We offen need a wireless file server to share files conveniently when we hold a computer workshop.So this project is very usefull.Just insert the usb flash disk into the edison board.Every computer in the local area can download the files in usb flash disk.
Step 1: Tools and Materials.Power Your Edison.
- Tools needed:
- Materials needed:
U flash disk
There are two USB ports on the mini breakout and I assumed one was for power and communication and the other was for connecting devices to the Edison so it could act as a USB host.
There are actually 3 different ways to power your Edison via the breakout board.
Step 2: Edison Get Start-Install Samba
Assemble board and login in.
set up wifi and get the current Wi-Fi* IP address.
If you are a beginner,you can follow the guide.
sudo apt-get install samba
sudo apt-get install samba-common-bin
Step 3: Configure Samba Service
modify the smb.conf and restart.
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
comment = Temporary file space
path = /tmp
read only = no
public = yes
Step 4: Remote Access to Ublinux
Add name and password,
smbpasswd -a xmaker
Connect your computer to the same wireless router.Now we can open the windows file manager->network.
Then we can see some device in local network and double-click UBILINUX.
Input name and password that you have set up.
Step 5: Mount Your U Flash Disk and Set Automatically Start
Last step is mounting your u flash disk.Insert your u flash disk by OTG wire.
mount /dev/sda1 /tmp
It can work now.But we don't like start the file sever every time you want to use.We have a way to set automatically start .Just modify file:.profile and save.
mount dev/sda1 /tmp
And,To make mine more beautiful.I make a pen holder with 3d printer,and install edison board in it.Mine is designed in fusion360.
