Subject: [Raspberry_Pi_4-Ham_RADIO] Windows GUI - one approachDave,This is what I use for accessing the pi for a Windows machine - others will no doubt have their own preferences.Download MobiXterm from http://mobaxterm.mobatek.net/download.html - the free version is fine. This is a combined ssh client (based on putty) and X server. It has a lot more besides, includind a remote desktop client.Run MobiXterm. If you have used putty, any saved sessions will be imported. Click the Session button, then click SSH. Enter the address of your pi and connectRun a program that uses X - for example nedit, my usual source editor (you may need to do sudo apt-get install nedit - I cant remember if it is part of the stadard distro). The program will popup on the Windows machine.Normally this is all that is needed. If you want to access the pi desktop (I find that useful when setting up bluetooth). you can use remote desktop:Install xrdp in the pi - sudo apt-get install xrdp.in MobiXterm click Session then RDP. enter the address of the pi. After a few seconds the pi desktop will appear.73, John G8BPQHi Jeff..
For the rest of us, who are not 'nix guru's, perhaps you'd like to
explain how you got the CPU% from the "uptime" figures. For instance,
just what do the three figures show, in detail?
Also, though I know how to SSH to the Pi (and other 'nix boxes) with
tools such as PuTTY (even run it as a sort of crude VPN, forwarding ports
each way when needed) I don't have a clue how you'd run an X
server/terminal on a local (to me) machine and connect it to the (remote)
target. I know it can be done, as many have mentioned it on this and
other lists, but as yet, I've not seen any definitive "how to" showing
what to do, to get that working.
Please don't say "read the man pages"... They are c**p for anyone trying
to learn this stuff from scratch, but are very good as a reminder if you
once knew it all and just need a push back in the right direction. Also,
though they often give nausiating detail as to what a tool or funcion
does, they don't actually tell you HOW to use it, and why you'd want or
need to use it.
Lastly, though all the above is presumably written down somwhwere, it's
rarely if ever in one place, and we all have other lives, jobs, family
etc that have a priority setting way above fiddling with radios and Pi's
etc. At least I'm told that by domestic management... Whatever, there
is little time to do hard reaseach to find out for ourselves first hand,
but if we were "educated" by someone who already knows, perhaps we could
contribute something more, and sooner.
In particular, some things "Not" to do, and importantly "why" not, is
good to know too. As I wish I knew some of those in the past before
making a time consuming (to correct the issue) mistake resulting in more
than one project being abandoned due to lack of time... That is why for
now, my Pi and it's accessories are in a box on the shelf. I just don't
have the time to figure stuff out from the ground up these days. I know
from talking to many others, they are in much the same boat too.
- Web-server is up most of the time, NOT 100%.... The URL is correct.
If you want to see my repeater dashboard it is: http://n1jmm.no-ip.org:81/ircddbgateway.php
Only 2 of my web-servers are open to internet
