    Does zeroshell support dvb cards? I want to create router for the Internet via satellite communication system. If it does not support this, I want to add this functionality.

    No, it doesn’t support dvb cards. I have to investigate about the presence of the kernel module to drive this type of cards. I don’t know what type of protocol (PPPoE?) satellite connections use, but if it is not too hard, I hope to support them in the future releases of Zeroshell.

    About dvb cards. Satellite connection works via it’s on protocol. It’s preferable to support “One-Way (Simplex) Scheme” you can read about this here http://satgate.net/en/solutions/. You can establish link via VPN and via Static channel. Static tunnel is more preferable, because it is much more stable. To create it you can use “ip” command

    ip tunnel add Tunnel0 mode ipip local $YOURIP remote $DESTIP

    Before it you should to create dvb interface.

    /usr/bin/dvbnet  -p $PIDNUMBER
    /sbin/ifconfig dvb0_0 $DVBLOCALIP/32 hw ether $MACADDR up

    Finally you should zap the signal

    /usr/bin/szap -c channels.conf -n 1 –x

    Then satellite dish is ready.
    Can you add this functionality to you web based admin panel. I have some ideas and scripts, but unfortunately I have no time to implement them. Please check your pm. I’ve send a message for you.

    Thanks a lot for the information. I will try to implement satellite connections in the future, but I don’t think to be able to implement them in the next release.
