Re: Control Pi through the web

Lots of helpful suggestions here. I thank you all
It is a steep learning curve for me, not having any experience with IP. I did not know my LAN from my WAN but the CLOUD (pun) is lifting slowly. Dataplicity and Wormhole seem to offer the easier solution. Will it work for me? Watch this space...

Re: Control Pi through the web

Thank you for your replies: I think my router only accepts Ethernet connections for port forwarding and I need Pi to connect wireless. I may use pie as a web server in the future, but for now, I just want remote control. I may have found the solution on my Router (if it works with TightVnc server a...

Re: Control Pi through the web

Thank you Heater,

I will consider your option, but I was hoping to somehow manage it without getting a domain name. I looked at port forwarding, but there did not seem to be a way using wireless. I am out of my depth, and suspect I will use your method before I drown.

Control Pi through the web

My Pi 2b is connected via an official USB wireless dongle to a Thompson router. I control Jessie (Debian 8) remotely using Tightvnc server, SSH (on the Raspberry Pi), Putty and TightVNC client on Windows 8.1 (my laptop), and through my local network. I hope to control Pi (wireless) from anywhere thr...

Re: The projects list. Look here for some ideas.

so, how about some home safety! I"m thinking about integrating an simple usb webcam, software motion control and perhaps the ability to communicate through IM when motioncontrol is triggered? Next step is to arm/disarm through IM and get the pictures/recorded video to your smartphone? (Pardon my en...

Re: Dark Screen

My LCD is connected through a ribbon see link: http://raspi.tv/2015/new-official-raspberry-pi-dsi-screen-launches Naively I thought purchasing a NOOBS SD card was all I needed beside the power supply--it is a touch screen. It seems you need the latest version of Raspbian to make my LCD work, and I h...

Re: Dark Screen

Hi,
Thank you for the reply. Does this mean I have fried my Pi by connecting to the laptop? I will look into "putty" and remote servers in the mean time.

Re: Dark Screen

I have tried connecting to my laptop with hdmi cable but can find no options to view the pie. I also downloaded (on the fourth attempt after using a different source) raspian, and also Win32DiskImage (beta) to install on a newly formatted sd card as I suspect my LCD needs the latest version to work....

Dark Screen

I am using a new Pie 2 B with PSU input via micro USB from output of "official " 7" touch WVGA LCD and 8GB NOOBS SD
I do not understand which mode of video I should be trying to get, or how to edit the recovery.cmdline file in NOOBS. (I don't have a keyboard).
