All makes sense Smiley

Thank you!

Can someone give me a hint on how to install coherence and youtube support?

I don't seem to get it working at all ... No real documentation about coherence and how to use plugins?


Since it seems to work with my TV set it's a welcome alternative to mediatomb.

The very easyest way is installing Webmin, installing openvpn (apt-get install openvpn)

Use webmin to make CA keys and user keys, export them for your openvpn client and off you go. Had that working here yesterday.


But openvpn is well not really userfriendly and i need more people to easy connect to my plug. I managed to get pptp vpn up and running.

See the topic in succes-stories.
19  General Category / Success stories / PPTP VPN Server on: September 01, 2009, 06:36:44 PM
As I was deperatedly trying to setup a VPN server with relatively easy acces on windows machines, I always use PPTP server for it.

But I couldn't get it running at first.

I use Webmin to set up the server, setting up pptp is not very hard, but on sheevaplug (with my kernel 2.6.30.5) you run into issues:

> apt-get install pptpd ppp

I believe it automatically defaults to MPPE auth. But you need to disable this!
Since: MPPE requires support in both the PPP daemon and operating system kernel. --> we dont have it

Second is we are still coping with this bug:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/jaunty/+source/pptpd/+bug/352622

Commenting #logwtmp in /etc/pptpd.conf did the trick, as described.

Now, pptp VPN is working!


I also had the issue that pppd wasn't executable, but think a re-isntall fixed it. Check it if it is still not working?

Aha, I see. Makes quite a difference!

Is it the reason why using SD for filesystem, uncompressed, is this much faster?

Code:

rootfs                  519168    296016    223152  58% /

/dev/mmcblk0p1         1929612      2880   1828712   1% /mnt/sdcard

SD kaart empty

Then i copy
> cp -ax / /mnt/sdcard

na:

Code:
Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on

/dev/mmcblk0p1         1929612    685076   1146516  38% /mnt/sdcard

It uses 700Mb! How is that explained?
