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.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
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.
