Since I’m usually carrying a laptop anyway I find the easiest way to connect to a Raspberry Pi is using a USB serial cable and I didn’t think things could get any simpler – till now.
The AlphaServer DS10 has a separate processor on the system motherboard that allows and operator to control the system via the serial (console) port using the Remote Management Console (RMC).
I use the following python script to connect automatically to my wireless network, set the time and configure the FTP service on my device.
I used the following commands to connect to my Pycon WiPy 2.0 development board and up load a new ‘boot.py’ script to the flash folder.
When I received my Pycon WiPy 2.0 board the first thing I did was to work out how to connect it to my network, normally you would do this automatically in the ‘boot.py’ script but before you an update this … Continue reading
Having received my new ‘pysense’ expansion board I quickly discovered that I needed to update the firmware.
Having got my WiPy connected to my Wireless network I wrote the following script mainly as a way of testing the process of updating main.py (which is the python script that is executed automatically when the4 WiPy 2.0 finishes booting), … Continue reading
By default the WiPy 2.0 advertises it self as a wireless access point with a default SSID, IP address, username and password. This makes sense as the factory default since unless you use the USB serial console the only way … Continue reading
While browsing the RS catalog the other evening (I lead an exciting life) I came across the WiPy 2.0. It is most certainly NOT the same sort of beast as a Raspberry Pi but it isn’t meant to be! It … Continue reading
Normally unless you are a super user you will get the following error message (or something similar) when you try to run a scripts that attempts to modify the Sense HAT display.
