I’ve been using opensource firmware on my routers for a very long time including monowall, pfsense, dd-wrt and currently OpenWRT. I’ve done this to offload all the services that I want to be uninterrupted on to my router. I don’t need a dedicated server or to run stuff on my desktop so I can shut it off and save power. Currently under OpenWrt on a dual core arm Linksys wrt1900ac, I’m running www on 3 ports (admin, sister’s website and PiAware), file and print server, and rtl_tcp. What I want to do is run Soapy-remote and plug my Lime in to the USB 3 hub I’m using with it.
The rtl software on my router was ported over from the Pi. My thought is why not try to get Soapy remote working for the Lime? I looked on google and it seems no one has shared on the subject. I will be working on it in the next few weeks and hopefully be able to provide instructions. I’m thinking that some routers should be capable of more throughput than even a Pi4.
( I ran out of /overlay space in jfs partition and need to move it out to the SD card first. I’m the type with 10 unfinished (in progress) projects. )
