Re: IP address issues on Ubuntu 12.04.2 server edition

Not sure what the issue is. I could see an "Amahi Network" file in /etc/Network Manager/system-connections that had the correct info in it (as far as I could see). However, I gave up trying to find out why that wasn't being picked up and reinstalled the desktop version. All well now. Interestingly, ...

IP address issues on Ubuntu 12.04.2 server edition

So, real life has kept me away from Amahi lately, but I thought I'd take the opportunity of a HD upgrade to reinstall afresh and get up to speed on Ubuntu-based Amahi. Server is headless, relatively uncomplicated (Intel D510MO board, a small SSD for the OS and big spinning disk for data) and has bee...

Re: Help with IPsec on Linux client

The IPsec-VPN app is a pure IPsec VPN not an L2TP/IPsec, so the client you've referred to in the original post won't work. I've not used a linux client with it previously as OpenVPN seemed to do the job most of the time; the main motivation for the app was to enable iOS devices to connect.

Re: Timemachine backups with Amahi

An updated update to the above: She's dead jim. Each time it created a backup, it tried to create a new sparsebundle. I've given up for now and just reformatted one of my drives with 500gb of clear space in a seperate partition for time machine backups. :) I know - this is the point I've been wrest...

Re: Android

To be sure, there are several different VPN technology available and they are not in any way interoperable. Most modern operating systems support some types of VPN out of the box, but not all and Android is no different in this respect. When we say "support" in this context we mean "has a nice, easy...

Re: Android

Good news: OpenVPN and IPsec-VPN will happily coexist on your Amahi box. Bad news: I'm not aware of anyone getting IPsec-VPN to work from an Android device either, without some major surgery to the Android device. (And from googling the issue, this is not Amahi-related - many Android users struggle ...

Re: Timemachine backups with Amahi

Apologies for the delay in getting back to you. I've been trying to work out what to ask for next to narrow this down. I've a few commands I'd like you to run if you can. The following each result in using fpaste to store the output on t'web and print a short URL as the result. If you could post the...

Re: Timemachine backups with Amahi

Greyhole support is being worked on, but at the moment is very unreliable. I know this is going to be a problem for a lot of users, so I've not forgotten it. As a work around in the short term, the default location for files is /var/hda/files/amahi-time-machine. If you change this location in AppleV...

Re: Timemachine backups with Amahi

Ok, some clues here, but not quite what I was expecting! In particular, it claims to have started the avahi loop and registered the services and then some 90 mins later, says it has failed to contact the server. Could you edit /etc/netatalk/afpd.conf and change from logging from log_info to log_maxd...

Re: Timemachine backups with Amahi

Ok, thanks. It sounds like somewhere along the way, afpd is throwing a wobbly at the amended AppleVolumes.default and therefore not registering the share with avahi. Could you post or fpaste /var/log/afpd.log for me?
