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…
(Ssh not “ash”)
I just tried it on my Airport Express, it worked too - https://jcs.org/2018/06/12/airport_ssh
I thought this was pretty common knowledge, but the ability to enable ssh is news to me.
What generation of AirPort Extreme is this? I had previous heard some ran VxWorks?
6th gen for me, there are more hardware details on the various generations at http://www.theairportwiki.com/index.php?title=Main_Page
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.
