Boot Process

The RouterStation uses RedBoot as its boot loader. In the default configuration (shipping as of December 2008), a basic Linux kernel and BusyBox userspace is loaded from flash. The RedBoot boot sequence can be interrupted and a kernel loaded via TFTP instead.

RedBoot uses the WAN port for its network interface.

Once the system is booted, login with username/password ubnt to access the shell.
