Re: DELUGE NOT WORKING

I use transmission but I don't know if it's any better or worse than deluge. Regarding your problem, my answer assumed you are using a standard broadband router to connect to the internet. The router needs to forward incoming torrent traffic to your pi based on the network port being used. Somewhere...

Re: DELUGE NOT WORKING

You probably need to forward the port used by deluge to your pi from your router. I don't use deluge so can't tell you how to find which port to forward, but it will be in the application settings somewhere. Alternatively switching on upnp on deluge and your router should work.

I too am looking for a 128gb microSD card for my new pi2.

Re: I can't access my web pages on R.P. LAMP server - Help!

So your problem is that dreamweaver doesn't set remote file permissions to allow read access to group and others.

I don't know anything about dreamweaver as it's not a package I use but I'm sure Google can point you at many previous questions and answers about this very specific problem.

Re: 128gb MicroSD Cards

It's too much of a gamble forking out for an expensive sd card. Those cards are not designed for the usage profile they get from running an OS, they're intended to write large blocks of data very rapidly, not do loads of I/O of small chunks of data. Exotic cards have been problematic with the Pi in ...

That's the right model of r-pi to get. The package is not cheap but if you want to play about with LEDs and cost isn't a problem then it's probably convenient to purchase the kit.

Re: What Version of Raspberry Pi should purchase

It is unlikely that the book covers the 2nd generation model but you should nonetheless buy a Pi 2, in my opinion. It has more computing power than a B+ and more memory and almost everything that the book discusses for an earlier model will also apply to the Pi 2.

Re: Is port surfing "allowed"?

The question that springs to mind for me is why would you want to do that? It's akin to walking down a street and testing car doors to see if they're locked. Irrespective of whether it is illegal in itself it implies some sort of nefarious intent.
