Tutorial: How to Set Up a Raspberry Pi Web Server People are doing a lot of cool things with the Raspberry Pi. One of the first things I thought to do was to see if I could make a Raspberry Pi web server. Being a web developer and overall geek I figured it might be kind of fun to do, and as I found out it’s really easy. Raspberry Pi Static IP Address & how to configure course Tutorial. The Raspberry Pi is automatically set to obtain an IP address from your wired or wireless network. Why does the Raspberry Pi need an IP address? This address is needed so that any traffic destined for your Raspberry Pi will be able to find it on the network. This is method of obtaining an IP address is called DHCP or Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. It is sometimes referred to as a dynamic IP. Your router will normally distribute these IP addresses but it isn’t guaranteed that it will get the same IP address every time.
Free dynamic DNS for your Raspberry Pi No matter which services your Raspberry Pi is running you will want it to have a static address for global access, which is done by setting up a dynamic DNS service. In this guide I describe the steps you need to complete in order to set up a free dynamic DNS service on your raspberry Pi (yes, this also works for Raspberry Pi 2), so that you no longer have to worry about whether your external IP address changes once in a while. Whenever it changes, the dynamic DNS makes sure that your chosen website URL will always resolve to the current external IP of your Raspberry Pi. As I set up my Raspberry Pi Mumble server, I needed to have a static web address for everyone else to access it. It would be very troublesome having to tell everyone about it every time my dynamic IP changed. After a bit of research I decided to go with the free service provided by dnsdynamic.org, as it is both free to use and easy to set up.
Merry Christmas! Got a new Pi? Read on! If you’re here because you got a Raspberry Pi for Christmas, then Happy Christmas – and welcome to the Raspberry Pi family! If you’re just here for fun, then Happy Christmas too! The Raspberry Pi is a computer that you can use for all sort of brilliant and useful things, from learning to program, to making robots, to Tweeting when birds visit a nesting box, to taking pictures from the stratosphere. Here are some tips on setting up and using your Raspberry Pi. The most important thing is to make sure that you have the latest version of our New Out Of Box Software (NOOBS). You can check this by starting your Raspberry Pi – here’s Carrie Anne to tell you more.
Arc Software Consultancy using the Raspberry Pi The goal of this article is to configure the Raspberry Pi so that it can integrate into an existing Windows Networking environment without needing to make changes to any of the other, perhaps numerous, Windows PCs. I know that there are numerous other ways to achieve networking like this though so please don’t feel the need to tell me about them in the comments below. Please note that I will be doing a version of this article for the Apple Macintosh too. Remote SSH access to Raspberry Pi 2 (From Want to deploy a Raspberry Pi "in the field" and still be able to access it? Here is an easy way to enable remote SSH access to your Raspberry Pi 2 (and other models, too). While there are solutions involving a VPN or configuring port forwarding at a local firewall, those are often hard to manage for non-experts.
Turn a Raspberry Pi into a Personal VPN for Secure Browsing Anywhere You Go If you're in a coffee shop, I could sniff your traffic as you log-in to Facebook, your email, your bank, Amazon, etc. Whether that's me physically being there or me rigging up a cheap rig like a pi to sniff and send me the results. There is no encryption between you and a WAN. This is pretty necessary when traveling (especially Eastern Europe).
Using Network Storage on the Raspberry Pi It is highly likely that you are using an 8GB SD or Micro SD card with your Raspberry Pi. This is adequate for many purposes, but if you fully load your Pi with additional applications (see my tutorial on installing more applications on your Pi), you may find yourself running short on space. Of course, you can use a larger SD card, but if you have a Network Attached Storage (NAS) at home, you can access and store files on the NAS. In this tutorial you will learn how to access that external device. Note, however, that there may be differences depending on what device you are using.
Access your Raspberry Pi over the Internet You can connect to your Raspberry Pi from another computer anywhere in the world over the Internet. One method is to use port forwarding. Port forwarding requires you to change the configuration settings on your router. You must configure your router to forward the Internet traffic delivered to your public IP address on a specific TCP port number, to automatically route to the local network IP address of your Raspberry Pi. Most routers have this feature available through their configuration webpage. However, every router is different and there is no single set of instructions that applies to every router in use today.
SSH into Raspberry Pi using Putty This post is for those who don’t have a separate screen for Pi or a TV with HDMI or have a screen with DVI port. To tackle this issue we have two options. Use a Converter ie. HDMI to DVI converter. (Costly & not reliable)Connect to Pi via SSH from your Windows or Linux computer (Free & reliable.) What is SSH ?
