Re: Transmission cannot connect with any port

It might be your Internet Service Provider, who might now is giving you a private IP.

Check your router to tell if you are now with an IP like 100.64.x.y

IPv4 address is in short.

My ISP did this once, during a dark windy night, without declaration. I asked them to switch back.

Re: remotely installing new noobs

B.Goode is right. I missed the apt source part.

Without editing apt source, you would get an up to date Jessie OS, and if you edited them, you could up to Stretch.

It's risky, so it would be better to have a plan B.

Re: IPtables configuration for different addresses?

MASQUERADE is SNAT. It would read the --to-source parameter from the actual interface which are used to send the packet. In your case, this interface could be eth0 or wlan0. The iptables do not route packets. Routing tables do that. So if you have both the eth0 and the wlan0 connected, you need to c...

Greetings. That's why we need the MASQUERADE target: http://www.iptables.info/en/iptables-targets-and-jumps.html#MASQUERADETARGET So you might use: sudo iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s 10.8.0.0/24 ! -d 10.8.0.0/24 -j MASQUERADE The "! -d" part is for filtering off those packet going back to 10.8.0...

Re: Raspberry Pi Desktop x86, will it work well on a 64-bit PC?

I think I was told that a 32bit application can not access more than 4gb memory, by the Kerbel Space Program.

So if you want to play some game like that, it would be better to go 64 bits.

Re: Raspbian Stretch (9.1) has arrived !!

It looks like upgrade from Jessie would keep the interface name in old way.

Alternatively , the new naming scheme could be disabled according to https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Softwa ... faceNames/

Code: Select all

Re: Any point with S.M.A.R.T. capable MicroSD cards?

Is it possible to run the Pi read-only, and let it post log to some where else, say, to an email box?

And there are SLC based SD cards. More erase cycle, more zero on price tag.

Re: Raspbian Stretch (9.1) has arrived !!

On my laptop, Stretch not work with USB WiFi dongle. Then I found this: https://lists.debian.org/debian-user/20 ... 01045.html

It looks like the new naming rule would give USB dongle a name based on MAC, which is very long, and for some reason, too long to work.

Anyway, I would try it tonight.

No it isn't. The version in Raspbian Jessie is 2.72-3+deb8u1. Raspbian Stretch has 2.76-5. The 2.76-5+rpi1 version is from the Raspberry Pi Jessie repo.
That's a bit complex.
