How to mirror one folder from one nas to another using rsync and fun_plug

Attention: I describe unencrypted connections ins this tutorial, for encrypted ones, please visit the online search provider of your choice with the keywords “rsync ssh”.

Attention: Existing configurations of the rsync-server are maybe overwritten. Users who changed something in this area are advised to integrate this tutorial in their configuration on their own.

Installation of PyLoad on Optware

A few days ago i was asked if it would be possible to install PyLoad on the NAS-Systems. Pyload is a download-manager which is written in python and which provides a webinterface, a GUI Program and a CLI-Tool for management. The requestor needed a transfer-medium for his pictures. I found that interesting and investigated a little bit, but had to give up to get it natively running on Fonz fun_plug. I looked around the wiki of PyLoad and stumbled across optware. After a few problems i got everything together to get it running. A word of advice: Pyload needs about 40% of my 256MB Ram (D-Link DNS-325) when running, so if you experience performance-issues in transfers, maybe you should stop pyload first.

Installation of Twonkymedia Server 6 on the Conceptronic CH3SNAS and the D-Link DNS-323

This tutorial is deprecated, please use the tutorial for the current version.

If you need an advanced Mediaserver, Twonkymedia Server is one of the best choices. The Problem is that the installation of Twonkymedia Server 6 is a little bit more complicated than just running a Setup. Before you go on, please make sure that the Fonz fun_plug is installed. The following article has only been tested on the CH3SNAS, DNS-323. An Article for other devices can be found here. If you want to update to the newest version of twonky (and if you’ve already followed this article in the past), then check this out.

Installation of Optware on the D-Link DNS-320, DNS-321, DNS-325, DNS-343, DNS-345 and Conceptronic CH3MNAS

Many people asked me to compile various packages over the last few years. Sometimes i was able to help and sometimes (in rare occasions) i had to reject a request when it was impossible to fulfill it. Then i often told the requestor to install optware which originated from the NSLU2-Project and provides many addition packages. I didn’t have experienc on this, so i had to leave them in the dark. Until recently. Continue reading Installation of Optware on the D-Link DNS-320, DNS-321, DNS-325, DNS-343, DNS-345 and Conceptronic CH3MNAS

Updated Tutorials for the Installation of fun_plug 0.5 on the D-Link DNS-320 Sharecenter Pulse

DNS-320
A few days ago, i got the new D-Link DNS-320. Now i’ve tested the installation of Fonz fun_plug 0.5 on the device and found a few things which i added to the Tutorial for the Installation of Fonz fun_plug 0.5 and the Package Tutorial. Below you can find the summary:

  • Changed HDD Mountpoints. The HDD is now mounted in /mnt/HD/ and not in /mnt anymore. So the the File “fun_plug” needed to be changed to reflect that.
  • Changed store-passwd.sh
    The supplied store-passwd.sh doesn’t work with the DNS-320, but i already found how to store the data and posted a new store-passwd.sh
  • The internal rsync doesn’t work when syncing with the repositories. Specifically redirecting the called binary to /ffp/bin/ solved that issue. The error was:
    sh: xterm: not found
    rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (1899 bytes received so far) [generator]
    rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(601) [generator=3.0.7]
    sh: xterm: not found

store-passwd.sh for the D-Link DNS-320 Sharecenter Pulse

The D-Link DNS-320 needs a different store-passwd.sh than the one supplied with Fonz fun_plug. Basically it is very simple if you look at the contents:

#!/ffp/bin/sh
 
echo "Saving Userdata to /usr/local/config/"
cp -f /etc/passwd /usr/local/config/
cp -f /etc/group /usr/local/config/
cp -f /etc/shadow /usr/local/config/
cp -f /etc/samba/smbpasswd /usr/local/config/

Run the following command to download it to the NAS:

wget http://wolf-u.li/u/172/ -O /ffp/sbin/store-passwd.sh

Then proceed with the installation of Fonz fun_plug.
