Re: Setting up Raspberry Pi as a Mail server

Hi,
This guide is pretty good
http://ducky-pond.com/posts/9

It will cover everything required to get you up and running. I have my phone connected to it with IMAP (push mail) rather than POP3, but that should be possible too if that's preferred.

Re: Pi as a proxy server

Do you have SSH set up? If so then that's all you need from the Pi side of things. On the machine that you want to use a web browser on while proxying traffic through your Pi, install Putty. Open Putty Expand Connection > SSH > Tunnels Click the "Dynamic" Radio button Enter a port into "Source port"...

Re: use of raspberry as server

The simple answer is yes.

You can't expect it to be able to do everything as fast as a "real" server to work, but it is a perfectly capable little device for most things you can throw at it. There are plenty of reports of people having done and documented all the things you mention in your post.

If you want help then you're going to have to give people something to work with. You were given the answer but don't like it, but it's likely to be the one that most people recommend.

Re: Turbo Clocks with lower Core Clock

What is your server doing? To say that servers in general don't need high CPU is a bit of a sweeping statement. I'm not saying that in your case it isn't accurate, but the chances are that for most processes extra CPU on demand would be a good thing. This includes things like file copying, people ha...

Hi, I would always use the UUID to mount my drives as it saves any "randomness" or chance with which device it decides to be. Run the command "sudo ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid/" to get your UUID Then add the following line to /etc/fstab UUID={previous UUID} /mnt/mounteddrive ext4 defaults,data=writeback...

Re: Use as a mico-server 24/7?

It'll be fine. There are things you can do to minimize the SDCard writes because as you say, they will eventually wear out. I forget the name of the software (ZRam rings a bell but don't quote me on that) that stores all logs in RAM and only does an hourly dump from RAM to the SD card rather than l...

Re: ADSL Router, Dynamic IP and my idea around it...

What's wrong with no-IP? It's perfect for exactly this situation. Also, have your checked your router to see if it supports dynamic DNS, the last 3 routers I've had all do and they've been far from advanced routers. I used to use dyndns before I changed to a static IP. And as for auto-uploading, FTP...

Hi, Fat32 is a bad system to chose for this as it doesn't support the linux permissions structure. You will want to format it to EXT2. 3 or 4 (I went with 4). Having done that you will be able to chmod and chown the folder you want to put your torrents in. I'm far from an expert with Linux at this s...

Re: USB hard drive on Pi

- Mount your drive on the Pi using fstab
- Install samba and use this to share the USB drive.


There are lots of guides on how to do both of these things which I'll let you search for. The keywords to use for each step are "fstab" and "samba".
