Re: no access to motion server

That means that motion either isn't running, or isn't listening on that port.
Is motion running ?

When motion is running, can you run a

lsof -i | grep 8081

Re: WiFi with a Tenda 311MI

Some more information would be useful.
Which OS ?
Are you using a powered hub ?
Have you done a full update of the OS ?

What tutorials did you try to follow ? What were the results when you followed the tutorials ?

Re: power from usb port?

I've been doing it for months without any issues.
That said, you do lose the protection of the F3 polyfuse by powering it through the USB rather than the MicroUSB port.

Impossible.
The firmware requires the boot partition to be in fat32 so that the firmware can read the files off the boot partition

Then it depends on how big your garden is haha. You could run a job every minute that will check the file, sleep for 30 seconds, and then check the file again. That sleep could be any period though, not just 30. it could be 5 seconds if you wanted. I'm using a Pi as a home security system of sorts. ...

I can't tell if that adapter actually uses a RT5370 chipset or not.
If it does, then it'll be easy to use as a hotspot.

Re: pi to pi wifi

If it's not a time critical application - i.e. you don't need to have an instant response, it'd be easy enough to have a program on Pi 1 write to a file, and then a program on Pi 2 read from the file on Pi 1.
This could be done with NFS between the 2 Pis

Re: pi to pi wifi

Is there a WiFi router / AP between the 2 ?
If there is, then it's as easy as if they were connected via ethernet.

If not then you could use one Pi to create an AP and the other can connect to it.
Then it's as easy as if they were connected via ethernet.

I have a script to get Raspbian down to around 600 megabytes.
Though you might be better off using the raspbian installer that HiFi made up if you want a truly minimal Raspbian install.

When the camera is streaming to two separate concurrent sessions, the CPU is around 20-22%, the total memory used is around 32MB. I have the 512MB board So I guess this should be fine.
