Re: Remote Connections, VPNs and Proxies

Hello all,

I've set up my Pi by remote. I am successfully SSHing to it via puTTY.
Now I want to re-direct all my local web traffic through the remote Pi. I've just installed tinyproxy. What do I do next and how can I use tinyproxy through puTTy?

Re: NOOBS v1.3.7 Installation Error

Hello all, Just to let you know that it was the Pi that was at fault. My second successive Pi purchased from CPC that resulted in the same hardware problem - a faulty SD card reader. I purchased one in December which had the same problem. CPC replaced it, but with one from the same batch (early 2013...

Re: NOOBS v1.3.7 Installation Error

Hi, I tried the SD Card Formatter v4 (I always keep a portable USB copy of it handy). Still no luck. I tried all 3 format options (Quick, Format (erase), Format (overwrite), with and without size adjustment enabled. When the card is freshly formatted, it is put into the Pi and then powered on, to no...

NOOBS v1.3.7 Installation Error

Hello all, I'm having problems when trying to install Raspbian from NOOBS 1.3.7 onto my SD card. Here are the steps I took: Installation Steps: 1. Inserted the SD card into the Raspberry Pi. 2. Plugged in HDMI, Keyboard, Mouse, Ethernet and power cable in that order. 3. Strangely, it initially took ...

autoexec scripts for raspi-config

Is it possible to run a script that is automatically executed from power on, that can alter the settings of raspi-config ? I need to enable SSH in raspi-config , but I need to do it by remote. I want to write an autoexec script that can be copied to the SD card then the Pi will automatically run it,...

Re: Remote Connections, VPNs and Proxies

@HiroProtagonist - Thanks very much as that really clears a lot of things up! If your router will allow it, you should coinfigure it to forward some other port to port 22. Leaving port 22 open will result in loads of 'bots trying to log in as 'root', which if nothing else will fill your logs with cr...

Re: Remote Connections, VPNs and Proxies

Set up your router to forward a port of your choice [say 8822] to port 22 on the pi. The one bit I struggle to follow is using a port (e.g. 8822) to access another port (22). Again, my knowledge of port forwarding is not amazing. My router (Netgear DG834G) is only capable of basic port forwarding, ...

Re: Dead Pi?

Any other ideas on what the problem could be? Could it be anything else other than the SD card reader at fault?

Re: Dead Pi?

@ GTR2Fan - I've tried them both with exactly the same hardware including PSU. Same keyboard, mouse and display to rule out any external factors that might be considered. @ drgeoff - The connectors on the back of Pi-2 seem to protrude away from the plastic bracket of the SD card reader. However, the...

Dead Pi?

I have checked all the points in the "boot sticky" before writing here. I bought my first Pi in January from RS (Pi-1) and used it successfully with an 8GB Class 6 SD card (SD-1). I liked it so much, I bought a second Pi in February (Pi-2) from Farnell/CPC. I downloaded the latest NOOBS (v...

Re: Remote Connections, VPNs and Proxies

Hi John, Thanks for your reply. - What is the best way to use SSH on the Raspberry Pi? - How can I improve on the Pi's security in order to prevent the Chinese from attacking it? - My ISP provides me with a dynamic IP so it will change every few days or so. I use a wireless router (but the Pi will b...

I would like to leave one of my Raspberry Pi's here, always on and connected by Ethernet to my router. I would somehow like to co...
