Re: Add-On PKG Applications Available - What Applications Do You

Something like rtorrent or some other remote enable bittorrent client.

The python package helps a lot in this regards, but not complete there.

And really the web applications are nice, but a determined developer can get those on, it's the base things (python/ruby/etc) that really extend the usefulness of this device, at least in my opinion.

Eric,

Thanks.  The first group of applications are definitely focused more on end users than developers.  Just to show off the platform potential.  We'll working on more developer focused applications.  This sort of feedback helps us prioritize between the two types of users.

Thanks

Re: Add-On PKG Applications Available - What Applications Do You

James,

Great feedback.

Are there any specific SMTP server features/functions that you would require?  Or just having the general fucntionality as an add-on application is good enough?

There is already a SYSLOG server built into the base software for Cisco Smart Storage.

WIthin your administration GUI you can find the Syslog server in Applications > Syslog Server

You can enable/disable the server, setup log settings, email notifications, filters, and of course view the log

Remote Replication between Cisco Smart Storage devices is also already built into the software.

WIthin the administration GUI, go to Backup > Remote Replication

You can setup replication between two devices on a scheduled basis directly from the GUI.

Dropbox Client

uTorrent (or similiar with ability to monitor folders for .torrent file)

TwonkyServer

Embedded Cisco Camera software

Support for more than just Mozy (Intronis, Egnyte, S3, for cloud storage)

Re: Add-On PKG Applications Available - What Applications Do You

Ben,

Thanks for the input.

  • Second torrent request.  Noted

  • For TwonkyServer, are their specific features missing from the OEM Twonky version in the base firmware that you would like to see?  The included Twonky version is meant to meet most peoples needs, but obviously it is not the full featured server.

  • For camera software, are there specific features or use cases you would like to see in such application?

Thanks

Re: Add-On PKG Applications Available - What Applications Do You

Specifically for twonkyserver, it seems to work pretty well, but the transcoding part of it doesn't seem to work, at least in my configuration?  Maybe I'm doing something wrong, if it doesn't right now, that'd be a nice feature to have.

New Member

Re: Add-On PKG Applications Available - What Applications Do You

Eric,

Appreciate for the follow-up.  Transcoding isn't supported in the OEM/Basic license included.  I'll look into this for the future.

Thanks.

Re: Add-On PKG Applications Available - What Applications Do You

Re: Add-On PKG Applications Available - What Applications Do You

Hi Doishi,

There are some updates on the twonky media server which I'm looking for, in twonkyserver6.0.30.

http://www.twonkyforum.com/downloads/6.0.30/ seems to list some files. Could you please help with the correct

file and how to do the upgrade(a guide if available) on my NSS 324? QNAP is giving update via .qpkg file @

http://www.twonkyforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=8913

When the package is available for download from twonky website, from a user perspective it doesnt feel good if I'm not able to update my system. Hope Cisco documentation for this product will be updated soon with all these details, like for other products.

Thanks

Re: Add-On PKG Applications Available - What Applications Do You

Hello,

I just bought an NSS 326 after having used QNAP, Thecus and Synology NASses in the last couple of years.

What bothers me is that no NAS has an Active Directory implementation.

I don't mean that the NAS becomes a member of AD but the NAS itself can have the role as a Active Directory Master.

So for me that would be an interesting Add-On package for the NSS 3xx Series.

At least that is on my wishlist.

Regards,

Klaasdj

Re: Add-On PKG Applications Available - What Applications Do You

Thanks for the input.  Looks like you have tested out lots of NAS products.  Anything that helps differentiate the good from the bad?  As for the domain controller, I agree it would be nice to get rid of  Windows Server running just for the sake of AD.  We'll monitor the Samba4 domain controller and see how viable that becomes in the future.

Re: Add-On PKG Applications Available - What Applications Do You

Hello,

at the moment I'm missing most the xdove and java packages ;-)

After that a CalDav and GroupDav Server would enable Calender and Contacts Support ...

And a DNS Server would be also great.

Thanks

Re: Add-On PKG Applications Available - What Applications Do You

Ognian,

Thanks for the input.  Very interesting to see how many of the requests are application related (CalDAV) versus network (DNS) versus foundational (JAVA).  You've got a little bit of everything in your wishlist.

Really enabling the nss to use the already existing packages that are available for the qnaps would be the smartest use of time and resources.

Ben,

Thanks.  There is good and bad to both approaches.  But point heard.

Re: Add-On PKG Applications Available - What Applications Do You

hello,

i want the nss as only machine which is always powered on. therefor i would need some features

the ability to send magic packet frames for wake on lan

a name server and email server

a name server to manage the local names as soa and forward any other queries to official name servers

at the moment this is working on a linux system with bind

a mail server ( imap(s) / pop3(s) / smtp(s) ) for the local network with forward and get (as client) to an isp mailserver

like this

mail client <---LAN---> nss <---@---> internet mail server <---@---> rest of the internet

at the moment this is working on a linux system with postfix, dovecot and getmail

would be great if the nss could do this

greetings

Re: Add-On PKG Applications Available - What Applications Do You

Tweetz,

Looks like email server and DNS are the popular requests today.    Thanks for the extra level of detail for your use case.  For the Wake on LAN request, you are looking for the Smart Storage to wake other devices on the network?

New Member

Re: Add-On PKG Applications Available - What Applications Do You

correct. the smart storage should wake workstations in the local network.

but i don't know if there is a need to build an application package therefor.

should be possible to create a web based application running on the nss webserver to do this job.

i'll try that as soon as my ordered nss arrive

greetings

New Member

Re: Add-On PKG Applications Available - What Applications Do You

Tweetz,

Post back on your wake on LAN solution.  A simple php web app or phyton app should be able to do this.

Thanks

New Member

Re: Add-On PKG Applications Available - What Applications Do You

Please make it one more. I would love to see mail and DNS server in there too. Small businesses would love those features.

Re: Add-On PKG Applications Available - What Applications Do You

Hi,

I've got NSS322 model and would like to have support for Firebird database server there.

Is it possible by chance?

Thanking you in advance.

New Member

Re: Add-On PKG Applications Available - What Applications Do You

Anna,

Thanks for the post.   What is the specific attraction to Firebird over mySQL which is already embedded in the Smart Storage platform?

New Member

Re: Add-On PKG Applications Available - What Applications Do You

doishi, thanks for reply.

we've got corporate database powered by Firebird.

i wish i could dispose of firebird server if it will be possible to arrange support of firebird on our new NSS322)

Thanking you in advance.
