Re: WLAN MAC address changes at every reboot?

I got to the bottom of the problem. My installation, (and I think, buster by default) had network-manager installed. Network-manager gets the IP address instead of dhcpcd and network-manager can be set to randomise the MAC address when it boots. This is a security “feature”, but it obviously screws ...

Re: WLAN MAC address changes at every reboot?

The last time I recall this being discussed it was traced to HASSIO being installed on top of Raspbian, and Hassio in turn installs Network Manager which was thought to be the cause of the non-standard behaviour. Now that is interesting. Previously, this node was running hassos/hassio. The reason f...

Re: WLAN MAC address changes at every reboot?

Has there been any update on this issue? I've recently rebuilt a Pi 3B+ that was previously working fine. It's running stock stretch with all updates applied and with no additions at the moment and is suffering exactly the same behaviour. Everything starts as expected: Nov 3 10:15:33 docker4 systemd...

Re: Installing the new VNC Connect on a headless Pi

A couple of points: 1. By default, the server starts in daemon mode and you can't connect to the server using an IP if the server is running in daemon mode unless you have gone through the licensing step. 2. As a workaround, if you start the server in service mode, you can connect using an IP addres...

Re: Installing the new VNC Connect on a headless Pi

Update The advice from RealVNC was to disable the vnc server daemon and run the server in service mode by running 'vncserver' at an ssh command prompt. I could now log in, but I couldn't license the server with the cloud (VNC Connect requires licenses. As a special deal, the Pi version includes a li...

Installing the new VNC Connect on a headless Pi [obsolete]

RealVNC have announced a new product: VNC Connect. It mimics what teamViewer does by having a cloud element so you can securely remote in to a Pi from outside the firewall without opening ports. I had a go at installing it this morning and hit a problem. You need to register the vnc server with the ...
