Embedded debug!box: Project Web Hosting - Open Source Software
What is this tool?
This tool allows you to do some file transfer with Embedded Linux devices
running with little endian MIPS processors (many, many WLAN routers are
It allows uploading special applets to the device, start and stop these
applets and configure them using a graphical user interface. These applets
may - for example - run in the background and change the router's configuration
at a given time (I for example change the ISDN configuration of an old
AVM Fritz!Box Fon 7050 over night because of fax adverts - see below).
The application also allows GDB/MIPS to be used to debug the applets and other
executables on the WLAN router (if the router supports the "ptrace" system call).
(You may use "Eclipse" as graphical interface to GDB.)
I planned a graphical development tool (graphical programming language)
for future versions but unfortunately I do not have the time to implement this.
Therefore you have to use another compiler for MIPS...
Advertisment via faximile or telephone is - fortunately - illegal in Germany.
Unfortunately there are some people trying to send us fax advertisements in the
middle of the night. Because they send us the faxes to our phone number the phone
rings all the night.
My first idea to solve this was to install some kind of "whitelist" on our
DSL WLAN router (that also does the telephone handling). Unfortunately the router's
firmware did not have this feature so I thought about patching the firmware.
Unfortunately there were no easy-to-use development tools for Embedded Linux
(my parents must be able to install the software when the router is reset and I
am away) so I had to develop my own development tools...
- GUI for connecting to the router
- Uploading, starting and stopping of special applets via GUI
- Configuring of applets via GUI
- File transfer from/to router's file system via GUI
- GDB debugger backend for debugging self-written applets
- Microsoft Windows (32-bit variant)
- A MIPS (32-bit little endian) based router running Embedded Linux
- A MIPS cross-compiler to develop own applets
- GDB debugger with "TCP remote" support for MIPS to debug own applets
