I’ve been playing around with Wake On Lan on my network for quite some time. Wake on Lan is a system whereby remote computers can wake up other computers that are sleeping.
As I’ve written about before, I’ve set up a NAS (network attached storage) for our home by installing FreeNAS on an old PC.
yeah, it’s another boring post on the NAS saga. Who knows, maybe someone reading this will actually learn something useful.
What a day. First I had to fix the internet (props out to the Cisco crew, thanks for the help!), then reactor #3 went offline, and to top it off I had to put the kids to bed.
I got FreeNAS up and running without too much work started to transfer some files to the new share I created.
Since we have two computers at home and because I’m a bit of a computer geek (or glutton for punishment), I’ve started looking into NAS’s.
