About this deal

Of course I had to mount it very properly and totally safe with fitting spacer adapter nuts and Kapton tape like every high-grade engineer would do. He will do a review on the Orange Pi R1 which might be a good choice if you do not need either that much processing power, memory and network throughput or do not want to spent that much money. My plan was to create a Yocto BSP layer for this, but since the Armbian support is not ready yet I’ve decided to do a benchmark and a comparison between the R4S and the R2S. It seems like the microSD card was split into something like nine-ish partitions (could not remember and have not interest in testing this again) where most of them were inaccessible. The Nanopi-R4S’s case is very compact and it’s only a bit bigger than its predecessor Nanopi-R2S, but also includes more horse power under the hood.

the root user account is disabled by default, you may configure the root password through the 'sudo passwd root' command. Very often the user-land work associated with networking is much more expensive than the driver counter-part, and it’s not uncommon to see better performance by binding the application to the big cores and the network layer to thelittle ones. I manage to get some garbage in minicom or cutecom after connecting, but can’t seem to get a login prompt.NanoPi R4S is a high-end Friendly Elec mini-router with edge-computing and dual Gbps Ethernet ports. I then configured a SAMBA share in LuCi and the command line, to transfer files from my laptop to the USB drive connected to NanoPi R4S. As you can see the CPU usage is ~35%, but most of the load is because of

sd-fuse" is a collection of scripts that can be used to create bootable SD card images for FriendlyElec boards. To remove the ISP box, I need WAN side VLAN tagged packets, kind of DHCP specific config, 6to4 tunnelling for ipv4 traffic, etc, the r4s will handle that on wan side. After compilation is done a new image file will be generated in the "rockdev/Image-nanopc_t4/" directory under Android7's source code directory. You may need to prise it out gently from the USB ports side if the heatsink pad sticks the board to the case.Well, starting at the beginning – the package arrived here in lockdown Southern Spain this morning in a large Fedex envelope, clearly marked PCB Board (Material: Metal and Plastic; Use: data storage). Read more about the condition New: A brand-new, unused, unopened and undamaged item in original retail packaging (where packaging is applicable). Within the package was another package and within that, a cardboard box within which was the cased R4S and a 16GB Sandisk Edge MicroSD which I’m hoping contains the OpenWrt image ready to go. As far as I know raspberyy pi4b's achieve gigabit shaping with mostly large MTU-sized packets, not sure what their actual packet per second limit is, but for most normal use cases this is somewhat moot, but it would be interesting to tests as likely the same PPS-limit would apply for 2.

I’ve tried first to leave it idle for 10 mins, then only test the WAN and then the bridged network (WAN+LAN 1Gbps). By the way I strongly suggest to follow Thomas around wherever he leaves comments like on cnx-software. Actually I like DT, especially the ability to name nodes and point to them from node properties, so I made similar config format for myself and happily use it to describe arbitrary graphs in configuration files.

From our impression, FriendlyElec invests highly in manufacturing a superb all-metal case that fits perfectly with the Nanopi R4S board and also has a great modern external design. The NanoPi R4S Enterprise version has a globally unique MAC address which is by default allocated to the CPU's internal Ethernet (rtl8211e) and the name of the device is eth0.
