Can I use SWAT on my PogoV4 & E02
October 12, 2020 06:13PM
Hi all, Thought I would reawaken my Unix skills with a NAS project and some hardware hacks, I have successfully updated uBoot to the latest version and Linux 5.8.3 Kirkwood on an SDCARD in a Pogo V4 thanks to all the instructions on this forum. All seems to be well so far and I have installed Samba onto the box with apt-get.

I wanted to simplify every day management of the Samba Server using SWAT or a similar web page interface so I can mount USB sticks and create shares. If I try and download the SWAT package, apt-get Install swat I get an unable to locate package error. Has SWAT been installed with the Samba package and if so how do I enable it. If not, is it the best tool to use or should I be looking for something else?

I have not installed a webserver package yet on the device and was also hoping for recommendations on a small footprint web server package that wont swamp the processor.

Thanks - Bob

Just thought I would do an update on this post for anyone else who is trying to make a simple front end for a pogo NAS.

In the end, I went for an compact installation of Webmin and then installed the modules for the items I wanted to manage which includes Samba. I used the following instructions to do the install

1 - Install Perl
sudo apt-get install libnet-ssleay-perl

2 - Get the latest minimal install (I had already downloaded the latest file and copied it over my network with SMB)
wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin-1.9xx-minimal.tar.gz

3 - Extract the files
sudo tar -zxvf webmin-1.9xx-minimal.tar.gz

4 - make the install point and install
sudo mkdir /var/www/webmin
cd webmin-1.9xx
sudo sh setup.sh /var/www/webmin

Follow the instructions in the install script (defaults will be fine) and then when its installed, run a browser and go to
https://<IP address>:10000/

From the webmin menu, you should find an add module option which will allow you to download the SAMBA server management and any other module you want.

I cant take credit for this - I found all the info on https://putokaz.wordpress.com/2015/02/25/installing-minimal-webmin-on-raspbian/
