Samba File Transfer: External HDD

So I have my RPi 2 that I've been using as a fileshare for all my computers. I tried to transfer a large file, 3+ GB, to it and it gave me a problem because of the SD card space of the Pi and the way it reads in Windows. I have 2 hard drives, 2TB, and 120GB, that are attached to the RPi and are moun...

Re: RPi 2 hogging bandwidth

Have you done all the stuff you need to ensure your public web server is secured? Are you being hacked? Can you see what www-data processes are running when it slows down? Have you set a strong password for your pi userid (or disabled it)? My public web server runs fail2ban and traps dozens of atte...

RPi 2 hogging bandwidth

Hey guys, So I have a raspberry pi 2 that I use as a webserver that I maintain with webmin and shell in a box. I have an external host that redirects me to the pi and I have the necessary ports forwarded to my pi on my router and the linux firewall only allows those ports through. I've noticed that ...

Re: Convert .bat file to similar script on RPi

It changes the process priority of the batch file ... a similiar command on the Pi (Raspbian) would be "nice". Even the new Pi is much slower than recent desktop computers - re-encoding might take hours for each video. ghans On my laptop, it's taking about 15-20 minutes for each video at 720p so I ...

Re: Convert .bat file to similar script on RPi

Convert .bat file to similar script on RPi

I'm a fan of anime and was disappointed that even the RPI 2 couldn't play 10-bit .mkv all that well. So I sought out a tool that would help me in the conversion process and I stumbled upon this tool that uses .bat files and mpv player to convert the files to 8-bit color while hard encoding the subti...

Re: Upgraded installation from Wheezy to Jessie; unable to S

This has happened to me since I upgraded as well. The problem for me is that now I have to physically log onto the RPi before I'm able to log in via SSH. There must be a way to fix this, but for now that's what I've had to do.

RPi B Jessie Auto boot to LXDE

For some reason after doing some routine updates, my pi wants to boot into LXDE everytime I turn it on. Right now I'm running a headless setup with remote access through a host redirect so I really don't need LXDE to start at boot. I tried using raspi-config and set it to boot to console text instea...

Re: Samba Share

I've been having a similar problem as you. I had an HDD working as a network drive formatted as NTFS, but it was too slow. Since I reformatted it to ext4 using GParted on the Pi, I have either had read-only access to it, or the same error as you.

Re: Deathly Slow Speeds as a Media NAS

Hi Rodman101. How are you streaming or do you just mean 'streaming' to your laptop? I'm going to set up a NAS and I'll borrow some advice from this thread thanks, especially re wireless set up. I'm using a Mac as my laptop though so I'm not sure what the best file format to use on my HDD's is going...

Deathly Slow Speeds as a Media NAS

I have my RPi set up as a NAS using Samba and mapped as a network drive on my laptop. I've been trying to use the RPi as a place to store my movies and T.v shows and stream them anywhere in the house. So far I have run into very slow connection speeds on my devices. Right now I have it set up as 120...

Re: Code Review of my first C project

Not to be "that guy," but couldn't the fan just be plugged in to the IDE on the Pi? I get the whole shielding concept, but could I still use your program with the fan connected directly to the board?
