I'm looking for a solution to make 2''5 USB Drives networking-able.
For server backup we prefer 2 USB Drives which 'll be changed every day.
Terminating USB direct to Servers USB Port is quite tricky cause drive letter can be changed, so backup-software on server might have a problem.
Terminating USB2Ethernet Converter (i.g. Lindy USB over IP Server No. 42890) doesn't work because running linux can only FAT32 FileFormat. (uh... 4 GB Files ...)
Other Solution (USB2Ethernet) use EXT-x and can't read 'n' write NTFS volumes also.
So we thing about an embedded Linux:
2 X USB 2.0
1 x Ethernet 10/100 MB or 1.000 MB
Reading, Writing NTFS Volumes (mentioned USB Drives)
Flash device to configure 'n' upload linux
a web server to configure main data as ip adress, mask, dns ... and alert messages via port 80 or smtp
a syslog device to log data to TFTP server, nagios
