whats the point of gigabit if the only speeds you are going to get are limited by the USB interface? I have a seagate dockstar that is similar to the functionality this provides and my transfer speeds are pretty crappy..

Some usb devices can reach 20MB while 100Mb NIC cap you at 10MB.

So archlinux supports GPT then? https://wiki.archlinux.org/index....tion_Table



You are confused. FAT32 is limited to 4Gb filesize. MBR formatted drives are limited to 2Tb in total size without some non-conformant hacks.
You're right. I got confused between FAT32 and win9x era FAT16 limit. Haven't used either of those for a while now.

GPT support (being able to recognize >2TB single partition) has been included and enabled in the kernel for a while now regardless of the linux distro.

EFI bootloader support (being able to boot from a partition >2TB) depends on the bootloader version. So far I haven't noticed any uboot version (the default bootloader for Arch ARM) that includes GPT/EFI for ARM-based systems. Not that many people care since it's considered unnecessary luxury for a embedded ARM system to even have a system drive bigger than 4GB.

Thx for the info, I bit! After spending a ton of hours setting my dd-wrt router up to use as a wireless backup node, only to realize that the kernel doesn't have GPT support I'll gladly shell out $17 for a middleman solution, even if it does cost me an extra 4watts.

I don't see the point of this, software can do all of this, use LogMeIn.com or Remote Desktop or UltraVNC or FTP or VPN or HomePipe. So many options out their. Even Pogo is now doing the same thing via software.
you dont 'get it'. this is a linux machine that you can do whatever you want with. you can run almost all of those services directly on the pogoplug itself.

this is probably an odd question. but is there an easy way to restore the pogoplug to factory specs? (remove optware, and .etc)

I am still trying to understand this. Lets say I have external HDD with family pictures/videos - can I hook this up to POGO device and somehow my family back in India (obviously not on the same network) can see whats there in the HDD?, Is this possible?

But really, how'd you go about doing your music? I don't even need one of these things, I could buy a "real" NAS or set up a full-fledged server in my home, I just want something that works! (Oh, and reps for answers! =P)
If I can interject, I have a variety of devices (Android phones / HP TouchPad / Apple MBPs and iPhones) and I stream to ALL of my devices via Subsonic. My morning commute would be atrocious if I didn't get to stream my old school Howard Stern MP3s. bounce

I've covered it in detail via my website, http://www.twobitcoder.com/?p=278, which, coincidentally, is powered by a PogoPlug.

With the stock pogoplug website UI, out of the box, you can share pictures, videos, and an y files. It's similar to any other cloud based storage solution in that the shares are accessed using the browser, with the exception that the data is on your hard drive. it gets the job done but it's not the prettiest.

What are the hw specs on these? Are these better than the PogoPlug Series 4 with 2x USB3.0 and mSATA support?

Thanks (and repped)! I'm interested in the Time Machine stuff too. I may have to pull the trigger on one of these guys. Just need to get some time to tinker.

My goal, of course, is to use iTunes. I don't even really need (although it would be nice) WAN access to my library. I'd settle for iTunes playing nice between files that are local to my macbook and are located on a NAS.

It's really been a struggle to figure out how to somehow isolate local music -- or remote music -- so, for example, you can still use Genius when you're not connected to a NAS, or the like. I've thought about using a combination of check marks and playlists and blah blah blah, but nothing really seems like it'll work to well.

I guess the alternative is to not use a NAS, specifically, but to stream via Apple Sharing/Firefly, but that doesn't seem particularly elegant either, as then you have Sync issues between the laptop, the NAS and and other iDevices.

Y'know what I mean?

Just beginning to set my black E02 up with ArchlinuxARM on a $5 8gb PNY flash drive from Best Buy. Plan to connect a 3TB external Seagate HD to it for videos, pictures, and music content. Trying to set it up with SAMBA and MiniDLNA. Seems like ArchLinux updated a few things recently. I found that /etc/rc.conf is no longer used, as systemd and systemctrl is used for services. Getting Arch installed was pretty straight forward but the rest is a bit tough for a linux n00b.

i got this all set up and working, but the problem im facing is that every time i reboot or power off the pogoplug, it refuses to boot back up into arch from the the usb drive. i've done this a few times already, and every time i re-install arch, it seems to work just fine again - until i decide to reboot/power off. i do a clean reboot and poweroff from the terminal.

not really sure why it's doing this, and i havent found a solution.

Are you booting Arch off a single USB disk drive or do you have Arch booting off an usb flash drive and another usb disk drive for your data? If you have two drives, try booting with just your boot flash drive connected, then connect the hard drive.
