Re: Use B3 WAN port to extend LAN

Hey, I just understood how cool is this configuration if your router/switch is not gigabit, but only 100m. Now I can hook up my devices directly to B3 for occasinal data-intensive tasks, like initial backup for (almost) 10x more speed :)

Re: Use B3 WAN port to extend LAN

RandomUsername, thanks, worked great!

just had to change bridge_ports eth1 wlan0 to bridge_ports all wlan0
+ add bridge_hw directive, otherwise B3 gets IP over DHCP using MAC of WAN port instead of LAN

Gordon, yes, they were installed per default

Use B3 WAN port to extend LAN

Hi, I use B3 as server inside LAN (no routing) behind a DD-WRT router / DHCP server with port forwarding. Sadly, I ran out of free LAN sockets on that. But there's a free WAN port on B3 left!

Drop ftd as BT client in favor of Transmission-daemon

Hi guys, as transmission-daemon works almost "out of the box" on B3, why still keep that ugly ftd for torrents? Transmission is kept up-to-date with modern protocol features like DHT, PEX, encryption and so on and gives better BT experience. Genial RPC interface would allow great Web UI integration ...

Field for .torrent file upload in Downloads.

Hi, it would be nice to have an file upload field in Downloads to upload the .torrent file from the browser. Then, ftd would start downloading. Currently torrent downloading does not work for private (authentication-based) torrent trackers, where it's impossible to give a direct link to .torrent, be...

Re: Release notes for Excito B3 software version 2.3.1

Do "bug fixes" include Time Machine Target mode (netatalk/avahi updates) for native Mac OS X 10.7 Lion backups?
