So Linux Lite 2.6 runs quite well in this VM (Video)

So as the video below shows…Linux runs quite well on this Asus X553SA Laptop, with a mere 1.2 gb reserved for it.

More to come over the next few days as I test more Linux on the Laptop.

So How Long Does the Battery Last on a Dragon Touch X10?

1126306_fuel_gaugeThe answer is roughly 11 hours! I ran this server for 11 hrs always on time, primarily because I can’t keep the WiFi  “always on”, which is a glaring defect in the software, but beyond that, the damned thing was still alive this morning after leaving it on virtually forever.

So if you are concerned about battery life, it is not a worry! If you are concerned about about crappy software idiosyncrasies, like the WiFi not remaining on forever when commanded to, then worry.

Overall however, this thing is a really fun and useful tablet to own!

I know what fans of this site are thinking…why was it offline you bastard!?

So for my millions or tens of hundreds of millionths of followers, here is the scoop. The “LogiTab” and I went on a journey to a place where they serve you food and whilst sitting there whiling away the hours and watching sports on TV I updated all my other websites while passersby kept asking, “what sort of laptop is that?”.

Those idiots were treated to an explanation of the wonders of the LogiTab and it’s extremely low price.  Not one of those asshats offered me a tip for my advice on what NOT to waste your money on!

Oh well, life happens and now the LogiTab is back home on my crowded desk, once again serving up posts for its minions and followers.

and that’s the way it is, Dec 26th, 2015.

What does one do with a shiny new Asus laptop? Why of course they install a virtual machine!

i-virtual-machine-asusTonight’s project is to throw on a quick and dirty virtual server on the new Asus X553SA laptop I have.

Why would one do this you might ask, and the answer is because I can!

For the timid amongst you, step back and let us do our job. For those willing to play, give it a try! There will be links and stuff later.

So far not so good. The only port I can get the server to function on is 80. I have turned off the Firewall in Windows 10 and shut down the antivirus and yet it won’t work on 8080 or 8088. I suspect there is something blocking these ports, what that might be I do not know. That however is a 2morrow problem..

12/29/15:Update here, I installed a full copy of my primary server onto the laptop and it works just fine.

That is all,

Tim

Maybe it’s time for a new post! Tonight, how to direct traffic to your server through your wireless router.

maxresdefaultSo how does he do it? I know you are asking yourself that question! So the answer is simple really, really simple. It’s called port forwarding and address reservations. Yep that’s all you need to do.

The first thing you want to do is figure out the Mac address of your tablet. Easily done using your router’s control program. Look in your DHCP client list and it will generally be obvious which device is your tablet. You can install the NETWORK INFO II app from Google Play to find your current IP.

Now you simply go into forwarding, or on some router’s, virtual servers and direct the web port, which when using KSWeb is 8080 to the IP address.

From now on all traffic on port 8080 will go to your tablet. Pretty damned simple isn’t it? Virtually any newer router will be able to do this. Of course I run all my other servers on port 80 so the traffic is nicely separated. Sure there are probably high end router’s that can do a lot more, but if I can do this using a $14 TP-Link router most any router will do the trick.

So ends tonight’s lesson. Post via android Asus ME572 tablet, using a phone hotspot to uplink from the local laundramat.
