thansk ghans, then i'll change distro because I've seen other rdp solutions around, and that's what I need as it's headless.

On RaspBMC a

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install twm xdm x11-session-utils
should be enough to run graphical programs with MobaXTerm.

Hi,

* I haven't figured out how to get back out of fullscreen mode.
The default shortcut key is F11 and I can get that to work for
entering fullscreen mode, but short of pressing Ctrl+Shift+Esc
to bring up the task manager and manually shutting down the
MobaXterm process, I can't get back out of fullscreen mode.
Just press F11 again. Works for me.

Regards

Thanks, that worked. Here's how:

How do you transfer files from the desktop to the pi?

I can attempt it ok but I get a Permission error. Do I need to set up some kind of ftp directory on the pi?

Many Thanks
Hey got it, I created a new directory and changed the permissions on it to 777. Then changed them back.

Worked but I don't know the pitfalls of this

The problem I had was that I wanted to set up a Pi at a remote location (accessible via wifi) and run a python script on it. By using MobaXterm, the script terminated each time I exited the session.
TightVNC did the trick for me following the tutorial at http://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-rasp ... alling-vnc which included how to get it to autostart.

So, I installed it on the remote Pi before placing it in its new location, after which I was able to log in and run the python script. I appreciate I could have had the script run automatically in any case but I wanted to be able to access the desktop to check status etc.

Hi,

So can I use this to access my Pi when I'm away from home? Or does it only work on local networks?

Thanks in advance!

Yes, and No. In that order.

But you'll have to enable port-forwarding from your home router (or whatever network device connects your Pi to the internet.) That's something that is needed for almost every form of remote access, and is not unique to MobaXterm.

What ports do I have to forward? Can you explain to me a little bit about how that works?

This is probably a stupid question :lol: but when you say that the Pi and the Windows computer need to on the same network does this mean directly connecting your pi to the computer or is this a remote connection?

Thanks

You could try Internet Connection Sharing or Bridging ,
but i couldn't get that to work at all.

I discovered MobaXterm a few days ago and must say I am very impressed by what it can do!
Big thanks to the developer!

Did anybody manager to get those "ASCII graphics" to work? Like when you start raspi-config or mc.
Instead of showing lines around the border it shows a row/column of ââââââââ. In Putty I just had to set "Use UNICODE line drawing code points" and it worked.
Any idea how to do that in MobaXterm? I already tried to change the Charset to UTF-8 (Unicode) but it did not help.

Yessss!!
I managed to connect to my Pi from outside my house with MobaXterm (http://mobaxterm.mobatek.net). In case it could be useful to other people, here is the short procedure I followed:

0. Performed a "ip address show" command on my Pi to know its IP address:
I obtained "inet 192.168.2.36/24", which means my Pi address is "192.168.2.36".

1. Went to http://whatismyipaddress.com/ to know my public IP address (the address from which my house can be reached from the internet):
Let's assume I obtained "1.2.3.4" ;)

2. Added a new "Port forwarding" in my internet router configured like this:
port "22" from the internet is forwarded to "192.168.2.36" on port "22"
It means that when someone from outside my house connects to my internet router on port 22 (SSH), its connection is redirected to my Pi on port 22 (SSH).

3. Downloaded MobaXterm Home Edition here: http://mobaxterm.mobatek.net/download-home-edition.html and installed it.

4. Launched MobaXterm on my laptop connected to a Wifi hotspot outside my house

5. Created a new SSH session with the following parameter:
- Remote host: <my_internet_router_public_IP_address> ("1.2.3.4" in my case)
- Remote environment: "LXDE desktop"
...and I left all the other settings as-is.


That's all: after pressing OK and entering my Pi password, I was able to remotely connect to my Raspberry Pi desktop through a secure, encrypted SSH connection!

I hope this short explanation will help other people to perform remote connections to their Raspberry Pi!

Yes , as long the Pi is on the same LAN as your Windows machine and you know its IP.
