Is it possible to run Oneswarm headless?
Running headless?(8 posts) (5 voices)
This is on the roadmap, but it probably doesn't work (without X) right now. Right now, remote access is the best option if you'd like to use OneSwarm on a remote server.
If you decide to add this feature, could there be a setting not to run headless or at least make two type of builds one with one without? Some tracker hosts don't like this feature of Azeurus.
Headless support would be a great feature indeed. It would likely strengthen the network a lot since people would start running it on their seedboxes.
Just wanted to report that headless works fine, with the following tools:
1) Xvfb launched with Xvfb -nolisten tcp :1
2) Oneswarm launched with DISPLAY=:1 ./OneSwarm
3) a ssh tunnel to the server (ssh -D 3214 server)
4) Telling firefox to use the tunnel (socks 5, localhost, 3124, use the tunnel even for localhost (remove localhost and 127.0.0.1 from the list)
5) Connecting directly to oneswarm as usual, as if it ran locally. No need to enable remote access.
Has anyone tried this? I feel like a few good servers running oneswarm would improve the state of the network a lot.
As a side note, you should use GNU screen to run Xvfb and OneSwarm on the server. Works like a charm!
We're continuing to do some UI development, and hopefully will make this less painful.
We recently got rid of the last place where the Web UI popped up a native dialog box (for choosing a folder.)
Can people chime in with features that aren't in the Web UI that you use? It would be great to get to a place where all of the OneSwarm interface was available over the Web.
When will that new version be available? I tried sharing a file on my headless installation last week, and I was reminded of that native dialog box :)Posted 12 months ago #
