Help intranet page



The idea is once your are connected to the network you can just type help in your browser and you will find the answers to common questions. For example:

  • How do I play music/video in the space?
  • How do I connect to the printer?
  • Where can I get food?
  • etc...

I think this was originally created by Bert,the skin by Sandb and probably others were involved as well. I'm just documenting this here because because it took me a while to find where the extra ip's where configured.


Is currently hosted on Audio_System.

  • There is a DNS entry on the soekris in /etc/resolv.conf
  • On audio there is an IP address added to dev lo:
    • check the custom init script at /etc/init.d/extra-networking
$ ip addr add dev lo
$ ip addr show
  • Apache config at: /etc/apache2/sites-available/help
