Re: 32 or 64 bit?

It's certainly 64-bit (amd64).

You can however install the 32-bit version (i386) if you prefer, which would only make sense if your RAM was very limited.

Re: network share issue

If you want Windows to access a folder in your Linux computer, then you're going to need SMB (samba, in Linux). This is what \\server\folder means in Windows.

If you want something else, then you will need to explain what.

Re: network share issue

@audiolover,

If you want your linux computer ("audiopc") to act as a SMB server, you're going to have configure it.

Check https://wiki.debian.org/Samba/ServerSimple or https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/samba if you want more detail.

Re: timer for sleep at 01:00

@audiolover,

You could set up a cron job (as root), like

00 01 * * * systemctl suspend

This should work (but I haven't tested).
You will need to wake it by hand (or by WOL).

If you need a scheduled wake up, you'll need to use rtcwake.

Re: Can't discover DLNA server

OK, that looks good. Next would be to check the firewall. iptables or nftables? You said you "tackled" the firewall settings.. maybe you could double-check and/or post here whatever effective rules are in place. If nftables, then "nft list ruleset" If iptables, then "iptable...

Re: Telnet on the command line, annoying tab handling

You are aware that you are on the debian forum. WSL is Windows, so any questions regarding the akwardness of Windows console/terminal handling should be directed to them (after all, you are paying for the product).

Re: create email address

You would need to install a mail server configured to accept e-mails for your domains and configure/add the DNS MX record for each of your domains to point to your mail server. However, in view of your very question, I would discourage you to do that yourself, as the chances are high that you will (...

It could be that you (or something) has disabled the wlan interface.

Re: ssh - bypassed passphrase when not filling it

Thank you for your answer ! I now understand better how ssh connection is supposed to work. However, I'm still wondering if it's normal that authentication is considered as failed after less than 3 attempts, as soon as you press enter with an empty passphrase. When you type a wrong passphrase, the ...

Re: ssh - bypassed passphrase when not filling it

When the SSH client tries to authenticate using a public key, it asks you for the passphrase (if one has been set). If that fails, it tries with the next method, i.e. password authentication. If the server allows both (as it was in your case), then it's the expected behaviour. Normally if you set-up...

I have a similar issue, but from what I can tell it's not really OS-dependent..

When that happens, I use a keyboard shortcut (Win-Pause in my case), which runs...
