Of course it runs NetBSD! :)

Yeah kinda cool. AFAIK they have been doing so since the first gen.

Meraki originally ran NetBSD (some of the code when it was still a research project is still in the tree)

Hm I’m curious how much of this is common to the airport express (i.e can I enable ash). The express still has SNMP enabled but there’s not a published MIB to be found. I was able to extract DHCP lease info from snmp…

I thought this was pretty common knowledge, but the ability to enable ssh is news to me.

It seems to me that @Apple, said a long, long time ago.

Mainly freebsd and a proprietary apple layer.

objects connected with @netbsd code. At the network level.

So, nothing unusual.
