Yamaha RTX1000 router
The RTX 1000 router is a now-outmoded highly-robust router made by Yamaha. RTX 1000 is only sold in Japan. You can buy them cheaply on Yahoo Auctions.
For the initial setup, you either need to connect to the router with a serial RS232 cable and use something like minicom, or use RARP and then telnet to the router. RARP is an obsolete protocol. I had a lot of trouble getting it to work on Linux and actually succeeded much better with Lew Perin's RARP server for Windows (scroll down to the bottom of the page for a download link). You only need to do this once (hopefully).
Get help / completion
The RTX1000 console has built-in history and completions. Press the up/down arrows to scroll through the history. Press the tab key to get completions. Press ? to get help/a list of possible completions.
Set output language to English
To set the output language to English,
console character ascii
Show current configuration
Set up system logging to another computer
The following sets up
syslog host 192.168.2.2 syslog facility user syslog notice on
Set up tftp
As administrator, do
tftp host 192.168.2.2 savewhere
192.168.2.2is the host you want to tftp from.
Download configuration file
Use tftp (trivial file transfer protocol) to the router's IP address,
tftp 192.168.2.1 > get config/admin-password local-file-nameto get the configuration file.
Send a wake-on-lan packet
wol send lan1 mac-addressHere
lan1is the local area network, number can go from 1 to 3 on the RTX 1000.
To show the arp (address resolution protocol) table,
show arpand to clear the entries,
Set up PPPoE
This is an example of setting up PPPoE on lan2: Tell the router to send traffic through PP1:
ip route default gateway pp 1Set up PP1:
pp select 1 pp name "Network Provider Name" pp always-on on pppoe use lan2 pppoe auto connect on pppoe auto disconnect on pp auth accept pap pp auth myname your-name your-password ppp lcp mru on 1454 ppp ipcp ipaddress on ppp ipcp msext on ppp ccp type none ip pp mtu 1454 ip pp nat descriptor 1 pp enable 1This is mostly just monkey-see, monkey-do based on the manuals, so you might need to adjust it for your circumstances.
Set up a LAN
This sets up a local area network on lan1 with addresses from 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.2.254:
ip lan1 address 192.168.2.1/24
Set up DHCP
dhcp service server dhcp duplicate check 100 500 dhcp server rfc2131 compliant except use-clientid dhcp scope 1 192.168.2.2-192.168.2.254/24You can set up fixed IP addresses for each computer like this:
dhcp scope bind 1 192.168.2.2 mac-address dhcp scope bind 1 192.168.2.3 mac-address etc. for each computer.
This is handy if you want to use
resolution for your local computers, and you want to make sure that
each MAC address is always mapped to the same computer.
The reason for the
dhcp server rfc2131 compliant except
use-clientid is some obscure problem I had with a dual-boot
Set up DNS spoofing
The following will set up external packets on port 80 to route to 192.168.2.2 on your LAN, in other words if you want external computers to see 192.168.2.2 as if it was a web server on the external network:
nat descriptor type 1 masquerade nat descriptor masquerade static 1 1 192.168.2.2 tcp www
