@Maximilian-Gerhardt I was thinking to remove the jack and solder to the points. I didn't know about Ethernet ports having integrated transformers though. I found a close-up of the board and I see a transformer after, but it would be hard to know for sure without taking one apart.
Assuming the transformer is on the board and not the port, would that work?
Awesome tutorial and really cool idea! I am running into an issue though and thought maybe you would know how to help me out since you just did this. When I go to initialize my postgres db, it gives me this error:
fixing permissions on existing directory /root/pgdata ... initdb: could not change permissions of directory
"/root/pgdata": Operation not permitted
pg_ctl: database system initialization failed
I followed your instructions and did the chmod 777 /root/pgdata before initializing and it doesn't seem to be working. Does this make sense to you?
ping my webserver
run ifconfig to check for existence of apclio and local IP address
from result of both I could tell if I needed to call wifimanager to restart. Since b17* it's been stable enough to reconnect itself so I no longer use this and I cache data until I am able to connect again using urllib2.
This is my travelling demo unit I am working on. I added a Pi driven touch screen to the mix to allow for operator interaction with mysql in the onion via the onion AP, access control granted via a nifty little serial fingerprint scanner (can run on either pi or onion), barcode scanner and a little "closed loop machine demo" which contains 2 servo's and a microswitch that I still need to complete. It's come a long way since the veroboard prototype days! :)
I am not sure if Micro Robotics could ship internationally but sure they can help you locate a local supplier. I ordered one from banggood.com in china but it hasn't been delivered yet after 3 months of waiting
