    My router is set to dump some stats from iptables every 5 mins to a cifs share on my laptap. These stats are the used to create a page showing per user bandwidth usage.

    It all works well so long as the CIFS share is accessible, the problem being that I cant leave my laptop on all day, nor do i have any other computer with which I could.

    I dont want to use the routers NVRAM or JFFS because of the frequency of the writes. What are the alternatives? Are there any online storage solutions I can add as a share for the router? Come to think of it, just writing this has given me the thought of ftp maybe? will this work?

    I faced this problem when I first started looking after remote Tomato networks.
    The only control I had over a persistent listener was a web site, with access to the error logs.

    That was all I needed. :)

    (Some years ago, when Usenet posts might take several days to propgate fully, and perhaps not much longer to expire, I suggested that one might back up one's system by posting it on Usenet. In case of loss, one might have to wait a couple of days for it to propagate back. There's a "cloud" application for you. :))
