Re: Open VPN server

This tutorial helped me get the openvpn server up and running http://raspberrypihelp.net/tutorials/1-openvpn-server-tutorial - the TLS negotiation was from elsewhere, I can't remember where right now but might be here: http://blog.remibergsma.com/2013/01/05/building-an-economical-openvpn-server-usin...

OS Bundle

I'm setting up a download mirror for the OS Images and NOOBS installer. Is there a bundle available which contains all the images that I can periodically check for updates?

Re: RasPi as WiFi Router with authentication

This is something I'm planning to do - have a search for Captive Portal, I believe some people have had success with coovachilli. Somewhere on this forum somebody posted a tutorial based on the raspberry pi.

Re: rpi-update problems

Solved - a couple of reboots and another attempt at rpi-update fixed it. I did manage to corrupt the boot partition again so had to re-copy all the files once more.

I think I have an SD card which is on the way out, it's been running for over a year so possibly should be replaced anyway.

Re: rpi-update problems

FYI - here's the error when attempting to mount the shares, these mounted with no issues before:

mount error: cifs filesystem not supported by the system
mount error(19): No such device
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

SOLVED - rpi-update problems

I decided yesterday to bring my pi up to date as it's not had any applied for some time. It's not particularly busy as it hosts a small website and an OpenVPN server. I did the usual apt-get update apt-get / upgrade which went without a hitch, next a reboot and then a sudo rpi-update which started O...

Re: [Tutorial] PPTP VPN with No-IP

With a little google help I've got a nice openvpn setup on my pi with clients on my iPhone and MacBook connecting nicely. Even with all Internet traffic routed through the pi from my remote devices it copes admirably!

Re: Host monitoring and the Pi - what software?

We currently use Nagios to monitor our servers - not sure how a pi would cope with it but I'll throw it in here as an option?

Check out their website http://www.nagios.org/ - let us know how you get on!

This fix got me round the JSEXEC error:

Alter the make file in /sbbs/src/sbbs3 by adding -lmozjs to the linking instructions for JSEXEC.

Re: BBS running on Raspberry Pi

That's what I ended up doing. I installed libmozjs185-dev and followed the step-by-step installation instruction at http://www.synchro.net/docs/sbbsunix.txt - there were a few other things I had to change along the way but nothing that a little creative googling didn't solve. These are the two main ...

Sorry if this has already been asked but how do you relaunch the initial setup screen that raspbian boots into at first boot?

Re: corporate proxy

Speaking as a network admin I would most definitely agree - talk to your IT dept first before plugging your Pi into the corp network. Although I'm pretty sure that if anybody bought their RPi to my office I would probably confiscate it for some 'testing' first! And yes cake/biscuits(nice ones with c...

Re: BBS running on Raspberry Pi

hmmm - now this is strange.

I've downloaded the new Raspian image and created a new SD card, now using my previously modified libmozjs archive fails once more with the "Your compiler does not follow the C++ specification for temporary object destruction order" error.

Back to the drawing board?

Re: BBS running on Raspberry Pi

Managed to get Synchronet up and running, took a little fiddling about with libmozjs. In the end all I had to do was to replace any references to armv7a with armv6 and it eventually compiled and installed. I did come across some kernel panic errors during the compile process, I think it's down to th...
