Re: External HDD directory

Hi there, just installed a new Pi, so it seemed like a good opportunity to try out mounting by UUID. New Pi 2 board, 8GB micro-SD card for OS, 2 x SanDisk Cruzer 8GB USB thumb drives, FAT formatted.

Re: ssh + Noip

Hi, If you're using noip to access through the internet, you need to set-up port forwarding on your router. Your noip address should be your "real" internet address, and your Pi is NAT'ed behind that. You need to setup forwarding on your router so that when a request hits your noip address...
