What's running on 10.142.174.123? Does that NAS box support NFS shares, because NFS shares are much easier to use with Linux (as they support the full Linux permissions bits for owner, group and world stuff).
FreeNAS-11.2-U5

yes, it seems to support NFS, though i have never used NFS.

No need to hide local IP addresses - they cannot be accessed from outside your LAN, make debugging harder and any bot inside can find the shares in seconds :lol: true...

Yes, i am aware of Pi-Top, and the Motorola Lapdock. what i was thinking is something with a simple, but good size HDMI screen, and a USB keyboard and trackpad. just plug any Rpi into it and away you go. IIRC, the Pi-Top uses some GPIO pins, and my experience with the Motorola Lapdock is that they c...

Re: well, i pre-ordered a Rpi4B-4GB...

Yum and apt are package managers, not compilers.
yes, i know. but the need to download the source, configure it, compile it, and install it have been replaced by pre-compiled packages that install themselves, without having to find and resolve dependencies manually.
