Anonymous access

Does anyone know if there is a way to enable anonymous access in the
NSLU2? I am trying to have slimserver software pull digital music off
of it. Slimserver has no setting for a user id or password. It also
will not work with a mapped drive.

Any help is appreciated.

Where to acquire an NSLU2 for less than $75?

I need to get another one of these but I'm short on cash.  Anyone 
know where to get one for less than $75?

print server on NSLU2

I've looked into some uses for the NSLU2, and one handy feature to 
have would be to have it as a print server. However, this might mean 
having lots of vendor-specific binary issues. IT might be 
possible,however, for the print server to just forward the port and 
have the driver dependent on the end-users computer... I believe 
that is how the commerical usb print servers operate if I am not 
mistaken. Anyone want to take a look at this?

i did the update to 2.6.3 in cvs and i also successfully transfered a 2.6gb 
file. unfortunately busybox seems to have a problem with such big files. ls 
and rm doesn't seem to work via ssh/telnet.

Re: print server on NSLU2

This could be done, but only with a custom kernel that isn't
USB-crippled. That is, unless we can create device nodes and write
directly to the /dev/usb/x USB ports, without needing the usbprinter
driver.

I thought about doing this exact thing, but ended up breaking down and
buying a JetDirect because I couldn't find good documentation for the
JetDirect protocol (I need scanning support too). I'd be willing to work
on such a project if someone can hunt down and/or reverse-engineer the
JetDirect stuff. We'd also need someone who knows how to create and
write to the device nodes without kernel modification, if that is at all
possible.

Re: print server on NSLU2

I have been (unsuccessfully) pouring through the lpr documenation.  
Samba does printing well, and my theory is that we are, at least in 
proof-of-concept, half of the way there with file sharing.

Second Call: Mac to NSLU2 NFS 0.1


has anyone any comment on why I am seeing ro access for NFS shares 
(static and dynamic mounting) from OSX, even with (rw,insecure) or 
mount -o "-P" to (rw) esports?

I can see that the share is mounted uid 502, gid 501....

is there something in the 0.1 build that is not quite kosher?

loadavg


Anyone notice the loadavg of an idle box is always pegged at 1.00 or
higher?

# cat /proc/loadavg
1.08 1.00 0.86 1/20 491

I'm running unslung 1.11b, don't really want to go back to V25 factory
just to compare loadavg.  I've killed everything (nfs, inetd, smb,
etc) except my running telnetd just to see if there was anything funky
with certain services.  Can anyone confirm and explain?  I'm going to
boot my other unslung slug with serial port w/o HDD attached and
compare and will report in another message.

:( Re: loadavg

Just scoured the nslu2 irc logs and found out that it's related to the
high rate of ethernet interrupts per sec:

# cat /proc/interrupts
  0:          0   csr
  1:        246   csr
  2:         28   csr
  3:          0   ixp425_eth
  5:     124858   IXP425 Timer 1
 15:        137   serial
 18:    4868085   ixp425_eth
 22:          1   pbuttons
 26:       9284   ehci_hcd
 27:          0   usb-ohci
 28:          0   usb-ohci
 29:          1   rbuttons

Where, then, they found out that it's the normal behavior of the
ethernet driver:

Take a look here:
http://froogle.google.com/froogle?q=NSLU2&btnG=Search+Froogle&scoring=p

and here:
http://www.pricegrabber.com/search_getprod.php?masterid=2896815&found=1&search=NSLU2

They go for $80 with shipping.

Hope this helps.
