Re: A Question - Does IoT 'phone home'

Well one thing is for certain, don't tick the 'Application Insights' check box when creating a solution or, for sure, your app is going to phone home big time! Mind you, that's exactly what you asked it to do if you did! This is a good place to start. I installed Visual Studio 2015 Community on Win...

Re: A Question - Does IoT 'phone home'

...Do you have any EVIDENCE for your claim or is it just wild speculation?... Articles such as this (presented as somewhat represenative not as an ultimate authority) suggest there are a number of avenues of data transmission and as this article suggests, some seem somewhat "normal" while some seem...

Re: A Question - Does IoT 'phone home'

Visual Studio "phones home" to Microsoft when you log in to it with your Live account. It does that every time. Not only when you connect to Windows IoT on the Pi to deploy your application. So yes, it does. Always... This is closer to why I asked. But my understanding is that Windows 10 actually s...

That's actually what my question is. When you connect to the Raspberry Pi running Windows IOT with your Windows 10 Desktop, is Microsoft receiving information about it?

A Question - Does IoT 'phone home'

Windows 10 sends information to Microsoft.

Is the fact that one is connecting to Windows 10 IOT on the Raspberry Pi being sent to Microsoft every time one does so?

Re: FreeVMS

Hi, I wanted to install OpenVms on my raspberry Pi but it is very difficult to download an .iso image of OpenVms and to get a licence number. I saw there is a free implementation of this OS : http://www.freevms.net/?lang=en I would to know if it is possible to install FreeVms on RPi ? Thx. Yeah, yo...

Windows 10 IoT

I have Ras Pis B, B+, and 2. Although mostly using Raspbian I have tried Plan 9 ( :( ), FreeBSD ( :( -not the most current offering), and Slack Arm (hmmm, it works...). For Raspbian I have full installs and a couple of minimal installs which are great if that is all that is needed. So I put the Wind...

Re: ttyUSB Question

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=4-port+USB+serial+card ;-) (although surprisingly it looks like buying multiple individual USB-serial cables would be cheaper!) I'm not sure there were USB to serial choices when that was set up. The original was a used ISA Digiboard and when that died it was replaced with...

Re: ttyUSB Question

Thank you for a very informative post, jojopi. I saw both the dialout and tty groups on the two serial connections. Since I fooled around with an old modem and wvdial I though the "dialout" group might be something I had caused. The "dialout" group is on the free connection. I did notice the line th...

Actually the whole point is that the OP wrote: However I want to be able to easily use the serial connections with a chmod 777 and not have to always enter that command. It is only the permissions that need changing. Other than that there is nothing wrong with the files that are created when the de...

Re: ttyUSB Question

A udev rule would be one way of doing this, but they can be tricky to work out - very confusing the first time you try it... Okay, so something like this . $ cat 99-local.rules # # Locally defined rules. # # # Give world read/write access to ttyS* and ttyUSB* serial devices # KERNEL=="tty[A-Z]*", G...

ttyUSB Question

I have a USB to dual serial cable for my Pi. Both /dev/ttyUSB0 and /dev/ttyUSB1 are created IF the device is plugged in. However I want to be able to easily use the serial connections with a chmod 777 and not have to always enter that command. I have attempted to do a mknod /dev/ttyUSB0 c 188 0 mkno...
