To enable telnet access on a Netgear DG834(G)

http://192.168.0.1/setup.cgi?todo=debug - this launches utelnetd -d

There is no root password so while enabled, everyone on the lan will have telnet access. Disable in the terminal by typing "killall utelnetd"


To enable ppp debugging

http://192.168.0.1/setup.cgi?todo=ppp_debug      This puts pppd in debug mode and logs the establishment of the connection - LCP traffic to /tmp/ppp_log NB the output includes username and encrypted password.

http://192.168.0.1/ppp_log    To view ppp_log

Delete ppp_log


To enable VPN debugging

http://192.168.0.1/setup.cgi?todo=vpn_debug

Select between Modem Only Mode (PPPoE bridge) and Router Mode

This is not particularily useful unless your connection is 100% stable as the Netgear's host file will be reset every time the PPP connection is re-established after a drop.

Enter IP address <space> hostname (eg. 192.168.0.10 mel.lan)
