So … you’ve got a Pi3 running as a Docker host with some services that you want your buddies to have access to. You could try and get them to SSH into your home network; just like you could type all your programs with a touchscreen. I’m going to use nGinx to setup a reverse-proxy from my real-Pi3 to various Docker containers based on URL rewriting. I’m doing something else (of course) I’m setting up (what I call) name-based-virtual-hosting.
I’ve been assembling a “full stack”1 for development that runs on my Pi3. This is all happening inside of Docker containers which made cleanup redonkulously easy. Today I was looking at a source code management system; something of a “my own GitHub” which I can run on my own network. We have GitLab at work; so I wanted something different … also; the authors don’t suggest using a Pi3 for “real.
Login to your pi’s terminal, and run the following two commands. sudo su wpa_passphrase YOUR_SSID You’ll then be asked to enter the passphrase and confirm the passphrase. If they match; you’ll see a blurb that’s a config file fragment. Good. Now (still as su) repeat the last step, but pipe-append the output to the supplicant file. wpa_passphrase YOUR_SSID >> /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf You won’t see the instructions this time - but that’s okay.
This is a followup to a previous post because that one stopped working, now - this works. There’s not a lot of OC here, just clarity. NameCheap DynDNS on a Pi3 I use NameCheap (because they’re anti-SOPA) for DNS. The client program, ddclient, can connect to NameCheap. I’m using raspbian, so, first; run sudo apt-get install ddclient on your Pi find the dynamic DNS settings on NameCheap’s website Dashboard >>> Domain List >>> Manage >>> Advanced DNS they do like to change these things around halfway down the page, there should be a DYNAMIC DNS thingie enable it (if you haven’t already) note the blurb-what-looks-like-a-SHA edit your /etc/ddclient.
This has been replaced Pi3 DynDNS I want to give my home’s Raspberry Pi3 a DNS name so that I can access it more easily. DNS and Dynamic IP Addresses The Domain Naming System is how those readable textual names like example.com become the actual IP Addresses like 127.0.0.1 that web pages, email, and everything else needs to work. Various groups allow people to register a domain (or subdomain) and specify the IP address of a computer that the domain should reffer to.
