Intro[edit]

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.

Setup[edit]

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 172.22.32.20/32 dev lo
$ ip addr show
...
  • Apache config at: /etc/apache2/sites-available/help
...
DocumentRoot /var/www/help
