Again, we wait for the router to process our request and set the “Clean JFFS2” switch to the “Enable” position. Don’t click the “Save” button under any circumstances! Click the “Apply” button right away. The router will format the available space on its flash drive. Wait for the router to finish processing and set the “Clean JFFS” switch to “Disable”. Now click “Save”. The router may need a reboot.

4) Script to start the print server

Change the current directory to jffs by typing cd / jffs Then enter wget Now you need to give the downloaded script the necessary rights. This is done with the command chmod x / jffs / watchprinter If you now type ls, you will see that the file name turns green, which means that this file is executable.
