1) decompress it to get the real binary
+
unzip kaid-*
+
2) Move it to /usr/local/sbin
+
mv kaid-static* kaid

mv kaid /usr/local/sbin

There is a link for the kaid sources in there. Or you can find it here :

Create a symbolic link to start kaid at every reboot and kill it at every shutdown automaticly:

chmod 755 /etc/init.d/kaid

ln -s /etc/init.d/kaid /etc/rc.d/rc0.d/K99kaid

# Kai Engine Configuration File (7.0.0.6-a)
+
#
+
# This file contains the configuration options for Kai Engine.
+
# There are some fields which can be modified, the descriptions of these fields
+
# and their default values are listed below
+
#
+
#
+
# Verbosity : Debug output verbosity. Options are as follows:
+
# 0 - Silent apart from starting / stopping messages, and init failures.
+
# 1 - As 1, but shows import events such as UI attach/detach, console detection,
+
# orb connection / loss.
+
# 2 - As 2, but more detailed, showing thread start/stop events, DHCP
+
# events, and other important information.
+
# 3 - Debug - same as 2, but with lots of extra information - useful
+
# for diagnosing segfaults etc.
+
Verbosity = 1
+
#
+
# User : Specifies which system user to switch to after having
+
# allocated necessary privileged resources. (FreeBSD Only!)
+
User = daemon
+
#
+
# UIBind : Specifies which ip/port kaid will use to listen for controller
+
# UIs. You don't want to change this.
+
UIBind = :34522
+
#
+
# OrbPort : Specifies which port kaid will use to probe(UDP) and talk to
+
# Orbitals (TCP) . You don't want to change this.
+
OrbPort = 34525
+
#
+
# OrbDeepPort : Specified which port kaid will use to probe and talk to
+
# deep resolution servers. You don't want to change this.
+
OrbDeepPort = 34523
+
#
+
# EngineBind : Specifies the IP:port to listen for the engine (UDP socket);
+
# (port should be forwarded in your router if using NAT)
+
# Ex.: 69.69.69.69, 69.69.69.69:37500, :37500
+
EngineBind = :0
+
#
+
# EngineDeepBind : Specifies the IP:port to listen for the engine (deep resolution)
+
# Do not enable this unless directed to.
+
# EngineDeepBind must be a different port than EngineBind if
+
# they use the same IP address
+
# Ex.: 69.69.69.69, 69.69.69.69:37501, :37501
+
EngineDeepBind = :0
+
#
+
# Engine PAT : Tells the orbital server to use your perceived UDP port, as opposed to the
+
# one specified in EngineBind. Ignored if EngineBind is 0. Please don't turn this
+
# setting to 1, unless directed to do so in a troubleshooting session.
+
EnginePAT = 0
+
#
+
# SniffDevice : NIC to sniff for console traffic (eth0, ethX, ...). Will be used
+
# for packet injection too.
+
# Ex.: eth0 (default), en0 (Mac OSX), br0 (WRT54G)
+
SniffDevice = eth0
+
#
+
# LocalDevices : How many consoles to detect before the engine locks the pcap filter. Setting this to 0,
+
# means the engine will never lock - which means you can use any number of consoles, but
+
# you will notice a performance hit, if your network is busy with other traffic. The best
+
# thing to do here is to set the number to the number of consoles you own - that's why it
+
# defaults to 1 - because most people have just 1 console.
+
LocalDevices = 1
+
#
+
# ConfigURL : URL where orb list is published (and extra stuff) - best not to mess with this.
+
ConfigURL = www.teamxlink.co.uk/connector/clientgetconfig.php
+
#
+
# ConfigCache : Location of cached orb list - this file is used if the ConfigURL is inaccessible
+
# Make sure this file is writable. WRT54G users might want to change it to a non-volatile
+
# location if that feature is available in their firmware
+
# (i.e. /jffs/tmp/ for DD-WRT, /usr/local/ for Sveasoft)
+
ConfigCache = /var/misc/kaiSystemConfig.txt
+
#
+
# CacheFile : Location of Kai engine cache information
+
# Make sure this file is writable. WRT54G users might want to change it to a non-volatile

#Authentication : Set username and password and AutoLogin=1 for an easy life...
+
Username =<font color = red>XXXXXXXXX</font>
+
Password =<font color = red>XXXXXXXXX</font>
+
AutoLogin = 1
+
#
+
# Xbox DHCP setting : Please leave alone, unless playing with emulators or DoomX etc. You DO NOT need this set to 1
+
# to use XBMC as a dashboard - setting it to 1 will *break* your dashboards internet connectivity.
+
XBoxHomebrew = 0

+
==== Linksys WRT54G router script ====
+
''Note: I have tested the script with the DD-WRT SP2 VPN firmware; please add any additional routers to the list below''
+
 
+
Works on:
+
- Linksys WRT54G
+
+- DD-WRT V2.3 SP2
+
 
+
Add below script to the "Startup script" in your router:
+
cd /tmp
+
wget http://genotix.nl/kai/runme.script
+
chmod +x ./runme.script
+
./runme.script
+
 
+
This command downloads and runs the above script.
+
 
+
I've made it resonnably generic so it should work on most MIPS CPU based routers with linux
+
and with the following tools installed:
+
* sh (default shell)
+
* wget
+
* awk
+
* sed
+
* tar
+
 
+
Feel free to alter the base script and please let me know of the changes if you do.

Overview

Xlink Kai: Evolution VII lets you connect with other console users around the world, and play online games for free. XLink Kai: Evo VII tricks your console into thinking that the other users it is connecting to over the Internet, are actually part of a Local Area Network. This is the basis of system-link gaming, where friends would gather around in the same house and play over 2 or more consoles. With XLink Kai: Evo VII, you now have the option to test your skills out with anybody in the world.[1]

Features

  • Supports Xbox, Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, Gamecube, and PSP system-link / LAN enabled games.
  • 2 gaming modes (Messenger and Arena).
  • WinPCap-less.
  • Integrated chat in all areas.
  • No port-forwarding required on almost all network setups.
  • PC to PC and PC to XBox Dashboard voicechat using the SPEEX codec.
  • Extremely simple and global user-interface.
  • Auto-update on startup.
  • Multi-console compatible.
  • Compatible with wireless networks (not all wireless network setups).
  • Superior compression algorithms for less lag.
  • Support for university dorms and proxies such as Italian FastWeb ISP.
  • Trusted clan and tournament / ladder arenas.
  • Remote functionality through homebrew dashboards (XBMC - Using Xbox Media Center with the LinkStation)

It even may work on a LS2 (MIPSel) because binaries exist for both architectures. The only problem is that there is no static binary for the MIPSel.[2]
