I'm trying to get the router firmware (binary) running on QEMU (if that is possible). All networking is set up fine because I've tested it using the debian_wheezy_mips_standard.qcow2
sudo qemu-system-mips -M malta -kernel vmlinux-3.2.0-4-4kc-malta -hda MYROUTERBINARY.bin -append "root=/dev/sda1 console=ttyS0"-nographic
when I run this QEMU goes into a blank screen. I thought that it might not have a user interface due to it being a router but I can't get any response when running a nmap against the IP address space it should be in.
Should I import the filesystem using:
sudo qemu-system-mips -M malta -kernel vmlinux-3.2.0-4-4kc-malta -hda debian_wheezy_mips_standard.qcow2 -append "root=/dev/sda1 console=ttyS0" -nographic
Let's say for instance I have netcat running on the router. I want to be able to access the port, so need the router firmware/filesystem needs to be running
Can anyone help please?
