40+ Most Popular Enigma2 Box Telnet Commands

To get the full potential out of your Enigma2 satellite box you need to learn how to access it remotely through telnet. I am going to share with you 50 most popular Enigma2 box telnet commands you can use when playing with your satellite box. Regardless of your box model or the image you use and as long as your satellite receiver is Enigma2 based you can use them to get more control. They can be very handy when things gone wrong or if you’re away and want to make some changes in your box.

How to connect to your box?

I am going to explain how to use PuTTy for anyone who has never done that before. Any PRO reader, please jump to the next section. Newbies stay with me. Let’s begin! The easiest way to connect to your box is to download telnet client, I am using PuTTy. This is very simple and easy to use telnet client and you can download it from here, Once you downloaded and installed PuTTy on your pc or laptop open it up and you should see window(you might be asked to run it as admin first on some machines) like the one below.

Just put your box IP on the Host Name field and set Connection Type to Telnet and you’re done. Click Open and you should see PuTTy telnet window like the one below.

To connect to your box you just need to enter your login which in most cases is root and by default there is no password. If you want to setup one you can do that, just scroll down the page and use one of the commands below. This is how your telnet window should look after you’ve logged in.

Telnet Commands for Your Enigma2 Box

Update/Upgrade/Download/Install Commands

  • opkg update (short for Open PacKaGe Management) – this command will update the image feeds located in /etc/opkg/ (to make sure just check the path to your opkg folder) Basically, what the command does is to check and let your image know that the updates are there ready to be installed.
  • opkg upgrade – this command updates the image and/or plugins that were identified by the above opkg update command. When using these commands it is recommended to first put the enigma2 into a sleeping mode so that any changes that are made have less risk of becoming corrupted as this may happen when being updated in a running state.
  • opkg list-upgradable – allows you to check what is available to update on the image (same as opkg update)
  • opkg download – allows you to download plugins directly from the images own feeds in a installable .ipk format to the /home/root/ directory of your receiver.

Example usage:

  • opkg download enigma2-plugin-extensions-backupsuite
  • opkg download enigma2-plugin-systemplugins-autobouquetsmaker

 

  • opkg install – allows you to install plugins directly from the image feeds.

Example usage:

  • opkg install enigma2-plugin-systemplugins-autobouquetsmaker
  • opkg install enigma2-plugin-extensions-backupsuite
  • opkg remove package – this command removes packages (replace “package” with package name).

Now I will share some other commands that I use very often along with a brief description of what the commands do. Most if not all commands work the same across all images:

Init codes

  • init 1 –  stops Enigma2 and network.
  • init 3 – wakes Enigma2 from a sleeping state / GUI restart.
  • init 4 – kill enigma / puts enigma into sleep mode allowing you to edit or modify files that otherwise would corrupt or become damages if edited while live.
  • init 6 – full reboot.

Other Enigma2 Commands

  • grab -o -p /tmp/filename.png – very useful command, grabs the osd screenshot of your box and saves it in /temp/. Replace “filename.png” with the name you want to use for the screenshot.
  • grab -d -p /tmp/filename.png – the same except it grabs the channel too.
  • shutdown -r now – the same as the above init 6 command.
  • shutdown -h now – full shutdown.
  • lsusb – lists all attached USB devices.
  • df -h – checks memory and storage stats.
  • nmap -sp 192.168.1.0/24 – allows you to map your local network (change the IP address for mapping your own network).
  • cat /proc/meminfo – memory info.
  • killall -9 enigma2 – If your box freezes for some reasons, this will restart Enigma2 for you.

Standard Linux Telnet Commands list

  • top – this commands will give you current stats of your memory, cpu, program usage.
  • find – this command will find a file or folder within your dreambox directory structure.
  • rm – remove command will remove files normally followed by -rf for a complete removal from the system.
  • df – will show you the file system and the file system setup.
  • free – this command shows you the memory usage on your dreambox.
  • date – shows you the time and date on your dreambox.
  • unzip – this command will unzip files to a location of your choice. IE (unzip -o /tmp/Latest.zip /media/hdd/latest) that would take a file in the tmp folder and unzip it into /media/hdd/latest.
  • tar – roughly is the same as unzip and zip but for tarball files.
  • gzip – for zipping and unzipping gz files.
  • cp – the copy command, this will copy a file from one location to another.
  • mkdir – this command will make a directory of your choice.
  • uname – usually followed by -a will tell you what operating system you are using, very useful command for checking what box you are using and build times etc!
  • ls – this is the list command will list the contents of a directory.
  • which – nice command to find the location of a program.
  • chmod/chown/adduser/deluser/ – these are all user and group management commands… there are a few more but these are the obvious ones.

Advanced Commands

  • ipkg-build – this command will build you a plugin once you have wrote the plugin in correctly written bash.
  • ipkg-unbuild -this command will unbuild a plugin see above (these two commands may not work on all boxes – I am going to make separate post about plugin building, so stay in touch).
  • dmesg – used with (dmesg | more) is a very powerful and first call diagnostic tool in linux.
  • grep – put this in here as its probably the most used command in linux and very powerful for searching files and listing information in order.
  • wget – by far my favorite command on linux platforms and so underrated, I can do with this command things that people would not believe, however its main use is for getting information/files/ from another location on the internet or lan.
  • enigma2 – this is the base command for enigma2 boxes, only use this command if you know what you are doing… a useful command for use is (enigma –help-all)

Obviously this list is not exhaustive and there are many more commands available for use with your enigma2 box. I’ll keep updating this post with new commands and if you want to update this list as well or have something to say just use comments section below. Thanks for reading and until next time!

How to setup CCcam cline on your Enigma2 box in 3 steps

How to setup CCcam cline on your receiver in 3 easy steps.

Setup CCcam cline is very easy. Let’s assume you got working cline and have no clue as to where it should go. This tutorial will guide you through with a simple step by step. Ok, let’s begin.

1. Download and Install FTP client

First thing you should do is to install FTP client on your hardrive (provided you haven’t done that yet). I recommend Filezilla FTP client, it’s free, easy to use and you can download it from here.

2. Connect to your receiver

Now note your receiver’s IP address. It usually starts with 192.168.x.x. Once you downloaded and installed the FTP client, open it and connect to your box. In the Host field enter the IP of your box and in the Username put root now click connect or hit Enter on your keyboard. When you’ve done everything correct you should see on the right hand side of the Filezilla FTP client a window with your box’s folder structure. Like below…

3. Enter your cline into CCcam.cfg file

Now go to etc folder, you should find it in the root folder of your box. In that folder look for CCcam.cfg file, right click on it and choose View/Edit from the dropdown menu. Standard notepad window should popup and this is where your cline goes. Sometimes when you enter it for the very first time there might be some other content in there. You can easily delete it and leave only your cline. When done, click Save, then Exit and when Filezilla ask you to confirm changes, click Yes. That’s it. you’ve done it! Now go check your box, tune in your favourite channel and enjoy.

Just remember that it is only for your own educational use. If you have any questions, just let me know in the comment section below. Thanks for reading and happy watching! 😉
