Creating a "report"?

FREESCO has a script that collates all the information that is needed to make a diagnosis of a problem with your setup. This information is refered to as a report or report.txt.

There are 3 ways to provide us (at the forum) with this information.

  1. from the console (if booted from floppy).
login as root and type 2 commands.  

Once the system is halted you may take the floppy and copy A:\\ROUTER\\REPORT.TXT to your other PC. Put the floppy back in the freesco machine and boot it back up.

  1. from the console (if booted from harddrive).
login as root and type these commands.

mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /fd
cp /mnt/router/report.txt /fd
umount /fd

Now you may take the floppy and copy A:\\REPORT.TXT to another PC with working internet and post it on the forum.

  1. Via the web admin page (if you enabled it).
Login as admin via http://your.freesco.ip:82 (port 82 is default for web control panel, this port is configurable in [b]setup[/b], so use that port if you've used something else than the default).

Use the "Info/System" link, and copy all text from the main frame.

If your FREESCO 0.2.7 box is hanging at the "waiting for DHCP offer..." message, you can get in by typing ALT+F2 on the console and login as root at the new login prompt. Then proceed with method 1 or 2 (method 3 won't work because the web panel hasn't started yet).
