By having a generated private ssh key and uploading the paired public your $HOME/.ssh/authorized_keys file you can easily log in to your box securely with no password or a pass phrase of your choosing.
There are many guides out there for this already.
For windows putty is a very good ssh client. Here are some guides to generate and use your public key, search google.
If you are using linux you should already know how.
Make a symbolic link to the personal file area to easily copy data in your home directory to Pydio. For example, by using this command:
<username>@omega:~> ln -s $HOME/www/explorer/data/personal/<username> box
There is now a symbolic link named box you can copy any file quickly to which will show up in the Pydio.
For whatever reason, users always want to be able to run a speedtest on their box. Why? I don't know. It shouldn't really matter. But anyway, if you feel so inclined as to run one on your box, here is an extremely easy way to do it via command line, and be able to share an image of the result. Thanks to sivel's speedtest-cli python script. Check out the three easy steps below:
# Download script wget -O speedtest-cli https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sivel/speedtest-cli/master/speedtest.py # Set Permissions chmod +x speedtest-cli # Run test python speedtest-cli --share
If you would like to compare against a geographically close SpeedTest server, you can use these commands to find a local server and run specifically against that server:
# List the servers that match your search (searching for 'MA, United States' for example) python speedtest-cli --list | grep 'MA, United States' # In the list that is output, use the number listed for for one of the servers in this command (2405 for example) python speedtest-cli --share --server 2405
Irssi is a terminal-based IRC client for UNIX systems, and comes pre-installed with all Fusion accounts. These are just some very basic commands to help you get started.
First off, if you ever need to manually configure irssi, the config file is located:
I also recommend (but not necessary) tmux for running irssi, but I don't feel like going into it right now.
First things first, you will need to create a Network with a nick to join it with. That is accomplished by:
# Command /network add -nick [name to join the server with] [network name] # Example /network add -nick Animazing BYSH
Now you need to add a server to that network:
# Command /server add -auto -network [network name] [irc.server.com] // -auto flag makes it auto-connect on startup # Example /server add -auto -network BYSH irc.bytesized-hosting.com
Lastly you just need to add a channel to that server/network to join:
# Command /channel add -auto #[channel] [network name] // -auto flag makes it auto-join on connection # Example /channel add -auto #bytesized BYSH
And now to connect to your newly created network:
# Command /connect [network name] # Example /connect BYSH
Every now and then you might run into some oddities, such as password protected channels or the option for using an SSL port. Here are a few commands to help with that:
# Adding an SSL server /server add -auto -ssl -network [network name] [irc.server.com] [port number] /server add -auto -ssl -network BYSH irc.bytesized-hosting.com 7000 // 7000 being the SSL port # Using a password/key to join a channel /channel add -auto #[channel] [network name] [password] /channel add -auto #bytesized BYSH myl33tpassword
Cleaning up dead symlinks
The following command should clean-up symlinks to dead files.
find -L ~/media/ -type l -delete
Updating a symlink
ln -f -s ./torrents/data/folder/file ./media/Movies/folder/file
Find the status of a link

Move torrents from Deluge to Rtorrent
If you want to move torrents from Deluge to Rtorrent for long term seeding, you can try to follow the below steps:
1- Find where .torrent files are stored for Deluge: ~/.config/deluge/state; 2- Find through the hash for the torrent in Deluge the respective .torrent file; (Click on the torrent and check Hash under Details running the Thin Client) 3- Configure a new watch folder for rtorrent in ~/.config/rtorrent/rtorrent.rc; (Needs to be done only once. schedule = watch_directory,5,5,load_start="~/torrents/rtorrent-watch/*.torrent" as an example ). 4- Create the new watch dir; 5- Pause the torrent in Deluge; 6- Move the .torrent file to the new rtorrent watch folder; 7- Remove the torrent in Deluge (NO DATA); 8- In the meantime Rtorrent will have picked it up and started checking the new torrent.
Changing your passwords
We don’t have any means to automate the changing of passwords yet but there are some commands you can use through VNC or SSH to change them.
vncpasswd → This changes your VNC password
passwd → This changes both your SSH and FTP password
Your deluge password can be changed via the web-interface.
Warning - If you change your passwords we cannot access your account and then we cannot help you efficiently.
Note: I know this is a pretty manual way to do it, and probably not the "cleanest", but it was the only way I could figure it out on my own. Feel free to replace this instruction if you have more details or more knowledge! :)
