    Got it to work just fine since I posted this. Thanks for all the help.

    Documented here: https://ubos.net/docs/users/installation/espressobin.html#optional-boot-from-a-sata-disk-instead-of-an-sd-card

    We documented the default factory settings at the bottom of this page: https://ubos.net/docs/users/installation/espressobin.html

    I have two printed enclosures right next to me, one containing an SSD and one with a spinning disk. Both have fans, and one even has some additional electronics in it. Fits just fine for me.

    The box is CC-licensed, so you are welcome to make whatever changes you’d like to make so it fits your needs.

    Have any webcams on your home network? Ever had a virus on your laptop? Run buggy software? Have friends (or have kids, and they have friends) who connect unknown devices to your network? Only place where I would run nfs is in a closed, well-managed (enterprise) network where I know all the parts and manage them myself.

    There is currently no nfs support in UBOS, mostly because it’s so hard to secure nfs.

    Re available packages, all the headless “apps” and “accessories” in UBOS can be listed with
    pacman -Sl hl (“list all packages in the hl (headless) repository”).

    Re DynDNS, you have a couple of choices:
    * If you have a dynamic DNS setup, say at abc.dyndns.org, when you create your site with ubos-admin, use that as a the hostname.
    * or you can use hostname *, in which case you can only deploy a single site to your EspressoBIN, but it will respond to any hostname that points to that device.

    For additional Nextcloud apps, speccify those as “accessories” during “ubos-admin createsite”.

    Happy to hear that it is working for you!

    Nice table at the end of the document, but what does it mean? XXX vs Alternate XXX is not helpful without a paragraph of text for each one of the alternatives.

    Hi cuddlepuncher,

    running apps like NextCloud or Selfoss on an EspressoBIN that also acts as a home router with SATA hard drive is exactly why I’ve been very excited about the EspressoBIN.

    The WiFi should work (although I have not been able to test yet … lead times for the module are quite long) but unfortunately the UBOS “gateway” configuration does not work yet as it should. At least UBOS does not automate it yet. I have posted various questions about just how this is supposed to work in various places, but no answers … (Some on this wiki)

    I’d really like
    1) one upstream interface (“wan0”) that
    2) two local interfaces (“lan0/1”) but with different IP addresses, so we can attach different routing policies.

    I’ve attempted to copy the settings as they are in Ubuntu and Arch as described here, but I’ve always ended up with strange configurations not ready to ship to people.

    Globalscale — do you have networking documentation in progress? Coming soon? Never?

    Glad you think so, cuddlepuncher! Well, there was some discussion today at the Open Source Bridge conference in Portland, OR, and I expect more at Indie Web Summit tomorrow and Sunday.

    On-line: list is here: http://ubos.net/community/ — or if specific to EspressoBIN, just continue this thread.

    @TheLinuxBug: I had been trying to be really clear in my post, but apparently I failed.

    I have plenty of the connectors you point out, the trouble is, none of them work, as the board is male and the disk is male, too. That seems to be a mistake on the board, the Moles should be female — or even better, be a SATA power connector, not Molex.

    Hi Bryan,

    I take whatever I can 🙂 A 2.5in drive would go better with the size of the board IMHO, though.

    Thanks,

    Johannes.

    It would be really nice if there were an enclosure that also fits a hard disk. After all, what use is that SATA port if there is no room for a disk?

    Is there?
