No worries, was a test to see how my ISP cloud was with it's linkages (I get 50 gig if I recall, Lol knowing my luck it will be 50MB, Lol), as I have never used it before. Just another option for linking and storing my NMS data.
Ah that's really cool man! I've got Tomatoe on my router so I've been thinking of hooking up a harddrive to it and using it as a NAS with Internet access. That way I wouldn't have to use up cloud storage with one.com
Sorry it's an open source OS for routers. Played around a bit with VoIP and dynamic dns and things like that a couple of years ago it supports running an external HDD as a NAS through a USB interface. I could probably set that up as an FTP server and store everything media related on it instead of using up cloud storage. Since I've now got 250/100 fibre it should work pretty OK
Hehe, I was looking myself at personal storage along those lines myself last week funny enough. Most cloud storage devices still require a third party site, so I scratched personal cloud storage device due to that fact. I did read up on some options for adding an HDD as you mentioned, but then thought Pft, hehe, too much like hard work. (It probably is not but I gave up keeping tabs on tech trends years ago Lol, which is a pity, as now my brain hurts when I look into such solutions Lol)
I was looking at solutions for storing and uploading files and images direct from my own storage to a site to cut out online cloud storage solutions., ie, complete control and non dependency on outside sources, apart from the need for internet obviously. There are some solutions for creating a standalone cloud on a separate computer tasked for such by adding the second pute on your network (Creating it as a server basically by using Google app), but I again it does need that third party, unless there are other solutions. Can't recall the details offhand, but may take a look at that solution again at some point, as I have an old pute in the loft I could possibly task for such a venture.
Haha it's not easing keeping up. I try and fail hahaha.
Yeah that's a good way of doing it as well Specially if you already have an old computer just lying around.
Yeah I don't really know of a way to not use a third party service if you don't have a static IP. Maybe if you purchase a domain name from some DNS service they might have some dynamic DNS service that always points to to your server. Still need the software on the server though to tell it where to point to.
Though I guess there should be quite a few tutorials on how to set up a home server and storage
