RE: Hi, and embedded routers
Is normal busybox not enough ? I have used
the busybox and it is already well equipped and well
termed as the 'Embedded Swiss Army Knife'.
But,what is unique in sarge busybox-static ?
and Why should you go in for it ?
kindly let me know the difference.
Thanks & Regards,
