Need DSLstats on RPi headless with Webserver

Next project now I've built and got my new pfsense box running as expected is a headless raspberry pi 2 serving  dslstats via it's or an-other webserver that would be plugged into the second port only on my HG612 which I can connect to via wifi etc. I've no intrest in serving the stats elsewhere.

I tried this a few years ago running dslstats on an Rpi but that was using a full version of the distro then connecting with Screenneedless to say it was less than ideal and very laggy, trying for an hour or so today I can't seem to get the webserver to show any stats running from a VM's own browser. 192.168.1.88:55555 gives a white page while trying to append anything to the end ie *.html or *.txt      gives a page errorIs this a permissions thing ?

How do I get rid a the damn pink line thing!

Re: Need DSLstats on RPi headless with Webserver

If you're trying to access the server the you need to use http://192.168.1.88:55555/snrm.html

Re: Need DSLstats on RPi headless with Webserver

Tried all that, still no good. I can see the server running in the background but still no luck.

Not sure if it has anything to do with permissions on Mint anyway.

Re: Need DSLstats on RPi headless with Webserver

@30FTTC06, is it running Apache? If it is make sure it's listening to the correct address and port:

Listen 192.168.1.88:55555

and your <Directory ...> entries allow for connections from your LAN(s).

Order deny,allow
Deny from all
Allow from 192.168.1.1/24

Edit:- These are of course in your /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file

Re: Need DSLstats on RPi headless with Webserver

I thought it was all in the package, do I need to configure an apache server then seeing as I don't even know how to configure apache ?

Re: Need DSLstats on RPi headless with Webserver

Well I don't know if Mint (or even Raspbian) has a default HTTP server maybe one of the other guys do. But assuming it doesn't then you need to install it and configure as needed.

I use Arch Linux on Pi as anything with a GUI is wasted when there's SSH.

Re: Need DSLstats on RPi headless with Webserver

Apparently dslstats has it's own integrated web server.  So no, you don't need to install apache - Which can be very easy but is often very complex.

Try running

netstat -nlp | grep 55555

If the above indicates dslstats is listening on an interface you should then be able to connect to and download the home page.

telnet localhost 55555

GET / HTTP/1.1 host:localhost connection:close <cr> <cr>

 

If that is the case, check your firewall configuration.

Re: Need DSLstats on RPi headless with Webserver

OK, looks like it's serving from apache so you'll need to tweak your config file as required. Also do not assume that the HTTPD daemon is running, the easiest way I use is :

top | grep httpd

If it's running you'll see something like this:

442 root      20   0  136.3m   8.3m   0.0  0.1   0:02.28 S  `- httpd                                                                                                                 
  894 http      20   0  426.3m   8.1m   0.0  0.1   0:12.60 S      `- httpd                                                                                                             
  895 http      20   0  426.3m   8.1m   0.0  0.1   0:12.51 S      `- httpd                                                                                                             
  896 http      20   0  426.3m   8.1m   0.0  0.1   0:11.76 S      `- httpd

Otherwise there will be nothing. Just press q to quit regardless of the output.

Re: Need DSLstats on RPi headless with Webserver

I can see some form of server running...

netstat -nlp | grep 55555
(Not all processes could be identified, non-owned process info
will not be shown, you would have to be root to see it all.)
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:55555 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 4597/dslstats

 

telnet localhost 55555
Trying 127.0.0.1...

Re: Need DSLstats on RPi headless with Webserver

So once telnet has connected...Did you try typing the rest of what I posted earlier?

GET / HTTP/1.1
host:localhost
connection:close
<cr>
<cr>

I may not have made it clear, that is what you need to do.  <cr> is a carriage return on an otherwise blank line.  You need two of those consecutively before the webserver will process the request.
