  1. Anyone have one for sale? Thanks
  2. I dont see why not. That would involved changing some routes. Anyone up for doing a simple tracert between two DirecWay boxes? I am guessing, it goes ALL THE WAY back to the NOC and turns around. We could modify it most likely, so that if the two units are on the same satellite, it can use it as a reflector Effectively cuting the lag down considerably. Cheers
  3. In my efforts to provide us with great control of our hardware, I am now able to provide shell access via telnet to the model 7000 unit. From this, you can browse the real time stats, even peruse the virtual file system. I think i will focus on a simple PC App that allows for easy shell access to the modem. Perhapse with some usefull scripts, such as reading values, and making the LED's respond differently. I am open to suggestions for applications, the sky is the limit with these units. We could even port some existing apps to RUN on these units. Even though this seems funny
  4. Thank you for the offer, but I dont have DSL service where I live. Looking for any DirecWay modems
  5. Anyone with any dusty old modems / "fried" units, I am up for paying the shipping. I will have a second dish soon, and need modems for hardware tests. Some will be sacrificed to JTAG / probe.
  6. Ok, I have 20% of the firmware disassembled. I am going through, adding comments to the different regions. Good news, I can actually access the IO's easily enough, as well as compile some simple tcp utilities. I really need to dump the root password, or find a way in to the shell with even greater permissions. I have a script running now, checking port status at different stages, looking for holes. So far port 87 is proving very useful. Cheers
  7. I was able to dump the backup firmware last night. I will spend some time dissasembling today, to make sure the ELF is valid. I might be able to get the image to start in a tornado emulator. More soon Cheers
  8. PM sent. Any donations greatly appreciated, and I canb provide proof of purchase. It will all be used for research. I have a 7000, and a 6000 coming. Adding a 4000, and any others (including dupes) could not hurt. Tonight I will have some time to see about dumping the 7000 firmware. Cheers
  9. As soon as I get a 4000, I will RE it. I have a suspiscion about somethin, the boot config in particular. It seems to me certain things will be easily adjusted / reset once I get a little further with the 7000. I am sure the 4000 is less involved. If anyone has a 4000 (or any system for that matter, dead or not), they want to get rid of, please let me know. It will go to great use. I just bought a complete 6000 system (used) locally, so I can JTAG it and atain root access. Looks like I may have to wire up a serial port on it to get console access. I must also note, the 7000 does in
  10. On second look : "No place else on Ebay can you find a complete system for only $9.95 (activation fee) that includes professional installation included. No upfront cost and a $100 mail in rebate. Yes, we dispatch out an installer to deliver the system to you and install it the very same day! The HN7000S Complete Satellite system comes with the following. " I think he is selling the activation service only
  11. Thats a great deal if it is real. Someone buy a couple, I will paypal you money if its legit
  12. Thanks for the warm welcome. Since cable modem is no longer available, i will focus my efforts on DirecWay The 4000 is the usb model correct? If so, it is still highly modifiable, however it takes a slightly different approach. See these 6000 and 7000's run a RTOS (real time OS) called vxworks, much like the cable modems, some DSS receivers, and a few parts of most modern cars. This provides an enormous amount of flexibility. Because of where I work, I also have access to the WindRiver compilers to create custom builds of vxworks, and add-ons. I can also inject Assembly into empty c
  13. Wow, they are cheap on ebay. I might just do that, However at this point, a 7000 would still be usefull as well.
  14. Update : It looks like I may be able to have the unit send me the loaded and backup firmware images. Worst case I can inject raw ASM to get some handy features working. As a side note, I just realized it is running my old friend VxWorks Same as the surfBoards. Anyone want to start a pool to buy a test 7000 modem ? I had one IM already offering. That or if someone can come up with one, that would work too. Cheers
