Nokia IP330



  • Hello,
    New guy here!!

    I am trying to load pfsense on a Nokia IP330, it actually deals with the old interface problem, but it drops the serial connection after it finishes booting.

    Is there a way to keep the console connection active?  I can not do an install, and I do not want to run off the live CD version.  I can login to the web interface and check the "Activate Serial connection" stuff, but obviously have to reboot to get it connected up again, and loose my settings.  It is a vicious circle.

    Any help would be very appreciated.

    Okay…to quote myself... :o)

    Anyway...Here is what I ended up doing.  I used the CD version, pulled the hard drive from the IP330, stuck it in my pc, installed from the CD Version and stuck the hard drive back in the IP330.  I did not configure any IP Addresses, I just installed it.  Once I got it back in the IP330, I just let it boot up, and use the default LAN ip address.  I then connected via the LAN IP Address, and configured my system.  I am surfing on it right now.

    This is really a nice fork of monowall.  I had used m0n0 for a year or so, and quit using it due to a (percieved) lack of what I wanted.  You guys have fixed that, and I will be using pfsence for as long as you keep developing it.

    Thank you all.

    Thats good you got it working.  What CPU speed is your nokia?  I have a 166 MHz one (must have been the cheap model) and it won't accept a faster CPU.

    If you have any other CPU speed I'd really appreciate a nice high-res photo of the CPU area - specifically JP2 and surrounds.

    Also have a read of http://criggie.dyndns.org/tech/ip330/  and feel free to tell me stuff I don't know.



  • Mine is an AMD-K6-2 400 mhz chip.  It has 2 slots for memory, one which is filled with 256 meg of PC100 memory.

    Would you mind taking a good high-resolution photo of the CPU area, like this one?

    I'm specifically interested in JP2.
