There are two ways how to access the setup of the Turris router.
The first way is the Foris web interface which serves for settings of the basic network functions like Internet connection, LAN and WiFi settings. Password to the Foris web interface has been set in the first step of the installation wizard. If you have forgot your password follow these instructions.
The Foris web interface can be found on the local address of your router (by default it is set to http://192.168.1.1/).
The second way is to use advanced web interface LuCI and direct access to the terminal as a root user.
The LuCI web interface allows the user to setup majority of all the router functions such as firewall, static address assignment, DHCP service, etc.. Users can monitor the system performance through the LuCI web interface as well.
The LuCI web interface and terminal are powerful tools and it is quite easy to break the functionality of you router if you don't what are you doing!
To access the terminal or the LuCI web interface you need to have the root password set at first. This password can be set on the in the Advanced administration tab in the Foris web interface.
LuCI web interface can be accessed via this direct link http://192.168.1.1/cgi-bin/luci (if you have changed the local IP address of your router please update the link accordingly)
The SSH daemon will start on the standard port number 22 after setting the root password in Foris web interface.
ssh command should be available in all the mentioned systems. If it is not available please try to install it via a package manager. The ssh package usually contains
scp package as well.
ssh email@example.com(if you have changed the local IP address of your router please update the command accordingly)
yesfor the first time.
The whole process should look like this:
user@localmachine:~$ ssh firstname.lastname@example.org The authenticity of host '192.168.1.1 (192.168.1.1)' can't be established. ECDSA key fingerprint is ed:d2:9d:e6:60:42:16:80:c0:fd:64:e6:a5:f6:c3:cf. Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes Warning: Permanently added '192.168.1.1' (ECDSA) to the list of known hosts. email@example.com's password: BusyBox v1.19.4 (2013-12-06 11:42:37 CET) built-in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands. _______ _ _ _____ _____ _____ _____ |__ __|| | | || __ \ | __ \ |_ _| / ____| | | | | | || |__) || |__) | | | | (___ | | | | | || _ / | _ / | | \___ \ | | | |__| || | \ \ | | \ \ _| |_ ____) | |_| \____/ |_| \_\|_| \_\|_____||_____/ BARRIER BREAKER (Bleeding Edge, r38891) root@turris:~#
The usage of the
scp command is very similar to the
ssh command. So if you need to upload a file from your computer to your router use this:
user@localmachine:~$ scp /path/to/the/file/on/your/computer firstname.lastname@example.org:/path/to/the/file/on/the/router
If you need to download a file from your router to your computer just swap the paths:
user@localmachine:~$ scp email@example.com:/path/to/the/file/on/the/router /path/to/the/file/on/your/computer
