amtm can be launched over SSH, as there is no web interface for it. In addition to enabling SSH support on your router, some of its scripts will have additional requirements, most commonly you will need to set Enable JFFS custom scripts and configs on the web interface to Yes, under Administration -> System. A USB disk is also required by many of its scripts.

Connect to your router using an SSH client (Xshell, putty, etc...), then launch amtm by simply typing


in the console. A menu will appear, guiding you through the various options available. Installing Entware is usually the first step you should do, since many scripts will require it.

Before installing any of the scripts it is strongly recommended that you read the documentation for these scripts.
