LagartoMAX - panstamp - Documentation wiki and source code Lagarto-MAX is a lagarto process which receives, resends and processes events transmitted from any lagarto server running on the same IP network. Lagarto-MAX is a key piece into the lagarto architecture since it's able to integrate real values belonging to different networks and present them to the user in a homogeneous way. Moreover, being user-programmable, Lagarto-MAX can take decisions based on time or network events. Lagarto-MAX, due to its nature, is one of those components that will be continuously growing in functionalities.

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. A good way to do some programming on the Pi is to access the Pi file system over the network. The advantage this gives you is that you can speedily browse the web for snippets of code under Windows and then copy / paste them directly into a file on the Pi. This method works really well for me and it also allows me to easily back up my source code onto my main Windows machine.

Five free network analyzers worth any IT admin's time If you work on a network, you then know the value of information. Solid information leads to a strong and worry-free network (or at least as worry-free as you can manage). In order to gather that information, you need the right tools. The tools I speak of are network analyzers. Once you start looking, you can find analyzers of every shape, size, and price.

uServer Evaluation Need to deliver rich real-time HTML5 based GUIs to your end-users so they can remote control your device? Need to connect from apps or PCs to your device for secure remote access? Don’t have the time and money to configure or compile tedious TCP/IP-stack software into your firmware and don’t want the hassle of managing cloud services? 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.

6 free network vulnerability scanners Though you may know and follow basic security measures on your own when installing and managing your network and websites, you'll never be able to keep up with and catch all the vulnerabilities by yourself. Vulnerability scanners can help you automate security auditing and can play a crucial part in your IT security. They can scan your network and websites for up to thousands of different security risks, producing a prioritized list of those you should patch, describe the vulnerabilities, and give steps on how to remediate them. Some can even automate the patching process. + ALSO ON NETWORK WORLD 8 free Wi-Fi security tools + Though vulnerability scanners and security auditing tools can cost a fortune, there are free options as well.

HomeVision Home Automation Controller Imagine controlling your entire home with a hand-held remote while watching TV. View a complete system interface on your TV screen. Or from a web browser anywhere in your home (or in the world). Change the temperature of the AC system. Wi-Fi Protected Setup Flaws Make Wireless Network Brute-force Attacks Feasible Design flaws in the Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) wireless standard can make it easier for attackers to obtain access codes for secured wireless networks by brute force. The vulnerabilities identified by security researcher Stefan Viehbock affect a large number of WPS-enabled routers and wireless access points. The WPS standard was created in 2007 by the Wi-Fi Alliance in order to provide non-technical users with a simple method of setting up wireless networks. The standard supports several Wi-Fi authentication methods including one that requires pushing a physical button on the router and one that uses a predefined PIN number printed on a sticker by the device manufacturer. The PIN-based method is mandatory for WPS-certified devices, which support it by default. Devices that are WPS-capable, but aren't certified, are also likely to use the method.

Harmony Home Automation Server Harmony CBUS Interface Module C-Bus is a microprocessor-based control and management system for Buildings and Homes. It is used to control lighting and other electrical services such as pumps, Audio Visual Devices, Motors, etc. Harmony Dupline Interface Module Dupline is an advanced central control system. It can perform various intelligent control and network functions and at the same time operate as an interface to a PC via its Ethernet network connection. Harmony Rako Interface Module Rako modules use radio signals to communicate, eliminating the need for extra wiring. “Scenes” allow easy selection of preconfigured “mood lighting”.

Part 1 of 2: Home Automation with Arduino and OpenHAB – Wireless Sensor Integration Home automation and sensing using Arduino, OpenHAB, and MQTT. With emphasis on low cost (less than $20) wireless sensor nodes. Here’s an example using Arduino to monitor the position of a garage door, and wirelessly report the position to OpenHAB, to be displayed the web interface. Working with Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) Routing Protocol Because Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) is an open standard protocol, many people have contributed to its design and thousands upon thousands of people have reviewed it. In this section,some functional components of this interior gateway protocol (IGP) and its use in your networks will be highlighted. Because every IGP behaves slightly differently from other IGPs, you should be familiar with a few OSPF terms that are used with the protocol before jumping into the configuration commands. This section attempts to clarify the major terms and concepts you should be familiar with. OSPF as a link-state protocol
