Firewall on LS?
- Has anyone managed to get a firewall running on the
LinkStation? I've had no luck with either a binary of
iptables (from the Yellow Dog distrib) or compiling
iptables on the LS itself. My LS is the 120GB model,
which I have convereted into a Kurobox running Gentoo.
I'm wondering if the Kurobox kernel is missing some
necessary iptables support. It should be built in
since it is a 2.4.x kernel...
Do you Yahoo!?
Yahoo! Mail - Helps protect you from nasty viruses.
- You know what would be the *bomb*? If someone were to use thier Linkstation as the FTP repository :>. Now THAT would really be the cats' meow..----- Original Message -----From: James RonaldSent: Saturday, February 05, 2005 11:38 AMSubject: Re: [LinkStation_General] Digest Number 132ScottSounds like a plan. Let us know with how you want to handle it. Perhaps you could setup an incoming FTP directory with a quota (perhaps password) and then you can move the files to a public or whatever. I don't think it's necessary to duplicate what's generally available elsewhere but we really need a place to host those open source linkstation/kuro specific packages that others have either pieced together, compiled or whatever that are of interest to those of this group.Thanks!!JR----- Original Message -----From: hawkwyndSent: Friday, February 04, 2005 4:26 PMSubject: Re: [LinkStation_General] Digest Number 132Sure I have space available on 3 servers, not a problem, and I would contribute by setting up an FTP area.----- Original Message -----From: James RonaldSent: Friday, February 04, 2005 4:06 PMSubject: Re: [LinkStation_General] Digest Number 132Scott,Have you thought about making files available from your server once you get them, at least for a bit? It's a shame that each yahoo group get only 20MB of space for files. But hey it free, right!! It seems hawking should have a site soon.JR----- Original Message -----From: hawkwyndSent: Friday, February 04, 2005 11:29 AMSubject: Re: [LinkStation_General] Digest Number 132If you can, please email the PDF's directly to me. I'm ordering my HNAS1 today.Thanks!----- Original Message -----From: Steven RosensteinSent: Friday, February 04, 2005 10:45 AMSubject: Re: [LinkStation_General] Digest Number 132I also ordered a Hawking HNAS1 based on what I read in this group
because I have a WD 250gb HD just achin' for a new home. :-) I called
Hawking tech support for info because I couldn't find any in Google.
Apparently the reason there is no info is because the HNAS1 was just
released last month.
I didn't get much info out of them, but what I was able to get were the
HNAS1 User's Guide and Quick Installation Guide (2 PDF's total 7mb). I
can send them up to the files section if non-LinkStation material is
allowed in there. I'm looking forward to hacking through the Linux
internals, and my goal is to hopefully get a version of Fedora Core
installed so I have access to all the FC tools and applications.

Nice work on the pl script by the way. I've had the opportunity to do some perl programming in the past, so I was rusty to say the least. I found my 'black book of Perl' and blew the dust off and after a few hours learned the error of my ways.
> Looking forward to 'turning' my attention on the Hawking HNAS1 box next. Ordering it tomorrow, and I'll probably be bugging everyone some more when I start hacking into it. Since it comes with no HD (you can add your own) I assume the kernel is stored on NVRAM somewhere on the box, which might require a few heavy tricks to get at the root. Won't know until I get one on my bench, though.. I have several PDF files from O'Rielly's books for linux users, think we could put them up on the files area?
