Re: B3 as gateway, throughput issues ...

I seem to recall that someone posted the results of network throughput tests here on the forum before. Probably many years ago. If you search the forums you might get lucky. N.B: It might be that I confuse it with disk performance tests though, because I'm certain there are several theads about that...

Re: How many B3's out there ?

I have a B3 running 24/7, and a spare that has seen little use except some experiments. I'm not using easyfind, so there was at least 201 active installations last year. :)

Hello. repo.excito.org appears to be down for me. Is it for anyone else?
It is not just you, the server isn't responding at this time. I believe Mouette is hosting it, so I suppose we'll hear from him soon.

Re: myownb3.com problems

It appears that the domain registration for myownb3.com has expired either intentionally or unintentionally. The whois record indicates that there was a new registration for the domain on 2019-09-16 and that it was updated yesterday 2019-09-21. It appears to have been taken over by some domain squat...

Re: Excito Bubba 3 - compatible SSDs ?

I have used two different generations of Intel SSD in my b3 without any problems. I currently use a Intel DC S3500, which is a bit on the pricey side, but I wanted a drive with power loss protection. Like you, when I search the forum I see no clear pattern of which SSD:s works or not. There's at lea...

Re: Serial console access

Well, I just checked and I found Rx at 3 and Tx at 4. Don't know why that didn't work out for you. Huh, that's interesting. It appears that the pinouts really do vary between board revisions! I have two B3:s, neither have TX/RX on 3 and 4. Here's a photo of the bottom side of a B3 board, rev PC1, 2...

Re: Serial console access

Re the 6 hole pinout : I've determined¹ that pin 1 is GND but I was unable to detect TX/RX on any of the remaining five pins. I also took a macro photo on the bottom side of the PCB and tried to visually follow the traces from the TX/RX on the edge connector to the 6 holes. Again AFACT, while the t...

Re: Serial console access

Do note that the B3 board actually has 3 different locations where you can create a serial connection. Next to the onboard battery there are ... 2: a row of holes that are meant for a 6-pin male header which is a real straight forward solder job. Oh, do you mean these? You wouldn't happen to know t...

Re: Serial console access via a Rasberry Pi?

What about connecting the serial console via a Raspberry Pi? Are they pin compatible? Can I just connect pin cables directly between GPIO14+15 on the rpi and the rx/tx solering points on the b3? https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/usage/gpio/ https://elinux.org/RPi_Serial_Connection The elinux...

Re: Debian 10 "Buster"

I've compiled a new version with the missing nftables modules. Let me know how it goes... It works! With the new kernel /etc/nftables.conf loaded without errors and my wifi and lan traffic is now masqueraded by nftables as they previously were with iptables. Thank you.

Re: Debian 10 "Buster"

update-alternatives --set iptables /usr/sbin/iptables-legacy Did the trick. I had the same experience. With iptables-legacy selected my old masquerade rules works fine. Before giving in to the legacy approach though, I made a feeble attempted to migrate to nftables. Unfortunately it appears that th...

Re: Debian 10 "Buster"

I'm quite happy to join the choir for praise of Mouette in this thread. I'm grateful for your awesome work on the b3 Debian port. Thank you! I had an almost flawless upgrade experience. I used the command apt full-upgrade rather than apt-get dist-upgrade . It was somewhat surprising that the old ker...

Serial console access

Today I once again found myself wanting serial console access to my b3. While the rescue boot usb image works fine, I imagine that it is a bit more convenient to just connect to the console via usb. Anyone know if the follwing converter could work, as an alternative to the one mentioned on the wiki¹...

Re: Debian 10 "Buster"

Those names you refer to are the so-called 'Predictable Network Interface Naming' names. That has actually been around for quite some time now, at least 5 years, and if it had applied to the B3 you would have already encountered that issue. ... As it stands, eth0 and eth1 are defined as such in the...

Re: Debian 10 "Buster"

I haven't tried yet, but hope to do so real soon now. I'm a bit hesitant because of the move away from legacy network interface names. If I understand the release notes correctly eth0 and eth1 will be replaced by some really weird looking names. root@b3:~# udevadm test-builtin net_id /sys/class/net/...
