PostPosted: Thu 10 Sep 2015, 09:04    Post subject:  Frubee: program for Internet connection
Subject description: Via router: without the use of DHCP server, DHCP client. Via USB modem sticks: with pppd.
 

I designed and developed a program that connects the client to the router and assign IP address dynamically (to the client on which it's executed), without the use of the DHCP (no DHCP client, no DHCP server).
The program (via pppd) also allows connection to the Internet with USB modem sticks or mobile phone plug to the PC with USB (not tested with smartphones).
This is the URL:
https://github.com/tone77/frubee

Directions to install and try Frubee on Puppy Linux distros
A) if you don't want build it
Code:

on Precise Puppy 5.7.1 (kernel 3.9.11) run frubee-x.x.x-precise571.pet
on Slacko 5.7.0 (kernel 3.10.32) run frubee-x.x.x-slacko570.pet
on Tahrpup 6.0.2 (kernel 3.14.20) run frubee-x.x.x-tahr602.pet

B) if you want build it
Code:

on Precise Puppy 5.7.1 install "devx_precise_5.7.1.sfs" ([url]http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/precise-5.7.1/devx_precise_5.7.1.sfs[/url])
on Slacko 5.7.0 install "devx_slacko_5.7.0.sfs" ([url]http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/puppy-slacko-5.7/devx_slacko_5.7.0.sfs[/url])
on Tahrpup 6.0.2 install "devx_tahr_6.0.2.sfs" ([url]http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/puppy-tahr/iso/tahrpup%20-6.0-CE/devx_tahr_6.0.2.sfs[/url])

and run from shell the script "install.sh".

Once installed, run from shell:
Code:

frubee

and follow the onscreen instructions.

Light test
You can try Frubee even if the PC has already an IP address and it's connected to the router via DHCP.
Run Frubee.
To restore the original configuration restart PC (PC could have another IP address).

Full test
To avoid the risk of no longer be able to connect, before running the full test, it's advisable to check if Frubee connects to Internet with the mode aforementioned, that is not by manually editing the original configuration.
For details read below.
1. Disable DHCP server in the router
2. Disable DHCP client in Puppy Linux distro: run "mv /usr/sbin/dhcpcd /usr/sbin/dhcpcd_"
3. Restart PC
4. Run Frubee
5. Re-enable DHCP server in the router
6. Re-enable DHCP client in Puppy Linux distro: run "mv /usr/sbin/dhcpcd_ /usr/sbin/dhcpcd"
7. Restart PC


Frubee also can be used if the DHCP doesn't work or is not present.

If you want to connect automatically (don't shows dialog boxes), use "--name-nation" and "--name-operator":
Code:

   frubee --name-nation NameNation --name-operator NameOperator

To assign a correct value to "--name-nation" and "--name-operator" (or see all arguments), run from shell:
Code:

frubee --help

and read the content.

If you want to add a nation, a mobile phone operator, a router or custom router of an ISP you can read

Directions for use Frubee during the operating system boot.
1. Disable DHCP server in the router
2. Disable DHCP client in Puppy Linux distro: run "mv /usr/sbin/dhcpcd /usr/sbin/dhcpcd_"
3. In the file "/etc/rc.d/rc.local" insert:
Code:

   frubee --run-from-boot > /dev/console

4. Restart PC

If frubee doesn't connects to Internet, read the file "/tmp/NOCONNECT.err" to see the error.

Restore the original configuration
1. Comment in the file "/etc/rc.d/rc.local" the command for run frubee
2. Re-enable DHCP server in the router
3. Re-enable DHCP client in Puppy Linux distro: run "mv /usr/sbin/dhcpcd_ /usr/sbin/dhcpcd"

There's the possibility to set the range of the IP addresses to be assigned with Frubee.
You can reserve some IP addresses to be assigned exclusively to Frubee that in this way can coexist peacefully with DHCP on the same router.

Examples
Router 192.168.1.1
DHCP - Start IP address 192.168.1.2
DHCP - End IP address 192.168.1.199
Frubee - Start IP address 192.168.1.200
Frubee - End IP address 192.168.1.254
Code:
frubee --fourth-triplet-start 200 --fourth-triplet-end 254

or
Router 192.168.1.1
Frubee - Start IP address 192.168.1.2
Frubee - End IP address 192.168.1.49
DHCP - Start IP address 192.168.1.50
DHCP - End IP address 192.168.1.254
Code:
frubee --fourth-triplet-start 2 --fourth-triplet-end 49

Frubee allows to connect multiple 3G USB modem (multiple pppd).

To manage the multiple connection there are also the scripts:
frubee_dm (frubee detect modem). This script creates the list of device to pass to frubee for the connection of multiple 3G USB modem: detects only USB modem sticks, not detects mobile phone
frubee_tc (frubee test connection). This script shows connection status of ppp0, ppp1, ppp2, ppp3, ppp4

To explain the operating directions, I write an example. I tried with two modems, but Frubee can connect more.

STEP 0
In order to have a correct detection of modems, restart your PC.

STEP 1
Run in the shell
Code:
 
frubee_tc [URL on which run the ping test] [Interval of seconds between a control and the other]

it appears:
Code:
 
Bytes received in connection ppp0: NOT CONNECTED
Bytes received in connection ppp1: NOT CONNECTED
Bytes received in connection ppp2: NOT CONNECTED
Bytes received in connection ppp3: NOT CONNECTED
Bytes received in connection ppp4: NOT CONNECTED
        TO STOP THE SCRIPT PRESS CTRL+C
------------------------------------------------

If unplug and plug the modem, "frubee_dm" doesn't work correctly: in this case you have to restart the PC.


STEP 2
Plug the first 3G USB modem (I have "Huawei E1820") and run frubee_dm in the shell
It appears:
Code:

-------------------------------------------------
Parameter to be passed to frubee for the modem 1:
ttyUSB0
if not working, try:
ttyUSB1
if not working, try:
ttyUSB2



STEP 3
Plug the second 3G USB modem (I have "Huawei E220") and run frubee_dm in the shell
It appears:
Code:

-------------------------------------------------
Parameter to be passed to frubee for the modem 1:
ttyUSB0
if not working, try:
ttyUSB1
if not working, try:
ttyUSB2
-------------------------------------------------
Parameter to be passed to frubee for the modem 2:
ttyUSB3
if not working, try:
ttyUSB4



STEP 4
To connect the modem 1, run
Code:

frubee --name-device-usb ttyUSB0


situation in frubee_tc once connected the modem 1
Code:

Bytes received in connection ppp0: 102
Bytes received in connection ppp1: NOT CONNECTED
Bytes received in connection ppp2: NOT CONNECTED
Bytes received in connection ppp3: NOT CONNECTED
Bytes received in connection ppp4: NOT CONNECTED
        TO STOP THE SCRIPT PRESS CTRL+C
------------------------------------------------
Bytes received in connection ppp0: 432
Bytes received in connection ppp1: NOT CONNECTED
Bytes received in connection ppp2: NOT CONNECTED
Bytes received in connection ppp3: NOT CONNECTED
Bytes received in connection ppp4: NOT CONNECTED
        TO STOP THE SCRIPT PRESS CTRL+C
------------------------------------------------



STEP 5
Once connected the modem 1, to connect the modem 2, run
Code:

frubee --name-device-usb ttyUSB3


situation in frubee_tc once connected the modem 1 and modem 2
Code:

Bytes received in connection ppp0: 4810
Bytes received in connection ppp1: 158
Bytes received in connection ppp2: NOT CONNECTED
Bytes received in connection ppp3: NOT CONNECTED
Bytes received in connection ppp4: NOT CONNECTED
        TO STOP THE SCRIPT PRESS CTRL+C
------------------------------------------------
Bytes received in connection ppp0: 4810
Bytes received in connection ppp1: 242
Bytes received in connection ppp2: NOT CONNECTED
Bytes received in connection ppp3: NOT CONNECTED
Bytes received in connection ppp4: NOT CONNECTED
        TO STOP THE SCRIPT PRESS CTRL+C
------------------------------------------------


If, however, there is something not clear, ask as well, I'm at your disposal.

I have not tried them as my environments all have a pre-existing DHCP server. I can't think of a situation where I could safely allow the client to decide on it's own IP address. Although I do like the idea of another method to allow 3G modems to connect. But don't they have to receive their IP from the ISP rather than allocating their own??

Hello Atle, I'm honoured of your appreciations on Frubee!!
Thanks (also Frubee thanks you)!
Everything worked properly?

Hello greengeek!
Frubee doesn't wants to replace DHCP, but it wants to be a lifeboat if DHCP doesn't work or is not present.

There are two types of IP addresses: private and public.

DHCP service assigns private IP address dynamically that can be used freely in a local network:
Code:

Private IP address (used only in local network)
from 10.0.0.0 to 10.255.255.255
from 172.16.0.0 to 172.31.255.255
from 192.168.0.0 to 192.168.255.255

Also Frubee assigns private IP address dynamically (I have only tried 192.168.xxx.xxx).

Public IP addresses are issued by ISP (Internet service providers): you see it in the configuration page of the router or in the websites that offer this service.

I released version 2.2.0 of Frubee

Has been added the possibility to use the desired DNS (only for the connection with the router).

To manage the DNS it was added the parameter "--user-dns".
Example
Code:

frubee --user-dns AddressOfDesiredDNS


If "--user-dns" is not used, in /etc/resolv.conf is inserted the address of the router (so, are used the DNS set on the router).

To avoid that /etc/resolv.conf generated by frubee is overwritten by dhcpcd (the DHCP client) you can:
1. run "mv /usr/sbin/dhcpcd /usr/sbin/dhcpcd_"
2. Restart PC
3. Run Frubee

To re-enable DHCP client
1. run "mv /usr/sbin/dhcpcd_ /usr/sbin/dhcpcd"
2. Restart PC

I released version 2.3.1 of Frubee

Has been added the possibility to specify the APN for the connection with the mobile.

To manage the APN it was added the parameter "--user-apn".
Example
Code:

frubee --user-apn ApnOfOperator


If you use the parameter "--user-apn" you can connect with the mobile regardless of the choices in the menu in dialog boxes.
