I have a raspberry pi running my home PBX, I had a friend ask me what is a good nas so I said hey try a pi… There was some questions about if would preform well as the Ethernet and USB are shared… from what my speed tests show it’s not an issue.
If you try this let me know what you get for speeds and transfer rates.
also after this test I set the maximum speed for Samba to 85mbit/s so my voip phones have more then enough bandwidth for phone calls.
Right now I’m building a Encoder to Encoder a live stream to JTV/LiveStream/Ustream in real time up to 1080p using FFMPEG
Cause we wanted the maximum CPU Cycles for the Encoder to do it’s work we are building this on Debian as “Headless” and I’m building a Web GUI for monitoring and controlling the encoder remotely
Here is what is looks like:
I will also in the upcoming week be rebuilding this live on TheGeekGroup’s Justin TV Channel and you can ask me anything you want to know about encoding…
I just finished setting up my PGP Key:—–BEGIN PGP PUBLIC KEY BLOCK—–

Sorry for not posting very much I been moving around my bedroom cleaning and getting ready to make this room more of an office… As well as painting and getting a new bed… as right now I really don’t have one since my air bed failed. So.. After I get my room done up I will be around more and get to post more blog posts…
One of the thing I have to do as a System Administrator is run Backups. There are many ways to do Backups the only issue I have is it has to be easy and work. There are many commercial Backup systems from EMC2 to Full QNAP, and even Home based FreeNAS Solutions. I find that a Linux server with a USB Hard drive and git works the best… and here to you can set one up too!
Note all my how-to’s are done with debian so… here we go.
First as with all debian OS’s UPDATE IT!apt-get update
Next install git and rsync:apt-get install git rsync
Alright.. Now lets setup a folder to use for the storage of the Backups.mkdir /backups/
Now edit /backup.run and add the following lines:#!/bin/bash cd /backups/ # Backup Linux Server 1
Now chmod it:chmod 755 /backups.run
and now we will need to make a SSH Key for the server.
Run ssh-keygen on your machine, and just hit enter when asked for a password. Next, add the contents of the public key file ( ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub ) into ~/.ssh/authorized_keys on the server you are going to be backing up (the file should be a chmod of 600).
Now you may run the /backup.run with
Now just set a cronjob to backup automatically.
There you go a full backup system. Watch out for the next blog post where we will make a web frontend for git to view the backups.
Here is a list of all the common proxy headers I can find… They are useful if you need to log the IP behind a porxy.
Of course if you know of any, That missed please let me know..
