I have an D-Link wireless PCI card model DWL-G510. It has an Atheros AR5005G
Chipset. It is not on the list of supported hardware.
My question is how does this work as far as new hardware becoming supported?
Who would I contact to request support for this card. Does some hardware
just never get supported?
I know the right answer is buy a card that is supported. I am looking for
some other answer. I have the card running under FreeBSD using the Project
Evil or 'ndis' drivers. Obviously this is not secure and uses fricking
Windows drivers on BSD a big no-no. (Hence the name...) Nevertheless, I
would like to know if there is a hack to get my card working under OpenBSD.
I am using it as home desktop and want to set up a simple firewall with it.
If you are going to lecture me on how wrong this all his then don't bother
posting I already know about your religious OpenBSD zeal. Indeed I
appreciate your devotion to security and I believe that is one of the most
desirable assets of the OS. If you have hacked a wireless card or other
network card into OpenBSD then let me know.
Using OBSD 3.6 generic. Have several user IDs set up. Want to allow
ftp access to common area such as /var/spool/pub, but at same time use
/etc/ftpchroot file to "lock up" users in this directory. What is
correct syntax in the /etc/ftpchroot file, and what are correct options
for /usr/libexec/ftpd ?
Currently ftpchroot has:
# $OpenBSD: ftpchroot,v 1.3 1996/07/18 12:12:47 deraadt Exp $
# list of users (one per line) given ftp access to a chrooted area.
# read by ftpd(8).
# list permitted users
/usr/libexec/ftpd -l -l -n -D
The above results in users being locked into their home directory. The
man page for ftpd is not clear enough for me. I also checked the
FreeBSD Handbook. The ftpchroot file can specify a directory after the
user name, but that does not seem to work with OBSD.
