Re: Connecting to a Pi behind a mobile hotspot or restricted VLAN?

Yes. Your Pi connects to a machine on the Internet, and forwards its local ssh port to the bastion, which allows you to then connect back in again. Sounds interesting! Any companion links available that covers this concept in more detail, i.e. connecting out and then being able to connect back in a...

Re: Connecting to a Pi behind a mobile hotspot or restricted VLAN?

What does bastionhost mean?

Is that an outgoing connection from the pi to another host? I need to transfer files from any PC in the direction of the Pi.

Connecting to a Pi behind a mobile hotspot or restricted VLAN?

How to connect to a Pi from anywhere when I have no control over the router/firewall and just able to browse Internet sites through port 80 and 443? If I try to connect to the Pi using SSH via private/public IP on port 443 then it simply times out because the router/firewall does not allow either IP...

Re: History of Linux on ARM?

There were many ARM based computers from the late 1980s onward. Why do you think Linux is restricted to SBCs? I can understand the Linux kernel being used in electrical devices - but surely distros were developed more for personal computing with a desktop environment, etc? Intel PCs would have been...

Re: History of Linux on ARM?

Sure - but I'm trying to understand why Debian released Linux for ARM in 2000/2002 since this predates the first single board computer from about 2008 (BeagleBoard) if I'm not mistaken? Why were there ARM Linux distros available throughout the noughties? And for what devices?
