OpenWRT and INDI #39798
Would it be possible to use a router equipped with a USB port running on OpenWRT to run an instance of INDI server from which the mount can be controlled remotely over either ethernet or wifi?

I happen to have bought such a router (still on its way) for another purpose but won't be needing it for that anymore, so it occurred to me I might be able to take advantage of it to reduce cable clutter a bit and control my mount from a bit further away.

Someone has definitely tried this in the past as they posted a page on their website about it, but the link has gone dead:
sites.google.com/site/picgoto/indi-openwrt
The archived version - from 2010 - suggests they had packaged indi-server 0.5 as an .ipk
web.archive.org/web/20101030080708/https...picgoto/indi-openwrt

Has anyone else tried this? I imagine an OpenWRT build environment would be needed to compile the INDI packages for installation, which is what I'm going to be looking into next.

I'm not very familiar with OpenWRT environment.. is is regular Linux environment? can you build C++ from source? Does it support C++11?
