Hi there,

as far as I know yes it does, but, my phone does not (or at least, not to my knowledge!)

Re: NOIP - two different LAN's

Thanks for confirming. My only 'problem' is that I cannot seek to get the pi to direct the query via the wlan0 when eth0 is connected.

Re: NOIP - two different LAN's

Thanks for the reply.

I did get a reply from No-IP and they confirmed they are unable to maintain two addresses from one client. so for now at least, I just have to move the connection to the ISP.

Now I have another problem....

Re: NOIP - two different LAN's

Much obliged. Hopefully as you say I will get a reply to my message.... time will tell! alternatively, whilst its not ideal at all, the short term answer may have to become "swap the leads", or, find a way to script linux to disable the eth0 and USB drivers for up to X time, allowing only wlan0 comm...

Re: NOIP - two different LAN's

I have only the free service, but if I was told what it would be plausible I would then go forward and purchase the service.

Ultimately though its what I was hoping to achieve and by all accounts you are suggesting this isnt plausible :(

Re: NOIP - two different LAN's

Thanks for the reply. The only thing I cannot find is how to control this. obviously the original noip setup is using the ethernet interface, but if I use something like ddclient for example, it just forces a check on the eth0 and not wlan0. Are you aware of noip implementation to achieve this? thanks

Thanks Guys, I was hoping it would be relatively simple.

Does anyone know if VNC would need to be re-registered? I expect it would be but just want to ensure!

Re: Monitoring Pi Voltage?

Thanks for the reply.... in which case I cannot quite make it more efficient by spinning down the disks, I suppose merely instead just reduce constant whirring of disks and may help to increase the lifespan.

Re: RPi3 - Running 2.5" HDD "off the shelf" - Risks?

Thanks Rattus,

I was previously reading up things like the poly fuses and their limitation and the output of the USB port being 0.6amps.

To clarify there should be no ill effects as long as the voltage is sufficient to run pi and HDD?

Thanks FOTL, I think its wise now to get the card built, get it updated as far as I can then I may start a new thread and keep all discussions, I think all three of my seperate issues I was trying to keep seperate but they do all link to the same problem!

Re: Pi3 - Using SD as FS and USB as data drive

Many thanks again FOTL,

I can understand the terminology differences now!

Otherwise though does Noob extend the OS, as it seems to create an "extended partition" but not much more.... alternatively, the standard root OS appears to remain as 1.7GB
