Re: Monkey HTTP webserver

Alright here is my feedback, 1) I move your .deb file over to my RPI then attempted to install with both dpkg -i as well as gdebi but to no avail 2) The error i'm getting is, so far, a need for a more recent version of libc6, I only have 2.13-37+rpi1 not 2.15 3) Sofar I'm unable to get to the requir...

Hey hope everyone is doing well. I can't figure out how to have my Lighttpd server tell me how many page visits I get per week. My current setup on the RaspberryPi is Raspbian “wheezy” OS, with Lighttpd, conntected to the internet with no-ip.com(Provide a free domain name for my changing IP address)...

Monkey HTTP webserver

Hi! I searched the web and could not find any tutorials about how to install Monkey HTTP on the Raspberrypi. It would be great if I could get a guide becuase using sudo apt-get install monkey is not sufficient. I'm currently running with lightpd and it is great but I hear that Monkey is faster. Thanks

Re: Raspbian SD flashing error

If two applications are using the same file, shouldn't you get the error "the file is in use", not "permission denied"? Oh and Windows by default is installed on on the c drive, so the software might want to protect sensitive system info by refusing to write to that drive letter. Change the drive le...

Re: Java basic & Libraries

I'm practising loops, methods, classes, variable, arrays which are all standard to Java, no matter what device I use right?. I guess that the purpose of using a libraries is to communicate with other hardware, like you said "in the physical world".

Java basic & Libraries

Hey hope everyone is doing well, so I installed java JDK on Soft-float Debian “wheezy”, it works great for what I’m learning now. If I’m sticking to the basics, should I install any libraries?

Thanks!

Re: Wifi and wpa_supplicant

I know it can be educational and help you learn how to set-up the wifi dongle by editing the networking files on the Pi. Once you figure everything out, I highly suggest using seeing if MrEngman automatic setup script will do the trick.

Re: Raspbian SD flashing error

Make sure that the card itself is not set to lock, that's because when set to lock it you can not write (hence the permission denied)

Check out the .png example.

Re: Networking

You do not need a router, but it helps because logging into your router administration page will tell you the internet protocol address of you raspberrypi under ...

Re: tight vnc outside local network

You my friend are right! I remember now why I changed da' default SSH port, because originally I was using a password handshake! Now I use keys (RSA-2) instead so I should not have switch to some "secret" port.

Everything is tested and working A+ on Raspbian Soft-Float, thanks folks

Re: tight vnc outside local network

I understand it is a bad idea to use vnc over the internet because of snooping and viruses. Since my situation is using "tight vnc portable" on a pendrive, using the command line is not possible. When you say only open port 22, that is for SFTP correct? Becuase, I changed my default SFTP port and op...

Re: tight vnc outside local network

Okey thanks for the reply, is there anyway to configure tight vnc server to be like an ssh server. I mean to you can switch of password authentication and only allow SSH keys(rsa-2)? Would I need another piece of software instead that can do this automation for me?
