PA-200 USB port

Hello,

So have any of you found any cool uses of the USB port on the PA-200?

I myself have connected my Raspberry Pi to it. The PA-200 gives more than enough power and I have also connected a wireless usb adapter to the raspberry.

The raspberry serves as my internal dns and dhcp server at home. I could also use the wireless usb adapter for setting up an AP or using it as an wireless sniffer.

I was a bit surprised yesterday when upgrading the PA-200 to 5.0.3.
I did think that the raspberry would loose the power from the USB port when the PA was rebooted. But it did not :-)

For those of you that don't know what a raspberry pi is look at this link.

Same here, a Raspberry Pi whenever I need some testing done internally, or smartphone charging... (as recommended by my PAN SE ^^)
