Re: RSYNC and symlinks

Thanks to Kendek and bls I have managed to fix this. In the end I scrapped the idea of using a mounted share to do the rsync and used SSH key logins between the Pi and the Asustor to do the rsync backup. Unfortunately due to the 'security settings' of the Asustor I have to do that a the Asustor's ro...

Re: RSYNC and symlinks

Ah, I see, thank you for the clarification. I think the Asustor uses busybox Linux as it’s o/s. I will have a look at those options.

Thanks for the help.

Hi everyone, I've had a look around and I can't see anything directly that looks like this problem. I have a raspberry pi (what a surprise) that I want to back up the SD card to as a hot backup. To do this I have a mount on an ASUSTOR NAS that is mounted to \mnt\backups\ The FSTab entry is this:- //...

Ah, I was starting to suspect python. Thanks for that.

Now all I have to work out is why it's not able to get to the files it creates in .well-known/

One step forward at least.

Re: Migrating from IPv4 server to IPv6

Okay, I think I get it now. I'll have a play with ISC-DHCP-SERVER on another box and see what I can create. I've noticed that the sky route does have an IPv6 firewall, so that's a start. It's also got an IPv6 DHCP server which I'll have to disable first. Looks like sky addresses start 2a02:c7f: on e...

Re: Migrating from IPv4 server to IPv6

Hi Dougie (a fellow Basingstoke user, yay) That's great, but if I'm going to be getting IPv6 addresses then I'm going to want to be in control of them so I can set the reservations and update my Bind9 configuration with them. For IPv4 I can do that with ids-dchp-server (which I believe can be an IPv...

Migrating from IPv4 server to IPv6

Good afternoon everyone, Currently I have a pair of PIs set up as a primary and fail-over providing DHCP (isc-dhcp-server) and DNS (Bind9) for IPv4. Other PIs on the network provide other services (external domain mail, website, that sort of thing). That all works great but I want to migrate over to...

Re: Remove USB from hub connected to PI

I would like to have it connected to the computer (rPi) for power but use its ethernet jack for regular VOIP functions. If that helps. Sounds like what you'll need to do is make a custom cable that provides the power lines but not the data lines (Use Pins 1 & 4 but not 2 & 3). I would guess...

Re: Domain for Apache Webserver/My Public IP

Assuming you're on VM's cable network, you're pretty safe assuming the IP address you have (82.19.92.35) is going to remain pretty well static. That said, you're saying that you're using the Fritz Box 7270 which is a (most excellent) DSL router, but the IP address is on the cable network, so I'm ass...

Re: Virgin Super Hub - Pi set up problems

Ok, so for ping PI to Internet works, PI to Super Hub works and PI to Windows 7 works.

What service on the Windows 7 PC are you trying to get? What's not working, you say you can't get a connection but a connection to what? Ping indicates that the network is there so I'm guessing a service?

Re: No IP address via DHCP

It is true that your ISP will assign your router a single external IP address. This will typically be dynamically assigned and will expire over time and be renewed with another (you can find out this external address using sites such as http://www.whatsmyip.org/ ). But this is completely separate f...

Re: No IP address via DHCP

Looks like whatever offers your devices their DHCP address is not running. I am guessing that the DHCP address will be supplied by your ISP (the people who provided your cable modem) and it may be that they have a list of MACs that they will assign a DHCP address to, and that the MAC of your PI is n...
