"Othernet-Online" test service


#1

Slightly more than just a proxy, attempting to give a little sampler to those curious about Othernet before they buy, or maybe just wanna play with the UI.

You get guest access, of course.

https://othernet.midnightchannel.net/

(if you accidently type outernet it will redirect :wink: )

My setup is a customized proxy frontend for Othernet, designed for public use and security (for example, it has SSL, + you should be unable to access the login screen at all).

For a proper, vanilla unmodified experience of Othernet, please see @kenbarbi’s link below.

Are you using a Dish? Signal is quite high with +2 to 3db.
But thanks for sharing.


#3

Yes, I repurposed an old DirecTV dish :slight_smile:

Just noticed radio is broken with this setup, so will try to work on that in the next couple of days.

I think everything else works.


#4

What diameter has the Dish? I’m currently testing the EU Beam and would like to compare the Signal Strenght a bit.


#5

Not sure, still new to this, neighbor gave it to me when he took it off his house.

This seems to be the dish I have:

Guessing 18x20" is the diameter :wink:


#6

For those interested, I have my Dreamcatcher 3.03 running Skylark 5.5 port forwarded to http://71.206.20.63/

Radio works now on mine.


#8

@zefie would you be willing to show me how you got that proxy working i would love to setup something like that to guard my othernet device also


#9

Here you go, I really didn’t write it up to “publishing standards” but if you can make sense of it have fun with it :slight_smile:

(for a lil extra security, if your firewall/router offers the option to whitelist addresses in the port forward, only allow your webserver’s IP to access your port forward)


Security? Yes please
