Why Ips-Qos Live ?

  • it is probably the shortest way to get to know the advantages of Ips-Qos,
  • at the same time allows very quick creation of the complete PC ready router,
  • this type of router does not need a hard drive, can run only in memory,
  • may use a small amount of memory or CF or USB hard drive to save the configuration,
  • can also use hard drives to collect a large amount of information for advanced configurations,
  • running in graphics mode is a complete “pocket” operating system for use the Internet, multimedia or office work,
  • may be an alternative way to install on your computer, read more below.

How to use the router’s hard drive? At startup Ips-Qos Live searches directories with special names in the root directories of hard disk partitions (installed automatically) for the following purposes:
ROOT – directory where you can put any folders and files that are copied at boot to root system,
IPS – packets log directory,
RRD – loads log directory,
STA – statistics directory.
Directories with the specified names are to be created manually in a root directory of any (USB, CF, SSD etc.) disk partition(s). Ips-Qos Live takes care of the rest, using them at next boot.
Storing configuration profile called “all” is essential to store the whole configuration on hard disk.
Special operation in the “Save current configuration as a profile” dialog tries to find/create ROOT directory and save there: profile named “all”, router network settings, network services settings, passwords and of course all the Ips-Qos settings. This allows to restore the state of the router at the next boot.

How to use USB, CF, SSD, etc. to install the Ips-Qos Live in advanced mode? Record unzipped content of the zip packge on the first FAT partition of size about 700MB. Do not forget to make it bootable. The remaining space allocate for the large type ext3 Linux partition. Optionally add a little swap partition. Format the ext3 partition and create directories ROOT, IPS, RRD etc. You’ve got a “hard drive” for Ips-Qos Live, have fun.
