Re: Automatically compress and encrypt folder?

It doesn't have to be on the fly. The local Rpi will compress the folder (using tar, I've sorted that out) and then encrypt. Finally this will be placed in a folder for the off-site Rpi to fetch. I want it encrypted because it will be stored in someone else's home. I trust this person, but I think w...

Automatically compress and encrypt folder?

I'm building a simple backup system for my data and it has both on-site and off-site components (both RasPis with one external HDD each). Locally I will just rsync a few folders from my computer to RasPi number one over ssh with a cron job. For Off-site I was thinking that the number one should comp...

How fast must my HDD transfer rate be to play HD movies?

I bought a couple of cheap USB hubs from Hong Kong and their transfer rate is about 24 Mbits/sec. This likely suffices for what I intend to use one for, but a friend asked if she could get the other one to use with her RasPi running XBMC and serving as a media centre. Would that work? What's the rec...

Re: Raspberry Pi(rate)Box 1.0 is here

I researched it a little bit last night when I saw this post. In short (someone in the know is welcome to correct me if I'm wrong): - The concept of the PirateBox is a small computer (the current versions of the OS are either for a RasPi {based on Arch} or a choice of three wireless network routers ...

Installing and configuring Apache - How to?

Hey all, I've finally had time to get my Pi up and running (the process was simple enough once I could find a working SD card reader at home >.<) Anyway, I'm running it headless and planning to run a web server on it. I've started looking around the forums and wiki for tips on how to do this, but th...

image for headless server setup out of the box?

I should probably ask this before spending money on extra leads and cables... Since the first thing I'm gonna do with my Pi is to set up an ssh server and make sure it starts at boot up, is there an image of raspbian out there that already has this tweak? If I could just plug it into my router and a...

Hi everyone Santa brought a raspberry pi for my son! However, I’m a tad concerned about the smell of it, very strong when we took it out of the little plastic wrapper.

Re: Streaming media over LAN from RasPi?

For the NAS part of it I was just thinking I'll use scp/WinScp. As ghans said I was actually contemplating the video-tag in html5.

Re: Will you get the A or B? Why?

I\'m getting the Model B myself. For me it\'s not the RAM upgrade that\'s the most important, but the ethernet port.

Since I want to have it as a local webserver/network storage the ethernet port and the two USB ports are the most important ports of all.
