Re: Australia is living in the past!

PiZW is the newest member of the Pi family = Pi Zero Wireless. Search in /var/log/syslog or /var/log/messages for "motion" and see if it started up and behaved correctly. Make sure your local ip is correct. Try it on a machine/phone/tablet other than the pi. Borrow another webcam from someone else a...

pi 3 camera ver 2 not detected

Hi ! I just got a pi camera version 2, for my pi 3 and connected the cable (correctly I think). Connection on the port between the USBs and the HDMI connector. Blue side facing the USB/ethernet port, locked in. Did an update and upgrade, ran raspi-config and enabled the camera, rebooted. I get raspb...

Re: wifi netbooting

Maybe you can get another router, use it as a wireless switch for your main router
and connect the pi wired to it. There are some fairly cheap travel routers.
Not sure about netbooting through it though, but dont see why it would not work.

Re: Raspberry Pi Surveillance

You could setup IP cams in the rooms and have 1 pi with motion connect to all 3.
Not sure if it will be cheaper (or faster) though than a pi in every room.

Or instead of IP cams, you could use old android phones with the
IP Webcam app if you have some of those around.

Re: Shutdown button missing

Do you have a button with a raspberrypi logo on the left end of the panel? It you click that
it opens up a menu with a shutdown button.

Re: Raspberry Pi and Webservers

Yes I have enabled port forwarding and I am just not sure if I am connecting to it properly. For example when using putty, I should use my external IP as host and my port # as 22 and that should connect me to my PI? I'm also trying to do it from within my network so that might not be too bright.......

Re: Raspberry Pi and Webservers

From outside the network no, I am supposed to use my external IP as 'host' and port 22 as my port? You need to enable "port forwarding" (of port 22) on the router to which the PI is connected. This will forward any port 22 access to the router to the internal IP of the PI. This also means that the ...

Re: Raspberry Pi and Webservers

Try "scp" from your remote machine to push the files to the "Pi"s You could write a script containing the "scp" commands to all the different pi s. To make it easier to script, google "scp without password" to not have to use a password. Another way of doing this, might be to run a cronjob on the Pi...

Re: Motion problems

Does just running "sudo motion" from the terminal work? (ie without the -d 9). If that works than the problem is with the daemon setup. What is your target_dir ? Is it in /tmp or in /home/pi. Try setting it something in /tmp. Maybe in daemon mode it cannot write to your target dir. Check the permiss...

Re: VNC splilt personality

Yes "motion" is a app. Usually used for security, but can be used for other purposes as well.
Has some simple configurable motion detection built in, mainly for recording efficiency.

Re: Motion problems

As per your link a log file seems to be in /tmp/motion.log
That might provide some insights.
What do you mean by "stream reboots" ? Does the Pi reboot?

Can you effectively use the 7" display for controlling the printers ? You could just use it for a viewer for the webcam. However if you do want it to mirror the vnc, then x11vnc with auto login is your best bet. You will probably have to figure out auto login anyway, if you dont want a keyboard/mous...

Re: VNC splilt personality

On the pi/linux when you run a vnc(or tightvnc) server you get a separate display, usually denoted by <machine>:1 So the "split" behavior you see is the expected behavior for the pi. Yeah, I know windows does it differently. To get the <machine>:0 which is the display on your LCD monitor, you have t...

VT possibly means in a terminal without X.

Dont type the word "run" in your command.

Re: VNC won't log into my Pi

Have you installed a vncserver or tightvncserver on the pi, and started running it, before you tried
to connect from the Mac?

Is so, you should a log file in ~/.vnc/ which will tell you what might have gone wrong.

Re: Apache reachable locally but not publicly

Do you see anything in the apache access.log and error.log on the pi when you access from outside?

If possible also enable logging on the router and check if you see the transactions from the outside in the router logs.
