Where can I download or get the msdosfs command
Hardware Posted by Maria on Wednesday October 01, @04:50PM
from the dept.
I need to mount an USB storage on FreeBSD 4.11 release. I had read some topics about it and they mention the command msdosfs. But I don't have this command in my FreeBSD, so, where can I download it? and then, what I have to do to install it? I don't know very well this operating system. Thanks a lot Maria Beatriz

Reformat a USB, FAT32 harddrive to UFS?
Hardware Posted by Dave Abouav on Saturday July 07, @09:33AM
from the help-me dept dept.

In short, I'd like to take a store-bought USB harddrive (FAT32 by default) and make it a UFS drive. What are the steps I need to take to do this?

I guess I may be behind the curve on this one because it went unnoticed on my BSD radar. I'm talking about PC-BSD!

HOWTO: Create RAID1 on FreeBSD with gmirror
Hardware Posted by Jason on Monday April 02, @03:21PM
from the The Dept of redundancy dept... dept.
With the low cost of hard drives these days, and easy to use programs like gmirror, there's no reason not to protect the data on you're FreeBSD system with RAID. In this post I explain how to setup a simple, software based, RAID1 fault tolerant system with FreeBSD-6.2 and the gmirror utility. It's dead simple by the way.

FreeNAS is a cool FreebSD based NAS solution!
Announcements Posted by Jason on Friday March 30, @12:22PM
from the dept.
Here's an opensource Network Attached Storage (NAS) solution that is built on FreeBSD. It's feature rich and works well in its 0.68 state so I fully expect it to get a whole lot better as it approches a 1.0 release!

NFS server & client in FreeBSD
Networking and Connectivity Posted by Eliena Andrews on Wednesday March 14, @01:25AM
from the dept.
NFS refers to Network File System and as the name suggests allows any system to share a filesystem over the network.

NFS server configuration

NFS server is the system that allows other systems to mount it's filesystem as their own. The main daemons that need to be running are nfsd, mountd and rpcbind. Nfsd daemon services request from the clients and passes the requests to the mountd daemon. Mountd carries out the requests from nfsd. Rpcbind allows nfs clients to identify the ports that any RPC based service is running

TIP:fsck -y remotely
Miscellaneous Posted by Understudy on Monday December 18, @07:39PM
from the salvage block dept.
When dealing with a remote server that has gone through a hard shutdown and bgfsck isn't going to be able to deal with all the issues. You can setup fsck on bootup. Grab your editor and let's go.

Quick Links

Here is small list of FreeBSD sites that I have found useful.

The FreeBSD Diary is my favorite FreeBSD website and inspired me to create this site. You can find information on just about any topic and the site is fully searchable.

If you're new to FreeBSD and you've not checked out the FreeBSD Handbook, I would do so now.

Daemon News has been writing articles on BSD since 1998. The content of topics range from newbie to expert. They also have the distinction of publishing the first printed BSD magazine.

Defcon1 is a newbie friendly site that provides monthly articles on FreeBSD related topics.

To find News Articles related to BSD, checkout Slashdot BSD or BSD Today.

If you are a Dutch speaking BSD user, you may wish to visit the BSD Freaks website in the Netherlands.

You can also post your questions at FreeBSD forums.
