Set up an Ad-filter with Privoxy on Raspberry Pi for free

I hate ads… They are for many companies, unfortunately, the main source of income. So, they are a necessary evil in today’s world where everything is expected to be free of charge. In general, I use an anti-advertisements filter in the browser. Now I use AdBlock for Chrome. It is available for FF and IE as well. But, what do you do with mobile devices which, normally, don’t have such a filter? You use a filtering proxy or gateway. To set up a gateway with a transparent proxy (or filter) is more complicated. To set up a filtering proxy is very simple and here…

HowTo: mount a USB hdd in Debian and share it for all users without authentication

All these I needed to do on my RaspberryPI so that I can share a mounted USB drive to the entire network and to be accessible fully without any authentication.

Buy the Logitech C270 USB HD Webcam from Amazon.de.   2. install the software and add the kernel module sudo apt-get install guvcview -y sudo modprobe uvcvideo sudo echo uvcvideo >> /etc/modules 3. Start X and the video software startx Start -> Sound and Video Choose guvcview   You have video 🙂 In my…

Enable two-factor authentication for the SSH on your Raspberry PI

I am a big fan of RPi and I allowed one of my RPis (I have 3) to be accessible from the Internet via SSH. But, I was stressed because somebody might do a DoS on my device with the intent to hack into it and this way would prevent me to access it. So, wanting to secure it, I researched a bit how to enable two-factor authentication for SSH. I don’t want expensive SMS services, actually I don’t want to pay anything at all. I found some great tutorials on the net, and here is my take on how…

AirPi #1: set up AirPi on your RaspberryPi running Raspbian

Initial source: http://trouch.com/2012/08/03/airpi-airplay-audio-with-raspberry/ What is AirPi? AirPi is the RaspberryPi implementation of Apple’s protocol called AirPlay. Using AirPlay you can send audio and video streaming from you Apple Device (ipad, iPod, iPhone, Mac) to RaspberryPi. This implementation is sending only the sound.   Why all this trouble? Do you know those expensive devices called Sonos? I want to do the same using a Raspberry Pi and a cheap radio I got for free with a magazine ( popcube.de ). I will post pictures here.   Why AirPi and not XBMC’s AirPlay support?   I guess because XBMC is using a lot…
