Sharing help for AZBox questions? - 30-May-2009, 22:29

Firstly, I'm not one of these newbie's who joins a forum then waltzes in and asks the most basic question's without searching, I have read tons on this forum but it seems that the AZBox is a little different so I'm having a rather steep learning curve.

Basically I have 2 AZBoxes, an Elite and Premium (will probaly have a third as soon as all my sharing issues are sorted) and have 3 cards that I want to share locally 2 x Sly N*D*S and a Viaccess, I know that all the AZBox sharing software at the moment is in it's infancy and I probably should just wait until there is some really good software out there but I'm really curious and would like to take a crack at it now.

At the moment it looks like the best option for me would be to set up a CCCam Linux server and serve the 3 cards to my two AZBoxes and have read some excellent tutorials on this site about doing that, does that sound like the way to go?

Sorry about such basic questions and I don't expect (or want) somebody to hold my hand, I just need a nudge in the right direction! Thanks for taking the time to read this! And any and all help is greatly appreciated

I suggest you to build Linux CCcam server and serve your Azboxes with him. Even if you have DM recivers i will recommend you linux server option.
Here is link to tutorial How to build Debian linux server with CCcam
As you know Azbox have only CCcam in client mode (for now).
And here is some nice collection of CCcam tutorials

First of all: Thanks for creating this Azbox HD section!
This receiver deserves it.

CCcam works as described in this very early pre-release 0.2.
But unfortunately not for all cards, in a few weeks I expect (just a guess) to have a more workable solution.

In the mean time you have plenty of time to set up a server.
This is indeed a good tip, depending on your Linux/PC skills its fairly easy.

or you take the other way that works allready and is from the same guy who wrote the ccc for this receiver, M-box or mbox with newcs.
Bit complicated but works like a dream once it runs

Give it a try it isnt realy as difficult

I started to do this today but the link with the Debian Linux Server seems to be dead on the first page so I went to Debian.org to look for another but I'm not 100% which to start with, any suggestions?

There are enough mirrors for debian, this tutorial works also very good with Ubuntu (server edition).

The list of Debian install Cds/DVDs:
http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/5.0.1/i386/iso-cd/
http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/5.0.1/i386/iso-dvd/

This one is the network install Cd, minimal startup.
Only requirement is a working ethernet link after booting:
http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/...86-netinst.iso

Ok, thanks everybody for the help so far, have spent the last 3 days trying to get everything up and running and apart from the misfortune of having a hard drive with bad sectors and a stick of RAM fail on me I seem to be progressing nicely (although if I started again I'd probably be at this stage in 2 hours!).

Anyway I now have a server with Debian 5.0 and CCcam 2.0.11 running with a Smargo attached and being recognised, the Smargo is set @ 6.0MHz. I have CCcam prerelease 2 installed on my AZBox and am pretty confident my C and F lines are almost right, as I have my server and client connected to the same router I'm wondering what my Port number should be in my C line?

And is there any point installing a CCCam info program on my PC to be 100% my server is working correctly? Thanks again!

For right config of CCcam plugin for Azbox you must put local IP address of your server. Lets say that your serever have IP - 192.168.1.8 and your CCcam listen port is 12000, CCcam.cfg must look like:
Quote:
C: 192.168.1.8 12000 user azbox
You also must create F line in your server F: user azbox 3 0 0 { 0:0:3 }

OK, I'm at the troubleshooting stage now and there has been a lot of headscratching, I have read so many posts and tutorials but it would be really helpful if I could find out:
How to check that CCcam is running by Telnet?

I did enter DEBUG : yes in my config file but where am I supposed to find the output?

Also, should my LOG folder in my Server be empty? That doesn't seem right...

Arrgh, I hate being a newbie!!

I'm not sure if we are talking about Debian or AzBox, but here goes...

ps from the telnet server prompt doesn't show some CCcam process?

Debug has to be running on the Linux box, as well. It records the CCcam debug output. Try telnet > server prompt > type "which syslogd", without quotes. If you get a location answer, you have the daemon name right. Type "./syslogd -O /hdd/log/log.log", again without quotes. Then you should see log.log in your log folder.

Seems fine if the syslog daemon has never been started.

Here are specific instructions for Syslog on a Debian Server. AzBoz is fairly silent about just about everything... It took me half an hour to figure out how to open their PDF user manual. :(
