Re: Forwarding Port 22 (SSH) stopped working [RP3 / Raspbian

I realize that this an old thread, but I'm having exactly the same issue - Pi is not responding to port forwarding on a newly installed Pi Version 2 with Jessie -- New Pi V2 and fresh Jessie install with all of the updates. Details: I have my Pi's on a NetGear router which is itself connected to ano...

Well, nothing seems to have fixed the issue so I could continue to use DHCP and get the IP assignment based on the MAC rules in my routers. I have fallen back on assigning static address in the dhcpcd.conf file...RDK

Pi v2 - Jessy Shutsdown unexpectly

I'm running a Raspberry Pi V2 with Jessie and the latest updates. The unit is set up to bridge eth0 and eth1. It is listening to traffic on my network via TCPFLOW and a Python program which is running in a disconnected Screen session. It has been working just fine, then yesterday is shutdown unexpec...

As with a lot of folks I'm confused about the networking setup in Jessie. Now, after lots of reading, experimenting and head scratching I though I had had it figured out. But... Questions: 1. My wired network is managed by a SonicWall firewall router. Most IP addresses are assigned based on the MAC ...

Re: Connecting a Pi to a PC

Folks.... A working method is to set a static IP on the Pi to 169.254.64.64 and then you can just use that address if you plug it into a PC Ethernet port as your PC will allocate itself an address in the 169.254 range Over the past few days I've experimented with just plugging eth0 on a Pi V2 Jessie...

The Jessie build seems to be very sluggish, often taking several seconds to respond to an "Up Cursor" key stroke. ...
