can anyone help me
I want to install openwrt on a Check Point L-50 . device
I am trying to install OpenWRT 21.02.0 according to this wiki page:
I can access the menu via console or serial.
but i don't understand to do the following steps :
- How to make a backup of u-boot and env ?
- How to backup all MAC addresses of Ethernet ports? before I move on to the next stage.
- how to use kwboot on windows os using tftpd64 application? is kwboot first entered through the tftpd64 application?
in advance, I apologize if it's a little confusing. I try my best and I look forward to your help.
Never hurts to save all the params in the uboot env, just C&P them after running
https://forum.doozan.com/ is a gold mine for Kirkwood owners, not really focusing on openwrt, but there's a ton of useful info about the devices there.
My guess is you first have to (re)boot and interrupt the device during very early stage to actually see the original u-boot, maybe press certain key to halt the boot process.
If you made it to the original u-boot, you may save the stock environment variables first probably all with
printenv. From that point the wiki is insufficient how to backup original bootloader/roms but you may try
help to see what options it give and report back?
Certain checkpoint devices have 2 serial ports, the one on the outside of the device can be a virtual console which will only initiate
after booting the kernel. Maybe check inside the device if there is a
internal serial rs232 pinout which may cover console output during
early u-boot & kernel console.
