hi guys, i am glad i purchased pioneer freedom box, neat piece - however, i find it hard to get going.
i run linuxmint, i am behind a router. goals: i want to back up and download files from/to my laptop and mobile phone. i want to add external drive for that purpose. and, on another partition share files with a small group of alikes. all of that secure and relatively fast. vpn.
with installation of freedombox i had to assign username/pw … ist this account not admin?
what then is admin and pw?
installing and running cockpit: after logging in with username/pw i get an empty page. no adblock/noscirpt etc enabled. (btw privacy badger notified me of trackers!?!? anyway badger also switched off, since i trust you guys)
usb stick and/or drive not detected (are pioneer usb ports not adapted for usb3 usage?)
/home/fbx/ directory write protected (why?)
i access freedombox via ssh - is that best for editing/up-/downloading files to FB?
behind router :
when trying to open ports - router advises me to use dynamic port attribution via upnp - is that not the better way?
so far… any help appreciated
