Sun Ray Sneaker net

Last weeks fun with BT at least had an upside. I got to test both shillix and Sun Ray removable media support. Using a USB key fob I could copy 64M of data to and from the office with blog entries going in and documentation to the Router going out.

So before you put a USB disk into the USB port on the back of your Sun Ray you run this command:

: enoexec.eu FSS 27 $; utdiskadm -l
cannot access parent directories
Device          Partition       Mount Path
------          ---------       ----------
: enoexec.eu FSS 28 $;

Now insert the drive.

: enoexec.eu FSS 28 $; utdiskadm -l
Device          Partition       Mount Path
------          ---------       ----------
disk2           disk2s2         /tmp/SUNWut/mnt/cg13442/z'l_0_1
disk4           disk4s2
: enoexec.eu FSS 29 $; utmount -m disk4s2
: enoexec.eu FSS 30 $; utdiskadm -l
Device          Partition       Mount Path
------          ---------       ----------
disk2           disk2s2         /tmp/SUNWut/mnt/cg13442/z'l_0_1
disk4           disk4s2         /tmp/SUNWut/mnt/cg13442/noname
: enoexec.eu FSS 31 $; ls -l /tmp/SUNWut/mnt/cg13442/noname
total 485
-rwxrwxrwx   1 cg13442  staff      86351 Dec  3  2001 COMMAND.COM
-rwxrwxrwx   1 cg13442  staff      46610 Jan 14  2003 FDISK.EXE
-rwxrwxrwx   1 cg13442  staff      14785 Jan 14  2003 FORMAT.EXE
-rwxrwxrwx   1 cg13442  staff      42107 Aug 26  2002 KERNEL.SYS
-rwxrwxrwx   1 cg13442  staff      57344 Dec 27  2002 Password.exe
: enoexec.eu FSS 32 $; utdiskadm -u /tmp/SUNWut/mnt/cg13442/noname
: enoexec.eu FSS 33 $;

Very cool, well if sneaker net can ever really be cool. Having to manually mount the second drive on the key could just be because we have beta SRSS software on this system. When we upgrade I'll try it again to make sure it works.

Must work out what my bandwidth is when I cycle to work. At only 64Mbytes that would be about 18K/sec if I cand get home in an hour.
