Re-config Brother HL-2130 sharing after Lenovo EZ firmware update

Follow last post Share Brother HL-2130 through Lenovo Iomega EZ Media & Backup Center USB port.

Recently I update Lenovo EZ firmware, but unfortunately Brother HL-2130 sharing stops working.

After some research, I found that CUPS web page is not configured for external IP address.

By default you are only able to access CUPS admin web interface from localhost by going to https://localhost:631.
But to access this page from another remote machine, you need to first make some edits to the cups conf file. So do the following:

1. Edit the cups configuration file located in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf and make the section that looks like:

    # Only listen for connections from the local machine.
    Listen localhost:631
    Listen /var/run/cups/cups.sock

look like this:

    # Listen on all interfaces
    Port 631
    Listen /var/run/cups/cups.sock

2. Then you need to modify the Apache specific directives to allow connections from everywhere as well. Replace the followin section:

    <Location />
    # Restrict access to the server...
    Order allow,deny
    </Location>
    <Location /admin>
    # Restrict access to the admin pages...
    Order allow,deny
    < /Location>
    <Location /admin/conf>
    AuthType Default
    Require user @SYSTEM
    # Restrict access to the configuration files...
    Order allow,deny
    </Location>

to:

    <Location />
    # Restrict access to the server...
    Order allow,deny
    Allow all
    </Location>
    <Location /admin>
    # Restrict access to the admin pages...
    Order allow,deny
    Allow all
    </Location>
    <Location /admin/conf>
    AuthType Default
    Require user @SYSTEM
    # Restrict access to the configuration files...
    Order allow,deny
    Allow all
    </Location>

3. Restart your cups daemon:

    # /etc/init.d/cupsd restart

4. You should now be able to log into cups on your server with:

https://yourserverip:631

How to get 1080p in Youtube’s HTML5 player in Firefox

Recently, I updated my Firefox browser, and when I was watching Youtube, I couldn’t get 1080p HD anymore. 🙁

I found this article and it solved my issue. Let me remember these steps just in case in future it happened again.

  1. Enter
     about:config

    in your address bar to get to the advanced configuration page. Click “I’ll be careful, I promise” (and actually be careful because you can break all sorts of things in there if you’re not!) to continue.

  2. Search
    "mediasource"

    to see the options you need.

  3. Double-click both “media.mediasource.enabled” and “media.mediasource.webm.enabled” in order to change their value to “true”.

SIMD high performace xorcpy in C

In my current project I need a high performace xorcpy implemented in C. Here is my implementation to share and it is tested on my Xeon E5-2680 PC, it reaches almost 1.7GB/s.

#include <emmintrin.h>
...
__forceinline unsigned char* xorcpy(unsigned char* dst, const unsigned char* src, unsigned block_size)
{
    // Do the bulk of the copy a __m128i at a time, for faster speed
    __m128i* mto = (__m128i*)dst;
    const __m128i* mfrom = (__m128i*)(src);
    for(int i=(block_size / sizeof(__m128i) - 1); i>=0; i--)
    {
        __m128i xmm1 = _mm_loadu_si128(mto);
        __m128i xmm2 = _mm_loadu_si128(mfrom);

        xmm1 = _mm_xor_si128(xmm1, xmm2);     //  XOR 16 bytes
        _mm_storeu_si128(mto, xmm1);
        ++mto;
        ++mfrom;
    }

    // The rest bytes we have to do a byte a time though
    unsigned char* cto = (unsigned char*) mto;
    const unsigned char* cfrom = (const unsigned char*)mfrom;
    for(int i=(block_size % sizeof(__m128i)) - 1; i>=0; i--)
    {
        *cto++ ^= (*cfrom++);
    }
    return dst;
}

Share Brother HL-2130 through Lenovo Iomega EZ Media & Backup Center USB port

Recently I bought a Lenovo® EZ Media and Backup Center to share video and photos within my home network. I also have a Brother HL-2130 Mono Laser long time back which is connected to my PC USB port. Every time, when I want to print something, I have to keep my PC on. I am thinking is there a way to connect my Brother HL-2130 Mono Laser to Lenovo® EZ Media and Backup Center USB port, and sharing HL-2130 within my home network. I can print from any devices even from my iPad, Andaroid phone.

After few hours trying, I finally successfully share HL-2130 through Lenovo NAS USB port. This is the post I found from internet, and it gives the detailed steps.

http://forum.nas-central.org/viewtopic.php?f=279&t=8679

Here are the steps I followed to install HL-2130:

  1. In PC’s browser, go to http://lenovoez/manage/login.html?pg=/manage/diagnostics.html. Enable SSH login (default password: soho+[password]
  2. Download putty, and login your Lenovo NAS through SSH
  3. Connect HL-2130 to Lenovo NAS USB Port
  4. Issue command “/etc/init.d/cups start” to start CUPS service
  5. In PC’s browser, go to http://lenovoez:631/admin
  6. Click “Add Printer” and find Brother_HL-2130_series printer from local printers.
  7. In “Printers” tab, you will find Brother_HL-2130_series. Actually, the address for HL-2130 is http://lenovoez:631/printers/Brother_HL-2130_series
  8. Download latest HL-2130 Windows OS printer driver from http://support.brother.com/g/b/downloadtop.aspx?c=us_ot&lang=en&prod=hl2130_all
  9. Go back to PC, and Add new printer, give the printer address http://lenovoez:631/printers/Brother_HL-2130_series
  10. Click “Have a disk” and install HL-2130 printer driver.
  11. Follow the steps in the post to make cups to run every time the box reloads.
