wpkg-tools is command line tool to interact with WPKG clients from debian, it is written in perl.
The project can be found on github, feel free to come contribute with issues or code https://github.com/Link2Twenty/wpkg-tools
In order to get this running, you will need to download wpkg-tools and wpkg-variables.pl and place them in /usr/local/sbin/ with the permissions 700.
You will need to edit wpkg-variables.pl to be correct for your own site.
wpkg-tools presumes several things:
- You are using a debian based operating system
- You have your WPKG reports stored somewhere accessible
- You have wpkgreports.awk added
- You have samba-common installed
- You have perl installed
There are also several perl components used:
It's best to run these commands with sudo or as root
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Link2Twenty/wpkg-tools/master/wpkg-tools -P /usr/local/sbin/ wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Link2Twenty/wpkg-tools/master/wpkg-variables.pl -P /usr/local/sbin/ chmod 700 /usr/local/sbin/wpkg-tools chmod 700 /usr/local/sbin/wpkg-variables.pl
You will have to edit the two variables in /usr/local/sbin/wpkg-variables.pl, using your prefered editor
our $user = "username%password"; our $wpkg_reports = "/location/of/wpkgreports";
apt install samba-common apt install perl perl-doc
apt install libterm-readkey-perl apt install libnet-ping-external-perl apt install libswitch-perl
