Irssi has this nifty feature that allows you to proxy through the client. This isn’t installed by default, and is not configured in the Makefile.
This will be a sparse walkthrough, until I can flesh it out more later. I did modify the Makefile using –with-proxy, but this didn’t seem to work (the ipkg contained only the binary irssi and other sparse files).
In any case, requirements:
OpenWRT SDK, with Irssi package
Copy the following from the SDK directory:
scp * root@openwrt:/usr/lib/irssi/modules/
Starting irssi and performing /LOAD proxy showed the following:
Warning: Warning!! Password not specified, everyone can use this proxy! Use
/set irssiproxy_password to set it
Warning: No proxy ports specified. Use /SET irssiproxy_ports =
= … to set them.
