TM/Unifi - Replacing DIR-615 for good

Finally, managed to remove MicroTik Routeboard RB250G from my setup. The old WZR-HP-G300NH router finally get the much needed firmware upgrade to the latest OpenWRT Attitude Adjustment (r26915) bleeding edge release few days ago.  Someone has managed to get his DIR-825 working here and found that DIR-825 uses the same switch as WZR-HP-G300NH. I managed to add the VLAN tagging and VLAN port assignment manually using the same configuration, this was with the older RC release of OpenWRT that I've flashed many moons back.

I've no idea if this will work for other non-Atheros chip, but if you've a wireless router with the Atheros chip, feel free to get into the bleeding edge. Installation was surely not a straight forward, the trunk/bleeding edge releases are usually without Luci (GUI) preinstalled. You've two choices, one is to download the system upgradable release (sysupgrade) and flash your router from the web interface. All you configuration files will be intact if you go by this route, this includes the WAN and LAN interfaces. What you need to do is just to install Luci from opkg. But for those who're 'stupid' enough to go the hard way (as I've chosen to do), you need to download the packages upfront into your local server and point the opkg configuration to retrive the packages from your local server instead.

How to get Unifi working? Well, in the new Luci interface (yes, the Luci interface is much nicer too compared to the stable release), there is a Switch tab under the Network configuration page. This is where you configure the VLAN tagging and VLAN to port assignment.

Here is the sample of the page (yup, this is not mine.. someone has done this before, why reinvent the wheel :)..


From the above screenshot, your IPTV should be connected to the first port while the rest of the ports are free to be used as normal. Have fun flashing and configuring your router and good luck.

Note: I'm not taking any credit on this .. all thanks to the guy who posted this in lowyat forum as per the link above.

Raspberry Pi + svxlink = Low power echolink node

What is the easiest way to get echolink node up and running on raspberry pi? Surely, get a premade image which has everything inside. I've created one image which can fit into 2GB SD card for this, just follow the following steps to get it up and running:

For hardware, you need to have the following:
Raspberry Pi for sure, with a minimum 4GB SD cardA USB echolink interface, can be commercially sourced or DIY. There are many DIY schematics out there that you could follow.  Here is the configuration on how to get the things working together, courtesy of svxlink.de website:

For software:
Download the following prepared image from google drive, it is based on raspbian-2015-02-16 image and has pre-installed svxlink-14.08. raspi-wheezy-svxlink.img.zipUnzip the file and copy it to your SD card using the following instructions that can be found here.Boot up the RasPi, if you do not have an HDMI monitor, you may want to access the RasPi from your terminal emulator (putty or the like), connec…

Configuring TechniColor TG784N V3 (Maxis issued broadband router) to use different DNS servers

Previous write up deleted. It seems to change the DNS servers in as shown on the status, but it does not really work.

Check the following website, this seems to work:

This can be done from the WEB GUI too, go into the following configuration path:


In my example above, I'm using paid service unblock-us instead of google public DNS servers.

Debugging DMEE

I've come across many posting on the Internet (via google search), people asking on how to debug a DMEE for payment program. One of the few suggestion was to create a user exit just before the node that we would like to debug and put our breakpoint there. It seems that SAP has built-in this feature without needing us to create a user exit (available in ECC 6, have no idea if this is available on prior releases). Here is how you can put your breakpoint without any coding.

1. Display your DMEE tree using transaction: DMEE_DEBUG.


2. Click on the node that you would like to debug.
3. Go to conditions tab, you could see the Set Breakpoint button. Click to set.



4. Run the SAPFPAYM and specified the payment run date/id, payment format etc. SAP will stop at the node which you point your breakpoint at, as in 2.
5. To remove your breakpoint, just run the DMEE_DEBUG again, there is an option to delete all own breakpoints or all.
