Hi All,

In a similar vein to the Linksys router. I have a Buffalo (Melco) WBR-G54.

Looking through the latest firmware update available :

It does appear to be similar to the Linksys firmware and contain linux and
possibly busybox

No mention here or anywhere on there site of the GPL or the source code to
what they are distributing!

Unfortunately an nmap scan only shows the following ports open:

Starting nmap V. 3.00 ( )
Interesting ports on (
(The 1597 ports scanned but not shown below are in state: closed)
Port State Service
53/tcp open domain
80/tcp open http
2601/tcp open zebra
2602/tcp open ripd
Remote operating system guess: Linux Kernel 2.4.0 - 2.5.20
Uptime 1.252 days (since Sat Jun 07 15:51:52 2003)
Nmap run completed -- 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 13 seconds

No telnet or ssh for me to try to discover more.
