Migrate settings from CCGX to Cerbo GX


I have to replace a Color Control GX due to it being overloaded (slow, rebooting, high load averages) after expanding my system. Have already purchased a Cerbo GX.

Is there a reasonably easy way to transfer settings from the old device to a new one, or will I have to do this screen by screen? I am hoping that it may be as easy as SSH in / copy a few config files and directories to and from SD card / reboot?

Internet connection via wireless Access Point

Hi all,

I'm looking to connect a wireless device (esp32) to the Venus GX via the wireless Access Point. I can connect the device to the AP, but then the AP itself doesn't have an internet connection. The GX does have an internet connection to a router via ethernet.

I've setup SSH and am comfortable with the command line, but it seems the distro on the GX is restricted compared to something like a Raspberry Pi. I tried bridging ap0 with eth0, but it seems most of the ways suggested online for doing this are restricted on the GX.

Has anyone had success doing this?

I'm also curious what base distro the GX uses (Debian/Ubuntu/etc)? Is there a list of restricted commands (like apt-get,etc)?
