  1. OrangePi 3 uses the Allwinner H6 chip... and the issue is, basically, AllWinner (deliberately?) messed up the hardware implementation. From the wiki: http://linux-sunxi.org/Linux_mainlining_effort#Status_Matrix
  2. Yeah, no tracking number here either. My order just appeared via local courier on Monday. They said they'd have an OS image up by (last) Wednesday, but nothing yet.
  3. FYI, the Kickstarter rewards are starting to arrive.
  4. 5.1 RC4 just landed. The release notes have all been pretty calm, so I'm going to guess it'll only go to RC7 Figure 3 more weeks for 5.1, a 2 week merge window, and potentially 8 weeks for 5.2... so ~3 months puts us end of June / beginning of July
  5. heh, sorry, I mean that the neo2 has no wifi. It's a ethernet-only board, and (without breaking out the pin header) only one usb-A port soldered. The neo plus 2 might be closer to what you're looking for, but it's not a board I have. Should be very, very similar in performance though.
  6. Sorry, I missed the part about where you need wifi. In that case, I really can't recommend it unless you're using a USB dongle with proper antenna.
  7. I'm running wireguard on a pair of nanopi neo2's, and iperf is giving me >200mbps throughput at ~40% load
  8. I think you're looking for the h3consumption tool that allows/allowed you to turn on/off various peripheral support to control power usage. The issue isn't that it's tied to the version of userspace (eg. stretch), but rather that it only worked with the legacy (3.4.x) kernel
  9. I had to change the entry in my /etc/nsswitch.conf to include "mdns4_minimal" in the "hosts: " line so it would resolve blahblah.local addresses
  10. That's what happens when I don't fact-check what I think I know. You're right, I've somehow merged the 10 & 100 spaces into a fictional space that only exists in my head. The $500 fee was also for STATIC ip addresses, not necessarily public, eg https://www.verizonwireless.com/businessportals/support/faqs/DataServices/faq_static_ip.html Sorry for the misinformation. I'll go back to doing server stuff and leave the troubleshooting to the support guys.
  11. On a 4G connection (or cellular in general) you're often going to be in a private address space. It's usually the 10.100.x.x 'carrier grade nat' reserved space, but varies by carrier. Some carriers will allow you to apply for a public address for your sim card, but there's often a one-time setup fee (last time I ran across it, it was $500 usd setup per account not per sim). If you really need a publically routable IP for your device/servers and can't relocate your services offsite, I'd suggest you spin up a cloud instance on one of the major providers (AWS, DigitalOcean, Azure, etc) and use it as a private VPN endpoint.
  12. Oh heck no, they don't even tell you that the overseas links are capped. Then again, it's like.. ~$21 USD? and there's a waiting list for available fibre ports in most of the major building estates. There's also dual, quad and a useless 10 Gbps plan available. Why anyone would want 10 individual 1 gb links in a residential location beats me. If I were going to be crazy like that, I'd rather a single 10gbps link that I can plug into an SFP+ port.
  13. My ISP uses a passive-fibre setup that is oversubscribed, so it's a time-of-day issue. I'm currently seeing 608 down / 724 up. Given what I pay for it, I'm not going to complain. Running iperf3 between two of my internal machines gives me... [ ID] Interval Transfer Bandwidth Retr [ 4] 0.00-10.00 sec 1.09 GBytes 940 Mbits/sec 0 sender [ 4] 0.00-10.00 sec 1.09 GBytes 939 Mbits/sec receiver so it's not a network issue. I can even get up to ~880Mbps using a little Neo2.
  14. Chwe: same here. FTTH symmetric gigabit, but apparently capped at 20 Mbps for overseas links. Fortunately, that excludes everything in CDN's, so it still feels crazy-fast.
  15. PFsense does, just not the community version. I guess I'll give up and do it the hard way. Armbian + iptables @sfx2000Thanks for the tip.
