||Xkey ISO loading over network
| #36406 posted 2019-05-17 @ 20:02 GMT |
Dear all, |
Following the last topic, I have bought a Usb to Ethernet adapter USB 2.0 to Fast Ethernet as per the supported device list.
I have red 2 posts talking about the possibility to do it, however even if I am close Icould not get itto work,
-I have the message Network OK displayed on the remote.
-The adapter is getting an IP address (Xkey -> About)
-I can use a web browser to get into the Xkey web server
This one is about modifying xkey.cfg to add share username and password but it does not pick the share. My Xkey.cfg is set like this:
#Set WPA OR WEP (not both). If neither is selected XK will expect an open WiFi network
#IF using WPA set your WiFi key
#IF using WEP set your WEP HEX key
#Set IP (optional NETMASK) to use a static IP, if neither XK will use DHCP
#IP=STATIC_IP #ie 184.108.40.206
#NETMASK=STATIS_NETMASK #ie 255.255.255.0
+++++++++++++++++++++++Unique Wifi Dongle Key+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
This one is using the AoE functionality, but not very well described and with reference to http://www.x360keyforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=7221 that is not available any longer.
sudo apt-get install vblade
sudo vblade 0 0 eth0 /dev/YOURDRIVE
Does anyone remember any of this?

That share URL looks like SMB, it will not work. There are no configuration options in xkey.cfg for AoE. You need to connect xk3y directly using Ethernet crossover cable to a computer (PC) nearby.
XK & the PC are USB hosts, you cant plug one into the other, it just won't work
AoE is a bit too slow for normal use, ask the TPs, they had a play with it. If you install a game on your XBox HDD then it would probably be ok. I left it in as a freebie feature for a bit of fun
You can use any supported Ethernet adapter, there's no lock down, you get access to Mr W's web interface as a bonus
I will put a list of supported USB-Ethernet chips together sometime, but basically any common/cheap one should work. Direct, machine-machine Ethernet needs a crossover cable, machine-router/switch/hub uses a normal cable

AoE stands for ATA over Ethernet.
BTW: That list of supported USB-Ethernet chips TheArtificer mentions in the quoted post I covered here.
