I'm still trying to figure out exactly what you're trying to accomplish?

Are you setting up a Cloud strictly for your personal use or are you trying to set something up for anyone to access your Cloud structure?

If it's for yourself... you might just consider something like 'zoho' they provide a lot of powerful applications and they are very reliable and of course, they are FREE (up to a certain size-limit). Here again, I don't know what your goal is?

David, I have been using HostGator for a couple of years and their support and prices are fantastic.

My personal cloud would be primarily ... for personal use.

I would pass-thru visitors to documents, images, etc. I have created (or found and wish to share) - but they'd be hosted elsewhere.

I generally would not provide access to most of the site nor to most of the hosted applications - and then probably only via a sign-in process to control access and resource usage.

Zoho looks like a neat resource for project-oriented tasks where one may purchase cloud-hosted apps & resources for a purpose - and pay for each user/app as-needed.

Hostgator looks appealing ... although I am concerned that they market "Instantly Install over 75 open source scripts with QuickInstall!" ... but I cannot find the list of 75 so as to determine if they have what I need, e.g. is LibreOffice on the list?

Also, will they add an app if one requests e.g. a severe weather app or Ham radio apps or MythTV or ??

Thanks!

Hi Smokey01

Since you are familiar with HostGator, possibly you could better answer edoc's questions as to what exactly they can provide him? I realize he is asking about GoDaddy but I am not familiar with their offerings... if someone else is, please feel free to jump in here!

Myself, if I were going to try out a new website idea, I would do it on one of the FREE hosting services 'first' and if it went well, then consider the 'pay for' type instead of going for a long-term commitment from the git-go! There are very good and reliable FREE hosting services out there... http://www.000webhost.com/ is one I have used but I don't know if a FREE hosting service will provide what you need up front? gotta do some research there!

I'd only be interested if I could execute on the server of my choice - definitely nothing google and probably not dropbox.

Interesting concept to boot Puppy on a cloud server and then be able to load and run any app that may normally be run under Puppy.

I wonder if HostGator could allow this?

I wonder how well this would work over a bandwidth of 8 or 12 using a home "cloud" server?

David, why not ask HostGator if they can do what you want.

I like the unlimited bandwidth and storage space.

They do let you run PHP script and SSH.

As I said earlier I'm very impressed with them.

I started the process to set up an account and post a question on their forum.

The delay for approval to post can take as long as 24 hours.

It is weird that they don't list the scripts anywhere.

I am thinking that what I want to do will require a 10x more costly VPS host but perhaps I am misreading ...

When I need help I use live chat and it's pretty much immediate. It might only be available to subscribers though.

There is an enormous amount of help on their site but I haven't delved too deeply into it.

It has just occurred to me that my near-term needs may be simple enough that hanging a computer on the router - loaded with a secure remote app - plus matching apps on my Smartphone and Netbook may meet the current need (mostly LibreOffice Writer).

RemoteDroid and Gmote look promising for the Smartbook, not sure about the Netbook yet.

As for hosting I may move my domains over to Hostgator for greater stability and redundancy to prevent down-time should a machine fail there - vs the mess that was created when my current host had a major hardware failure.

I'm also interested in CloudPuppy as having a tiny app on a USB stick that can tap into Linux resources elsewhere sounds like fun!

WDYT?

Sounds good.

I can give you a neat script that sort of acts like drop box without all the syncing.

In other words, if you want to upload something to the cloud, just drag and drop it onto an icon on your desktop. It can even be configured so the files are sorted into different file types, eg: doc, graphic, music, zip etc etc.

Any fancy manipulation can be done with FileZilla. Just use cloud puppy for the rest, or use your browser to download if you wish.

Works a treat.

Cool!

Now if I can figure out why RemoteDroid on my Android Smartphone and the RemoteDroidServer2 app they provided for my laptop won't talk ... the desktop displays a URL and I enter that on the Android but then a black box displays on the screen.

Should I just use the Secure SSH remote login that is included with Puppy Exprimo instead or do I need some of the features of RemoteDroid?

edoc:

You might want to take a look at this site... it may be what you need without all the developing??? Incidentally, they offer 30GB FREE storage with the FREE account... If you require more, I believe it's like $50.00 a year for 250GB.

I think it's in our Cloud .pet also?

Anyway see what you think.

Subject description: Cloud - Router?
 

This is interesting ... but not sure if setup is possible in Linux ...

Quote:
Linksys EA4500 App-Enabled N900 Dual-Band Wireless-N Router with Gigabit and USB

I use port forwarding to enable the FTP service on my NetGear ReadyNAS device to be accessed from outside of my home network. Port forwarding directs traffic for certain protocols and ports such as FTP to the IP address you've specified on your internal network. Once configured, I can navigate to the IP address Comcast gives my home FTP and the router knows to send that traffic to the ReadyNAS device. The port forwarding nodes are easy to configure, with several common protocols already pre-populated for you so that all you have to do is enable them and enter the IP address for the device in question. However, the EA4500 also offers more advanced configuration by allowing you to name and configure your own ports rather than using their pre-built options.

If you do need to access any part of your network remotely, you will find tremendous advantage to configuring the DDNS feature, unless your ISP happens to assign you a static external IP address, which most do not for residential customers. What that means is your external IP address with your ISP is probably dynamic, or DHCP, and can be changed at any time without notice. Chances are your external IP address will stay the same most of the time even with DHCP, but the chance is still there it will change and it will always happen when you most need to get to something while outside your network. You can register for a DDNS address with several registrars and enter the configuration for your DDNS address in the Linksys router. The Linksys router stays in communication with the registrar and keeps it updated as to what your external IP address is currently. So instead of using your actual IP address, you simply point your web browser, ftp client, etc. to a textual address that you've set up at the DDNS registrar and they redirect that address to whatever your networks current IP is, like magic. I do use this feature, and found it works well in the EA4500.

With a USB port on the back of the router, Linksys has enabled users to attach an external USB hard drive to the EA4500 and share the files and folders on that hard drive with users on your network. You can configure user IDs and passwords within the Advanced Configuration for the router and be as granular or as open with the access as suits your particular needs.

the EA4500 has a marvell chipset which means no dd-wrt

Manufacturer changed to Wistron NeWeb instead of CyberTAN

The processor has the following on it..

MRVL

A1E TW
1151AA
C120

"48RGWM04.0GA" and "Manufactured for CISCO" are silkscreened on the board. The hardware appears to be identical to the Linksys E4200 2.0.
