Just want to ask something about natcap?


what with this firmwares is it thesame with lede/openwrt? ....

You should probably ask the person who compiled it; but I noticed from just reading:

  • It comes from an untrusted [Chinese] source
  • It's not released by LEDE
  • The HTTPS is untrusted
  • The default subnet is different from LEDE's default
  • The default login is changed
  • Default wireless is changed
  • It appears to include a software called "NETCAP"

Firmware download list
These are commonly used LEDE / OpenWrt firmware. ptpt52 produced, code: NATCAP

Firmware wireless default name: NATCAP_XXXX, password: 88888888
Firmware Management Interface:
Management Interface Account / Password: root / admin

From: https://github.com/ptpt52/natcap

Natcap protocol to break through the firewall. A transparent proxy

(It might be a software to get past the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Firewall)
Hope this helps.

NATCAP is built from OpenWrt Snapshots, supports many devices that OpenWrt does not yet support. You can install it if you can not install OpenWrt.

You can remove service of NATCAP with command line: (replace " with star(*) for full remove)
opkg --force-removal-of-dependent-packages remove "shadowsocks"
opkg --force-removal-of-dependent-packages remove "p910nd"
opkg --force-removal-of-dependent-packages remove "samba"
opkg --force-removal-of-dependent-packages remove "macvlan"
opkg --force-removal-of-dependent-packages remove "upnp"
opkg --force-removal-of-dependent-packages remove "openvpn"
opkg --force-removal-of-dependent-packages remove "aria2"
opkg --force-removal-of-dependent-packages remove "natcap"
opkg --force-removal-of-dependent-packages remove "ddns"

Untrusted certificates on the website aren't a good start.


Since many portions of OpenWrt are under GPL, where are the sources, build chain, instructions, and other required information?

There is nothing on the distribution page, nor on the top-level page of the site


I think they do not follow GPL but they support many devices from China to bypass the ISP's firewall.

They renamed to X-wrt. Just want to add this information on that point.
