EasyShare now using fakeidentd

August 07, 2018 — BarryK

I posted about the rewrite of EasyShare a few days ago:

Which appeared in EasyOS 0.9.6 released a couple of days ago.

Then yesterday, examined using fakeidentd server for network discovery:

Puppy Forum member 'step', a longtime contributor on the forum, sent me a pm about another way to query fakeidentd, using 'telnet'. Like this:

# { printf \\n; sleep 1; } | telnet 113

Busybox has a telnet applet, though my current configuration of busybox does not have it.

Very nice, thanks very much for that info. As I have the '' perl script working, staying with that for now. EasyShare is now modified to use fakeidentd, and I have tested, works great.

Running 'easyshare' from a terminal, noticed an error message, although the sshfs connection worked:

do_known_hosts: hostkeys_foreach failed: No such file or directory

It was a one-off message, I discovered because folder /root/.ssh did not exist. Fixed.
