Oh. I thought you needed two network interfaces and a bridge configuration to set up a transparent proxy. Could you please point me to a HOWTO that will show me how to do it with one interface?

My WRT350Nv1.0 router is running OpenWRT and I redirect all http traffic to my Sheevaplug using iptables which is how I managed to run a transparent proxy

Hii all,

I'm new to the Sheeva thing and it took me couple of days to test, ruin, recover and update the Sheeva.
So now it's running Ubuntu 9.04 from USB HDD with 160GB.

My goal is to make Sheeva as a small home media server.
With ability to store shared things.
I download a lot from Rapidshare, and I want to free my computers from being powered on late night downloading stuff.


To the point - I'm searching for:
  • Web-GUI downloader
  • HTTP links (Rapidshare, etc.)
  • Nice & easy GUI

(Option to torrents will be nice).


Thanks,
Izik.

A quick question to google about rapidshare downloader cli returns:
plowshare
plowshare is a command-line downloader/uploader for some of the most popular file-sharing websites. It works on UNIX-like systems and presently supports Megaupload, Rapidshare, 2Shared, 4Shared, ZShare, Badongo, DepositFiles and Mediafire. Refer to the README for more info.

aria2c
aria2 is a lightweight  multi-protocol & multi-source, cross platform download  utility operated in command-line. It supports HTTP/HTTPS, FTP, BitTorrent and Metalink.
aria2 has built-in XML-RPC interface. You can manipulate aria2 via XML-RPC interface.
aria2 runs on Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X and Windows.

grapid
gRapid allows premium users of RapidShare to automate downloading of files without having to attend to them. It relies on Java and GNU Wget to process downloads from a file containing Rapidshare links, one on each line. It can perform simultaneous downloads of any number you may desire

slimrat
Slimrat is a command-line and graphical application for automated downloading from file hosters like Rapidshare, Megaupload, Depositfiles and many more. The current version is 0.9.5.5, which is a bugfix release.

I've never tested any of them but one of them just might suit your needs. Cheers!

So far so good but I get this message:

Unknown HZ value! (89) Assume 100.

when running certain commands like uname, uptime, top and free.

On which distro do you get this?  It shouldn't happen on Debian because it was fixed.  But in any case, it's harmless and can be ignored.

Sorry my bad, didn't notice I was booted into Gentoo  Embarrassed Embarrassed . The message doesn't show in Debian

Since I only have 1 8Gb SDHC card and wanted to test the Debian installer but also wanted to keep Gentoo, I ended up re-partitioning my SD card to put Debian in it as well. So now I have:

mmcblk0p1: /boot
mmcblk0p2: swap
mmcblk0p3: / (Gentoo)
mmcblk0p4: / (Debian)

And from my uboot prompt, "run bootcmd_debian" will boot into mmcblk0p4 and load Debian and "run bootcmd_gentoo" will boot into mmcblk0p3 and load Gentoo). Both of them using the 2.6.31.4 kernel from mmcblk0p1 and use mmcblk0p2 as swap. The plug boots into Ubuntu Jaunty by default.

The installation hanged while formatting mmcblk0p4 but went through on the second try. So far so good but I get this message:

Unknown HZ value! (89) Assume 100.

when running certain commands like uname, uptime, top and free.

I just finished installing Gentoo on my 2nd SheevaPlug during the weekend, will probably play around with Gentoo for a few more days then I'll give the Debian installer a whirl. My 1st SheevaPlug is already running Debian from the tarball you provided in your site and has been running happily for months now. Thanks for all your help.
21  General Category / General Discussion / Re: How to set up a network printer? on: August 23, 2009, 07:54:49 PM
I'll be installing my brother printer on my SheevaPlug as well, will probably do it tonight. I'll post it here if I manage to make it work

Have a same problem. I just replaced the USB cable with another one I have lying around and now it's a tight fit. No more disconnects even if I move it around

LrdShaper,

Will you post instructions on installing Cups-PDF and Squid on the plug?

I'm sure others would be interested also.

Thanks,
~Joe

Sorry it took me ages. Juggling a lot of projects at work lately. I posted the link to the guide I put up in the Success Stories sub-forum.

Cheers!
24  General Category / Success stories / Setup CUPS-PDF as a network printer on: June 27, 2009, 03:17:51 AM
I put up a step-by-step guide on how I installed and configured CUPS-PDF on my plug for PDF Printing over the network. Link here. Cheers!

EDIT: Just thought I should point out that my plug is running Debian Lenny from a tarball made by Martin Michlmayr

I'm slowly moving the services and apps I have on my XBOX and NSLU2 to the SheevaPlug. I have successfully moved:
1) Subversion
2) Cross-compilation envs for PSP, ReadyNAS Sparc devices and DD-WRT
3) Rtorrent
4) Cups-PDF for PDF printing over the network straight to a user's samba share
5) Squid as transparent proxy to provide local web cache chained to Privoxy for ad and banner filtering

Still on the list are:
1) Compiling linux drivers for Brother MFC-440CN so I can use the Scan feature and have it save the image to a samba share on the SheevaPlug
2) Tor + Privoxy for online anonymity
3) Email server
4) Nagios
5) RSSDler
6) Asterisk + PAP2T + SPA3102
7) SSH Server for accessing my entire home network from anywhere via tunnels (still thinking if this should stay on my NSLU2 for now)

As for media streaming, itunes server this is already being done by my ReadyNAS NV+ and it will stay there. Automated backups are also working well on the ReadyNAS (WOL the computer, mount the folder to backup, rsync the contents, shutdown the computer. It will do these for each computer at home)

After I've moved all the services, the XBOX will go to our bedroom after installing XBMC.

EDIT: Sorry for the double post, my connection keeps timing out
27  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Can't interrupt autoboot on: June 15, 2009, 08:57:59 PM
Sorry if this is a repost, I searched the forums and couldn't find anything related. I can't seem to interrupt autoboot on the plug. I'm connecting over minicom on a Fedora 11 computer, I haven't changed anything on the plug except updating it so it's still running the stock version of Ubuntu. I can type just fine after the plug has booted, and I can watch the entire boot process, but it doesn't recognize that I am pressing keys at the autoboot countdown. In fact it seems that the keystrokes are read later in the boot process. Help?

Did you check if you disabled HW and SW flow control?
Code:
A -    Serial Device      : /dev/ttyUSB1
B - Lockfile Location     : /var/lock
C -   Callin Program      :
D -  Callout Program      :
E -    Bps/Par/Bits       : 115200 8N1
F - Hardware Flow Control : No
G - Software Flow Control : No

run minicom -s and check

I did.
Actually I see it in front of me right now.

Can someone else confirm?

Yup I see it. Little hard to view though

Do you mean you don't x86 box at all? Or x86-Linux?

If you do have an x86 box then you can boot off a live CD.


I have an x86 machine, my HTPC running vista home premium. Everything else is running linux (nslu2, readynas, xbox, dns-323, and sheevaplug). Found an old 512mb thumb with Slax 6.0.2 on it, will try tonight. Thanks

Alas I don't have an x86 machine running linux. I do have a couple of 2gb thumb drive lying around. I'm gonna put slax onto one of it and try with that, thanks
