With these settings I can plug my RPi into a router and it will configure a web URL to it’s routers IP address (although I haven’t set and UPNP stuff).
I’m using Namecheap so I simply combine this with this..
and it works! 🙂
I tested with
sudo ddclient -daemon=0 -debug -verbose -noquiet
Returns this at the bottom
SUCCESS: rpi: skipped: IP address was already set to 'My WAN IP'.
Also I edited my SSH config since apparently my home NAT router didn’t like keeping the connections alive. These settings went at the bottom of sshd_config – initially I used ServerAlive, which stopped SSH from working :/
After installing Ubuntu on my RPi, I’ll now install Samba. This will allow USB drives attached to the RPi to be accessed by other computers, making the RPi into a NAS device.
- Install Samba:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install samba
- Duplicate original samba settings:
sudo cp /etc/samba/smb.conf /etc/samba/smb.conf.old
