Tutorials. Multiple BSSIDs with DD-WRT - Interactive HowTo. I have seen several HowTos, tutorials, and forum posts about how to setup multiple (B)SSIDs using DD-WRT and although most of these write-ups indeed helped creating multiple SSIDs, none gave me an actual working virtual SSID.

Multiple BSSIDs with DD-WRT - Interactive HowTo

Most of the time I wasn't even able to connect to the new virtual interface and in those rare occassions that it did connect, I never got an IP address. The reason none of these write-ups work, is because they are all based on the same base tutorial which, for one reason or the other, no longer works reliably. I took all these write-ups and figured out what is needed to get it to work again. The following HowTo is what worked for me on my Linksys WRT54GL v1.1 and Linksys WRT310N. It created two BSSIDs, each with their own MAC address so any device is able to connect to either BSSID without getting utterly confused.

I was only able to test it on my routers, so I would appreciate it if you dropped me an email here to let me know if this worked for you too (or not). VPN Pricing.

Alternative Firmware for Wireless APs: Thibor. So far, I've told you about three alternative firmware packages for wireless access points (APs): DD-WRT, OpenWRT, and Talisman.

Alternative Firmware for Wireless APs: Thibor

If you missed those stories, you can read them at our Web site at their respective URLs: Continuing this series, this week, I give you a peek into Thibor. Unlike the previously discussed firmware, Thibor is designed specifically for the Linksys WRT54G, WRT54GL, WRT54GS, and WRTSL54GS routers. Like the other firmware packages, Thibor is based on the open source code published by Linksys. Thibor is actually a continuation of the firmware package HyperWRT, which started in 2004 and was, as far as I know, maintained until early 2005. How do you install DropBox on your QNAP?

QNAP NAS Memory Upgrade Guide - Quick tutorial on increasing your RAM

While the procedure to upgrade the memory will differ by model, in the most basic of terms, this article will serve as a general guide to upgrading memory. The NAS we are using today is the QNAP TS-451. The TS-451 is the first NAS I have seen from QNAP to offer an easy solution to opening up the enclosure for the memory upgrade procedure. On older NAS units or Pro models with the metal casing, you will want to start off by pulling all the screws off the rear panel. For the TS-451, you will need to pull a few screws to release the rear panel, of course they have put the warranty void sticker over the chassis at bottom left in the image.

Once you get your NAS open, it will look similar to this. Seen above are the screws you will need to remove to get at the motherboard for the TS-451. How to install plugins in Etherpad. Virtualization for the Small Network - Part 2. Thu, 21 Feb 2008 04:25 Doug Reid Introduction In my last article, I discussed various technologies from companies including VMware, Virtual Iron, Citrix, and Microsoft.

Virtualization for the Small Network - Part 2

These software solutions enable virtualization, the technology that enables sharing physical computing resources such as CPUs, memory, storage, and networks among multiple different servers. Virtualization enables maximizing the utilization of computing investment, savings in energy costs and data center floor space, and provides compelling technology options for both large and small networks. Virtualization for the Small Network - Part 1. Thu, 27 Dec 2007 04:50 Doug Reid Introduction By now, you've probably heard of virtualization technology.

Virtualization for the Small Network - Part 1

VMware, a virtual software provider, had a very successful IPO earlier this year, and there has been other high profile market activity, such as Dell's $1.4B acquisition of Equal Logic, a virtual storage company. Virtualization is really a hotbed of development and growth, with industry analysis indicating that most IT departments either have or will undertake virtualization projects within the next year. The concept of virtualization has been around for some time, but in the last few years, has really grown in application and utility, even for the small network. How to import and export virtual machines (VM) to/from Virtualization Station (including importing virtual machines from on-line VM markets) ?

What is the function of import and export?

How to import and export virtual machines (VM) to/from Virtualization Station (including importing virtual machines from on-line VM markets) ?

The function of importing and exporting virtual machines (VMs) can quickly move VMs from one Hypervisor, such as VMware and VirtualBox, to another. It can reduce the time of setting up a new VM environment among different legacy Hypervisors. There are several compatible VM formats many Hypervisors support so that users can utilize this function to move VMs without spending lots of time configuring settings. Virtualization Station supports importing and exporting VMs. The *.ova, *.ovf and *.vmx formats are supported by VMs exported from VirtualBox and VMWare; while the *.ovf and *.qvm formats are supported to export VMs for other Hypervisors or the Virtualization Station on other QNAP NAS.

How to link iSCSI targets to VMs of Virtualization Station?

iSCSI is an internet protocol-based storage networking standard for connecting data storage devices and computers by using IP network transferring SCSI commands. iSCSI can be used to transfer data and remote storage over long distances in an intranet. iSCSI can also be used to transmit data in local area networks ( LANs ) and wide area networks ( WANs ). (Wikipedia. iSCSI. Available: Last accessed 17th April 2014.) What is iSCSI target? QNAP Virtualization Station Reviewed. Introduction I'm a big fan of virtualization.

QNAP Virtualization Station Reviewed

It enables multiple computing functions to run on the same hardware, saving electricity and space, reducing heat and noise output and improving network operations and efficiency. The challenge with virtualization is ensuring the hardware running the virtual machines (VMs) has enough processing power and memory to deliver the required performance, yet still generate all those savings. Processors and memory capacity in NASes are increasing and more NAS vendors are adding support for running VMs. QNAP TS-x53 Pro Turbo NAS Family Reviewed.

The Big Picture. QNAP Turbo NAS Software User Manual. File Storage & Sharing. Access your QNAP NAS remotely via WebDAV. What is WebDAV and how can one benefit from it? WebDAV (Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning), is a set of extensions to the HTTP(S) protocol that allows a web server to appear as a standard network drive. With WebDAV support, the QNAP NAS user will be able to access the share folders via HTTP/HTTPS protocol remotely.

WebDAV clients are native to Windows XP/Vista, Mac OS X, etc. You can simply mount the network drives (web folders) from one of these operating systems to one or several share folders on the NAS. A WebDAV server benefits from the HTTP infrastructure in the following ways: Advanced Folder Permissions on QNAP NAS. Advanced folder permissions is a feature of QNAP NAS provided for you to configure the access control of users and user groups to the folders and subfolders. You can manage folder permissions from Microsoft Windows or the web-based management interface of the NAS without complicated procedure.

If the answer to that question is “Yes!” Then a lot of people on the dark internet would love to be your new friend. Raspberry Pi Tor relay. Install OpenVPN on QNAP – NAS Wiki.

Advanced Home Server. Yes, smart network attached storage (NAS) devices support secure VPNs. An open source product named OpenVPN is installed by default on QNAP, Synology, and Asustor. Configuration is easy and, overall, the process takes only a fraction of the effort required for a Windows oriented SSL VPN. OpenVPN may be activated by simply checking off a box and naming the authorized users. However, since SSL is involved, an additional layer of complication is required to manage SSL certificates.

SSL is much easier to manage on a NAS device than on a Windows server, but it still takes a little effort. The final configuration steps involve a little port forwarding on your router, downloading a configuration file from your NAS device t0 your PC, downloading and installing the free OpenVPN client program, then copying the configuration file into an OpenVPN folder.
