Hi All,

I just switched to NordVPN and wanted to try the FlashRouter Privacy App to setup the VPN connection.

https://nordvpn.com/tutorials/dd-wrt/flashrouters-privacy-app/

Following this page it seems simple yet I'm unable to install the app after running the command:

curl --insecure --silent https://api.flashroutersapp.com/api/v1.0/ddwrt/group/privacy/provider/NordVPN/install | sh

I get the processing please wait dialog box but it never says install complete and I can't access the MyPage app GUI.

Is it compatible with firmware 41664? Has anyone got this app working?

Thanks

Yeah, uhm, you should probably try running that command from a telnet or ssh connection, not the webUI commands window.

Your welcome. You may want to send them feedback on their how-to.

An update if anyone else comes looking.

After installing the app via telnet all worked fine until I restarted the router. After that it failed again.

I believe the issue is that the start up script is run in the same way as the GUI commands and so fails.

I have contacted Flashrouters to see if this is a reproducible issue from their end.

Why would you switch to nordvpn now? They were hacked and kept it under wraps for months till they came out with a public statement. Their private key was hacked out of one of their servers which from the hack point till months later that they delt with it anyone with that key could have intercepted and decrypted the VPN traffic. At this point probably just about any other VPN provider is better than them.

I guess I'm not as worried as you. Cool

I read about the hack before making my choice. Nord suits my needs.

I used PIA for a long time and so far I'm happy with the switch. Not regretting my choice despite the 'hack'.
