RPC for AdvaBoard RPi1 / Raspberry Pi RPC
To access the AdvaBoard RPi1 or the Raspberry Pi remotely over a network, RPC (remote procedure call) can be used. This directory contains such a simple example, using the lightweight JSON-RPC.
The server must be started on a Raspberry Pi.
The example-server can be started by:
sudo ./am_rpi_rpc-server.py PORT
PORT can be any port, but usually port > 1000 should be used.
All communication is stored in the logfile am_rpi_rpc-server.log, and errors are stored in am_rpi_rpc-server.err. You can use the following commands to start the server and watch the logfile:
sudo ./am_rpi_rpc-server.py PORT & tail -f am_rpi_rpc-server.log
Note that the example-server does not use any authentification or encryption, and so should only be used in trusted networks, since anyone on the network can access the Raspberry Pi/AdvaBoard RPi1.
For production use, authentification, encryption and some kind of rights-management-system should be added. Please contact email@example.com if you need support for this task.
The client can be started on any computer, which has a network-connection to the Raspberry Pi, by.
The example-client can be started by:
./am_rpi_rpc-client-example.py IP PORT
where IP must be the IP-address of the Raspberry Pi, and PORT must be the port of the server.
If working correctly, this should print something like:
Connecting to RPC-server on 192.168.178.96:31415... Init Raspberry Pi... Raspberry Pi information: Model: B Revision: 2.0 512MB (14) Manufacturer: Sony Serial: 0x12345678 / 305419896 AdvaBoard RPi1 information: Model: AdvaBoard RPi1 Revision: 1 Serial: 11160xxxxx F912-firmware: 20140219 F353-firmware: 20140219 CPLD-firmware: 0x01 LED...
and the AdvaBoard RPi1-LED should blink afterwards.
Another client is the graphical user-interface, which can be found at ../am_rpi_gui/.
