A fix for QNAP

    Dear Guest Visitor → Once you register and log-in:

    This forum does not automatically send notices of new content. So if, for example, you would like to be notified by mail when Steve posts an update to his blog (or of any other specific activity anywhere else), you need to tell the system what to “Watch” for you. Please checkout the “Tips & Tricks” page for details about that... and other tips!

  • Larger Font Styles

    Just a quick heads-up that I've implemented larger font variants of our forum's light and dark page styles. You can select the style of your choice by scrolling to the footer of any page here. This might be more comfortable (it is for me) for those with high-resolution displays where the standard fonts, while permitting a lot of text to fit on the screen, might be uncomfortably small.

Hi there,

After listening to episode 817 i just wanted to let you know for those who owns a QNAP i just installed Debian on mine, so there is hope to have better security on it.

I'm not sure if it supports all devices but it is supposed to work on the Marvell Kirkwood platform. You find the guides how to install Debian on it here:

I have a TS-431 and it's not capable of running Debian, or any custom OS, as far as I can tell. So I've got it as fully blocked from external access as I can.
