If you own such a device, then the first thing you do with it is to upgrade its firmware to NextFW.
The Support forum of Fujitsu-Siemens is full of useful How-Tos which help you reach your goal.
After you’ve done that, you may want to enable the rsync daemon . With a running rsync service you can have basically your own private online backup service.
This is at least what I tried to achieve. But it is tricky to make it run correctly.
Read here about rsync utility and here about rsync daemon (aka rsyncd).
Here is how I configured it so that it works also on Windows:
amsadmin# cat /etc/rsyncd.conf
lock file = /var/run/rsyncd.lock
log file = /var/log/rsyncd.log
pid file = /var/run/rsyncd.pid
use chroot = no
#max verbosity = 1
gid = wheel
uid = amsadmin
path = /mnt/home/storage/backup
comment = bck export area for storage
auth users = amsadmin
secrets file = /mnt/.zap/etc/rsyncd.secrets
read only = no
write only = yes
list = yes
Make sure you make symlinks to /etc/rsyncd.conf and /etc/rsyncd.secrets.
# ln -s /mnt/.zap/etc/rsync.conf /etc/rsyncd.conf
# ln -s /mnt/.zap/etc/rsync.secrets /etc/rsyncd.secrets
The file rsyncd.secrets is a standard plain text file containing something like:
Make sure you symlink rsync.sh from /mnt/.zap/etc/rc.d/rsync.sh to /mnt/.zap/etc/rc0.d/rsync.sh
# ln -s /mnt/.zap/etc/rc.d/rsync.sh /mnt/.zap/etc/rc0.d/rsync.sh
Then restart and it will do the job.
If you wonder from where you should get the rsync on Windows, then just think to Cygwin.
This is how I use rsync.exe to backup my T drive:
rsync.exe -urtav –ignore-errors –exclude=outlook –exclude=RECYCLER –exclude=$RECYCLE.BIN –exclude=”System Volume Information” –delete /cygdrive/T amsadmin@sblan2::backup/
Let me know if I can be of any help.
