NAS Software

Postby Azazello » 2018-09-19 22:33

Where do I even start? Windows? Linux? If I use Linux, will it be easy to move the files from my Qnap..?

I have a 320 with Windows already installed, so it would be the easiest way to move forward...

*help*

Does Volumio not have Samba built-in .I've been told that if you store files or plug in a hard drive into Hakai it shows up on the network as a library. I'd start with Volumio

Thank you!

Found this tutorial on how to copy files to a Volumio network device, simple enough even for me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJL0IsUTFnI

The next problem is how I'm going to get one Hakai to play from the other ... it doesn't work to just assign the folder like with the Qnap.

I cant get Volumio to find anything else than the Qnap (that it just found) and I have no clue what so ever where the problem lies.

Is there someone who can help out? I have tried to share files through Windows, FreeNAS, Miniserver and Asset. Nothing.

Don't ask me! I have to pop open my HAKAI and find out why my Volumio install doesn't see the SSD. But probably not until tomorrow night.

I'm struggling with something similar. Rebuilt the J3455 board as a NAS, I've done this before but now I can't get it visible on the network. So Volumio on the streamer can't find it...

My Klyde could not “read” side b of the record either.........until I decided to try to flip the record around.......amazing! :-)


I really do hope for you all that you can get it right. I hate computers except my ipad which works and makes it possible for me to type dumb annoying text on this forum. :-)

I was in the middle of testing when the original J3455 failed. So although brief initial impressions were good, I didn't come to any conclusions. Hence trying again with this new one.

Thank you Lego! I got it working today with Twonky on Windows 10 and Lumin, but will give that a go as well and see if I can “mount” the files to Volumio directly as well!

I’ll post some clips later, but my initial impression is that it improves things by quite some margain!

I've taken the same approach as with the LSNAS: one SSD with the operating system (Debian) and the UPnP server (Asset) and another SSD with music files. This now boots happily on the Hakai with both motherboards and I have been able to compare motherboards running as a NAS, and also with the LSNAS which is running Windows 7HP and Asset.

Before I finished the comparisons I wanted to put the Debian set of SSDs into the LSNAS to reconfirm my impressions of Debian vs Windows from a few years ago (I remember a very marginal improvement), but they won't boot and I haven't worked out why....

FWIW the N3050N-D2P soundly (excuse the pun!) beats the J3455 as a NAS, but it's very close against the LSNAS, and I think I prefer the LSNAS.
