SSH: Connection Reset by Peer – Server Fault

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/11/22

One occasion I had SSH throw a Connection Reset by Peer on my when was the SD-card of a Raspberry Pi started failing and the ext4 filesystem got mounted in read-only mode.

Then sshd was still listening on port 22, but since it could not write to disk any more, it threw a Connection Reset by Peer to the client.

It was on OpenSuSE Tumbleweed, but would failed just as well using Raspbian.

Lessons learned:

  • IoT hardware will fail.
  • ext4 breaks when the hardware breaks.

Is a raspberry pi 1 good enough for a pihole server? : pihole

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/04/10

Many people use it that way. Which means I can put it on an old Raspberry Pi B+ revision 1.2 board (which Wikipedia indicates as the B 1+ in the Specifications table but as Raspberry Pi 1 Model B+ revision 1.2 in the schematics of connectors).

I might consider DietPi as distribution (which is Debian based) as it is even ligher.

See [WayBackhttps://www.reddit.com/r/pihole/comments/6h39zr/is_a_raspberry_pi_1_good_enough_for_a_pihole/#divw0i5

One more note: I need to check out which Debian base name (which indicates the version) works best as there seemed to be a dnsmasq issue (not archived because discourse hatesdislikes the WayBack machine and Archive.is):

Like Apple, Android and Delphi, they use name based versions of which I always forget the order of. Luckily the source of the below table gets updated over time [2017 Archive.is2018 Archive.is] Debian releases and names – Electric Toolbox Debian releases are named after characters from Toy Story and are frequently referred to with the name rather than the version.:

Version Code name Release date Toy Story character
1.1 Buzz 1996-06-17 Buzz Lightyear
1.2 Rex 1996-12-12 Rex (the T-Rex)
1.3 Bo 1997-06-05 Bo Peep
2.0 Hamm 1998-07-24 Hamm (the pig)
2.1 Slink 1999-03-09 Slinky Dog
2.2 Potato 2000-08-15 Mr Potato Head
3.0 Woody 2002-07-19 Woody the cowboy
3.1 Sarge 2005-06-06 Sarge from the Bucket O’ Soldiers
4.0 Etch 2007-04-08 Etch, the Etch-A-Sketch
5.0 Lenny 2009-02-14 Lenny, the binoculars
6.0 Squeeze 2011-02-06 Squeeze toy aliens
7 Wheezy 2013-05-04 Wheezy the penguin
8 Jessie 2015-04-26 Jessie the cowgirl
9 Stretch 2017-06-17 Rubber octopus from Toy Story 3
10 Buster not yet released Andy’s pet dog
11 Bullseye Not yet released Woody’s horse
Sid “unstable” The next door neighbour

MX Backup – Postfix Email Server | samhobbs.co.uk

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/11/09

Interesting as it has steps for both OpenSuSE and Debian each well suited for running on a Raspberry Pi.

[WayBackMX Backup – Postfix Email Server | samhobbs.co.uk

It seems postfix is a lot easier to configure than sendmail so I already like it.

First I need to read a bit more in Postfix greylisting.

I’ll need to catch up on Sam’s other parts with the postfix tag as well:

Raspberry Pi brexit – changing your locale away from GB when you’ve a different keyboard

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/10/02

A while ago I wrote about -bash: warning: setlocale: LC_ALL: cannot change locale (en_US.UTF-8) on fresh Raspbian on Raspberry

I thought my locale issues were solved and they sort of were. Until I had to logon locally and managed to get one or more of these characters in my password:

  • ~ (tilde)
  • @ (at)
  • # (hash)
  • \ (backslash)
  • | (pipe)
  • " (double-quote)

Then logon would fail locally but work via ssh. Go figure!

Lot’s of people outside the UK using their Raspberry Pi with keyboard and monitor will now say: you’ve the default GB keyboard layout and your keyboard is not GB.

Bingo!

This is how US keys look when using a GB keyboard layout:
