I am trying to set up a NAS on my home network.
My first approach was to connect a USB-HDD to my router (FritzBox 7430) directly. Access through Nautilus (smb:) and mounting (cifs) were successfull, but speed to exchange data is limited to 2 MB/s. Usually I have ~50 MB/s, so I guess the implementation of Samba in my FritzBox is the limiting factor.
Next trial would be to attach that HDD to the Freedombox.
- I guess, I will have to provide extra power as the power supplied by the Olimex LIME will probably not be sufficient?
- Will Freedbombox be able to provide a higher speed as 2 MB/s?
- The documentation only mentions smb: in Nautilus. For synchronizing with Unison I need a mounting point, thus cifs. Is this supported?
