1  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: Bricked my Sheevaplug, Unbricked & upgraded at once -- HOWTO on: November 20, 2010, 01:04:43 AM
Gonna try this out too. But the main problem is that I can't even connect to it via serial. I mean Windows XP, Ubuntu or Windows Vista doesn't even detect that I connected a USB device

Will try this out when I get the chance. Thanks in advance and hope it works for me too

I've been using Squid daisy-chained to Privoxy on my NSLU2 for years and now it runs on my Sheevaplug, well at least it used to until my Sheevaplug died.

As for transparent proxying, if you have a DD-Wrt or OpenWrt capable router then you can easily do this via iptables. Redirect all outgoing request on port 80 to your Sheevaplug.

This is what I have on my router's iptables:
iptables -t nat -N Proxy
iptables -t nat -A Proxy -i br0 -s -j RETURN
iptables -t nat -A Proxy -i br0 -p tcp --dport 80 -j DNAT --to
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i br0 -s -d -p tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i br0 -s -d ! -p tcp --dport 80 -j Proxy
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o br0 -s -p tcp -d -j SNAT --to
iptables -t filter -I FORWARD -s -d -i br0 -o br0 -p tcp --dport -j ACCEPT

Outgoing requests to port 80 from all IP addresses (except requests coming from are redirected to which is where Squid+Privoxy runs. Then on my squid.conf:
http_port 3128 transparent
cache_peer localhost parent 8118 0 no-query no-digest
always_direct allow ftpproto
never_direct allow all
to chain with Privoxy

Why not use a Sipura3000 or SPA3102? I use SPA3102 myself connecting to asterisk running on the plug, it's got 1 FXS and 1 FXO.

I really can't tell if there's any damage on the PCB but there was definitely no burning smell from the time I first unplugged it to the time I gave up reviving it. It's in a fairly small, closed room I use as a home office together with my other devices (router, nslu2, readynas, xbox) with an AC to keep the temp in the room not too hot so if something burned I would've smelled it.

Very very tempted now to get a dockstar instead of another sheevaplug in case I won't be able to revive this.

Yes it was surprisingly hot when I unplugged it after it disappeared from the network. Whenever I needed to reboot it in the past for kernel updates I had to unplug it and plug it in again as I'm booting off a USB HDD and it was never that hot.
7  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Another SheevaPlug bites the dust on: November 06, 2010, 08:17:45 AM
Hello guys,

I have 2 SheevaPlugs. My 1st plug is here in Malaysia running SVN, Squid + Privoxy, OpenVPN, CUPS-PDF and also used for development. I've had it since April 2009 running Debian Lenny on a 320GB 2.5" USB HDD drawing power from the plug. It's been running almost 24/7 ever since, rebooting only to update the kernel. The 2nd plug, received Sep 2009, is in the Philippines as a file server and asterisk server.

Last Thursday noon the 1st plug disappeared from the network and upon checking the unit I found out that only the power LED is on (steady) the blue LED doesn't light up at all and no connection to serial. Replaced the USB cable and tried serial again, also nothing.

Knowing that it's a symptom of a failing PS, I just shrugged my shoulders, unplugged the power, USB HDD. Opened it up and sure enough saw the PS foiled. Started looking for spare power adapters and found two (5V/3A and 5V/2.5A) lying around the house.

So I tried the 5V/2.5A first and... same problem. Steady power LED, no blue LED, no serial (from both WinXP and Knoppix boot DVD). Installed ESIA on my notebook, tried again, still nothing. Windows doesn't detect anything at all, nothing showing in Device manager. No serial, no jtag. Tried several different USB cables to try to connect thru serial but still no go

Next I used the 5V/3A power adapter and tried all tests again... still the same Sad

On all my tests only the power adapter, network cable and usb to serial cable is connected to the plug. Is there anything else I haven't tried? Any help is very much appreciated.

Izikd posted his own downloader here. You can also check out slimrat

Hi Izikd,

Tried your program and works as expected. Also FYI slimrat now supports premium accounts for RS written in Perl. I've been using it for quite some time now and it works great. It can read links from a text file and I can just continually update the text file to add additional links even when slimrat is running.

Has support for more sites as well, easily updated using plugins:

CZshare.pm       DepositFilesFolder.pm  FastLoad.pm     FileHive.pm    Leteckaposta.pm  Rapidshare.pm  StorageTo.pm   Uploading.pm
DataHu.pm        Direct.pm              FastShare.pm    FreakShare.pm  MediaFire.pm     RomHustler.pm  UlozTo.pm      YouTube.pm
DepositFiles.pm  EasyShare.pm           FileFactory.pm  HotFile.pm     Megaupload.pm    ShareBase.pm   UploadedTo.pm  ZShare.pm

Maybe you can also use it for reference to further improve your program. I will stick to using slimrat since I'm quite used to it already, you have a great program though. Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing. Cheers!

Will try it over the weekend. Thanks for the effort

If you don't really need an esata port then I also think the sheevaplug is a better choice. It's the cheapest among the group if you consider the jtag port which are sold separately for the Gurulugs
12  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Much better than a nslu2? on: February 19, 2010, 11:59:24 AM
cant help but feel ive been a little misunderstood... lol.
I know you cant get N speeds from a nslu2, but what i said is im not getting speeds faster than 100mbit on a 300mbit N connection. (laptop to laptop for example).
All i mean is that this N stuff seems to be a bit of a con really, you dont get close to 300mbit, tho its ok for getting wired speeds without a cable.

All i want from the N network is speeds to compare with a wired connection. Smiley

And yes, N routers with ADSL modems and gigabit ports are rare in UK at least.

i'll go for a sheevaplug i think, and hopefully i'll be able to get 9mbs on samba.

Make sure you're using WPA/WPA2 with AES and not TKIP. I don't get 300mbit speed on my wireless but its definitely faster than my wired (for those devices using 100mbit of course)

I'm also using 2 SPA3102 (one in Philippines and one here with me in Malaysia) and 1 PAP2T with Asterisk 1.4 (previously with a Microsoft XBOX and now moved to SheevaPlug).

I can call any local number in the Philippines from my regular phone at home in Malaysia, and if I'm outside I can call my home number using my mobile, have asterisk answer the call with an IVR and then dial their extension and vice versa

What exactly have you tried?

How about delete the contents of /var/lib/apt/lists/partial then apt-get clean && apt-get update
15  General Category / Application ideas and development Q/A / Re: Sheeva as a smal business/home server on: December 01, 2009, 04:17:20 AM
did you manage to make the asterisk work in your environment??

Yes, I used the version in the Debian repository though and did not compile from source. I have the Sheevaplug here in Malaysia together with the PAP2T, the SPA3102 is in the Philippines
