  1. Oh man! That's a GREAT looking addon and use for RPi! I bet openmediavault would run well on this type of setup to...and with it being so small...it could easily be a portable NAS for certain Thanks for posting this!
  2. Almost makes me want to gut a really old toughbook I have and put in one of these 64bit SBC into it...
  3. A bit of software that might be interesting to those that wish to use the IO's of Pi type boards https://github.com/Nikolay-Kha/PyCNC Typically there is no way to control stepper motors from Linux runtime environment due to the lack of real time GPIO control. Even kernel based modules can not guarantee precise control of pulses for steppers. However, we can use a separate hardware module, DMA (Direct Memory Access) which provides high precision for GPIO outputs. This module can copy bytes which represent GPIO states from RAM buffer directly to GPIO with some clock based on main chip internal oscillator without using CPU's cores. Using such approach this project generates impulses for moving stepper motors and that is very precise way regardless CPU load and OS time jitter. This approach also allows to use Python language for this project. Typically, Python is not good choice for real time application, but since project just needs to set up DMA buffers and hardware will do the rest, Python become the perfect choice for easy development of this project.

  4. Just thought you developers might enjoy this... It uses a CRAZY cheap module, becomes a serial to wifi bridge, outputs on the module can then be connected to a standard serial tx/rx, 5v/gnd, and not only does it have a webgui, but also a web console https://github.com/jeelabs/esp-link The esp-link firmware connects a micro-controller to the internet using an ESP8266 Wifi module. It implements a number of features: transparent bridge between Wifi and serial, useful for debugging or inputting into a uC flash-programming attached Arduino/AVR microcontrollers and LPC800-series and other ARM microcontrollers via Wifi built-in stk500v1 programmer for AVR uC's: program using HTTP upload of hex file outbound REST HTTP requests from the attached micro-controller to the internet MQTT client pub/sub from the attached micro-controller to the internet serve custom web pages containing data that is dynamically pulled from the attached uC and that contain buttons and fields that are transmitted to the attached uC (feature not fully ready yet)
  5. Found this..not sure if it will work or not 7.6.2 Uninstallation in Linux To uninstall the Linux version of VPN Server when vpnserver is registered as a service, you must perform the following operation. Execute the /etc/init.d/vpnserver stop command to stop VPN Server. Execute the /sbin/chkconfig --del vpnserver command to delete registration of vpnserver as a service. Delete the /etc/init.d/vpnserver file. After performing the above operation, delete the directory where vpnserver is installed.
  6. Most definitely...trying to do it over wifi could cause some REAALY bad lag
  7. Pi-hole install...default gateway/router change the DHCP to point to the pi-hole inside your network (better yet...setup your pi-hole as your internal network DHCP server, tell it to point all DHCP clients to default gateway , let it assign the IP's [you can even set "STATIC leases with MAC addresses of hardware]) I set mine up on an old busted screen dual core laptop (that also runs my 3D printer), but it will function just fine on a RPI or Orange Pi...it really doesn't have tons of overhead. Make your default gateway (if it can) force all port 53 (DNS) requests to your pi-hole LAN IP I just wish PFsense worked on ARM..would put it on a OPi R1, two 100mb ethernet...how many people have over 100mb connections outside their LAN.

    All the information you can think of on an easy and simple webgui https://github.com/netdata/netdata Even has a really simple script to download all deps and compile the program for you https://github.com/netdata/netdata#quick-start Just thought you folks might be interested...if it's linux...this will work on it
  9. Nah...I trust their "testing" builds before I trust the releases from the Orange Pi manufacturers
  10. Ok I installed Softether with the package...easy simple install It's not for me How do I stop it from starting every boot Was able to shut it down by going into /usr/local/vpnserver and running ./vpnserver stop But there is no /etc/init.d autostart script...where can I comment out to prevent it from starting again...removing I realize is a nogo...just don't want it to startup anymore
  11. You mention "Using the ad-hoc mobile app (download it from Android or Apple store)" Got links? Got video's on how this works?
  12. found some links...might help https://askubuntu.com/questions/512926/how-to-configure-wifi-adaptor-to-monitor-mode https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/224749/putting-network-interface-in-promiscuous-mode-not-monitor-mode Maybe some github projects could help https://github.com/jldupont/jldcmds it seems not all drivers/devices support promiscuous mode
  13. What does journalctl look like $sudo journalctl https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-systemctl-to-manage-systemd-services-and-units From the snip of top, it also shows systemd -lo+ high as well Might need to see what in systemd is running so hard and shut it off have you done a apt-get update and apt-get upgrade yet?
