I cannot believe you guys spend a lot of time and money no a problem that should be solved by the manufacturer??

Why pay extra? This plug is no more then a year old. I demanded a replacementplug or full refund. I will not pay another 10 bucks and fix it myself. I can EXPECT it to last longer then a  year. Which it didn't manage.

Yep, had some problems with openVPN too.
Installed pptp instead.

If I got it right, can't there be a second interface be mounted on the hardware?

Thought I read something about eth0 and eth1 before.

Can't you set the ubuntu repo's and install it from there?

Anyway, I really love to see how you setup mediatomb, my TV is upnp but well I just don't know anything abou thow to configure it.

Too bad Sad

Maybe completedly off, but I am curious if there is a 8.04 package available also?

The packages for 9.04 are not as stable/well made as the 8.04 ones. Got some real issues in certain python packages.
8  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Can't connect to sheevaplug from outside home network on: September 04, 2009, 06:01:04 AM
Yes, that should be possible.
I always connect trough my domainname coz I'm to lazy to set up 2 settings in putty Wink

have you set up your static IP

I set up a static IP, the /etc/network/interfaces looks like this:

Make sure you use the right network, I use the 192.168.1 things.

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
#iface eth0 inet dhcp   <---- I commented this one

iface eth0 inet static

address = internal network address
the gateway = your router

I forward the needed router ports to

This is my list of ports (maybe useful):
FTP-Server TCP 21 21
HTTP-Server TCP 80 80
OpenVPN    TCP 1194 1194
Webmin TCP 10000 10000
SABnzbd TCP 8080 8080
VPN TCP 1723 1723
SSH TCP 22 22

perfectly working .deb packages on www.webmin.com

Install it

dpkg -i <package name>

install openvpn

apt-get install openvpn

then start webmin
go to your browser

Browse with https to your sheevaplug with port 10000 (like https://192.168.1.xxx:10000)

You should see webmin login screen. Use a user with sudo possibility.

In the section 'networking' you should see 'openvpn'

From there you create a CA, create a key in it, and create a vpn.
You can click on 'export' to get a tarball with certificate files you need on your client (including the ovpn config file).
The exact procedure slipped my mind but puzzling around should get you there.

Works quite nice.

But, like I said, I really prefer a pptp vpn server and connect with any windows box.

11  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: new release on: September 03, 2009, 02:56:14 AM
IPSec == impossible? I would be interested in building a custom kernel based on with IPSec if someone could point me in the right direction...

Don't know if it's of any help but pptp just works, only thing is this kernel is not having MPPE encryption so you should disable it.
12  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Huge rootfs copy to sd-card? on: September 03, 2009, 02:45:19 AM
I see no reason why it would not work.

I wonder what the speed will be, theoretically it should increase since writing/reading less bits should be faster.
As long as the processor keeps up, but I don't think that's a problem.

13  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Huge rootfs copy to sd-card? on: September 02, 2009, 02:07:58 PM
It's quite a good compression the JFFS2 file system  is managing then.

I will make a backup of current filesystem to tar and see if indeed I get around a 50% compression. But I believe the copying went just fine Wink
