Re: DHCP Server and Static IP Addresses

In that case you would need to add something like this in dhcpd.conf

host computer {
hardware ethernet 00:00:00:00:00:00;
fixed-address 192.168.x.x;
}

If you google dhcp.conf there are plenty of examples of adding static allocations which should solve your solution

Re: DHCP Server and Static IP Addresses

Well.... If you are using static IP, why use DHCP and if its a DHCP, why bother with static IP's :) However, in general if you have an IP on a machine, it will usually try to regain that IP again at the next lease, or you can set leases to never expire. Simplest solution is to give the machine that ...

Re: Network and disk throughput

Well...I've tweaked my B2 to suit my own needs, but nothing specifically on the networking or samba setups. I have a replacement Cat6 STP patch cable arriving sometime today or tomorrow, so I'll re-test after I get that swapped out. Only thing I can think of that might be significant is I have a lot...

Re: Is lenny upgrade possible ?

If you are running version 1.3 on Bubba 2, you aren't actually running etch, but a large portion of Lenny as well. Obviously you could try running vanilla Lenny for PPC processor if you wanted, but I'm not sure anyone would recommend it.

Re: Network and disk throughput

Well... just run tests using iftop, dd and wget to my external interface and I'm seeing sustained throughput of over 19Mb/s. Limiting factor there is my 20Mb broadband connection. From internal interface to my PC copying a 2GB file over Samba and Gigabit network, I'm getting in excess of 59Mb/s sust...

Re: Network and disk throughput

Aah, I see what you are asking now. Well, I certainly see better than 6 - 7MB/s. I usually find the limiting factor on my network is the broadband connection speed as everything internally is gigabit. I'll run some tests using iperf tomorrow if I get a chance and post the results, but subjectively, ...

Re: Network and disk throughput

Simplest method and one I use is netstat or phpsysinfo. For the GUI lovers, there is vnstat. Both will allow you to monitor what is going on.
There is a how-to on the forum I wrote a few months ago about how to monitor things.

Re: Release notes for BUBBA|2 1.3.0

I can only speak for my self but I upgraded last week and haven't noticed any problem. Been using it since the early Beta and with the exception of the Kernel error message some of us are seeing, it is rock solid. I have turned off my old Wireless router and Bubba is now doing it all. Obviously YMM...

Re: Using the B2 as a mail server

Hi Darren, I use B2 to collect mail from several accounts, plus acts as my SMTP server, for my mobile phone, works account (Thunderbird) and my horde pop collector and it works for me. Are you trying to have the mail for both accounts come direct to your box, or is it held somewhere else and just pu...

Re: Release notes for BUBBA|2 1.3.0

If you do it using apt-get, run apt-get update then your apt-get dist-upgrade. This tells it to update its list of version etc, before trying to determine if there are new packages.

Re: Status of last good stable Bubba Server image?

For a product that was first being reviewed in the press 3 years ago, I think Excito have done a pretty good job of supporting it so far. Not many large companies would support a product for that long. You buy a laptop for example from any main manufacturer and try getting a good level of support af...

Re: VPN

Why use a vpn for it? Whenever I want to access my pandora account, I just go through a US anonymous proxy server and pandora is quite happy.

Mini Howto: Changing Horde download limit

If like me, you find the 4MB download limit of horde annoying, it is pretty simple to fix. This assumes some knowledge of SSH. Don't try this if you are not comfortable editing files, because if you mess the formatting up, you will mess up horde. 1. Log in to ssh 2. su to root or use sudo if you hav...
