Jul 31, 2005 · Defcon Day 3 – Soekris 4501. 6 Comments . by: Eliot. July 31, 2005. There are a lot things to get annoyed about at Defcon: the lines, the heat, slow network. Posted in Uncategorized.
Jul 11, 2007 · So I’m valiantly trying to brick a soekris in an effort to maintain my laziness. Start by making sure you have the /dev/nvram interface. In Pyramid you need to make it: cd /dev ; ./MAKEDEV nvram. The nvram module will load when you access the device, provided modules.conf contains: alias char-major-10-144 nvram. Grab a copy of the nvram: If it were me, I'd repurpose an old PC, or a dedicated board such as a Soekris 4501 Before you repurpose a PC for something that can be done by a lightweight appliance, keep in mind the power costs. A PC that uses 100 watts will cost around $130/year in power (in California @ $.15/KWh). Rudi van Drunen, CTO and Chief Engineer of Xlexit Technology B.V., located in The Netherlands says, "I've been using Soekris boards for different embedded applications ever since the 4501 came out My firewall at home transitioned from a linux box with a set of custom ipchains rules to a dell running m0n0 to a soekris. The soekris 4501 is good up to about a 17 mbps without vpn, the soekris Soekris Engineering, Inc, products net5501 Soekris 5501 manual arts. This compact, low-power, low-cost, advanced communication computer is based on an up to 500 Mhz 586 class processor. It has four 10/100 Mbit ethernet ports, up to 512 Mbyte DDR-SDRAM main memory and uses a CompactFlash module for program and data storage.
Boards from Soekris Engineering (4501 and 4801) are used for routers up to 30Mb/s, while Nexcom P4 GigE and VIA 100Mb boards are used for 100Mb/s connections and upwards to 300–500Mb/s on a good day. The Linux Embedded Appliance Firewall (LEAF) forms the basis of all software used on Citylink routing hardware.
linux4501 is a linux software distribution for the soekris net4501 single board PC (see www.soekris.com). It fits on a 16 or 32 MB Compactflash card and turns the 4501 into a firewall and (dsl) router.

Soekris Engineering 6501 net6501 - finally available now! This compact, low-power, low-cost, advanced communication computer is based on an up to 1.6 Ghz Intel Atom E6xx series processor. had hoped they might be better than the RPi but the Soekris were rather worse. - 4501, RPi hardware 1 to 3 - how long is a piece of string? Claimed offsets are within +/- 5 microseconds on RP2, but perhaps as much as +/- 20 microseconds with different hardware and OS version (all are Raspbian). - Yes. linux4501 is a linux software distribution for the soekris net4501 single board PC (see www.soekris.com). It fits on a 16 or 32 MB Compactflash card and turns the 4501 into a firewall and (dsl) router. m0n0wall is a project aimed at creating a complete, embedded firewall software package that, when used together with an embedded computer platform like a Soekris device, provides all the important features of commercial firewall boxes (including ease of use) at a fraction of the price (free software). m0n0wall is based on a bare-bones version of FreeBSD, along with a web server, PHP and a few Introduction Søren Kristensen from Soekris has produced an excellent series of small singleboard computers. These computers are primarily designed for use in embedded networking applications, but due to the general purpose nature of the design and the components chosen, they also make excellent NTP servers, if you feed them right. P-Box Model III: based on a Soekris 4801, it includes the same applications as model II. It can also be used as access point and includes the e-mail server protocols IMAP and POP3 . Big Brother Awards (Italian section) [ edit ] The embedded board I used is a Soekris 4501 system. This embedded board contains a 133 MHz AMD Elan SC 520, 64MB SDRAM, three Ether- net interfaces, a CF card slot, and two serial ports. The device runs FreeBSD without problems and fits in a small metal enclosure. The board is shown in Figure 2.
