Netinstall from a ROS device?

Sat Feb 13, 2021 10:48 am

Hi,

I've been wondering and searching the net and this forum about this. Maybe I am too blind to find information on this, but maybe there is no info.

Is it possible to run the `netinstall` server component on a ROS device? As in, use an MT router to reinstall a broken AP? All I can find is a Windows and, as I have found out very recently to my great relief, a Linux version of `netinstall`, but is there a way to do that from ROS?

Cheers,
Toby.

No, there's no netinstall tool for ROS.

It should be possible with a remote-netinstall over a EoIP/VPLS tunnel, with a Linux/Windows host on the other side?

Given fragility of netinstall process which is likely to fail even with direct UTP connection between netinstall server and routerboard device ... it would surprise me if this would work. I'm not saying it's not possible though ...

Bummer. That would be a really nice feature to have.

Thanks for your quick reply!

Cheers,

Hm... :) Interesting idea. If I find the time, I'll look into that.

THX!
