The Fritz! As a penny!Filed under: Other;
There were times when I ran in x-units for all kinds of “computer functions” to realize in the apartment. At today's electricity prices and a significantly “greener” thinking, which for me is not really portable. The domestic IT should be as energy efficient as possible. Done by one unit, to – so I try all sorts of devices and functions – if possible.At the same time is just in the area of Internet telephony to hold something more comfort catchment. Even if there are practical programs such as Ekiga and Co. for its existence. Easy to pick up the phone and make phone calls, is still the most viable solution.
Demands of the technology are quite comprehensive. All functions such as Internet telephony, file sharing, media servers should – if possible – to work directly with Linux. Unfortunately, there is generally not a lot of products that fulfill all these functions in one device, it actually leaves only the Fritz! Boxes left over from AVM.
For a test I've chosen for the current flagship of the FRITZ! Box Fon WLAN 7390th In order to save the cable modem can also actually be the FRITZ! Box 6360 Cable clever, but that would make a return to the DSL router without an exchange impossible. So I think I prefer this option open and use the 7390er. The following tasks must be overcome
Internet: Cable News on BW, current cable modem is in use.Telephony: Logically, the device should be operated with the fixed-line phone. Furthermore, the device also should beherschen Internet telephony, as I pretty much call abroad and also at a local phone number sipgate.de have, which is independent of my current phone provider.Approvals: The network should be independent of my computers as a network share certain data are available. I can access from all computers on my LAN from the Internet and also to my data, without the fat that I must reboot the system.Multimedia: multimedia data such as music and movies are now transmitted not only through the “traditional” Samba or NFS protocols, but the media server. While I have no TV with a built-in streaming client, but Rhythmbox and Co. can actually start something with this protocol.
Over the next days and weeks I will therefore involve a series of posts around the Fritz! and Linux. Besides the basic functions, there are indeed connected with the FRITZ! App for Android and the modified firmware Freetz interesting things that tickle the little box still some value.
