I’m incapable of understanding what was written and unwilling to engage with someone (not yourself) whose communication seems disrespectful to the person they’re supposedly “helping”.
What I’m hoping to get is a few steps of instructions as to where in the GUI I can enter a few lines of course to restore the functionality I had in the past. That GUI changed significantly in the new firmware.
I highly doubt you’ll be able to do this via the GL GUI. You’ll need LuCI & be able to ssh into the Slate. The aforementioned HOW-TO has that all covered.
I’ve never had the need to set TTL so I guess I should be asking if you want this to apply to all network interfaces (easiest) or just the a specific one? I’m not terribly proficient in firewalling but I think between the two of us we can get’er done.
(Either way, I’ve been ‘burnt’ by auto-updates destroying my equipment setups in the past too; be sure to disable it!)
