Re: nslu2 - remote file access?
What you propose is not easily accomplished with a stock slug. The web
interface for the hardware is designed primarily for administrative
configuration with subsequent access occurring by way of mounting the
resulting SMB share(s). To maximize safety and accessibility, you will
need to unsling the NSLU2 in order to install additional software
allowing access outside of your subnet. (I would not recommend opening
port 445 to those outside of your subnet.)
One option, as James suggested, is to install a photo album package
such as Gallery. In addition to images, this software can also support
other media such as movie clips and the like. I am not sure about
audio files, though...maybe?
Another means of serving files to those outside of your subnet is to
simplly install apache through the Optware feeds and configure it to
allow for directory indexing. You can then share the URL for the
particular directory containing the files you would like to share with
others. Personally, I do not like permitting directory indexing as it
allows visitors too much freedom within the published tree, unless
.htaccess or apache configuration settings are used to restrict
movement. Nevertheless, this is likely the quickest means to the end
you appear to desire.
