Re: HTTPS access for invites or HTTP only?

It is hard for people to remember typing in https instead of http when access tonido pages. This is risky from a laptop using public wi-fi as the password is show in plain text. Is there a way to configure tonidoplug to check a header or variable to redirect such http request to one that starts http...

Anyone successfully installed nx on tonidoplug?

I had followed http://computingplugs.com/index.php/Installing_FreeNX_server_and_NX_Open_Source_Components to install nx on the tonidoplug. All compilations seem to work but when connecting to the nx server on the tonidoplug, the window showed up and immediately disappears. The /var/log/nxserver.log ...

Re: adobe acrobat reader or any pdf reader for tonidoplug

You mean how to read PDFs stored on your TonidoPlug from another PC? It's done through the browser on your PC. You click on a PDF stored on your TonidoPlug, your computer downloads it and then uses Adobe Reader to open it. You don't have to install anything on the plug itself. Sorry for not making ...

adobe acrobat reader or any pdf reader for tonidoplug

The adobe acrobat only has x86 version for download. tonidoplug requires 'armel' version. Does anyone know if such a version is available for downloading?

Thanks for any info.

Re: Booting TonidoPlug using USB Drive

I just found out that boot from external usb hard drive actually works. You just can't simply reboot. You must unplug the power cord from the tonidoplug and then plug it back in with the usb hard disk attached already. This worked for all 3 different kinds of usb hard drives I have tried (WD My book...

Re: Booting TonidoPlug using USB Drive

Take a look here: http://plug.noloop.net/sheevaplug-hacks/installing-debian/ Look at the "U-Boot USB hard drive boot timeout trouble & workaround" section...you'd need to edit boot commands to make the timeout longer and add a "reset" to it in case it fails. The main problem...

Re: Can't sudo as non-root user

The solution to allow regular accounts to work is confirmed to be working for me as well. sudo also works after suid setting change.

Now tonidiplug is really working as claimed :-) Thanks a lot!

Thanks for the confirmations that the new tonidoplug may not be working as expected. Is there an old image file somewhere I can download and make this thing working again?

Re: Can't sudo as non-root user

I got the tonidoplug yesterday. The main reason I got it is to let it run as a low-power ubuntu server 24x7 so that I can ssh into it anytime, anywhere. But like many of you here I just realized that regular user accounts do not seem to work. This is not related with ssh. As root, I created local us...
