  1. Clearfog pro network : make a gateway

    Hi, I finally got it working the way I wanted it, I post the /etc/network/interfaces for anyone interested : # Local loopback auto lo iface lo inet loopback # Autoup first the switch port, then the subsystem lan ports and last the bridge auto eth0 eth1 eth2 lan1 lan2 lan3 lan4 lan5 lan6 wlp2s0 iface eth0 inet manual iface eth1 inet manual iface eth2 inet manual iface lan1 inet manual iface lan2 inet manual iface lan3 inet manual iface lan4 inet manual iface lan5 inet manual iface lan6 inet manual iface wlp2s0 inet manual # Configure the bridge, give ports and configure address auto br0 iface br0 inet dhcp bridge_ports eth0 lan1 lan2 lan3 lan4 lan5 lan6 wlp2s0 # pre-up iw dev wlp2s0 set 4addr on # post-down iw dev wlp2s0 set 4addr off The bridge receives its IP dynamically from the ISP box (facing eth0). I run "dhcp-helper -b eth0" so that any dhcp request on any bridged interfaces (lan and wifi) is forwarded to the ISP box. This way, there is only one network ( Hopes this helps. Regards
  2. clearfogpro plug fan

    Hello, I have a small fan (2-3cm diameter). Do you know if it is possible to plug it on the clearfogpro board ? On the mikrobus header, one can see GND, 5V, 3.3V slots. Can I plug the fan wires into these ? Thanks for your attention Regards
  3. Clearfog pro network : make a gateway

    Hi, Many thanks for this detailed answeer. I will look into it carefully. I already have a couple of questions. You said that you have two independent network between your isp box and the clearfogpro lan. eth0 is the clearfog interface which faces your isp box, so I guess it receives a local IP (in the range of, however the bridge br0 is assigned a static IP in the same local range. So it looks like it is the same network ? Also, eth1 and lanX interfaces are configured automatically with "auto eth1 lan1 ...", but later they are said to be set up manually. Does it mean you assign them a local IP manually ? Regards
  4. Hi, Sorry for the late reply. Here is the output I get : ID# ATTRIBUTE_NAME FLAG VALUE WORST THRESH TYPE UPDATED WHEN_FAILED RAW_VALUE 194 Temperature_Celsius 0x0000 100 100 000 Old_age Offline - 37 I issued this command right after startup. It tends to increase (39 a few minutes after), but very slowly. The room in which is the board is at 20-21°C I'll let you know up to which it grows. Hopes this helps. Regards
  5. Hello, I installed the latest armbian mainline image on my clearfog pro. I plugged a wifi card on it. I would like to set up the armbian network so as to use it as a gateway towards the ISP box. Concretely, here the scheme : internet <---- ADSL-----> ISP box <------- RJ45 ----------> clearfog <-------- wifi --------> PC1, tablet, ... <------- RJ45 -------> PC2, printer, ... Currently I use this scheme with an old router (linksys/dd-wrt) which is configured as a gateway : - all dhcp request are forwarded to the ISP box - there is only one network : the ISP box is (local) and assigns all other devices (connected indirectly by the router) an IP like 192.168.1.XXX I would like to do the same with clearfog, but could not find any relevant guide or tutorial to do so, after days googling. Yet, there are some useful posts on this forum, but not enough detailing the way they do. Could anyone detail me what I would need to do ? Do i need to set up a bridge ? Thanks for your kind help Regards
  6. Hi, Thanks to this guide, everything works now flawlessly. System is now on the M.2 SSD and is accessible.
  7. Hi, Many thanks for your reply. I am going power it and let you know how it works. You said you have on M2 SSD attached to the clearfogpro. That is my case too, I would like to install the armbian OS on it. May I know how you proceeded ? As far as I know one need to boot over one SD card and then redirect the installation on the M2 SSD. Then there are some button to move on the clearfogpro to make it boot on the SSD (?) Regards
  8. Hi, I am surprised no one answeers (?) The most important is the sata power cable, is it necessary to connect the yellow cable (12V) ? As it is a 2.5" hard drive, it only needs 5V power (like usb). Is it safe to leave it ? (it is not used by the hard drive) or must I disconnect it ? Regards
  9. Hello, I have recently bought one clearfogpro and one orangepi+ 2e. I power them with a RD65A adapter which delivers both 5V and 12V DC. You can see everything on the pictures. There is also a 2.5" hard drive connected to the clearfogpro. Before powering up everything, I would like to be sure all cables are correctly connected, there is the picture of all connections to the RD65A 1) The main power cable : the red (phase) goes to the L, the blue (neutral) goes to the N, and the green/yellow goes to the ground. 2) V1 is 5V for RD65A, so I plugged the orangepi+ 2e and red cable of the sata power 3) V2 is 12V for RD65A, so I plugged the clearfogpro on it, there is also the yellow cable of the sata power, but not sure it is needed as it is a 2.5" hard drive, I assume all black cables are to be connected to the ground or negative : which should be COM on the RD65A, then all red cables should go on the positive entry (+V1 or +V2). The power of the 4D65A is 66W, I think it is enough for all device connected, even at boot when all devices requires the maximum of power. Let me know if there is something to correct or improve.

  10. Looking for board for nas

    Hi, I finally ordered a clearfog pro to make a NAS/router behind my ISP modem. I also bought a mPCIe sata controller (ASM1061) with two sata ports and a mPCIe wifi card (Compex WLE600VX). I would like to install armbian on a M.2 SSD (it is not the emmc version). I guess I have to boot primarily on a SD card, then what do I have to do in order to boot on the M.2 SSD ? To help debugging, I can make use of the serial console on the micro usb port, is that right ? Regards
  11. Power supply units

    I would like to raise the "issue" of power supply units. Indeed, they are the key component of all what we build, it is also a security issue (what happens at full load) and it seems to me quite difficult to distinguish between the numerous PSU over the market. I am just an newbie on this topic, just willing to get a stable, silent (I mean without annoying sharp noise, not talking about cooling fans) and safe PSUs. I found this page UK.html which is the beginning of what could help. Most of us probably already own a charger adapter, I just wonder if "charger adapter" is just another name for PSU and if one can use its one's to power its boards ? Or maybe technology between both is different and it is not a good idea. Lastly, I was advocated to use this PSU 35W dual output 5v 12v to power the clearfog pro (12v) and one 2.5" hard drive. Although this kind of PSU needs to cut wires and assemble them by hand, I think of buying this one : as I can power the clearfog pro (12V / 3A) and at least two 2.5" disks (5V 6A) or one disk and another board dedicated to video/hdmi.
  12. Orange Pi Plus 2E now available

    Is this board still available ? It is mostly sold out in most vendors sites (aliexpress, banggood, ...)
  13. Looking for board for nas

    Do the clearfog base/pro still suffer from emmc issues ?
  14. Looking for board for nas

    Are you saying that buying from China is like trying to win at the lottery ? Some people around I already ordered from aliexpress, as an example, they were not disappointed until now. However, they did not ordered electronic stuff.
  15. Looking for board for nas

    Dit it come with its antennas ? Can this wifi board act as an access point ?
