OLSRd for Ubiquiti AirOS

/!\ Since UBNT dropped the official support for the SDK i will discontinue my work on these patches. I recommend switching to vanilla OpenWRT.

Hardware description: http://www.ubnt.com

Ubiquiti Networks provide a SDK for their Firmware (AirOS). The SDK and the cross-compiler Toolchain can be found at the support section of their homepage. I created patches for the SDK 4.0.1 and 5.3.3 which support most of their products. It got tested on NanoStation5 and PowerStation5 as well with Airgrids but it should work on any Ubiquiti product (as long as it is supported by AirOS 3.x/4.x or 5.x images). My Testimages can be found on our build server http://build.ffgraz.net/ubnt/. The Images contain olsrd and some modfifications in order to build and install it. It also contains a modification of the webinterface which allows the use of no gateway at the network configuration because a static default route destroys dynamic routing.

{i} This patch doesn't change anything at the kernel config or the wifi driver in order to preserve the stability and functionality of the original firmware. This means that my patched firmware has no adhoc mode.

You can build your own Image on Debian/Ubuntu by invoking the following commands:

SDK 4.0.1

/!\ Due to size restrictions of the rootfs of 4.0.1 SDK i had to disable all olsrd plugins except for dyn_gw and txt_info. If you want to build images with another selection of plugins you have to edit apps/gpl/olsrd.mk.

# mkdir ubnt-4.x
# cd ubnt-4.x
# wget http://www.ubnt.com/downloads/sdk/toolchain-mips-ls_0.1-1.deb
# dpkg -i toolchain-mips-ls_0.1-1.deb

Download SDK.UBNT.v4.0.1.4978.tar.bz2 from ubnt.com

# tar xjf SDK.UBNT.v4.0.1.4978.tar.bz2
# wget http://build.ffgraz.net/ubnt/AirOS%20v4.x/XS2.ar2316.latest/patches/UBNT_SDK4.0.1_files-03.tar.gz
# wget http://build.ffgraz.net/ubnt/AirOS%20v4.x/XS2.ar2316.latest/patches/UBNT_SDK4.0.1_with_olsrd-01.patch
# cd SDK.UBNT.v4.0.1.4978
# patch -p1 < ../UBNT_SDK4.0.1_with_olsrd-01.patch
# tar xzf ../UBNT_SDK4.0.1_files-03.tar.gz

now we have to download and copy the olsrd source

# cd apps/gpl/olsrd
# wget http://www.olsr.org/releases/0.6/olsrd-<version>.tar.bz2
# tar --strip 1 -xjf olsrd-<version>.tar.bz2
# rm olsrd-<version>.tar.bz2
# cd ../../../
# make xs5

You can build a image for 2.4GHz Hardware by replacing the xs5 with xs2.

After building the Image it can be installed via the AirOS Webinterface. If the interface complaints about a wrong image file you have to upgrade AirOS to a newer version which allows the use of third party firmware images (AirOS 3.1.1 worked for me).

SDK 5.3.3

/!\ There are some major bugs in SDK 5.5 which i wasn't lucky to track down so far. So i decided to upgrade OLSRd for 5.3.3 and fix some bugs which i discovered while porting the patches for 5.5.

# mkdir ubnt-5.x
# cd ubnt-5.x

Download SDK.UBNT.v5.3.3.tar.bz2 from ubnt.com

# tar xjf SDK.UBNT.v5.3.3.tar.bz2
# wget http://build.ffgraz.net/ubnt/AirOS%20v5.x/latest/patches/additional-files.tar.gz
# wget http://build.ffgraz.net/ubnt/AirOS%20v5.x/latest/patches/olsrd-package.patch

# wget http://build.ffgraz.net/ubnt/AirOS%20v5.x/latest/patches/fffversion.patch
# wget http://build.ffgraz.net/ubnt/AirOS%20v5.x/latest/patches/lighttpd-mod-airos-exploit-fix.patch
# cd SDK.UBNT.v5.3.3
# patch -p1 < ../olsrd-package.patch
# patch -p1 < ../ubnt-web-with-olsrd.patch
# patch -p1 < ../optional-default-gw.patch
# patch -p1 < ../fffversion.patch
# patch -p1 < ../lighttpd-mod-airos-exploit-fix.patch
# tar xzf ../additional-files.tar.gz
# cd openwrt
# make

After building the Image it can be installed via the AirOS Webinterface.

If you have successfully installed the image you can turn on olsrd using the enable button at the services section of the Web Interface. By default the following Configuration is used

# OLSR.org routing daemon config file

# Lines starting with a # are discarded

    # LinkQualityMult 0.5
    # LinkQualityMult default 0.8

You can also download your own olsrd.conf via the Webinterface. If you download an own configuration file be sure it includes the configuration lines for the txtinfo plugin as this plugin is needed by the Web Inteface to show the OLSR Info.

If you want to edit the olsrd.conf via ssh or telnet you have to make sure that it gets stored inside the persistent storage area of the flash. Create the Configuration file inside the /etc/persistent/ directory and invoke the following command:

# /bin/cfgmtd -p /etc/ -w

After that you have to reboot.

Old Versions

Older Versions as well as the patches used can be found on our Build Server http://build.ffgraz.net/ubnt/. /!\ Images older than 3.6.1.security1 or 5.3.3.security1 contain a bug which allows a remote attacker to install malware on your router please don't use this images.

SDK 3.5

{i} This older versions contain a olsrd.conf for olsrd prior to 0.6.0 which shouldn't be used with newer Versions of the daemon.

SDK 3.4

  • Patch v01: (Patch, Files, Image XS5, Image XS2):

    • This is basically the same as Patch v01 for SDK 3.3.2 (no need to patch mkfwimage.c and fwsplit.c any more)

SDK 3.3.2

SDK 3.2.3-rc

This is SDK is quite old and only supports Nanostation, Litestation or Powerstation. Don't use it for Bullets or other newer hardware.

SDK 3.2
