#411 PockePc as RED, need ipaq kernel module

I am trying to get my UTStarcom 6700 to work with IP Cop. It works with Fedora Core 7 using the ipaq.o module. I have tried to copy this file to my IP Cop, but am unable to get it to load. If you could include the ipaq module in the next release, I would be very happy. This driver also allows other PPC devices to connect, so I believe others would like this feature as well.
Thank you very much for your time.

    To my understanding, what you want to do is to connect one pocket pc with an usb connection to internet.

    More like use the Pocket PC as the internet connection. I fix computers for a living and alot of my clients are still on dial-up. For the lucky ones with high-speed, I configure my firewall with 2 nics. For the dial-up users, I re-configure it for modem/dial-up access (it still has 2 nics though). This works great, but I have a PPC that can provide EV-Do access that would be faster than dial-up, although 1x is still a tad faster than dial-up as well.
    I can use the PPC as a wireless modem for my laptop, and have got it to work with the Fedora Core 7 live cd. I have also noticed that Slax and other linux distros have the ipaq.o (sometimes ipaq.ko) module. When I connect the PPC, it tells me on the Alt-F12 screen that the USB device is detected, and the vendor and product ID's (these are the correct ones) but no active driver claims the device.
    If you have a work around, that would be great :D

    I have been doing a lot of research on this issue, and in the http://www.ipcops.com forums, have found some others that are looking for the same things.

    http://www.ipcops.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&t=8590
    [AK65] "I wish more firewall/router developers would recognize the reality that more and more people will use cellular data as a backhaul or a mobile presence as the speed is getting to be quite high. We'll see 7.2mbs in a few years. My perception is that they arrogantly dismiss it as something a few fringe experimenters would use and won't even consider making their distros more friendly to this option. It's here, it's becoming more popular by the hour as a viable alternative to wired and it isn't going away!"

    I am still going to try to get my firewall to work with my PPC as the Red interface, and hope that the future IP Cop releases will start to support this action natively.

    Here is the link that I followed to get Fedora Core to work with my PPC device.

    Hope this helps.
    I have tried to compile the nessary modules from the 2.4.34 kernel (from http://www.linuxhq.com/\) and I no longer get the "couldn't determine the kernel version module was compiled for" error. I now get alot of unresolved symbols. I don't think I am going to have much luck. I will keep trying though.

    Hi,
    Start compiling from the correct source, IPCop itself.
    Install from cvs, build your iso to confirm you are ok.
    Then edit ".config" sitted here:
    youripcop-cvs/src/config/kernel.config.i386

    Then find in build/lib/module....your ipaq.o.gz
    Depending on its locaton, check that it is included
    in final ISO: see in src/ROOTFILES.i386.

    Franck
