    It's not really causing any problems, it just surprised me when some of the common binaries weren't in my path.

    I presume that after a successful ssh login the /.profile is executed? So I can just put a command in /.profile to reset the path to be the same as when I log in via telnet?

    Yeah that should work, except (from memory) the profile will be executed from
    $HOME/.profile i.e. /var/hack/.profile. You should be able to symlink /var/hack/.profile
    to /.profile though.

    Sort of newbie to this hacking TiVo lark!

    In last few days have upgraded UK TiVo HD (again),
    but this time added a cachecard & memory, tivoweb , endpad, logos, backupSP, showcase, wishlist, search, new themes, whatson, manual record, now showing, (to install: dailymail_jazz) also learnt how to allocate permissions & ftp the TiVo etc... All working OK.

    Also got a V4 linksys router, flashed it with dd-wrt mini & then standard version. Setup Dynamic DNS.

    Set router allowing putty, with private key ,to let me into router from an outside ip .
    Using Putty I can get into router securely & Telnet from there into TiVo from outside.

    Q. How do/Can I run Tivoweb from this?

    Alton,...
    Set up a port forward in Putty, something like:

    source port - 1234
    destination - tivoipaddress:80

    Then web browse on remote machine to http://127.0.0.1:1234 and you should get Tivoweb.

    Alton,...
    No probs - you probably realise that '1234' can be whatever you want. If you had another Tivo (or say a webserver on another machine) then you could forward port xyz to othermachine:xyz and then browse to 127.0.0.1:xyz ;)

    Anyone have a 'How-To' guide on setting this up on a TiVo ??

    At the moment I am running DynDNS update software on my PC, but ideally would like it self contained on the TiVo itself.

    Thanks

    Northern...
    Been reading this thread - interesting.
    I have bought one of the the Linksys routers and flashed it to use as a wireless bridge. This is probably obvious but can I still use it for dyndns ?

    (I'm not sure whether the orignal poster is referring to the router to Tivo traffic, or the internet to router traffic but...)

    Main reason I can think of for wanting the router to act as a secure reverse proxy rather than just an SSH endpoint, is for situations in which you haven't got access to ssh client e.g. locked down machines, thin clients etc., in which case you'd want to be able to use just the browser...

    I'm currrently hacking about with a Zywall P1 to see if I can load other firmware onto it with the aim of converting it to a secure reverse proxy type appliance (at the rate I'm going it's just for the mental challenge though)
