HFP can be installed in a couple of minutes. The configuration script will ask some simple questions, after which a very small chrooted environment will be installed at your CH3HNAS. When your CH3HNAS is booted, the running telnetd and sshd daemons will be killed. Inside the chrooted environment, new services will be started automatically (optionally including either a openssh or a dropbear daemon).

Before you start installing, you should know it’s still beta (as a matter of fact, I’m still waiting for the first user to try it out). So, for the time being, I suggest you only start HFP if a certain file exists (preferable a file at an USB stick) or enable a backdoor dropbear process (or both).

Never remove the folder in which you install HFP without disabling HFP first. If you simply remove the folder, you might end up with an empty CH3HNAS.

1. setup HFP
2. install packages
3. configure HFP
4. upgrade HFP
