Re: FTP Server

You could just set up your Pi with a static IP address and run vsftpd. The Ubuntu Server Guide has a good tutorial on how to set up vsftpd. Even though it's for Ubuntu, it will still work with Raspbian. For setting up a static IP, just google "raspberry pi static ip". As far as using external storag...

Re: File hosting/sharing website

Check out OwnCloud. There are a couple of good resources available for getting it running on a Raspberry Pi. Just Google "raspberry pi owncloud".

Re: File sharing from pi to windows

If you already have SSH set up, you can transfer via SFTP. From your Windows desktop, just open up a program that supports SFTP like FileZilla or WinSCP, and connect to your Pi over Port 22 (not port 21 like FTP) with your user credentials.

Re: RPi as Netwok logger ?!

is there a way to log the traffic into rsyslog? because the router is logging it... Yes, if you already have configured DD-WRT to log router traffic, you won't need to bother with configuring the Pi as a proxy. Instead, you can set up the Pi to be a rsyslog server and point the DD-WRT logs to the P...

Re: Looking for: Open source Sync program

rsync -va /source/folder user@remotemachine:/destination/folder Rsync was definitely going to be one of my suggestions, but if you can't access the Pi from outside the LAN, then it's not going to be as simple as that. What you can do is use your VPS as an intermediary server, since you you should b...

Re: Looking for: Open source Sync program

Works behind a router which I don't have access (no port redirection) and with variable IP [see Note]
Can you access the Pi in any way (i.e. SSH?) from outside of the LAN?

Re: RPi as Netwok logger ?!

There are a couple of more ways you could do this:
  • tcpdump
  • Network proxy (e.g. Squid, Privoxy) - you can set this up to either just log all network traffic, or block inappropriate sites
  • Snort - can be configured to either sniff or log network packets

Re: Writing a file from RPi to network storage

How frequently are you looking to copy files over? If you are looking to do it on an ongoing basis, I would recommend setting up an NFS share on your Ubuntu machine, and then mount it on the Pi. You can either manually copy the file to the NFS share, or set up a cron job to do it. The Ubuntu Server ...

Re: How to access Pi with filezilla?

Have you installed an FTP server? If you have not, and if the Pi is running Raspbian, the Ubuntu Server Guide has a really good tutorial on how to install an FTP server (even though it is for Ubuntu, it will be the same steps for Raspbian). However, I would note that FTP is an inherently insecure pr...

Re: security issue - kernel for router

This article on ArsTechnica does a very good job of explaining how Raspbian was built and is currently maintained. It explains that packages are automatically downloaded from Debian mirrors and rebuilt for the Pi, so packages from Raspbian can be trusted just as much as the Debian packages. Any secu...

Yes, it should get sftp working again, and no, you shouldn't need to configure anything. However, depending on how you removed OpenSSH, this might not be the case.

Re: Raspberry pi DHCP server

Not sure if this is it, but it looks like "Address" is missing a "d" in the declaration for wlan0 in your /etc/network/interfaces file. Try fixing that and then issue the following command:

Code: Select all

sudo service networking restart
Then run

Code: Select all

sudo ifconfig -a
to see if wlan0 has gotten an address yet.
