Amazing applications of Raspberry Pi, Part-2
Convert your Raspberry Pi into a NAS box
Part 1 explained how to use your Raspberry Pi as media center. Now support that media center by converting another Pi device into NAS box. Raspberry Pi is constructed using samba server software so this NAS box can’t help you to stream HD videos. Pi NAS can be your low power NAS which supports your media center effectively.
To start with this project, you need –
· Model B of Raspberry Pi
· A SD card with bootable OS on it
· A hard disk drive with USB connectivity
· Ethernet connections which connects this device with your home network
You need to configure Samba server on your Pi device and Samba client on your computer.
This works with Linux, Android, Windows and MAC.
