. Find the plugin you want and install it.

I tried refreshing but just got the same list; still no logfile add-on present.

Then your Gargoyle router does not have internet access.
You can try logging in via ssh to the gargoyle router and running the command?

Code: Select all

ping www.gargoyle-router.com

P.S. You can also install the plugin manually (but keep in mind that the plugin cannot be uninstalled using the GUI, you have to do it again manually via ssh):

Code: Select all

gpkg update
gpkg install plugin-gargoyle-logread_20120724-4_all.ipk

Ah. I'm in China, behind the Great Firewall. Logging in to the router gets ping: bad address 'www.gargoyle-router.com'. I suppose the site is blocked, for what reason I have no idea.

I have a VPN, but it I it's on my PC and it uses a Windows client. It has these instructions to connect to a DD-WRT router but when I try Configure Client Manually I get a "Error: could not find config file". :(

It also has instructions for AsusWRT and TomatoUSB/Advanced Tomato Routers, but I thought Gargoyle was most similar to DD-WRT.
