User-friendly NAS/Filesharing web GUI?
Long story made short I have two embedded devices here: And Iomega iConnect and a Pogoplug Pro. Both are designed stock as consumer 'NAS' boxes. Downside is both have glaring downsides in their operation that make the stock OS worthless.
Good side is both seem to have a pretty solid community effort towards running a basic do-as-you-want *nix distro. The Iomega has Debian and the Pogoplug has Arch Linux, both with pretty solid repositories available.
What my intent to do is have one or the other (preferably the Iomega. It has a single core 1Ghz proc and 256MB ram vs the Pogoplug which is a dual core 2x750Mhz proc of the same architecture but only 128MB ram) return as a NAS device (since both of them suck at this, we have our drives attached to the router which does a REAL rudimentary NAS setup which more or less is just simple Samba/CIFS access) with added filesharing (torrent/usenet) ability and a hopeful nicety of open web access to these files.
But here is the catch: Given others in the house are not so tech saavy, any user interface to these functions has to be fairly user friendly. Right off the top of my head I know Webmin is available and is more than capable, but is lacking in the user friendliness area. My curiosity is if anyone is aware of any other software package that improves on that?
I swear, some people should have pace-makers installed to free up the resources. Breathing and heart beat taxes their whole system, all of their brain cells wasted on life support.-two bit brains, and the second bit is wasted on parity! ~head_spaz
