Share USB Devices over the Network from the NAS
« on: April 10, 2015, 06:14:34 AM »

I wrote a USB Sharing system that runs on the D-Link ShareCenter NAS's that turns the NAS into a USB Device Server. You plug the USB device you want to share, (e.g security dongle, scanner, sd-card reader, printer, etc) into the USB port on your NAS then you install client software on the remote machines and use it as if it was directly connected , even though its connected to your NAS.

See here for more information http://www.virtualhere.com/nas_faq

its not free but you can try it for 10 days, if you find it useful the price is $US39

The downloads are (scroll to bottom) https://www.virtualhere.com/nas

1. In the "Applications" section there are no icons (in the package of the addon should be 3 pictures - virtualhere_off.png, virtualhere_on.png & virtualhere_display.png)



2. Not work USB webcam "Logitech C170". In "dmesg" I see the error. It seems there are missing some modules for kernel

THanks for the feedback.

I tried putting the virtualhere_on.png (_off & _display) in the root directory of the install as well as under web/images and it still wont load the images. I took a look at an existing package and it seems to be under web/images however my package wont load the icons from there. Is there a config file that specifies where the icons are? (I tried apkg.rc and xml but there seems no entry there)

VirtualHere doesnt require kernel modules. The issue you are getting is because the Linux kernel itself has bugs in the xhci module in 3.2. Is 3.10 or later going in the next firmware update for the dlink that supports apps? That would likely fix the problem.

Also there is bug in the mkpkg_v2.1 program because it includes itself in the package it builds.

Also can you add an option to specify the output filename of the package, at the moment im using "rename" with a regex to change the name to something more friendly.

Thanks,

Michael

Put the files "virtualhere_*.png" in the directory "web". Add the file "init.sh" the creation of symlink for pictures
Code: [Select]
ln -s $path/web/*.png $WEBPATHhttps://app.box.com/s/emi9dkm8hhebd6gyq77v4ur25adzxqga
