  1. Hello folks, I have been searching a lot on this topic without finding any solution. I have a bananapi and an edimax ac usb stick. I set it up to be a hotspot a few years back, it was working quite well and I stored an image as backup. To date, I wanted to re-use it but surprisingly, restoring that image on an SD does not produce anymore a working hotspot...this is awful/awesome since nothing has changed in between. This image is running on kernel 4.x (I have read on the forum that on kernel 5.x hotspot has problems) and I have also tried with the latest armbian OS based on kernel 5.x I don't know what to do anymore, since hostapd starts correctly, access point is enabled and up, but not SSID is visible to any device.... Is there someone that had a similar problem? Thanks Gianni
  2. Hello guys, I am experiencing such a problem: When I boot my orangepi it starts and it is visible in the router's page view getting IP with dhcp. As soon as I connect over ssh (at least this is the way to trigger it, not sure if it is hapening automatically after a while), the device disappears from the network and it is no more available! I have seen this behaviour happening on 2 different routers. Then I rebooted the device again and in the router config I put the same IP statically linked to the device and I tried to connect over ssh and it worked without disappearing anymore. So it sounds like a bug somewhere using dhcp protocol. Is someone else experienced such problem? How I can help to definitely fix this annoying bug? Thanks, Gianni
  3. Very good!! it is working for me as well
  4. If I run these commands, I get error that modules are in use...how did you do it?
  5. In the detailed steps you can find link to android store for the app...for a video check this out:snapvpn example Basically you use the box as wifi ap and all devices connected to it can use the vpn gateway in trasparente way thus a smarttv over wifi
  6. Hi this is the project I am working on that explains why a PPTP is more than enough (when the vpn server on orange pi is available) for the purpose: snapvpn
  7. Interesting tro know...why the hell it is burning like that?!?!
  8. Yes I know...it is already planned to switch over to a modern vpn protocol...but for my project right now doesn't really matter. Anyway the box will be completely isolated from the internal network and also guests won't see each other.

  10. I think I found something interesting: low consumption how to change the fex: change fex settings
  11. Yeah...I will check what I can do with armbian-config...thanks Not only raspberry...armbian as well on banana pi!
  12. Good to know it...I will then create a second generation Anything about disabling GPU, on board wifi and something else?
  13. Thank you for your reply...this could be a way to disable it, although I prefer to do it in the config.txt if it is possible...anything about disabling the GPU? I want to switch all those off not really for consumption but to reduce the overall heating of the board
  14. Hello guys, soon I will receive this nice toy (512MB) and I want to be prepared for my project: a domestic vpn server (using pptp) serving 1 o 2 guests at most. For this project I just need the RJ45 socket thus I would like to switch off as much as possible (e.g. GPU, on board wifi and others if there). Someone can point me to some resources or list what I can do to accomplish this? P.S. I know that pptp is not as secure as IPSec (and maybe IPSec is heavier for such device) but for the purpose of my project it is enough. Thanks a lot Gianni
