My home server is set up to backup pretty much every device in my network automatically every day. So I figured why not also backup my AVM FritzBox router. In case it breaks or an update fails and it has to be reset, I can easily restore a backup with all settings, phone book entries, logs etc.
Fortunately, there is a very basic interface for automation, so it is possible to shell script the process of exporting the entire configuration.
My Asus WL500g Deluxe router is running an Eko build of DD-WRT, which comes with IPv6 support. They haven’t yet included it in the official releases for some reason. However, there is still no ISP offering native IPv6 here. It’s a shame. So some sort of tunnel is needed to finally equip my LAN with an IPv6 subnet.
I didn’t really trust those tunnel brokers, so I tried a 6to4 tunnel.
