I have the ntfs.o on my router under the jffs folder and working correctly. I also set it up to auto insmod upon startup. For those having issues with this go under administration - commands and enter

insmod /jffs/ntfs.o

then on a the next line whatever mount command you use which can be dtermined by running a dmesg in telnet

mount /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1 /mnt

and hit save startup.

HOWEVER!

I can see my ntfs partition just fine after mounting it using ftp but I can not write to it. I get this warning:

NTFS: Warning! NTFS volume version is Win2k+: Mounting read-only

Any ideas on how to make it so it is not read only? I have tried nearly everything I can think of

Any chance to have those two modules for 2.4.37 ?

Thanks.

NTFS has some versions, the first one starting with Windows NT 4.0. If i remember right, NT 4.0 SP6 had some changes and NTFS formated on NT4 SP6 was not readable on NT 4 w\o SP. Current NTFS version on Vista\XP SP3 is something like v4 or v5.
If you really need NTFS write support, try to format drive with oldest NTFS version (on NT4 no SP PC) or with latest (XP SP3 or Vista PC).
As NTFS should be backward compatible, most likely it is worth trying to format disk on NT4 no SP machine.

Or maybe that NTFS driver is read-only "by design".

Hi,

I'm a new user too, but not totally newbie in linux!
I've now got my HDD mounted and can read files via FTP Client. But, if I mount with the startup script seen in SethG911's post, I can only see the last of my 3 partitions on my usb-hdd!

Startup Script:

insmod /jffs/ntfs.o
mount /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1 /mnt
mount /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part2 /mnt
mount /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part3 /mnt


did anybody know where i've done the mistake?


also i've got read-only! is there really no possibility to write on a ntfs disc?
im excited of dd-wrt but these linux issues make it difficult for microsoft desktop users!

So long...

mount /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part2 /mnt
mount /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part3 /mnt

very simple - you mount all 3 partitions to the same folder - so you can see only last one.
solution - make 3 directory in /mnt (command mkdir /mnt/d1; mkdir /mnt/d2; mldir /mnt/d3) and exec
/dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1 /mnt/d1
/dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part2 /mnt/d2
/dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part3 /mnt/d3

Hi,
I'm currently using dd-wrt.v24_vpn_generic.bin V24preSP2 13064 in a DIR-320. The openvpn is really important to my use.

After downloading the package at the 1st post transfered the contents to a temporary directory at /tmp of the DIR-320.

insmod of the usbcore, acm, etc and all shows in dmesg as loaded ( lsmod confirms ).

To the point: I want to support a external usb mass storage. ext2 could be the fs. Looks like that
something is missing or no loaded.

is scsi missing ? or not implemented in this kernel ?

Anyone can help me with this ?

I already read this article. After looking more deeply to the modules available at the vpn firmware I think that the only way is the mega firmware over usb.

are there any openvpn + usb support firmware under 4MB size ?

You can try to use a mini_usb_ftp firmware and install optware. Optware has a OpenVPN-server, too.

NTFS is only supported in read-only mode at current stage. DD-WRT is running kernel 2.4 which doesn't have built in support for NTFS. There have been some discussion on ntfs-3g (supports ntfs read/write and is stable) driver for 2.4 kernel on this forum. Use search.

Other options would be to format your hdd as ext3. There's a free driver on the i-net that adds ext3 support to windows.

Wait for dd-wrt 2.6 kernel to come out. It will support ntfs read/write since it's built in into the kernel.

This says it all, there are ways to put ntfs-3g on kernel 2.4 but it's not reliable.
But about waiting for de dd-wrt 2.6 kernel coming out, are they even working on it? This kernel was launched about 6 years ago and we are still using the 2.4 kernel.

They are working on it. dd-wrt K2.6 has been launched for wrt320. Wrt-610 is next on the list.

K2.4 is better on embedded systems' limited resources that's why it's been in use for so long. K2.4 is still being developed by the way.
