As you can see a USB-Hub is attached along with a 2GB USB-Stick. I used it to store my rootfs on external storage . Additionally my 2TB external hard drived is attached to the device so I can access the data per NFS .
These are my firewall  rules:
root@OpenWrt:~# cat /etc/firewall.user # This file is interpreted as shell script. # Put your custom iptables rules here, they will # be executed with each firewall (re-)start. IPT=iptables NET_LAN=192.168.0.0/16 # ssh from outside $IPT -I input -j ACCEPT -i eth0.2 -s xxx -p tcp --dport 22 $IPT -I input -j ACCEPT -i eth0.2 -s xxx -p udp --dport 22 # portmap $IPT -I INPUT -j ACCEPT -i eth0.2 -s $NET_LAN -p tcp --dport 111 $IPT -I INPUT -j ACCEPT -i eth0.2 -s $NET_LAN -p udp --dport 111 # nfsd $IPT -I INPUT -j ACCEPT -i eth0.1 -s $NET_LAN -p tcp --dport 32777:32780 $IPT -I INPUT -j ACCEPT -i eth0.1 -s $NET_LAN -p udp --dport 32777:32780 # minidlna $IPT -I INPUT -j ACCEPT -i eth0.2 -s $NET_LAN -p tcp --dport 8200 $IPT -I INPUT -j ACCEPT -i eth0.2 -s $NET_LAN -p udp --dport 8200
What about speed?
In general you won’t get more than 5.60MB/s. It depends on your drives read/write speed and the connection. In my case I was using WLAN which was slower than normal LAN connectivity. But that’s fine with me.
Awesome device with great features! Check out openwrt.org for more information. The devices price is about 50€ which is a fair one.
