Replace boa as web server?

By mikeh ·
I am using a small router at home as a gateway which has Linux running on a Coldfire
processor, and no MMU. It has a "boa" web
server. I closed the web and telnet ports to
avoid being hacked by someone finding the open port. Does anyone have a "boa" hack that
presents a less "friendly" face or another
small Linux web server providing a hardened target?

Replace boa as web server?

You might want to check out thttpd, a small Web server that runs on Linux. I've had good experience with it in an LRP (Linux Router Project) environment and it seems fairly secure.

You can find more information on it at http://lrp.steinkuehler.net (click on the packages link).

Great lead, thanks. Haven't had a chance to try it, but the router mfg suggested that thttpd might be in one of the Linux directories already on the unit. I just need to take the time (and I'm concerned that I might "break" something currently working) so I want to go slow.
