How to control GPIO Pins over a wifi network from RPi to Rpi.

I would like to control the gpio pins of a secondary Pi from a primary Pi over wifi. I can get the Pi Zero W's to connect to an ad hoc or access/client network. But I am not sure where to start for the GPIO control from one Pi to the next. My goal. Push a button on Pi 1 and control the GPIO out put ...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

ras07 Thanks for the input. I may have been making it harder that it has to be.

I like your idea of two urls. I may use that for a future project.
This one is for them to play with.

Think cheap gopro with no sound and ridiculous battery life. 3~4 hours.

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

Has anyone set this up with a captive portal? I have it setup in apache and am currently building one in lightpd. The RPi is its own hotspot. I would like for it to force me to the appropriate web page when I join its network and open a browser. And not have to enter the appropriate ip address. This...

Re: Pi as offline Wireless Access Point

I am also interested in this.

I have a project with a similar need.
Access wifi on pi with no internet. But access a captive portal to a specific web page hosted on the pi.

Re: I can no longer setup Rpi zero w headless. SSH problem

Turns out it is just something wrong with one of my pi zeros.

Sucks because it has a good camera connector.
At least I have 7 of them to play with though.

Re: I can no longer setup Rpi zero w headless. SSH problem

OMG............ I feel like a noob.

My windows machine hard drive had a crash recently.
So I am still getting it setup with all my preferred settings.

Hide file extensions was still selected.

So wpa_supplicant.conf was really wpa_supplicant.conf.txt!!!

Re: I can no longer setup Rpi zero w headless. SSH problem

Also.

New rasbian image.
Definitely not an apple product. I also noticed the lack of manufacturer.
I just ran a scan with the pi powered down. Not a duplicate ip address.

I have grabed another pi3 that i have hooked up to the 7 in screen with a keyboard.

Re: I can no longer setup Rpi zero w headless. SSH problem

100% for sure on SSH.

I have files saved that I just drag and drop in.
I then remove the .home or .work.
The .work2 is a new file I recently tried.
It removes the "scan_ssid=1" line in the conf file.

Latest version of stretch. Both full and lite. This is happening on older versions as well. Windows 7 64 bit. ...

Re: Date and time will not update with NTP

All is good. My time is now correct.

This is probably why all our computer clocks at work are off.
I will look into that and if so get with IT.

Re: Date and time will not update with NTP

Thanks for the answer.

I don't think I am going to be able to open the port as our network is pretty locked down.
This is on the work network. Company project.

I will look into the htpdate package. I don't need perfect time. Just close.
